Diary of a Spendaholic 14

2.12.12

Saturday
Primark - £17.50
Lush - £11.25
Paperchase - £5.40
Boots - £6.74
Topshop - £13
For once I didn't wake up yesterday knowing it was payday.  I normally go to sleep the night before feeling excited about the promise of being able to make new purchases, but it didn't actually hit me until I was driving home from work yesterday.  This is a big change!
Ed and I went shopping today.  Mainly for him, but I did have my eye on a few bits I wanted to try out IRL.  I tried on the River Island tapestry blazer that looks so good on other bloggers, but it just didn't look right on me.  Also, I don't think people in my area are quite ready for it yet, I imagine it'll be very much a misunderstood purchase.  Besides that, I bought a few little presents, including some for my blogger Secret Santa (more on that tomorrow), some Lush shampoo, a Nivea lip butter and some cotton wool pads.  My only impulse buy was a lip crayon from Topshop, which came to the grand total of £7.  My self restraint is still going strong...this is a payday splurge total to be proud of! 

Sunday
Planet Rock - £18.74
Like you have to ask....this purchase clearly isn't for me.  A present for Dad using money already in my PayPal account.  Which, for the record, totally isn't real money.

Total for the week: £72.63  My Christmas shopping is nearly done, and I'm going to try my best to be a proper grown up and keep up the whole being frugal routine.  I'm debating getting another cat, and previous vets bills have scared me so I'll definitely be trying to keep up some savings!

  2. This is SUCH a good idea. I wish I had even done this from the start of December too see how much I'm spending at Christmas. Will 100% be doing this from now on but would probably be ashamed to show anyone as I am quite careless with money, even though we are trying to save and pay a mortgage!

    Agh life! haha

    Love the paypal comment too! So true!
