 Summary  There was a lot going on this month – we even got engaged!!! Excluding the engagement ring and the £500 spend on US dollars for our Africa trip this month’s underlying spending was very much in line with our monthly averages. An annual insurance premium increased our usual housing spend slightly but we were broadly in line with our expected totals.  We […] The post Monthly Spending – July 2019 appeared first on A Way to Less. ...

Having just completed my 25th blood donation, I wanted to write a brief article about my experiences so far.   Giving blood is one of the most self-less acts you can do, giving the chance of survival to those in critical condition, or furthering research into life-saving treatments. It’s something I will continue to do for as long […] The post Blood Donation appeared first on A Way to Less. ...

Unpopular Opinion This is the latest in the series of SavingNinja‘s Thought Experiment posts.
