Well, it looked like summer was well and truly over up here and it was time to dig out the warmer clothes already, but then it turned all sunny again! I don’t know what to wear any more!
Life is more or less back to normal – the family have all gone home so the house is all quiet again.
Work has been busy, despite many people being off for the summer holidays – one week, I’m one of the employees of the month (yay!), the next, they’re asking me to work on the bank holiday (I’ll get the day back in lieu).
I’m sure it’s just a coincidence…?
Anyway, I had several social outings this month so how did that affect my savings in August?
I saved 35.8%, which sees my average savings rate going down to 44.9%. Still a decent savings rate in the scheme of things but not great for the target I’ve set myself!
The above savings includes top ups from £148 matched betting profits (from last month), £18.06 from TopCashback* and £137.42 affiliate income from OddsMonkey (thank you to all who signed up via my links!).
