We’ve all heard the old adage ‘Buy cheap, Buy twice’ and I’m sure most of us know that it’s pretty spot on, I’ve definitely found the odd bargain product or item that’s worked fabulously for me but I do believe that most of the time you get what you pay for.
Once we get out of debt I want to be able to make a #lifestyleupgrade here and there, these are things that aren’t in the budget at the moment (although I am side hustling my bum off to afford some of them before we get to our debt free date) but are items I’ll be happy to spend out on once we have some more money wiggle room.
I’m keeping track of them here and I’m planning to do a post about each one I tick of (might be a mini review/might be some info on how I got a better deal on them and saved money/might just be pretty pictures of new clothes!)
- Bed linen – Ours newest bed spread is around 6 years old and is looking a bit past its best
- Fancy doorbell – We really want one of those Ring doorbells that come up with video on your phone when someone ding dongs
- New clothes – I want clothes that wear, wash and last better…I have no idea where to shop for them but I would love a good wardrobe of solid basics.
- Upgraded Skincare – I have tried the Alpha H range before (mini version) and it did wonders for my skin and some of my acne scarring but it costs a small fortune for some of the products.
- Semi-permanent make-up – I am lazy when it comes to make-up (can you believe I actually used to be a beauty blogger way back when!) I love the look of it and it makes me feel more confident when I wear it but I can’t find the time in my morning routine for it and it gets ruined at work usually anyway. I’m looking at getting my Eyebrows and Eyeliner done, It costs £600 and lasts 18 months but it would be soo worth it.
