I've been busy today redoing our budget. Building up a healthy holiday fund, the birthday account is looking good too, so is Xmas. These little things make our life so much easier. I came well under budget in the grocery department too. I'm on a no-buying spree at the moment, which is hard when we are redecorating. I love buying new paint!!! I have all the ingredients to make my first lot of washing powder. I'm looking forward to that - seeing if it measures up to my expectations.
