Frugal February

As it's the first of a new month today, all my bills have gone out of my account. What's left made me cry. The knock on effect of Christmas and the long, long month of January doesn't seem to stop. Which is why February is now Frugal February.

The fabulous Gemma from Big Girls Browse came up with the idea to avoid all unnecessary spending during February. As she quite rightly points out, we're all guilty of buying those little things to make us feel better - a new lipstick, a magazine, a coffee on the way to work - but those little things add up. And we're also all guilty of having clothes that we never or hardly wear yet still buy more.

So, why not join in? Say no to all the unnecessary spending! Think about what you're going to do with the money you save! Allow yourself to indulge in a bit of smugness at your willpower!

You can read all the rules (not that they're very strict!) and see who else is taking part here

Glad to see someone else taking part in Frugal Feb! I'm quite excited about it now, but we'll see how long that lasts...

Great idea. I'm sure I can hold out for 28 days!
