    Well today I spent £1 on my dinner during a shift at work :/ on one hand I'm disappointed I spent that much but on the other hand I'm so happy I feel so bad about spending £1! It means once again every penny is a prisoner and although 100 prisoners escaped, it's better than 500 prisoners escaping!

    My week so far;

    Sunday - NSD
    Monday - £1

    So that's £1/£14 so far :)
    Thank you competition posters!

    I'm going to be orange this week I think :D

    Decided that my craft room needed a darn good clearout, listed a bunch of stuff on Facebook and it looks like after postage I'll clear £250-£300 :eek:

    That's going to be enough to pay for a weekend away at a craft retreat I thought I wasn't going to be able to afford :D

    I'll update each day as money comes in and postage goes out. First sums will come tomorrow ;)

    Yesterday:

    Returned trainers: +£37.50
    Bought new trainers: -£27.79
    Reheeled shoes: -£7.95

    Remainder stays on credit card - £1.76 :)

    Poundland shopping: £6
    Sales on Facebook: £139.45 :j :j

    Total profit for the day: £133.45 :eek:

    I still have £20 left in my purse, as I put £4 in my Sealed Pot, and will be aiming to keep to this as a cash budget, using the money I've already received from Facebook sales to pay for postage etc. I'm going to be at the Post Office a LOT this week :D
