Aims For March

It's a new month once again! I'm not quite sure how popular these posts actually are, so do let me know, as I don't want to do them if no one likes them. February seemed to drag on for me - I was actually just counting down the days to March (mostly because of pay day!).

Looking back at my aims for February, I did a lot better this month.

Complete Frugal February
I did it! I'm not going to lie I hated every second of it, and there seemed to be a sale in every shop. I'm happy as I spent just under £200 less than I did in January so that's a pretty good saving right? It also helped that I took my own lunch to work every day (minus one cheeky Mcdonalds visit), which was so boring, but again I saved money.

Take more photos
I just don't seem to have time to take photos! As much as I want to, I forget my camera when I'm out, and I end up just not taking any photos. The only times I did remember, I looked rougher than rough so didn't bother.

Relax more
I think I relaxed a bit too much, and to be honest, I didn't like it! I got too lazy and ended up falling behind on uni work, and I didn't get anything done. It has taught me that I need to relax, but I might just stick to one evening a week or something. I need routines and productivity! Is that just me?

My aims for March are going to be a lot more positive, and I'm looking forward to it.

Isn't he beautiful? :)

Walk the dog
My poor little pet chihuahua is a little bit overweight. He actually used to be really overweight (which is apparantly really common in small dogs due to owners not realising sizes - did you know that feeding a chihuahua one sausage is like eating more than 20 yourself?). This month I plan to walk him a lot more - at least 3 times a week depending on work hours. This will also help with my next aim.

Do more exercise
Last month, after my week off work, I looked in the mirror and was seriously shocked at what I saw. Don't get me wrong, I am not fat, and nowhere near, and I would never say I was if I wasn't. But, I was completely shocked at how much my body shape had changed. I didn't like it, and my naturally slim body is slowly heading out the door. My plan is to do a lot more exercise, and possible even head to the gym.

Have a clear out
You know when you open your wardrobe and say 'I have nothing to wear!' although technically you do? Well, I have been saying that for years. I have decided to get rid of all of my clothes (apart from a minimum of like 10 favourites) and start again. I am meant to be saving, so I'm only going to spend what I make from selling my clothes so that way I'm not exactly wasting money, but I get a whole new wardrobe from it. I want to get lots of statement pieces that can be worn all the time and never go out of fashion. I'm not really a fashion junkie to I need ideas for good investments please!

What are your plans for March?



  1. A walk three times a week? Dearie, no offense please, but they need daily walks. At least.
    Cheers and enjoy

  2. I am more than aware that dogs need to be walked daily. My dog is actually my family dog so it is not just me who walks him. As I work and and often away at weekends, I decided to make sure I walk him three times a week ON TOP of everyone else who walks him. Not sure why you felt the need to be anonymous - you could have just asked.

    Thanks for reading my blog. :)


  3. Aha, carry on! :-)
    (I'm anonymous because I prefer not to sign in using Facebook etc.)

  4. I like reading these aim-type posts. I really want to have a frugal month too!

  5. Aww your dog is sooo cute! Give him a cuddle from me xx
