    Cos its been snowing and i havent worked this week and if it stays like this i wont be working next week either. :( :|

    So what ive done is re arrange all my round so i work less days and my work is more compact :) this will mean i only got to work 7 days every 28 days instead of 10 days. Will save me a lot of fuel aswell :) I believe it will save me £60.00 per fuel every month :D :)

    I will have to work the week after the next then i will have to miss another week to do the other cleans... cos i got 2x weekly customers so am 1 week working then the next week ill be off then on and off :)

    I will be really tight on money for the next few weeks... but it will surely pay off :) and make life easier for me aswell as saving costs in the long term run.

    I think any1 who has a round that is all over the place like i did should do the same as me if u can... now is the best time cos in the summer u will be to busy ! so make the most of the snow in some way :p

    Theirs loads of ways to make your life easier by just adjusting your round the way u want it :)

    Ive saved myself working 3 days.... in them 3 days i could door knock or drop flyers instead and gain a bit of work instead of working in that time

    Good in the longterm run :)

    So what do u all reckon :p :)

    I think I spend about 60 or 70 pound per month on fuel. I have found that as time goes by,your round condenses and your mileage goes down. When you are first starting out you find yourself travelling all over the place. Its lovely to see it develop.
