Progress Report: July 2016

  Welcome, to another financial progress report. Here I document my successes and failures in all things side hustle and saving money. I share these experiences so others can learn from my successes and failures. I do this as part of a pay it forward as I’ve learned so much from other bloggers who also share their financial stories to help readers make better, more informed decisions. July has been a chaotic month. We sold our house, bought a new house and then the sale of our house fell through. Since then we’ve decided we’re going to stay where we… View Post

Why We Don’t Have A TV Licence

  When people walk into our living room they’re always shocked. “Where’s your TV?” they gasp. “We don’t have a TV licence” is often one of our first responses. The pure shock horror on some people’s face (our parents included) is amazing. But seriously, how often do you find yourself saying “there’s nothing on” or “TV is poor tonight”… We found that if we had a TV in the living room connected to digital broadcasting then we’d sit and watch crap (for lack of a better word) without doing something productive and / or life enhancing. Then before you know… View Post

2016 Goals – Second Quarter Progress Report

  In January 2016 I set myself, like many others eight goals I wanted to achieve for the year. We all start every year with so many great plans, things we’d like to achieve, and then that thing happens… that thing called life. Three months into the year I decided to review my progress on my 2016 goals. I reduced my eight goals to seven, and was managing to achieve only two of the goals I’d set. It’s now three months later, and I’m back with my seven goals to get a better understanding of my progress now we’re exactly… View Post
