Work Wear Worries and Summer Saving

By Bethtinkerbell @TinksLostGirls

I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve found that since I’ve started working in a job without a uniform I end up wearing the same things I wear out of work but with black pants instead of jeans. I start not wanting to wear my clothes because I’ve worn them too much and done everything I can to make them a little different, each time I’ve worn them. I always end up wearing black pants because I’m worried about pushing the boundaries of office wear because they’ve started really stressing the point that it is important that we’re dressed smartly because more and more clients are coming to visit us in the office. I love wearing a dress but now I’m a bit conscious that my maxi dresses may be too casual and that my other dresses may be too short.

This is what I wore to work today, it’s nothing too exciting and I don’t particularly enjoy wearing it. I think I have that problem with a lot of my clothes because I’ve worn them so often.
Also I had a play around with the self timer on my camera and I just about managed pictures which are okay (it's just me that looks ridiculous), so you may have to get used to seeing my room in the background. 

I spent £65 on new clothes the other week and I feel as though I’ve nothing to show for it, I got a jacket, two tops, a jumper and a dress. I did get some jeans but I’m taking them back at the weekend. I think one of my biggest problems is I don’t like to spend a lot of money on clothes, even though I will get a lot of wear out of them. I spend pretty much every penny of my wage and yet I usually have nothing to show for it, well I have nothing to show for my ‘spending’ money.
At the moment I’m supposed to start saving because I’m looking to move out, I need a new car and I’m planning a weekend away with the girl at summer along with everything else we’ll get up to when she’s home. I’m thinking I might have to give my mom my debit card to stop me spending and I’ll let her give it back to me when I need to fill my car with petrol, that way if I am tempted to buy anything I won’t have the means to do so. I have £15 in my purse at the moment and I’ll have to make that last me as long as possible, the end of this week if I’m lucky. Thinking about it now I could save quite a lot of money over a month if I only bought petrol and didn’t have any ‘spending’ money, I don’t exactly need it because I take lunch to work but I won’t be able to get any new clothes so I might need to become inventive.
I should probably send off for a tax rebate too, I like to think of that as them saving my money up for me, it’ll definitely come in useful when it’s time to renew my car insurance.
If anyone has any tips for saving money please let me know because I desperately need them.
