Another no spend day
Since Christmas my spending has been reduced but I haven't recorded it. I am going to from now on. I am determined to think about what I'm spending and why. I know I can reduce our grocery shopping and as we have quite a lot of food in the fridge, freezer and cupboards, I'm determined only to buy items such as bread, fruit and veg for a while. Buying more food in Aldi will also keep the grocery shopping bill down.
However I do know my spending on sewing will continue as I have two courses booked and I also need to look carefully at the lighting in my sewing room. Sewing is my passion and I feel justified in spending on this but will still need to ask myself if the item/expenditure is really needed. One area I can cut down is on fabric. I have lots and am determined to use what I have rather than buy new.
The decluttering is continuing and I'm quite pleased with how it's going. I have got better at getting rid of items but it's an ongoing project that will take possibly another couple of years. What I must be careful of is replacing the clutter I'm getting rid of
