2010 - the year of living thriftily

The very last day of 2009 - and Mr Fig's 41st Birthday!
(He has just informed me he would rather be known as Mr Juicy...)
It has been another strange old year, but it has all ended quite well and left me feeling quite positive about the next 12 months.
One thing I am very possitive about is how much more thrifty I am going to have to be - money has never been so tight as it is now, and with the Figlett hopefully setting of for University in September, I am going to have to do some serious figure crunching!
My intention is to blog my thriftyness as well as my craftiness (hand in hand really!) but as with all resolutions we will just have to see how long it lasts.
Today I am going to be visiting Martin Lewis's web site and doing what I have put off for too long now - the financial breakdown, and I can tell you now the outgoings will be higher than the incomings.
Anyway - to anyone reading have a HAPPY NEW YEAR - and for Mr Juicy - HAPPY BIRTHDAY xxx



I could have written the same blog - same intentions, mind you I think a lot of people are feeling the pinch.
I've visited martin Lewis - re-jigged my house insurance - saved a fortune! And I have set up a direct debit to save just £20 a month - its a start.
I too thought I would blog a thrifty thing a week, and hoped other bloggers would join in - sharing ideas and whatnot. Be good if we can keep it up.
Good luck with the number crunching!
