This is just about how I feel, not being negative about the competition in general or anyone who has chosen to take advantage of the free cash!
We don't shop enough to cut stuff out, there's so much stuff that we just don't do that we couldn't save money on them, like drinking water instead of pop, ditching the daily coffee, taking a packed lunch instead of buying one out etc. If we spend money on something it's because that thing has earned a place in our budget, some of it is money saving, some of it we can pay for because we've done the big money saving things. We buy in a very deliberate way, we don't carry a surplus of food, craft materials, clothes etc, no matter how cheap they are. As I've said before, we don't do lots of the stuff that frugal types do and I'm not going to pretend I do for £30.
I suppose folk might think I'm daft to blow this up out of proportion and turn my back on free cash. But this is about representing myself and if I'm not being honest about what I do here then why write anything at all?
Challenge - find £30 extra for the change jar in the next month.
