It's SEALED POT SUNDAY WEEK 42. Which means we have A 10 WEEK COUNTDOWN to opening our tins! How exciting!
I am attempting another challenge S.I.O.O.-Stretch it Out October-in a bid to try and raise more cash for my SEALED POT. As you know I am so keen to reach close to £1,000 for my pot (I think I could be close, but then I doubt myself).
All the sealed pot money is going towards the 2020 trip through Africa.
This week's 2020 inspiration picture is ZANZIBAR, found off the coast of Tanzania:
I am not a fan of 'beach holidays' but something tells me that by the time we get to Zanzibar I will be more than grateful for a bit of R 'N' R.
MY SEALED POT WEEK
SAVED MONEY-£21.70-As you know I was aiming for £15 from S.I.O.S. so we were delighted to exceed that total. I'm hoping to save £30 out of our £100 grocery budget in October-all for the Sealed Pot.
SAVED MONEY-£7.60 leftover from my purse went straight into the tin.
SAVED NOT SPENT-I spent my £10 Whittards Gift Voucher yesterday-part of it went on a new tub of Hot Chocolate (my Mum's favourite drink when she visits) so I put a token £2 in the pot. It cost £4 but I wouldn't have spent that much and decided £2 was fair.
Next weekend we are off to Alfriston Youth Hostel.
We paid for our accommodation with cash from Mr Sft's IT job.
We have £8 left towards our Badger's Breakfast.
I am hoping that the weather will be as nice as it is this weekend so we can take a lovely walk down to the Seven Sisters.
10 weeks to go until the sealed pot opening has really focused my mind on saving as much as possible.
HOW WAS YOUR SEALED POT WEEK?
