If I were really having coffee with you today I would offer you a cake or bun of your choice especially for Bee happy as she requested these on last weeks post and I promised I would bring them along : ).
If I were really having coffee with you today I would tell you that I'm doing well so far with my saving. A month or so ago I invested in this book.
I am loving it. There are some brilliant tips in it, some of which I am pleased to say I am already following. Always a bonus in my eyes, even better to know you are doing something right : )
I'm still not finished reading it yet, I have a little way to go. It is my bedtime reading and sits next to my bed for me to delve into each evening after a long day at work. What I love about it is how easy it is to read, you can read as much or as little as you like in a sitting and it is so easy to pick up from where you left off. It has been written in sections for example, Crafts, Shopping, Food etc. I'm sure I will be referring back to this one in the future, watch this space.
If I were really having coffee with you today I would tell you that I am actually quite enjoying this whole thrifting and saving experience. I would be lying if I told you that it was easy, because it is far from it, old habits are not easy to break, but I am slowly getting there. It has given me the opportunity to have a real good clear out and make a bit of money from things I no longer want or need. I feel I have a clearer space around me and I can appreciate the things I have got and no longer feel the need to impulse buy (whether this feeling will last we will just have to wait and see).
So until next time ladies.
