So last month of the Simple Living challenge was about organisation and de cluttering and it worked a treat. Our house was 100% like a new place. This month could be called Frugal February because it’s about tracking your money and saving.
This month is looking at tracking non essential spending and making sure you have an emergency fund set aside. It also encourages you to do things like check all your super is in the one fund, your tax rates are right and you’re claiming everything you’re entitled to from government agencies. Not in a money hungry way but if you’re entitled to some assistance it may just be the couple of extra bucks you need if you need it.
February also calls for some money saving ideas. Cheap entertaining ideas, turning off appliances not in use and not using the drier.
It’s going to be an interesting month and I think I’m going to get a shock with how much I spend on random shit. Stay tuned for more…..
