I think this is unfair, and not in keeping with the blog – one hundred pounds, one month. You’re just sellin’ a big pile of stuff to make it easy!
OK, I agree it makes it all too easy.
There’s 2 options to move forward from here, and I’m going to let you guys pick the scenario. Make your vote in the comments before 5pm tomorrow, and that’s the path I’ll follow.
I stop selling stuff, and don’t add at all to my budget, and just scrape by till the end of the month. At the end of the month I breathe a big sigh of relief, and start living life again as normal next month, and I kill the blog.
or Scenario B:
I lose the end of the month deadline. I see how far I can go on the £100 I started with, by seeing how much money I can make on the side, by selling stuff if I feel I can do without. Each time I make it to the end of the month, and get paid from my day job, I pay my rent, my phone, the optician’s and the internet, and I stick the rest in a savings account I can’t get at. It’s sort of like a parallel universe where I only make about £400-450 a month (and that all goes on the bills). Everything else I do (food, drink, holidays, seeing friends) I have to try to get by on my wits. This goes on until I have to give up, either because I’m out of money, or I’m sick of it.
