Since we moved to ThePalace(OfLove) we’ve been rather profligate with the cash.
We have a pretty rigorous (but pretty generous) budget, which we generally adhere to quite well – except for the savings component, which recently is inevitably spent on stuff for ThePalace(OfLove).
The final straw was the weekend visit to ikea afterwhich we said “no more” and made a plan to institute austerity measures for the haushold from the beginning of April and a big focus on saving madly until at least June. And we’ve made a vow not to visit ikea until March 2014 at the earliest!
(And for me – no more cookbooks or camera lenses, I’ve developed somewhat of a recent habit of acquiring both)
