It is certainly feels autumnal around here of late, chilly weather and unfortunately lots of rain. Thats the only problem with autumn/winter here in the UK, rain in abundance…sheesh.. !
But with rainy days come duvet days and hot chocolates and tights and wooly cardigans 🙂 that i am most definitely on-board with.
When each new season begins it gets me thinking about what i would like to do in the coming months, what plans i want to lay down and where i would like this season to lead. I don’t know, maybe its the rainy days making me a little introspective, but its good. in a few months i will be 29!! (uhmagod)
So it got me thinking, with my little boy starting school, i feel like i physically miss him each day. I really want to give him a wonderful treat. Hubs and i talked about it and thought how wonderful it would be to take him to Disneyland. The thought of seeing his little face when he sees Buzz Lightyear and Mickey Mouse makes me want to save every penny i have to take him to that magical place. Its not something we really can afford in our normal budget but here’s my plan..
a. Shop Less… this needs to be for reals… i shop waaay to much and need very little in the clothing department.
b. Ebay..all clothes that no longer fit/don’t get worn. I may even do a blog sale again if anyone’s interested, all money can then go in to our Disney fund
c.Sell Games/Cds/DVDS/Computers/ Hubs has SO many that he no longer use, hes a major techie geek so we have lots of old pc’s and laptops etc that arent needed and we dont use, also all our cd’s/dvd’s are on hardrives or digitally these days, we dont need so many of them.
This is a seriously great way to make some extra £££.
d. Sell a kidney.. ummm this may be a last resort… we’ll see, haha
Do you have any great money making ideas or saving ideas for a very special fund?
I seriously need to work on the whole shop less thing, i bought this dress last week in Matalan. Its like the perfect transitional dress, and i can see me wearing it with tights and chunky cardigans through winter, but now i was channelling this look. I am loving the colours, the burgandy is such a great colour and paisley is one of my favourite prints, i had been looking for a dress like this for months! Pleased as punch with it. But still..no more shopping rachel!!!
Have you ever gone on a no spend?
