It does make sense to put this money towards the mortgage but Japan just seems more fun!
Am I being irresponsible here :)
Mr Sft was paid another £15 for IT work today so that makes £30 so far.
Our ebay status hasn't changed, except I've lost a watcher on one item :(
Has anyone else made a bit on the side today?
Nothing needed from freezer today as Mr Sft is off to have dinner with his parents.
Snacks: 3 biscuits (1 too many), banana, orange and raisins
Free School Lunch: Vegetarian Mince and Dumplings, mashed potatoes and cabbage. Satsuma for dessert.
Supper: Boiled Egg 1 slice of homemade toast, butter on half, homemade mixed fruit jelly on other
5 a day-Banana/Orange/Cabbage/Satsuma/Raisins
A Blessed Life: It would be lovely if you could join the bit on the side challenge! Hope you find some treasures to put on Ebay at the weekend.
Kitchenbunny: I have to say eating 5 of a day means making a conscious effort on my part. Today was not easy! Eating fruit snacks certainly helps.
It's great that you have a fruit bowl at work! We only have biscuits in the staff room which is a shame, still the wonderful lunches more than makes up for it.
Jane and Chris: Thanks for getting the recipe.
Gotthisfar: You are so organised with your 5 a day!
I used to start each morning with water and lemon. Might return to that. Thanks.
Definitely going to put raisins in our porridge tomorrow.
It's great that you get a fruit bowl at work-definitely an incentive to get in earlier.
I would love to hear more about your savings and budget intentions. I find blog support invaluable!
I've signed up to yours by the way.
BeckyBee: Glad you've joined up to the Cash on the Side challenge. Good Luck!
PiecebyPiece: Wow! $35 is an amazing start to the challenge.Orange juice is a great idea for a 5 a day. Thanks.
What a lovely neighbour you have-Rhubard crumble is lovely.
Sandra: Did struggle a bit with my 5 a day today-I think having salad for lunch helps get 3 in.
I don't think Mr Sft would give up processed meat for good. But I will definitely limit him next month. Would rather he ate smaller portions.
Looking forward to seeing your side bar.
Sue: Not sure if it's possible to eat too much veg! I think 9 portions is amazing.
Thanks for joining the Cash on the Side challenge.
Also good luck with eating from freezer and cupboards-we are pretty good at only buying what we need too.
Cheapchick: Mr Sft sounds like a brother of your hubby. He eats anything too!
Wean: Looking forward to reading your stand alone page.
Jo: Yes, definitely going to get some orange juice, such an easy one of my 5 a day. Your family sounds very healthy eating theirs every day. I do worry about Mr Sft not getting enough.
MabelandMaisy: Looking forward to seeing your progress bar up and running.
The Smiths: You must get the prize for your 10 a day eating. It always looks so delicious and your body must love you for it! Freegans have my full support. I couldn't get a hoot whether they have money or not, I just applaud them for not wasting precious food when there are people starving in the world. Good on them.
I actually really struggle seeing people throw food away, it really makes my blood boil. I will always accept food parcels from relations rather than see waste.
Theanne: Thanks for the link! He sounds great!
