Similar to last month, I've not really been buying much lately. Sorting through all my possessions has made me reluctant to add anything to the stack and knowing I won't have a job soon has made me hoard all my pennies. Well, I'm still making a reasonable contribution to the restaurant industry in Scotland. but food doesn't count, right?
Last February I bought one thing and this February I bought one thing. Maybe I was in the same mindset last year! I wasn't keen on the style of this dress but I liked the fabric and thought I could alter it to fit my taste better but alas, it wasn't to be. I did have a good go at making it work (the shortened sleeves were a definite improvement) but I just couldn't get the skirt to sit right. It went into the donate bag shortly afterwards.
A grand total of £3 was spent in February 2015 and somehow, I've beaten that this year.
I didn't need another t-shirt. I didn't need another anything wardrobe related, in fact, but I saw this and immediately started picturing it in my summer wardrobe (I do that a lot apparently.) Plus, it's navy, so it automatically goes with half my clothes. This was also the best of the photographs I tried to take of it. As well as Stupid Face Syndrome, I also had a problem with creasing and tucked up sleeves. Sigh... I think I'll use unemployment as a chance to take millions of pictures. Or learn Photoshop properly.
Spending just £1 in February might be my best total yet (besides zero, of course) and I didn't even go nuts on craft supplies, where the other portion of my non-essentials budget is usually spent. Winner!
How did everyone else get on? I'm going to start using a hashtag on social media (#buyersarchive) so I can find everyone who's joining in, so either use that or tag me in your post and I'll give you a retweet/shout out! It was great to see so many people joining in with the series in January. Keep up the good work everyone!
