52 Week Saving Challenge Update - Week 27

WELL I'M NOT GONNA LIE. I totally didn't pay this any attention last month. Thanks to a dip in how I was feeling, I was more interested in lying down and forgetting about things that weren't my 2DS or my cats. 

This however meant that I had a lot of catching up to do and I had to fling a good bit of money at this to catch myself up. I'm typing this up on Saturday night after having cancelled a trip into IKEA due to feeling a bit pants so IKEA money, meet bank account. I'm scheduling this post for Monday, so that will be me up to week 27. 

Total amount saved since the last update: £217
Total amount saved so far: £595
Total amount to go: £783

In the last update I really didn't feel like I was getting anywhere fast with this but I have to say, at this point I'm glad that I've continued on. I kinda like that I forget about this until it comes to writing about it and actually shifting the money around - it means that I'm not tempted to dip into it for a lil treat yo'self moment.

  1. You're doing great! And it's great that it's working well for you :) I'm sorry you're not feeling well lately, it's no fun feeling down! But everything picks up sooner or later!

    My goals are going so badly, haha! I'm going to have to just re-start on most of them, just act like they're new goals as of the start of July or something ;) Oh well!


    1. I'm starting to feel better thank goodness!

      That's the thing with goals, they can be flexible! If I had stuck to how this savings challenge was set up originally I never woulda made it work for me. x

  2. I think yu are still going great! I would of messed up the first week, haha. Don't focus on little forgets, focus on the main thing that you are saving up something and that's a great thing! :)

    1. Can always count on your to inject a lil positivity into things Leta :) x

  3. You are doing so well Christie! Budgeting is literally one of the hardest things to do because we all have those "screw it, I'm just going to blow it all and get that thing which I do not need and will feel bad about later but will still keep" moments. Keep going girl! XO -Kim

    1. Haha very true! I'm trying to focus on the big picture, the pennies at the end :) xx

  4. I think you're doing really good still! I would've screwed this challenge up by the first month or two. I'm doing different things on how I'll save - like going to a three month long shopping ban. The thing is one way or another, we might screw up but we just have to keep going! I'm claiming that you'll finish this challenge successfully! <3
