Just grocery this week. My big haul on Monday and then a trip to a certain German supermarket on Friday for household supplies.


– £82.91 Grocery

– £16.54 Grocery (Household)

Five days into the New Year and we’re feeling positive about hitting our mortgage goal – making the first payment (+ a small over payment of £119.46) felt good……hopefully we can retain our focus for the next 11 over payments!

How did you do with your spending this week?


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.

    Spending for me up to now this year – zero, zilch, nothing … not a penny, and it’s a good job as I’ve only five lonely little pounds in my purse :-)

  2. Nice work with the extra payment. That’s like an investment with a guaranteed rate of return over the life of your loan.

  3. Got started with my spending diary and the new year’s spending is going well so far. Hope I can keep as focused as you :)
