3 months until the end of the year – madness! I’m not sure about you but I just cannot believe that we are already at the end of September! This means I’ve got just 6 weeks until we go on holiday – and I can’t wait! This is usually our biggest (expense wise) family holiday of the Autumn/Winter seasons and I can’t wait now. We really need some downtime to relax together, chat, eat good food and not have any work to worry about.

Complete 2 random acts of kindness. Achieved. Two deliveries of clothes to people I know were in need, 2 bags of items to the food bank, I gave a few items away to friends/family (mostly new items I had no use for), and I started my HUGE Christmas donation fund. Toy, food and even a little money that’s going to go to local charities and people in need. I’m privileged and I’m really, really grateful for this, but I’ll never forget where I came from and those in need. 

That’s it! Not a bad month after all! I wanted to keep the aims small and achievable this month. This has been really handy, and has motivated me through some of the slightly harder aims!

    Wow you have done so well! That’s amazing that you are doing a donation/collection for Christmas, so many people forget that it’s supposed to be the season of giving, not the season of receiving presents lol! Can’t wait to see what you have planned for October x

      I’m really proud that as my financial position improves I do more and more for my friends, family and those in need. I don’t want to ever become selfish or not appreciate what I have enough to help others x
