That is going to be my motto for 2013. We have a lot to do on the barge, which is going to cost a huge amount of money. I am also hoping to take voluntary redundancy in 2014 and cut my hours down to part time working, which means saving up and paying some stuff off. So next year is going to be a seriously frugal one with every penny being saved. Every pound saved will be a win win situation. I have a lot of blogging pals on the same journey for various reasons. You might like to check out one of my great inspirations over at Saving For Travel . SFT and her husband have managed to pay off their entire mortgage and are now saving for their retirement funds and to be able to travel the world. I have joined her sealed pot challenge and am saving up for a trip to Holland to see my blogging pal Val at Watery Ways in Rotterdam.
And the Lose Some bit....well these are a few pounds I definitely want to lose...those around my waistline. I WILL be slim and svelt like by Christmas 2013! I will blog more about the way I intend to do this another time.
Have you set yourselves any challenges for the New Year?
