August is now upon us… a very exciting month for those of us here in Edinburgh as it’s the month of the Fringe. A lot of locals complain about how busy our beautiful city gets, but personally I absolutely love the buzz and feel so privileged to live here. In case you missed it, here’s how I got on with my July goals. I can’t believe it’s already time to set my monthly goals again – here are my August 2018 goals:


Track all expenditure
My husband and I use an amazing app called Goodbudget to track our expenditure – blog post about this coming soon. I tend to find I am good at entering everything I spend for about three weeks, then the last week goes to pot a bit. As such, I am vowing to tracking everything for the whole of August.


Get back in the gym
I have no excuses… my gym is in my garage! I just can’t find the motivation lately. Time to just do it… once I get back into the rhythm, I know I will love it, it’s just finding that initial ‘push’.


Have two date nights with my husband
Going to to be totally selfish here… last month, my husband and I had a long-awaited date night and it was the most fun ever. As such, my goal is to have two date nights in August. It is the Fringe, after all. Hope I can achieve this one!

Have you set any August 2018 goals? I would love to hear them.

  1. Your goals are really well rounded! I’m going to look into the goodbudget app. For someone who tracks a lot of other areas of my finances, I’m not the best of keeping a note of my spending. It’s all the little things that always go unnoticed but add up quickly! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Emma. Goodbudget has definitely been a game changer for me – really makes me think about how I am spending my money. Definitely going to write a blog post about how I use it soon.

  2. Ah I love the Fringe! Been a few times but not since having my daughter. Hope you manage to have those date nights. Might check out that budgeting app too.

  3. Good luck with all of your goals, you’ll smash them! I love you date night idea! I don’t even have kids yet but working takes up so much time that sometimes my boyfriend and I forget to plan special things to do! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ x You can find my blog here:

    1. Thanks so much. I think once you have kids date nights become so special, we hardly ever went out before the kids came along as we took our freedom for granted a bit πŸ™‚ x

  4. I’m with you on the budget tracking, I do so well updating it every few days (I use EveryDollar website) and then the last 10 days or so of the month its like I completely forget and rush to update it on the last day.
    I’m gradually finding my rhythm with working out, its not quite a habit yet but its no longer a chore!
    Thanks for joining in with the linky!
