Budget Bucket List

I was recently tagged in a couple of the ‘Budget Bucket List’ posts that are about another great competition run by the lovely folk over at MoneySupermarket. The basic idea is that you choose one budget experience and one super extravagant experience and explain what’s been holding you back so far. One lucky winner wins £1000 towards their bucket list (or £2000 if over 50 people enter!) and four runners up win £50 each. For more details on the competition you can have a peek at their website here. It’s taken me a while to get round to posting this as I just couldn’t decide!


My sewing machine from John Lewis – £49
Something I really want to learn to do at the moment is sew. I have a sewing machine, but I’ve never used it properly and I’ve decided that it’s really about time that I finally take it for a spin. I know how to use it and I can do some basic stitching, but I really need to have a proper go at it and hopefully make something semi decent. I think the only reason I’ve not used it properly yet is lack of materials & skill, but I think if I got myself some pretty fabric and a simple pattern to start out with I could be okay!

For my blowout choice, I’d definitely go for a holiday. It’s a very typical ‘oh if I won this amount of money I’d take my family away’ type choice, but I would absolutely love to be able to treat my whole family to a massive holiday. Some of my best memories as a child are from our holidays, in particular a group of cottages in Yorkshire and our annual Christmas jaunt to Blackpool, but sadly it’s been a few years since we’ve all had a holiday together for various reasons. If I had to choose one place I would have to go for Disney, because I think it offers something for everyone and is the perfect family destination.
So to finish off, I need to tag three other bloggers to take part! I tag: 
What’s on your bucket list?
