For the past little while I've been making all these bold claims about wanting/needing some new clothes. I am always wearing the same few things. Other than a few unstructured peeks on the charity shop rails I hadn't done anything about it because I just didn't want to spend the money.
Of course as everyone already knows I didn't need anything new at all. What I needed was to get my paws in the sink and do some handwashing, what I needed was to get the sticky tape out and get the bits of washed tissue off my blue cardigan, what I needed was to get the iron out (yes, I know there will be some non-ironers here, I used to be one myself), what I needed was to get to the bottom of the laundry bag.
So for the cost of some electricity I have more than doubled my wearable winter/spring wardrobe. Surprise surprise - doing things gets things done. I have finished the bottle of laundry liquid, but still have some of the bag of powder left, so I managed to get to the end of the month without buying anything.
I still don't need to go shopping, but I do need to clean the fridge!
