Last year, I noticed so many bloggers had signed up to Frugal February. I really liked the idea, but I didn't feel like I 'needed' to save money as I didn't feel I spent that much on beauty products. Over January, I wrote down everything I spent and most of my money (after car insurance, travel etc.) went on beauty. And that was whilst I was trying to cut down! I have vowed to make February my month of real saving, mostly because it's the shortest, but also because there's so many others doing it and I think it will be more of a success doing it as part of a team.
Just to clarify why I'm doing this, here is a photo of some of the things I have purchased in the last month:
I vow, for one month from 1st Feb, to avoid shopping for anything other than essentials.
It's that simple! (Well, not really, it's going to be tough!) If you want more details, and want to sign up yourself, click here. Let me know if you do, moral support is definitely going to be needed!
