Shopping Moral Dilemma

Now I know I am on a frugal trial and 'debt repayment' is my daily mantra, however, throughout this debt repayment/frugal trial lifestyle, I will, on occasions, need to go shopping. 

Specifically, I need a pair of shoes. I promise, I really do!!

Frugal Fitness Update

Boo, I haven't lost any weight this week. But yay, I didn't put any weight on so it is somewhat of a victory.

What is frugal?


"Careful when using money or food, or (of a meal) cheap or in small amounts" 
Cambridge dictionary 

Over the past couple of weeks I have been really pondering whether I am actually being frugal and what frugal actually is. Being frugal does not come naturally to me. I am a spendthrift, I like and almost need to purchase items. But my debt is such a burden for me to carry.

Frugal Fitness Update

Well I lost 1 lb this week. Ideally I would have liked more but at least I didn't put on any weight! 

The week started off well but it went downhill when some friends came to visit at the last second mid-week. Wine, chocolate and a three course meal certainly put a spanner in the works.
