    I currently resemble a bag lady. All my clothes now hang off me and I've tried on some lovely clothes this afternoon but we're so skint.

    I've bought a few necessities recently, like jeans, from Sainsburys and got a top yesterday from Asda as I quite like some supermarket clothes, but I just really want so many nice things I saw today including a lovely top in Monsoon for Xmas parties but at £55 I can't bring myself to spend that much on something I'll only wear a few times.

    Im back in my old wardrobe so technically have enough options to make do the next 6 weeks (not really for xmas parties tho) or so but then I get into territory I've not been in for 15 years so will def need new clothes then.

    I've asked for money for Xmas and mt birthday is in april when I hope to be at target.

    I know I'm prob not alone but just wanted to vent and grumble.

    I need to win the lottery!!!

    I hear ya!! I have been treating myself to (too many) lovely going out clothes and shoes. But for everyday I'm stuck with one pair of black trousers, now too big, a couple of pairs of leggings and various vests and cardigans. After weeks of spending..lol I've now curbed it, and apart from essentials I don't intend to splurge until I'm at goal. I love, love shopping now because there is so much choice for me.
