The Budget Bucket List Competition with Money Supermarket

First of all, thank you very much to Helen from Beautifully Superfluous for tagging me to do this competition!

The Competition and The Rules

The idea of The Budget Bucket List Competition is to write a blog post about one budget bucket list item ad one extravagant bucket list item. The post should also include what is preventing you from doing them and what it would mean to you to complete each of these items. The post should also three other bloggers you think would also be interested in entering this competition.

To let Money Supermarket know you have entered, you can tag them on Facebook or Twitter (the latter using the hashtag #budgetbucketlist) or email them at competitions@moneysupermarket.com with the subject "Budget Bucket List". For full details click here.

The competition ends on 2nd August 2013 and the winners will be chosen by Money Supermarket's Social Media Executive, Salome.

The Prizes

The first prize is £1,000.00 and four runners up will win £50.00. If more than fifty people enter the competition, the first prize will be doubled to £2,000.00.



I would absolutely love to go to the theatre and see a musical! My other half and I went to see We Will Rock You for our birthdays quite a few years ago and it was so, so good! However as we have now have a mortgage and bills coming out of our ears, this sort of thing is one treat that I have dropped. I have always wanted to see The Lion King; it looks visually stunning.



At first I couldn't decide on which of my extravagant bucket list items to choose, but last week a new one cropped up and I knew instantly this had to be the one. Last week I think I was made the happiest girl alive when my boyfriend of 9 years PROPOSED. Obviously we've been together a long time and we've mentioned the idea of marriage on the odd occasion (more on my side!), but I never expected it to happen at this point in our lives (although I was praying it was before I turned 30!). He ordered the ring 6 months ago and had decided he wanted to ask me to marry him sometime last year, so he kept it all very secret; I really didn't have a clue. We're going to wait a few years to get married so we can get some more money together and enjoy planning it slowly! Obviously a wedding can cost as little or as much as you like and I have no idea what we will look to spend budget wise, but I would definitely class it as extravagant. It would be lovely to have exactly what we want on what is meant to be the happiest day of our lives, but we have to be realistic too and so it's time to be extra frugal from now on!

The three bloggers I tag for The Budget Bucket List Competition are:

1. Laura from A Scottish Lass
2. Alessia from Whispers from Angels
3. Mel from Mirror on the Wall

Have you entered this competition? What sort of things are on your bucket list, either budget or extravagant?
