So it was back down to earth again this month – back to work, back to a mix of sunshine and rain – a great British summer!
I’ve had my sister and nephew staying with me, spent a nice weekend with them, so while they’re visiting friends, I’ve been able to update the blog, do my numbers and also catch up on a bit of blog reading.
My fridge freezer finally arrived and so my kitchen is complete at last! However, I keep inadvertently going back to the old fridge which is now empty – I guess it will have to revert back to being my ‘beer fridge’!
Anyway, how did I do with my savings in July?
I saved 40.3%, which sees my average savings rate going down to 46.2%. A little higher than expected but some costs are on my credit card which won’t be settled til next month.
The above savings was topped up with £64 matched betting profits (from last month), £50 premium bond win – woo hoo! 🙂 and £63.98 affiliate income from OddsMonkey (thanks to all who signed up via my links!).
Shares and Investment Trusts
No new investments, I just topped up existing ones.
