Now if I could just order 11 more of these for 2014, I’ll be very happy!

How did your December go?


In 2014 my husband & I downsized our home to speed up our quest for Financial Freedom. We swapped our large three bed house, for a small two bed apartment to clear our mortgage and give us enough budget freedom to travel and still save for the future. Our dream, after achieving Financial Freedom, is to spend part of every year living abroad.

  1. Saving so much in December was an amazing achievement, Laura. Hope I can develop a saving habit like yours in 2014. Best wishes for 2014 xo

  2. That’s a tight budget! 1600 to 1700 pounds total spending in a month is pretty remarkable. We’re hoping to get into that range (in dollars) in 2014.

  3. That is really good, especially the savings. It looks like no magazines leaped into your grocery cart :)

    • Ha! December was magazine purchase free…although I did get two on subscription. Both subs are nearly finished so I have to make the most of them lol.

  4. Happy New Year Laura! Looking forward to kicking it up a notch this year on our goals! :-)

    December was much the same as the rest of the year. I did increase the standing order which goes into the savings account; only by £10, but it does mean that we’re now saving 13% of our income each month. Considering how low our income is I’m really pleased.Every little really does help!
