No idea where this month went – I had one weekend away (cocktails are never a good idea!) and that’s pretty much it. No progress on the kitchen so it’s still only half done, but at least I can cook now so the poor diet from previous months has improved. Hopefully, all will be completed by the end of this month.
So, how much of my net salary did I save this month?
I saved 37.5%. An improvement on last month but not by much. I think this is going to be as good as it gets, especially with the more ‘expensive months’ coming up.
My average for the year has now dropped to 45.4%. I’m not going to reach my target but I think I’ll be happy if I can keep it above 40%.
The above savings includes £200 matched betting profits, £7.50 from TopCashback*, £50 rent received and £93.57 affiliate income from OddsMonkey (thank you to all those who joined via my link – much appreciated!).
Shares and Investment Trusts
Nothing new was purchased, I just topped up existing holdings.
