100 day spending ban!!!

Most of you know I have a little tiny shopping problem. OK it may be more as I was asked the other day what I do for exercise and I said shopping...  Apparently it is not officially classed as exercise, who knew!!

Whilst on twitter the other night I was reading someones blog and they mentioned they were doing this 100 day shopping ban and I thought that maybe we (including Gary of course) should give it a go...  Now I know that some family members will find this hilarious but this is serious people!!!

Here's whats allowed and not allowed:

Clothes, Shoes or Accessories (yes that includes bags!!)
Toys for a little person
Sports stuff
Junk food
Secret Sales (This is a major one for me at the moment...)

Race entries
1 meal out a week
Presents/Cards for birthdays etc

This ban starts today and finishes on the 18th April (Thank goodness in time for Gary to get me a Birthday present!!!) and also in time for our holiday too!!  Hopefully we will have saved lots of spending money :-)

Wish us luck and I will update on how it is going.
