We’re half way through the year, how crazy is that! I say it every month but where is the year going?
I found myself talking to a friend the other day and saying that I feel the past 6 months has gone by in a flash and I didn’t feel like I’ve got much done. Later that night I was sitting at the computer sorting though my photo library (it store photos, logos and images for the blog) and realized that actually I’ve achieved a hell of a lot this year! I don’t know what it is about the British mindset that seems to make us down play our achievements but I really need to teach myself to stop doing it.
2019 has really been our year so far and finally getting our money situation sorted has played a huge part in that.
In January this year we finished paying off our debt and it’s meant so much less stress in our lives! We’ve started work on our Baby Step 3 Fully Funded Emergency Fund and have cashflowed the start of our Extreme Garden Makeover, my side hustle businesses have gone from strength to strength and we’re in a position now where we feel like we can start trying for a baby – when you look at it like that the first half of 2019 has been pretty awesome!
So tell me, how’s the first half of your 2019 looked – Have you made a start on bettering your finances? Are you in the middle of your debt snowball? Have you only just found the #debtfreecommunity and wanting to know where to start? Wherever you are on your money journey this months giveaway prizes would be a perfect addition to your money managing toolbox!
The Prize Bundle includes
- A Monthly Budget Planner – You can’t beat a pen and paper budget, especially if you’re just getting to grips with budgeting.
- ‘Envelope’ Wallet System – Cash envelopes are another fab tool for managing money. It allows you to really see where you money is going and think about what you are spending.
- The Automatic Millionaire by David Bach – This is a book I hear mentioned constantly in the debt free community so though it’d be a good one to add in for this months prize bundle.
- A years subscription to YNAB – The team at YNAB have been kind enough to gift a years subscription (worth £65) to the lucky winner. I have used lots of online tools to keep track of our budget but YNAB is by far my favourite. It helps you keep on top of your spending, saving and your debt snowball – you can even track your networth!
