It’s the last day of this Tenner Week challenge – are you managing to get by on a budget of £10? Today’s activity is to commit a random act of kindness.
You don’t need to make any grand gestures today. Unless, of course. you’re a grand gestures kind of person, in which case go right on ahead.
Random acts of kindness can be very small, but they can also make a big difference.
Some ideas to try today:
- Pick up some litter in your neighbourhood
- Pay someone a genuine compliment
- Check in on an elderly neighbour during the cold weather
- Shovel some snow off the pavement
- Sign a petition or write to your MP
- Pledge to support a campaign
- Take a few things to a food bank or charity shop
- Chase after someone who’s left their mobile phone behind
- Drop something off at a lost property box or office
- Hold a door open for someone who’s struggling
Even a smile or a quick hug can have a real effect on someone who’s having a bad day. So…get random!
What’s happening here?
I managed another no-spend day yesterday, although I did make the stupid mistake of doing some window shopping in the tail end of the sales. Better avoid that today because the temptation was almost too much. I’ll read a book instead, always helps to take your mind off things.
As today is the last day, I might treat myself to a coffee or a bar of chocolate to mark the end of a busy Tenner Week. The leftover change can go into a charity box somewhere at the weekend. I also have 1 hour and 25 minutes of screen time left out of my TV Diet ration too, so I think it might be time for some trashy telly later.
Total TV watched so far: 2 hours 35 minutes
Total spent so far: £6.95
How’s your budget looking on the last day of Tenner Week? Can you last the whole seven days without going over budget?
