19th & 22nd July 2021

These posts were originally posted on the YNAB forums and MoneySavingForums (a UK money management site), I am moving my journals across to WordPress to have them in chronological order, and because the YNAB forums are closing as of March 2022. I’m not sure how much of other people’s words I’m allowed to copy across from one site to another, so in some sections I may summarise conversations.

19th July 2021

Better news today, thankfully! 

I stocked up on fancy teas, and my silicone novelty tea infusers arrived! Apparently this tea shop does a big annual sale every year in July, so I might add an annual savings goal for next year. I’ll take a look this year, but I’ve got plenty in if I can’t afford it. They bring back a lot of seasonal items apparently and there is one from Christmas I’ve been missing…

Also they have this promotion right now where you find a flip flop in their store and get a free drink. (Everything is beach/summer themed currently) I was WAY overthinking it, checking under tables, behind display items… it was just on a shelf in the window. Hiding in plain sight as part of their window display. 

In response to someone saying the little diver as cute

He isssss! The website pic had him sitting serenely at the bottom of a full glass, which turned out to be untrue (he floats) but he’s still my favourite 


22nd July 2021

So the fancy tea shop had thier annual online sale today… In the last week I’ve bought £57 of tea 😳 oops

But it’s all budgeted for! I may have to go out a little less but I’ll still pay my rent. Aaaaand I’ve learnt to put in a category for next year’s annual sale.
