What are YOU saving for?

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?

    I'd like an iPad but I think I'll get a second hand ebay one when the iPad 2 has been out for a while!

    Next year i'm going to Mexico for my boyfriends sisters wedding, so i'm currently paying that off and saving as much as possible. I have a few cards/loans that'll be paid off soon so I'll be stashing that into a clothing fund. When the sales hit i'm gonna go mad buying clothes 😀

    When my holiday is paid off (hopefully by December) i'm gonna buy a DSLR also, been wanting one for forever, theres just so many to choose from!

    Seeing as i'm obviously obsessed with make-up/skincare, i've been using up boots points, checking out 3 for 2 offers, entering the competitions on Glamour, and limiting myself to one full priced item a month. So I don't feel like i've not bought anything in ages! Haha
