- Frankie Magazine ($9ish every 2 months). I am saddest about this!
- Non essential makeup, and by essential I mean foundation, eyebrow powder, blush and mascara. Apart from these few things I won't be buying makeup until I get to London (And I may go a little nuts on it when I do)
- Excessively expensive clothes. I mean I need to wear clothes and looking professional at work will be important, but I promise to only buy sale items from here on in. Also, I won't be buying any new winter clothes this year because they won't be nearly warm enough for a UK winter.
- Fancy artisan sourdough bread. I have a serious addiction to this, but at $6 a week on average thats probably a saving of $200 between now and Christmas.
- DVDs-rental or purchase. Seriously guys, I have too many DVDs. I am already crying about leaving them behind, so there is no need to add to the collection is there? Also, I'm not going to rent any more movies for the rest of the year.
- iTunes music or TV shows- This is a weakness of mine because the couple of bucks for a song or episode never seems like much, but they add up. I wonder if I can disable my account so I can't even be tempted?
- Trips to the movies-this always costs more than I expect and after working at a cinema for ages I still resent paying!
- Home wares- If it isn't in my room right now it is never going to be.
- Take away food- self explanatory really
- Luxury food items- I am not going to live off ramen noodles, but I can cut back on my grocery spending big time
- Books (NOOOOO!)
- Trips to the hair dresser- I need to start retouching my own roots because I won't get about town with grey roots (Yes I am going grey in my 20s)
Have I missed anything? Anyone have some great money saving tips?
