Last month I decided to keep a closer eye on my spending than normal, as we’d had a couple of changes in household finance. Our outgoings have risen due to us getting our act together and giving a decent amount to charity, which I’m very happy about, and me starting to take this whole pension thing seriously, which makes me feel old. And slightly concerned about how on earth anyone can ever afford to retire.
Anyway, that’s enough of that, I’m not even 30 yet! (Just). These are the areas I kept an eye on in February.
No new clothes or shoes or stationery in February
Okay…. So I bought no new shoes or stationery for myself (I did buy some as presents and I regret nothing). Having spent just £7 on one top in January, I didn’t think I’d have a problem staying away from the shops altogether. However. Then I got an email from Tallgirls, which funnily enough is a specialist tall clothing retailer, about their pop up sale. Everything under £20! I mean I couldn’t not go? So I went with my sister and we had a lovely day and bought nearly all the same clothes because we’re basically the same.
I ended up spending £75 which bought me over £150 worth of clothes, which you can see me modelling awkwardly above. I’m awful at having my photo taken so I’m sorry I’m such a weirdo. Anyway, as you can see I bought three dresses, a potato sack like jumper and some jeggings. They were all £20 or under (the second dress from the left was £5!) so in that regard it was pleasing but on the other hand I spend £75 that I maybe shouldn’t have. I’m not sure why I needed three summer dresses when it’s 4 degrees outside. Moving on…
