As a single parent, working full time plus homeschooling two children during this lovely pandemic, I used money as a way to bring happiness. Temporarily this worked but brought debt! By the end of November 2020, I had zero spare credit and was overdrawn a scary amount. I was at risk of redundancy for the second time that year.
In late December I started practicing gratitude, manifesting, and doing meditation. My focus was to clear my debts and to save for a deposit for a permanent space to call home for the children and I.
First I logged on finally, to do 2 years of tax returns. Only to find out I had a rebate from 3 years ago waiting for me to confirm how to receive it! Plus rebates from the 2 years I submitted and boom! That was £1500! I then had a letter from the bank. They felt they had offered poor customer service and paid me £50. Next, a credit reference agency offered me £50, apologizing for an error on their part. Then a dentist said there was a credit on my account, another £50!
I was on a mission! I started to see my debts getting less and less. Then I did some smart switching of bills which saved me £350 over a year. Then doing credit card balance transfers saved me £1500 over a year in interest.
Then I got promoted!
I can hardly wait to see what else will come my way for 2021!
Keep the faith people!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
