Today master no spend wanted to go & spend some christmas money . He likes his xbox so bought an xbox game. He also bought a rolling stones sweater with the big red lips on the front!. Town was jam packed with shoppers. I did not want to be there but thought as I was there I would make the most of the trip. Seeing as I am joining Carlas No Spend January http://halfdozendaily.blog.com!. Join if you have not already the more the merrier.
I bought 2 packs of christmas cards reduced from £2.99 down to 99p (very nice ones too). I have a few cards left over this year which I will use for next year.
I was given christmas money & bought a top in Primark it was £5.00 not reduced just its normal price. I like its style & the edging on the top. I will wear it with black trousers or a black skirt. I like the simple style of it. I have not bought an item of clothing for a long time.
While in town I did some banking . I am overdrawn by a bit but will get this down in the next few weeks. I did top my emergency fund up to £290.00 yesterday though. Gives me a nice feeling to know I am trying to make the amount go up & not down!.
I did not spend much at all which was good. I really did have my fill of town & thought "ooh I really do not like all this hustle & bustle". Now I have had a little fix thats it. No Spend January here I come!! ,
Onwards upwards, infinity & beyond!
Are you ready for your No Spend January?. x x x
