We’ve nearly made it – today is the final day of our current Tenner Week budgeting challenge. How are you doing so far? Think you’re going to make it right through to the end of the seven days? Today is handy if you’ve almost run out of cash, because we’re having a zero spend day.
That’s right, we’re going to try to get through the whole day without spending anything out of our personal £10 budgets. This might be easier on a Sunday, as you can often arrange your day exactly as you’d like.
Here are a few things you could try:
- Have a home spa day
- Have a box set marathon of your favourite movies or shows
- Curl up with a book
- Do a home blitz: cleaning, DIY, gardening, laundry
- Get creative with art or craft material you already own
- Do some free fitness activities
- Picnic in the park
What I’m up to
Having been just a bit busy recently, Golightly Gardens is in need of a little domestic ‘bliss’. I’ll be doing a harvest of fruit and vegetables, turning over the plot, and sowing up some winter greens and salads. Here’s hoping the weather holds long enough to get all that done.
Money spent yesterday: 50p on milk, and £4.50 on a really nice coffee and a fairy cake with passion fruit icing. It was delicious, that cake. Is it just me or do things taste better when you prioritise your spending? We also cashed in an M&S voucher for some nice food.
Total spent so far this week: £8.50. Fingers crossed that this is the total spent for my entire Tenner Week, as I’m planning on having a zero spend day today.
