Well, the big highlight this month is that my Future Fund reached £250,000!
Woohoo, I’m a quarter of a million millionaire 🙂 🙂 !
I’d planned on doing a separate post dedicated to celebrating this milestone but decided to relegate it to just a highlight in my usual update because once my house purchase goes through, I’ll be withdrawing a chunk of cash, so in my mind, I’m not really there yet.
And yes, the house purchase business rumbles on – a big post about it once it’s all over. Still so much to do.
I waiver between being really excited/stressed about it and working madly on decluttering etc, to days of complete apathy where I just binge-watch tv or play video games because I can’t face it all.
Fortunately, all that needs doing by me (for solicitor etc) is up to date, it’s the sorting of the house and my/the family’s belongings which is completely doing my head in. But I will get there of course.
Anyway, I’ve finally been successful growing some tomatoes (cherry) – so chuffed with these, which have been great in salads:
So, how did I get on with my savings in August?
I saved just 13.5% of my net salary.
The above includes another £25 Premium Bond win!
Shares and Investment Trusts
