Non shopping shopping


Well I did rubbish with my non shopping January
Here a few things I ended up buying

H & M jumper £14.99



Black and white dress £24.99

I only went into H & M to get some leggings!!!




Then into Primark where I picked these up
                 White blouse reduced to £5.00                                        Patterned top £4.00

I bought the white blouse just for its collar, thought it would look good under jumpers



And no shopping trip is complete for me unless there are at lease one scarf in there


                                                    Reduced to £3.00           £4.00



Then off to boots (as per usual)

Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara £4.99
Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish (Little bo peep) £3.69


That was about it for my little trip
Even though I haven't spent that much
I'm DEFINITELY going to have a "non shopping" February

  1. I think January is too difficult to do a no-shopping month. There are too many amazing bargains! So join me during my Frugal Feb where we can support each other's no-spending for only 28 days...we can do it! I'll have a linky too so people can share how they're getting on - but in the meantime, feel free to add your sale bargains to my sale linky from Saturday! xx

  5. LOL at failing at not spending - I did that last year one month - EPIC FAIL!
    The H&M dress is very similar to the one I bought in the Mango sale - I love it!

  6. Ooh, I could not have passed up those bargains, either! Love both scarves you got! I always fail at shopping bans, too. But they do help me reduce my shopping, so it's better than nothing. Thanks so much for sharing your link with Manic Monday!

  7. Great haul! You did score some really great deals, even though your original intent was to not shop - glass half full? The dress is great - you can do a lot with that piece! Thanks for sharing this with the Manic Monday linkup!

  10. January is totally the wrong month for non-shopping Gail, we need the retail therapy to cheer up - I do anyway - having said that I'm not doing very well in the sales this year! Love the dress and pattered top - look forward to hearing how you go on with Scandaleyes! xx

  12. You NEED mascara and nail polish ... like bread, eggs and milk. And you'd have bought more stuff without the intention, right? Lovely purchases, and you'll wear them all. I'm in love with your "letter" jumper. Very good luck in February. I really can't encourage you to let a little thing like virtuous resolution stand between you and a brilliant bargain, though!
