    My Journey Starts Today…

    A family of four (1 preschool and 1 primary school age) in the UK need £776.05 a week. This is based on the Minimum Income Standard research.

    This has really got me thinking about my journey and were we are:

    I have always been the one that looked after our money or so I thought I was. It didn’t however stop us taking out a car on finance and to have pointless (or non emergency) items building on a credit card or even buying a larger house just because we could not because we needed it. I have also always been the main earner of the family and with my husband also working it felt like we were good, money was great!

    Now looking back money may have been OK but we were doing nothing great with our money and other than knowing it went on the house and childcare (for A our first child) we didn’t really know what we were doing with it.

    Things started to change when I found we were pregnant with number baby number 2 in 2014. My husband had already applied for University, after years of moving from job to job not really knowing what he wanted he had put in the hard work so he could do what he always wanted and he was going to study French (he is half French and is going in to teaching). So money was going to be tight, after reading many blogs and watching many YouTube videos I came across Dave Ramsey. I bought his book The Total Money Makeover and for me it made so much sense. We started the baby steps and made good head way when I (baby number 2) was born, we have £1000 emergency fund and started clearing debt. I is 4 months old and after trying for so long for her we thought it would take a long time for number 3 but we were so wrong. I am only 4 months postpartum and we are living on maternity wages, student loan and a part-time income but baby number 3 is on the way.

    We have not been doing things by halves as E (baby number 3) is now nearly 10 months old we still have our emergency fund and we have no debt. My husband is starting his final year but I have quit my job (I know I know this sounds insane), the cost of childcare for my 3 would have come to approx £1200 a month by the time I had commuted I was bringing home so little we decided it was better for them to have a mum around being so young. My plan is to take on some part-time evening work or start a small business on Etsy over the next few months.

    Money is going to continue to be tight and I want to learn to live on it, for two reasons. I want my children to not notice or ever feel like they weren’t able to do something because we had no money. Also because when my husband starts teaching and as my children all start school so I can work more I want to do amazing things with our money. I want to save for retirement, pay off the mortgage, travel and enjoy life.

    So this blog is my way of keeping accountability in supporting my family, I am still on my journey and certainly have a lot more to learn in my current position. I  want to share what I am doing and what I am leaning and hopefully I can help that one person that needed a push towards their Journey to a Lifetime…..


    My Sunday Photo

    As part of my journey I would like to be able to take photo and good photo’s. I am currently I am the mum that is never in the photo and also only remembers to take the camera out once the moment has happened. I want this to change so I can give my family beautiful pictures to have with their memories.

    So here is my first Sunday photo, it was taken on what felt like a very autumnal (or freezing) walk.



    Mummy can we go to the park?

    As a mum of three (6 years, 23 months, 10 months), I spend time planning activities for us all to do during the weekend, the school holidays and even during school hours for my youngest two. We don’t spend a fortune as we do have a tight budget, but we do budget £20 a month to enjoy on an activity or a few small ones. We also this year saved for Merlin passes which we used so much over the summer. But ask my children any day of the week what they WANT to do and the always say ‘Mummy can we go to the park?’.


    It’s funny as even when we take a trip to somewhere for example a castle or an aquarium, the first thing my 6 year old will say is ‘Is there a park?’. If you also ask him what was the best part of today he will say ‘THE PARK’.


    I just think it is worth remembering, as it really shows you don’t need money to make your children happy. You don’t need theme parks, aquariums or cinemas to make them happy, don’t get me wrong it will not stop me planning fun and educational trips where I can but I certainly won’t feel guilty if I don’t. As I know I am about to put on my coat and boots and head out the door to watch my children smile come rain or shine.
