DH already left this morning for work. Besides his forklift job for G James he also occassionally ties up ships in the Brisbane River so this morning he has left to do a ship at 10am then off to G James to start at 2pm. Yes that is a big gap in time but with the price of petrol $149.9 cents a litre in the Redcliffe Area it is not worth coming back home.
We also have one of Bill's mates living with us at the moment so every little cent helps. This is only temporary for a couple of weeks. So I am the Rose between the thorns in this household. 3 males and 1 female but not a problem. Marks first day here on Sunday had him mowing the lawn. Shock to the system that no nagging was done to get this chore done. The last few times I had been doing it so it was good to have someone else do it.
So we need to pay of about $25000 and save about $30 000. This is very achievable but not sure DH will be able to cope with no takeaways, and giving up smoking. $20 a packet is to dear now. Thank goodness I quit 2 years ago. Anyway his credit card is in a glass of ice in the freezer and I have control of the ATM card and he gets an allowance. ATM he is not happy. I suppose he has been spoilt over the last 25 years.
I will let you know how it works but already have an order from Sarah for some for the grandchildren. I don't know how much I saved today. But 2 litres of washing liquid sets you back about $6-$8, Vick Vapour Rub is about $5-$6 and all purpose bathroom cleaner about $4-$5. Every little bit helps.
Do you have any handmade remedies or recipes that you use. Please let me know.
