Our low spend November is even more important now, what with the car troubles. There's enough money in the bank to pay the bills, and logically I know we have enough food to last us quite a while, Betty included. But I kept waking up during the night and panicking.
So today I'm going to do a full freezer and larder inventory. Seeing it all written down should help calm my nerves, which feel shredded right now. It'll give me back a bit of control, hopefully.
Even a tiny bit of control will help, you go girl!ReplyDelete
Don't worry everything will turn out OK. Wake up in the night just go and make a cuppa and get back into bed slowly drink it and drift back off to sleep........ That's what I doReplyDelete
Just keep saying to yourself 'Everything passes' it helps a bit.ReplyDelete
I find inventorising really does help. Knowledge is power.ReplyDelete
I'll go back and read your last post which I must have missed after losing connection.
Know how you feel, our car as cost a fortune in the last few weeks, I need to get a grip on the finances and stop spending. Good luck with it all, yes knowing what you have will help you, I shall be doing the same.ReplyDelete
Doing a stock take will help to calm your nerves. You had mentioned in a post that you were trying to add to your store cupboard, and you are such a good cook, you'll get through this. I understand how stressful it must be for you though.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the comment on my blog, I have hit rock bottom since writing that post with news about my arm.ReplyDelete
And this too shall pass - as the saying goes. You will be fine, I promise you. Just remember to breathe deeply. xxxReplyDelete
All credit to you for taking control when panic hits. The larder and freezer inventory sounds a really good idea.ReplyDelete
