    Mmm get a mate round and buy 2 pizzas and some garlic bread and ask her to bring wine. Have a lovely girly lunch in and then GET ON WITH SORTING THE WARDROBE! I did it for my sis on my last day in Oz. I was staying with her and we'd run out of cash so we did this and it was amazing. She had so much carp and she had to keep running to the charity shop with bags. She was left with a smart and a casual wardrobe all neat and tidy, and I gave her homework (bits to buy). It's such a good feeling when it's all sorted. BTW in an ideal world wardrobe clearouts and styling would be my full time job!

  • £5 a weekend is about my budget at the moment after writing off my car in Dec... Definately endorse all of the ideas above. Often go for a really long country walk at the wkend and then stop at a little pub and have a pint and read the paper. feels very rich!

    Hi guys,

    Thanks v much for all your replies and ideas!

    So, we're now heading into a new weekend and this weekend I'm aiming for a completely NO SPEND one.

    Needless to say, last weekend I didn't get round to the wardrobe clearout, but Souk08's post has inspired me!! I know it'll be great when the place is all nice and tidy and I know exactly what I've got in there!

    Happy weekends!

    Debt-free and Proud!
    I don`t go out at weekends as i dont work (SAHM) and never have any money.
    I normal declutter, do any diy jobs around the place, go to the park with the kiddies, feed the ducks, wash the car, visit friends/family, cook.

    Tomorrow i`m cleaning windows and doing side curtains whilst listening to my favourite album full blast :)
    Washing all the bedding and then making fairycakes ready for Sunday :)

    Sunday lie in, then off to parents for dinner :)

    Unless you're incredibly slapdash about your photos and descriptions, it takes ages to list things on ebay.

    And taking your time over it can seriously increase the amount you get - I reckon you get 50% more on an item that has a good quality photo and well-written description.
