budgeting Season updates

Snug as a bug

Layers are truly important this time of year. Gloves hats and scarves can turn a thin coat into a cosy walk with coffee in hand of course. Just like we add layer to our wardrobe we also add blankets and candles to our home. Making ot warmer.

In the UK lots of gas and electric companies have closed leaving a fewer larger companies the access to hoik up our energy bills. It has been colder in the evenings, but I don’t like to turn on the heating until I think it’s time to close my bedroom window. I like to sleep with a breeze for the most of the night and because a few times the room has been cold I have started getting out the extra duvets, blankets and pyjamas.

It’s the start of October and I am not ready yet to turn on the the heating. If it gets really cold we may pop on the fire for an hour but until it’s actually cold it will be cashmere socks, long cardigans and Lots of tea and coffee.

There is no point in being wasteful of money or energy when a few little changes can warm you up. When I was a poor assistant manager living in Archway in a very beautiful but poorly insulated house my friend told me to light some candles, just the pillar ones. She said it looked warm so it made her feel warm. Lucky we still have lots left over by trim the wedding.

So when it starts to get colder the candles will be lit, the hot chocolates will be piping hot and my little dog will be snuggled close to me for warmth.

Autumn truly is my favourite time of year even if I have to be a bit more frugal.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.

  1. It’s good to use save electricity. It not only saves our electricity bill but also the environment.
