josephinedoespictures photos downloadI mentioned I've a few projects on for October. The second is a No Spend October, following in the footsteps of @thedaisybee and @the_ft_times who both made admirable efforts in No Spend September.Whilst they posted an outfit each day throughout last month, I know most of my non-essential expenditure isn't in one area but spread across food, accessories, make up, clothing, other 'beauty' stuff, knick-knacks, arts and crafts paraphernalia, books; you name it. I usually don't spend much in one go (with exceptions) but it adds up and I don't have any income to support it.No Spend October isn't so much a choice therefore, as necessity. That said, I know spending is a less than helpful coping mechanism when times are tough, and indeed, times are rather tough just now. As such, I've devised a plan to make me re-appreciate things I already have. I'll be experimenting with themed days of the week, and whilst this is a day or so late, the first is Sunday Funday.As I'd like digitise my kitty pictures, I began by playing with the Sketches software I've had on my iPad for a few years. I've not used it for at least a year, so I'm reacquainting myself with its functionality. The above is one product of that, a watercolourful bubbly pattern. I'd like to make a bubbly fabric pattern and perhaps look into making/printing fabric designs. One day.

wearefaodail photos downloadSo we're in October and over the month of #nospendseptember. Yes we can imagine some of you saying for goodness sake get over yourselves, it was only 1 month you spoiled brats. Yes, there is obviously many more important things in life than clothes. But clothes and styling is something that we love and get genuine joy out of. So we don't feel shallow or guilty about that.Here are some of the things we learned:1. There will be things in your wardrobe you said you'd get loads of wear out of and have only worn once. You do not need a new outfit for going out on Saturday night, there will be an outfit on your wardrobe you will love wearing. 2. There is always a bit more product left at the bottom of the bottle. Mel uses @benefitcosmetics #gimmebrow daily and ran out midway through September. She boiled water and poured a tiny amount into the bottle which loosened the remaining product up and it has still lasted until now. Saved forking out £20 sooner than necessary. 3. We are spoiled to be in a position where it is possible for us to buy new clothes as and when we want them. We already know this, but this was a reminder. We need to be very conscious and grateful for this. 4. Instagram isn't good for your spending habits. Before Insta, you had to be either in a shop, flicking through a mag or online shopping to see something you wanted to buy. Now with so many fashion accounts on Instagram, is it all too easy to see someone wearing something that takes our fancy, swipe up, and be at the checkout stage before you can say "woah I don't need this."5. We buy too many items of poor quality. Doing this really made us think about what is in our wardrobes. Whilst we like fast fashion that is cheap, lasts a couple of washes and then can be binned, both of us have realised that we would rather have a capsule wardrobe of many less items but better quality, fit and versatile than lots of cheap disposable items. 6. Ask yourself the questions, do I need it? Will it make me happy? Does it suit me? Am I buying it just cause it's on sale? ...#nospendseptember

dealingwithdebt photos downloadSeptember was the first time I entered into the #debtfreecommunity and really took a long hard look into my finances and how I could better myself. .And boy did that one month teach me a lot!!!.I learned that it's actually quite easy to stick to a meal plan and a grocery list and not rely on eating out when in a pinch. I learned that I don't need to impulse shop to make myself happy..I learned that I don't make a whole lot more on income than I spend on necessary expenses so it's more important than ever to track every penny and make I sure I know where my money is going.Don't get me wrong, I did make some flubs throughout the month in terms of budgeting, and surprise expenses that I wasn't expecting. I'm chalking September up to a learning lesson and I'm looking forward to October!! #debtfreecommunity #debtfree #debtfreejourney #crushingdebt #budget #nospendmonth #nospendseptember

Today is the most important day of the year for me, because itโ€™s my little ones 3rd birthday (no wonder I woke up at 2:37am all excited๐Ÿ˜‚) Weโ€™ll be out with her all day and tomorrow weโ€™re having a small family party at my mother in laws. Itโ€™s hard to believe that itโ€™s October tomorrow. I didnโ€™t know it a year ago, but it would be the month Iโ€™d start my No Spend Year. Time flies when youโ€™re having fun ๐Ÿ˜I hope youโ€™re all having a fantastic day and weekend!!

thedaisybee photos downloadDay 29 of #nospendseptember and it's my PENULTIMATE #OOTD ...! Dress 2013 ASOSBoots 2013 ClarksOn August 29th I was having a panic rummage around Arket on Regent Street thinking "But THIS is the hot new store! There must be something I can buy!" It did not occur to me that four year old seventies inspired ASOS suits me better than brand new utilitarian scando chic. This feels like a new outfit, even though it's old, and I feel better than a million dollars - more like I found fifty quid down the back of the sofa!

nospendyear photos download24 days left to go: Have you ever thought about how little you would spend if there was no internet? I fondly remember the times when you had to actually go into town to buy something. Obviously back then I was still very much consuming left, right and centre. Nowadays I’m not bothered about online or ‘real life’ shopping, but I definitely think about all the people out there who do a lot of online shopping. Black Friday is coming up in November and although I don’t have the exact numbers I know that it’s one of the biggest online shopping days. What’s the last thing you bought online? Do you think you’d spend less, if there was no online shopping? Or do you actually save money by shopping online? Let’s chat๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

nospendyear photos download25 days left to go: The closer we get to moving, the more I feel like selling my belongings. I don’t have much, but even the little I have I want to, mostly, get rid of. Material things nowadays just don’t really appeal to me anymore. The last time I test packed my luggage for our move I was able to put all of my clothes into one medium sized piece of luggage. Overall I’m aiming to fill that medium sized piece of luggage and one piece of hand luggage. I just don’t need much more. I need a few things to wear, my hair dryer, laptop, you know..the basics. Everything else can be cheaply replaced thanks to places like Ikea. I don’t know how other people do their oversea moving, but that’s how I’ve done it a few times before and it always worked for me. No need to worry about big boxes, furniture, shipping companies and the like. I hope you all have a great day๐Ÿ˜ƒ
