You may remember that last month I imposed a shopping ban on myself in a bid to save some money and stop buying unnecessary things. I’m pleased to report that I have survived despite getting a new bag. How is that possible I hear you ask?
Well, I got it thanks to the credit from JustFab.co.uk. I don’t know if you are familiar with JustFab.co.uk but it’s an online subscription fashion retailer providing shoes, handbags, jewellery and denim. It offers a personalised fashion experience based on your own preferences.
VIP monthly membership costs £35 but if you’re not ready to make a purchase you can "Skip the Month" by the 5th to avoid a charge.
I discovered JustFab about 2 years ago and really enjoy receiving their monthly picks. Of course I can't afford to spend £35 a month on new shoes or a bag so I keep a note in my diary to remind me to skip the month.
However, 2 or 3 months ago I forgot to do so and was automatically charged £35 for a member credit that could be redeemed towards 1 JustFab item at a later date. At first I couldn't decide what to pick but after some deliberation I settled for this gorgeous blue bag.
So that's a quick story of how I expanded my bag collection. Have you bought anything lately? I'd love to hear all about it.
