I will admit I used to buy lots of things for the sake of buying .To say OOo look what i got today isn't it fab then it would be tossed to one side and forgot about.
When we first move to Lincolnshire i got pretty down i loved it but my family wasn't here ,so i would spend and spend .I would go to car boots ,charity shops etc. i would buy things to sell on-line i did sell a lot , but i kept quite a bit . We had a spare room in the first home so i had quite a few boxes with stuff .Most of it was china cup and saucers . bowls , teapots etc.
Now when we was moving up the coast from where we was living my son had a bike accident. It was bad and so the spending got worse .It was the only i coped back then. There was so much stuff eBay selling got slow then 1 day me and my son decided enough was enough and put it as a job lot and sold it really quick. He had bought some of the stuff so we split the money between us.
Then we moved to a bungalow as my daughter has mobility problems and my son was on crutches at the time. So the spending started again ,i could go in pound land and spend £40 in one go i would get back home and think why did i buy this , but i would still continue to do it.This went on for a few years.Then we were told that the landlord wanted the bungalow back for his daughter ( its well know in the village we lived in shes spoilt) so she got what she wanted and we moved in to a house which my daughter has to go up and down the stairs on her bum. So its been a year since we moved here its okay but we would be better in a bungalow for our daughters sake.
So back to spending we need to get it under control.Since the beginning of the year we have payed loads off ,should have a lot payed off buy the end of the year.
So i am gonna go back to my old ways which a hell of a lot of people do.I am gonna do a meal plan again .I used to do a months meal plan ,then i let it slide. i used to have 2 freezers but only have 1 so can't make lots of meals in advance like i did before.So am gonna save for an extra freezer. Plus if i have an extra freezer i can bulk buy.So that will be a plus. We need to save as much as we can ,hubby is on board which is a plus .
