Those of you that follow my blog already may already know what I’m saving for but if you don’t…
it’s the Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM… I’m not decided on a colour yet but I want it SO bad!
I have never saved for anything in my entire life but with my maternity leave coming up I decided while I still had a little disposable income to save I would try my best. if I have cash in my purse I HAVE to spend it, if I have money in the bank I HAVE to spend it… this is the curse of the “shopaholic”.. I discovered a solution!
once or twice a week I make a trip to the cash machine and withdraw something. Even if it’s £10.. it’s SOMETHING! I take it home and put it in a box.. this way it’s not available in my account to make online impulse purchases (my biggest spending downfall) and I don’t have it when (if) I’m Im out shopping to spend.
So far I have to say I’m pretty appauled at the money I am taking out and not even missing.. I never have like a ton of cash available to spend so it’s showing me how much I spend on crap without even knowing it.
It could be £5 a day on lunch… it could be £30 on a bunch of new makeup I will swatch once and never use again.. either way it’s a lot of money I can’t really account for and for the first time in my life it feels really good to be saving. I know that when I do get that bag it will mean so much more having saved for it myself.. If I had it right now, yes it would be special but I don’t think I’d appreciate it the same way.
So… I want to know all of your saving tips and what YOU are saving for right now!
I have 2 other BIG purchases on my wishlist I am DYING for which if this little savings scheme works out I might go for next, a DSLR camera and an iMac.. (these will have to wait)
What are the things you most desire?
