I just returned Sunday night after a whirlwind tour in Portland seeing friends.
It was so wonderful to be back in the Pacific Northwest, I really miss so many things about Portland.
While I was there, I did some shopping and picked up 6 of these plates on sale at Anthropologie.
Anthropologie is not known for their cheap decor, however these plates where only $7.95 each,
sturdy, microwave and dishwasher safe. Plus, they were on my list for 30 days. I am trying a new
technique to save money, where if I want something, I write it down, and if after 30 days, I still want it,
then I go and buy it. So far, many items have not made it to the 30 day mark, and I have saved loads of money. It's a simple trick, but it works for me.
Here is what is currently on my 30 day list:
|I cannot wait to read this book cover to cover. It has so many beautiful and inspiring ideas.|
|I have been dying to get a French Oven from Le Creuset|
|And this oven-proof skillet also from Le Creuset. All items can be purchased in almost any bright color imaginable!|
That's all for now, we'll see what new items make it on my list next!
Do you have any helpful tricks to cut down spending?
