The Skint Diaries #2

If you are not sure what this post is about, I blogged last week ‘The Skint Diaries’ about how poor I currently am, and after the amazingly supportive comments which really spurred me on, I wanted to share with you how I got on!
I’m not going to lie, I have found this week hard work especially when it comes to spending! I have been restrained but it’s not been especially with 25% off New Look vouchers arriving in my inbox and lots of exciting Christmassy bits being advertised. The only things I have spent money on this week are petrol and a few bits for lunch. So massive fist pump for me! Whoooop!
Last Sunday I put a few bits together for a blog sale which you can find HERE. I have only made one sale of £8 so far, so a little disappointed! If anyone has any tips on making a blog sale successful please share!
On a happier note I’m also selling clothes and DVD’s over on Ebay, which you can find HERE. Quite a few have bids on and a lot of watchers, all my items end on Sunday, so fingers crossed they sell well and helps me earn some extra pennies!
On last week’s post, the first of ‘The Skint Diaries’ a few of the lovely people who commented gave me some awesome ideas on how to rise funds and one of them that was suggested a couple of times was online questionnaires which you are paid to do. I am going to look into this over the next week and will let you know how I get on!
If anyone has any other suggestions please let me know! I will try anything that’s legal/sensible!


  1. Wooo, well done Gemma! Great to see that you're so enthusiastic this week, I'm trying to save money with you too bless me :P
