Back in December I joined Sara (A Frugal Wife) in the £2,014 in 2014 Challenge*. The idea is to make and/or save an extra £2,014 throughout 2014.

*Our annual budget starts in December, so I’m doing this challenge until the end of November.

February Extra Income Total: £97.07
– £6.88 Book sales
– £0.19 Interest
– £90.00 Cash Back

Money saved, not spent*: £6.90!

*Money saved, not spent is from our budget categories (ignoring the mortgage payment).

My total for February was not too bad, but I’m still way behind the target. March should be better though as I have a couple of large items to sell.

2014 Totals: £352.39/£2,014


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. Hi
    How did you get the cash back? Was it just from purchasing itmes from a cash back site? I don’t really get how it works!

  2. Yay to the cash back & good luck for those March sales! Sx

  3. I have a stack of old board games I’m going to try to sell this month, to do like you and get some side income. Anything in particular you want to spend the extra coin on?

    Good luck with your challenge! I don’t really have any ways to earn extra income at present though I am thinking about the future when I retire. I may monetize my blog at some point but most efforts will be about living frugally on a pension!

    Good going on having a structure to your saving – especially when you consider the breakdown is £168 per month.
