Good news! I’ve decided that I want to buy myself a new camera.
Bad news? I’ve found the one I want and I need another £279 to be able to buy it…and all the spare money in our budget for the next few months is already allocated towards mortgage savings…soooo I need to find another way to get the money and what better way to get myself motivated than with a challenge!
I mentioned this on my Instagram stories yesterday and lots of other people said they’d be up for the challenge to so I’ve created the
#FindItFast Savings Challenge
You can be saving up for whatever you want – maybe you need some new winter boots, some more money towards Christmas or are trying to finish off your Starter Emergency Fund. The main aim of the challenge is to find the money FAST.
I’ll be updating this post everyday with ways I’m making my money and sharing updates on my Instagram (I’ve created some Insta story templates and grid post templates for anyone who wants to join in over there too!) I’m hoping I’ll be able to find the money within the next 3 weeks
Ready, Set, GO

The first place I thought to look for some extra money was my Tandem account as I have auto-savings set up on it and it siphons off a little bit of money from my main account every week. It’s literally just a few pounds here and there once a week so I don’t notice it coming out and it’s built up into a nice little chunk over the past two months so thats straight into the camera pot
(Tandem have an offer running for the next few days where you can earn a free £10 Amazon voucher if you join via my link*, set up an account and turn on autosavings. I’ll also earn a free £10 Amazon voucher too!)

I had an email come through from My Money Pocket* today telling me about their latest cashback deals and I realized that I hadn’t checked the other cashback sites I use lately to see if any of my outstanding payments had been made so off I went to have a look and I had £46.80 waiting for me on Quidco* and £10.43 on TopCashBack*!
(If you sign-up to TopCashBack via my Tell-a-friend link* then you’ll earn an extra £5 Amazon e-gift voucher when you earn your first £10 worth of cashback and I’ll earn a bit of affiliate income!)
