I stumbled across this site back in July whilst we had a lot of money things going on- in a month's time we were going on a holiday I had wanted to go on for years and all of these other money things kept on popping up. (Ps it was to Fiji and was just as awesome as I had hoped, will have many wonderful memories for years to come) And so I accidentally found this site and fell in love with it, the various articles and loved the blogs, because it's refreshing to see people speak openly about their financial situation with the aim for improvement, and achieving as much as possible. A lot of the time money is one of those things- nobody talks about it but everybody is doing something about it!
I can think of so many things I want to do financially and this site is great because I believe it is a like-minded environment. I believe saving is good as also is spending less.
I knew I wanted to join the blog and thought just before the new year is a perfect time.
At the moment we are currently on one steady income and one unsteady income, as my husband broke his wrist in mid-October and has been off work since then. (I work in an accounting firm full-time while he is a self-employed carpenter) We have income protection insurance so have been getting some money (one month's pay to last us until mid-January) so the focus has been on stretching our money as much as we can, so this site has been very helpful.
As it gets closer to the New Year some goals will be planned.
Looking forward to sharing this blogging adventure will you all!
