My 'Spending Ban'Sunday, January 17, 2016
I issued a spending ban. But I caved. I doubt anyone will be surprised. I wasn't.
I was in a charity shop, back in November (in my defense I was making a donation), when I tripped and fell into the changing room with some knitwear.
And then I was pondering what to wear over the festive period. You might recall a red dress I picked up at a clothes swap? I wanted to wear it but I needed a shrug or cardigan of some description to wear with it, so this teeny tiny eBay purchase occurred.
And whilst that was going on, this dress happened (Monsoon, £8.50, excellent condition - how could I not?).
And this jacket.
But that's it I promise.
Except for some long sleeve t-shirts to wear under jumpers, but only after I discovered three of mine had holes in them. But that really is it.
Apart from a Next jumper that I bought in lieu of a novelty Christmas jumper. It's super, super soft, and has really long sleeves. It's so cosy and I was starting to feel poorly and, heck, I just wanted it! What's more because I bought it instead of a Christmas Jumper, I can wear it all year round and I've worn it a lot already. So, it's totally justified, right?
Do spending bans ever work?
