p>How much money do we spend that we don’t need to?
I’ve no idea but after a trip to M & S where I spent £120 on my Autumn work clothes (note the work clothes justification I needed to add) I am feeling very guilty.
OK we have been saving money up to now but last week was a bad week for spending. We ate lunch out 3 times and I cannot even remember why.
This is a new week and so it’s back to tightening the belt. I took a pack lunch for my one day trip to the office and my own teabags. They do free tea but it’s yuk whereas you can buy PG teabags for 25p each. I am lucky enough to work from home the rest of the week so we can cook up a lunch.
I didn’t even get my latte on my trip home. That’s about a £6 saving today.
Generally we’ve stopped doing big shops at the supermarket and buy a bit every day. We cut our food bills considerably and best of all we are throwing less away as we don’t bulk buy so less fresh veg and fruit is going off.
So what next?? Lets get inventive and if anyone has a good idea let me know.
