Every December, as the old year comes to an end, we start thinking about what we want to happen in the new one: “I’m going to lose weight”, “I’m going to eat more healthily”, “I’m going to exercise”, “I’m going to stop smoking”…. the list goes on. It is easy to see why: the new year brings a brand new slate, we can put our past mishaps behind us and start again on the first day of the first month. It is neat, clear cut, simple.
However, in spite of all our good intentions, our new resolutions rarely make it to February. So I am only making two: I am going to save money and I am going to use this blog to keep track of my progress.
A friend of mine mentioned a challenge she had seen online: £2015 in…(you guessed it) 2015. It is probably not very original but it is still quite motivating. Of course, saving over £2000 out of my minuscule salary is out of the question as it would take at least three months to earn that so I have to find other ways.
