Rollercoaster Mum: Money Saving Resolutions (ahem aims)

Money Saving Resolutions (ahem aims)

I have mentioned that I don't really do New Years resolutions, certainly none on diet and exercise, not that I am stick thin or super-fit, I just can't be bothered and would never keep to them in the middle of the dark and dreary winter. I am however always wanting to save money (it's that Scottish ancestry!)

One of my aims (if not exactly a resolution) is to get some of our money stuff organised this year as we have let slip on checking whether we really have the best deals. I am already well on the way to sorting out the gas and electricity, slightly bamboozled by the broadband but I'm getting there. Next stop is home insurance and then the biggie of the mortgage (eeek!) There may be more but these are the important ones for us at the moment. I am hoping by the end of the month I'll have saved our family £10's or even £100's over the coming year.

Let's hope she has plenty of money in by the end of the year!
The other aim is to sort out and tidy the house, get rid of the piles of rubbish (well that's the polite version) as the lovely Mr Rollercoaster will insist on calling them. This is a rather bigger (and more depressing) job so may well take rather longer than a month. However I hope to be spurred on by the thought that I could make some money out of them - second hand sale sites and maybe even a car boot sale if I'm brave enough! The filing and shredding is rather a daunting task but it would be good to reclaim our small office space back to being an office and to be able to get into the wardrobe (even if there is no money to be made from it.)

You never know by next Christmas we may live in a tidy(ish) house and be (slightly) better off - not a bad aim ( I refuse to call it a resolution or it will never happen.) This may even mean I have to go cold turkey on twitter and facebook *shudders at the thought* but it will be worth it in the long run. It will, it will, it will.....
