Summer Financial Manifesto 2013

Aha, before I share my summer financial manifesto, I need to let you know how I managed with the Spring goals and aims.....................

  • Declutter in the hope of doing a couple of car boot sales once they start again after Easter - The weather has been terrible, so I am doing the boot sale in the summer!
  • Look for a part time job whilst the boys are in school - I keep looking, it seems to be the Holy Grail! 
  • Check out car insurances as out policies are due for renewal - We did this and remained with our current provider as they were the lest expensive. 
  • Hold a budget friendly birthday party for Maxi who turns eight - We did manage this. 
  • Make not buy cards.  In addition to Maxi's birthday we have mothers day and our wedding anniversary in March.  I have lots of craft things, so me and the boys are going to have a card making session - We have not bought a card all spring.  Will be making fathers day cards too 
  • Arrange to have the boiler serviced - failed with this, so will arrange over the summer 
  • Have a spend free April - only buy what is essential. - Again this didn't happen 

I need to keep spending down to a minimum over the summer as we are going on a family holiday in the Autumn with my brother and family.

  • Take a picnic and flask on all days out 
  • Find out about free activities over the summer
  • Allocate a budget to summer days out
  • Get together a summer bag for the car with kite, swimming things, ball etc in for adhoc days out
  • Make our own ice creams and lollies, we will escape the lure of the ice cream van
  • Do a car boot sale
  • Declutter the garage and sell what I can
  • book a boiler service
  • Make the most of the food we grow in the garden and remember to keep sowing more salad leaves throughout the summer
I would love to know your financial goals for the next three months.
