This Month Savings

During the month of September, we managed to save £655 towards our goal. So far we are happy with the progress as this is our second month we have managed to save £50 extra on top of our £605 monthly saving goal.

Putting that extra money to our savings goal when we can, helps us to save faster and it will also help us to reach our goal earlier than our projection of 4 years.

Here is what we have saved so far our target is to reach £34 500 in the next 4 years.

Still Reducing Our Grocery Money.

We shared with you here and there how we are reducing our grocery so that we can save money. This month we tried to do a few new things to reduce our grocery even more.

We decided to try shopping our grocery in the reduced section of our grocery shop.

This has certainly reduced our grocery money as most things sold in the reduced section are usually marked down up to 90% of the original price so there were huge saving there.

We will continue shopping in the reduced section of our grocery shop once a week just before we do our weekly big grocery shopping so that we can plan our meals for the week easily.

We are all so learning more ways to cut down on grocery by cooking our own pasta sauces. See our   Homemade Healthy Pasta Sauce Recipe

We will continue cut down on our grocery slowly as well as looking at other areas we can cut in our budget.

Looking forward to sharing you our next month savings update.

Over to you…

How much money did you manage to save in September?
