Moneysupermarket budget bucket list

I received an email a little while ago from Moneysupermarket asking me if I wanted to take part in a budget bucket list competition.

This is what they asked me to do:

Write your ‘Bucket List’ blog post. Include details of one ‘budget’ and one more extravagant bucket list item. Tell us what is preventing you from doing them and what it would mean to you to complete each of these items.

So this got me really thinking, to be honest I am still thinking. Not because I can not think of things for my bucket list BUT because I can think of too many! After putting in a lot of thought, this is my entry and these are on the top of my list......

Budget bucket list:


 This is pretty selfish as it is purely for me, but my top of my budget bucket list is to own an Ipad!! This may seem like a really silly thing to you, but to me it is something that I would love! We own no apple products in this house and I would love to find out what all the fuss is about! I see so many people use them on happy family days out, taking photographs, videos, posting to social network sites or emailing to family. Its not just about the photos, its about the apps too! I would love to be able to explore the app store and most of all I would love to be able to play candy crush on something other than my laptop!!! At the moment, buying an Ipad is just not in our budget, we have bills to pay. Not only that, but my children come first, so if I had the choice to save some money for a much wanted Ipad or take my children for a memorable day out I would choose to take my children out for the day. No question.

Extravagant bucket list:


Top of my extravagant bucket list is to visit China, not only China, I would love to do a tour around China AND Japan. I would love to explore the countries, both the cities and the lesser known parts. I would really love to sample some local food, I know it is very different from our take on Chinese/Japanese food and I would love to experience that. Get an insight into local cultures, how people live, what they do in there spare time. See the great wall of china, the terracotta army, learn about the history of the countries. Most importantly I would love to take the children to the Tokyo Disneyland! Being Disney obsessed I could not go to Tokyo Disneyland! Sadly this is something that will not happen for a very long time. By the time we manage to save for such an awesome trip the children will probably be in there 30's at least!! It has always be a dream of mine, and one day I really do hope it will be something that I can tick off of my bucket list. But until that time I will just have to dream!!!
