I think it’s pretty well established that I love shopping! Some might even say I have a bit of an, um, addiction. Probably my credit card would say that. Certainly after Christmas it’s looking a little well-worn, so for February I’m instigating a new plan-of-attack.
It’s called Frugal February.
I’m going to go the whole of February (notice how I’ve picked the shortest month?) without buying anything new. This – I’m sure you understand if you’ve been reading for a while – is A Big Deal.
Like I did with Frockapalooza I’ll be posting every day, and I’ll be trying to focus on budget-friendly labels from discount departments stores and chainstores. I’ll also be doing at least one DIY or Remix a week. That way, if I feel like I want something new, I can have it on as little dosh as possible! My Budget Nazi (Love you, Haz-Mo’s Ma) would be so proud.
No need to remix anything today as it’s a whole new virgin outfit. Even though they’re both a year or so old I’ve never teamed this great lace cardigan with my ruffly pencil skirt before. Now I’m wondering why… somehow they seem to be made for one another!
