I Can’t Believe It’s March Already!

March Already

It seems like only a few days ago I was writing a January update post… where the heck did February go?

February was an EXPENSIVE month for me. Within a four week period, I have to contend with the following –

  • Mum’s Birthday
  • Valentines Day
  • Mrs Scot’s Birthday
  • Mother-in-laws Birthday
  • Car Insurance Renewal
  • Paying for Summer 2013 Holiday

I don’t think it will come as a surprise after reading the above list that we didn’t manage to save much. I still managed to invest all the income from SavvyScot in Stocks and Funds towards my goal of generating a Passive Income from Investing. If you are interested in knowing more, then you will have to sign-up to the newsletter by entering your email address to the right —->. Our portfolio has an average gain of around 15% over the last 5 months which I am delighted with! How’s yours performing?


Tough Mudder in Training!

The health and fitness regime is going very well. I continue to train 5 times per week and am starting to notice some serious results. With only 9 weeks until Mexico and about 13 until Tough Mudder, I need to keep this up. I intend to sustain the fitness all through the summer for the London JP Morgan fun run and then my second Tough Mudder in October. Maybe that’s easier said than done… It is going to take some serious discipline to put in a gym session every morning in Mexico!


Traveling All Over the World

Aside from writing this blog, I have a pretty demanding full-time job. March will involve traveling to Norway, Latvia and Moscow. April will involve a week in Houston and then of course Mexico in May. The eBook that I have been involved in with a bunch of other PF bloggers will also shortly be released. Maybe this will make me a millionaire and I can become a permanent vegabond?


Giveaway Results

For those of you who entered the £300 giveaway this month, you will be eager to hear the results. A Massive Congratulations to Melanie Jane Stirling who was chosen at random via Rafflecopter. Enjoy your prize.


And a New Giveaway

As one giveaway ends, a new giveaway begins! One of the things that I love about giveaways that have a defined prize (instead of cash) is that you have the opportunity to win something that you would likely normally never buy. Like, for example – a Canon Rebel T4i Digital SLR camera. One of my friends owns one of these bad boys and they retail at over $1000!! The prize also includes up to $50 towards shipping – so my fellow friends on this side of the pond can also enter.

What better way to start documenting the year (or starting a new hobby) than with a brand new camera?

  1. You can swap the gym for swimming sessions in Mexico! With all the cool things you have planned I am sure you’ll come back in great shape. Most exiting thing of March: moving to the new room, should be ready soon!

  2. You and me too mate, millionaire sounds good to me. Our month sucked big time as you will see if you read my budget and networth updates. It seemed as if everything happened in Feb for us. Ah well, have fun in March in your travels and keep up the good work at the gym mate, it’s worth it ! Cheers

    Ouch! That’s a lot of birthdays in such a short time. I can’t wait to read your e-letter. I really enjoy reading behind the scents of Mr. Savvy himself.
    We’ve paid off one credit card this month and only have one remaining. It’s the biggest, but we hope to pay down at least 1/3 in March. Have a great rest of your weekend.

  4. Well, hello travel! 😀 Just don’t forget to post what you’re up to when you go and travel…

  5. You get to travel to some awesome places for work!

  6. Dude! The busy didn’t end with February, did it? You may have to edit your article….my birthday was in February, also. I know. Honest oversight, I’m sure. Might want to list is just above your Mum’s or Mother-in-law….

  7. Jason @ frugal habits says:

    I use to travel like that at my last job. It was loads of fun, but also tiring. Glad to hear you enjoy it and best of luck in your new ebook.

  8. Wow, 15% is not too shabby! I do have to admit that I am just a BIT of jealous of your travelling. I’ve always wanted to go to Russia and spend a few weeks there. My wife says I am nuts, but what can I say…my undergrad was in History. Someday I’ll get here there. 🙂

  9. Those are some great returns on your portfolio. I have never done a tough mudder but hear they’re a blast, good luck on the training up until then. Sounds like I need your full time job. I’d love to travel to those places.

  10. Haha…love the idea of becoming a permanent vagabond 🙂

    Happy to be co-hosting with you again!
