April update

I can’t believe it is April already! The first few months of 2017 have certainly been interesting and my plan to reduce debts as well as have a ‘free’ Christmas could have totally gone to pot. Luckily, it is starting to work out again and I can get back to saving, clearing debts and blogging. 

Christmas savings

I am saving well. So far I have:

  • £130 Love2Shop vouchers
  • £120 Asda vouchers
  • £19 Morrisons vouchers 

I also have money saved on my Nectar card and Advantage card but I’m not going to count those at the minute as they are minimal. 

I am really happy with these figures but I definitely need to work on the Morrisons vouchers, last year I had over £70. 

Debts

I’m still paying off my debts. I am currently working on one that started at £269 and it is now down to £160. I’m really happy with this as I am paying it off with money that I make on eBay. All I need to do now is work hard on selling things on eBay as I have become a bit slow about it since my job changed. My target to get it paid by 28th May is still very much on track. 

The plan for April

It’s simple. Get everything on eBay. Make money. Pay debts. And blog!

What a couple of weeks! 

Oh my days. It has been a fortnight and a half! From being ridiculously happy I had paid another chunk of my debt off, to then being told my job no longer exists, to starting a new role (albeit in the same company) it has been a bit of a rollercoaster of emotions!

Work wise – the new job could be amazing, I miss my spreadsheets already but maybe it was the push I needed to do something new. 

Debt wise – I paid off another £47 since my last post. Money made from using TopCashBack and eBay. 

This brings the next debt down to £125 when due on 28th May. I’ve got a nice little countdown app on my phone that shows how long left until my deadline for the next three debts and also how much it was when I started it in January. 

Having a quick peek at it keeps me motivated. The past events page is the best though!

eBay sales were rather rubbish this weekend, it seems suit jackets are quite hard to sell! But onwards and upwards for next week. Even if I only pay off another £5 from my debt I’ll be happy. 

I will be debt free regardless of what life throws at me!!!
