A wee change of plans ...

Now I know I'm not meant to be buying any clothing this year ...


... a friend of mine has been raving about a clothing store at a local market - beautiful pieces for $3 or so.


Tomorrow I'm going shopping!! And if I DO buy anything I'll put the equal amount of clothing up for auction on Trade Me.

That's not cheating is it??

A Whole Week!!

Well it's been a whole week without shopping.

And I'm not going to lie, it's been hard.

Walking through Malls and arcades and down Queen Street, with SALE signs shouting at me to come in and try on clothing at a reduced price. Racks of clothing with "$20 or less" signs waving at me to run my hand over them.

But I'm pleased and proud to say that I resisted all that temptation. And it's already showing on my bank account!! The way I'm going I may even be able to pay off a bit of my credit card debt. I only have a little, but I hate having any.

What did I buy this week (apart from food)? Pink sheets. Candy floss pink. They are hilarious. I think I hate them. But I think I may come to love them.
