A New Direction

Don’t let the title fool you into thinking I’ve had some crazy idea of forming a teen boy band sensation to make my millions. Things are not quite that desperate. However, those of you with a rudimentary grasp of mathematics will notice that I am fast approaching the halfway stage of this challenge. The goal […]

Week 25

It’s week 25 and I stand at something of a crossroads. In the words of  Bob Dylan: “The times they are a-changin’… The slow one now, will later be fast”. That’s right, I just started this post by randomly quoting Bob Dylan. Don’t stop reading, I haven’t lost it. I have, however, been assessing my progress thus far, […]

Week 24

In honour of the number 24, and in true Jack Bauer style, I will keep this post short and to the point. No messing, no nonsense. This may be more down to the fact that I have an awful lot of things to get done, but that seems like a less entertaining excuse. With that […]

Week 23

  There wasn’t much time for easing back into things as it was back to the grind this week. There was plenty of catching up to do after my “jet-setting lifestyle” got in the way last week. Whilst it was interesting to see what happened to the income of the project when it was left […]

Week 22

Those who read the update yesterday, for week 21, will already have an idea of what to expect from this post, but for those of you who are just joining this wonderful adventure, or who may have skipped a post, allow me to fill you in. I spent the entirety of week 22 away on […]

Week 21

I’m over a week late with this post, so I best start by way of explanation, as things will be a little confusing if I don’t. This post is for the week of the  22nd-28th July, and so this update should have gone out on Monday 29th. The update for the week just gone will […]

Week 20

I’m out of the teens and into the 20’s. I was recently informed by a pregnant friend that if this project were a pregnancy, it’d be a coconut by now. Must admit, that didn’t make any sense to me either, but it seemed topical given that the royal baby is expected to be popping out any moment […]

The dog walking experiment

Unless you’re entirely new to this blog (welcome!), or have been ignoring my recent posts (shame on you!), then you will likely have heard me mention that my effort to get some work as a Dog Walker has finally paid off. I first had the idea back on the 7th April – I don’t have […]

Week 19

After last week’s incredible roulette haul, it was always likely to be a case of ‘back down to earth with a bump’ this week. Just how hard that bump would be was the question though. In terms of money made, this week has come far below the high standard set last week. However, in long-term […]

Credit where it’s due

The Shoestring Investor has been checking his credit file. With my Stoozing credit card nearing it’s limit, something occurred to me just recently. Something I hadn’t factored into my calculations when I decided to take it out. I was beginning to wonder what impact having a credit card maxed out to the region of just over […]
