After writing a post on Tuesday about how to make a budget I thought I would do a follow up post on how to stick to your budget. Budgeting is such an effective tool if used correctly and in a way that suits your needs, but sticking to it may be the hard part.   3 …
This post is a how-to on a budget. How to make one and how to work out what will work or not. I’m a massive fan of budgets. I know there’s people out there who don’t have a budget, but I’m definitely not one of them (Is now the time to admit I do a …
Another week has gone! It has been another busy week at work, with a couple of days being rather late. I cannot wait for a break now; everyone is shattered and patience isn’t as good as it was at the start of the year. Our budgeting this week has been good; nothing unexpected has shown …

So, June is over! Well, almost. At the end of every month I’ll do an update on the month and how I managed with the aims I set at the beginning of the month. June has been pretty good for us; we’ve been busy with work for quite a lot of the time and so …
Another week is over – how crazy is it that we’re almost at the end of June?! This week has been really busy work wise, so I’ve been putting in some quite long days. It’ll all be worth it in the long run, but it has meant that I haven’t seen my husband as much …
