A bad day for the budget!

I have been doing really well since I set my new spending restrictions and even managed a whole day yesterday without spending a penny. In fact, I managed to make a bit of cash selling a few items of my clothing. For the past few months I have been selling (and buying) bits an pieces of mine clothes and things the twins have outgrown on some selling pages on Facebook. I have found that these are really friendly and much better than eBay. They are brilliant especially for the twins as they outgrow their clothes so fast, well, maybe not George! But I have sold some things and in return been able to buy them some 'preloved' bits. The ladies in these groups buy and sell 'nicer' brands of clothing on the whole and they are all practically, if not, new. Perfect for growing kids at play parks and soft play places where they will only get dirty anyway. 

Today didn't seem to go so well however. I have been pondering over a lovely dress for Matilda for the past few days and after selling some yoga leggings on eBay for the same price of the dress and having some credit I decided to treat us both. So, I suppose, I've not really spent anything there? I have picked up a few items for some up coming birthdays and spent a tiny bit on some underwear (surely this is an essential?) and a much needed iPad case as there may have been a small incident yesterday where I could have done with one! Aah now I think about it there was a cardigan in Primark too, only £6 and I need it to go with the skirt I want to wear for my sisters 30th birthday...

I decided on easy today as I couldn't be bothered to think too much! I went for the Boden skinnies, a much, much loved green H&M cardigan which I really fear is coming to the end if it's life but I love it so much I can't bare for it to go! It is looking a little tatty though. Underneath I wore a lace top from New Look and a beaded necklace that I forget where it is from.
