    Chanie and Missile, I only have about 20 handbags and I believe about 25 pairs of shoes, 1 pair of trainers and 3 pairs of boots, so I have never got too crazy when it comes to either. I am trying to make sure that I wear as many of the shoes and use as many of the handbags as possible now when I am going out.

    I bought 3 X Dove Derma Spa Vitality Body Lotion 200ml (Boots now £3.29 each) for £5.90 including P & P costs from eBay which saved me £3.97 compared to buying them in Boots

    1 hopper bus journey 75p (10th June)

    Wayne bought me a bottle of water at Karaoke which saved me £1.50

    Wayne gave me a lift home in his car which saved me the 75p bus fare I would have paid

    I had a free ticket to the Poetry Workshop at The Queen's Gallery which saved me £12 :T

    Sugar you have more bags and shoes than I do. Like you, I try and use as much of my stuff as possible and now that I have a nicely organised wardrobe, I can see everything I have, which makes it so much easier.
