3. Head to Gap – this season’s sale is phenomenal – I bought the blue leopard
vans I’d been lusting after for £19.99! Plus the new season is Rebekkah
Bay’s first full collection (she is the reason my wardrobe is 70% Cos) –
I need to get my hands on these jeans before they sell out:

4. January is statistically the best time to put an offer in on a house. So if you have been looking, now is the time to bite the bullet – you’re more likely to be able to haggle and get a reduced price.
5. Can’t afford to go out? I’m doing some DIY around my flat to help spruce up the place, but also a good excuse to stay indoors rather than spend my non existent savings. I’ve just painted our living room from magnolia to brilliant white – it looks so much fresher – and makes me want to stay at home and enjoy it.
6. Get cooking! Winter is the best time to experiment with great stew recipes – cook one on a Sunday and it will last you through the week. Perfect for January when you could be spending your lunch money on Gap goodies, instead!

Absolutely agree with your list and will be working my way through it, Paris and Barcelona trip booked, then I think I will jump to no.3 how gorgeous are those jeans if that is the shape of things to come from Gap I am thoroughly inspired!
The new season Gap is gorgeous, back to cool forward-thinking basics, the Gap we all know and love x
PS don't forget to look at my Barcelona frugal city guide before you go – some FAB restaurant recommendations – Catalan is a MUST-DO!

I didn't know that January is the best time to put an offer on a house, we have been looking for ages for a house but to no avail 🙁 Perhaps January will be our month 🙂
Yes, I read it in a magazine article…and funnily enough, I put an offer in on my house and managed to negotiate, too! Good luck with yours!

Funny you mention pure brilliant white; we've been slowly changing our entire house from rather colorful mix of Indian inspired shades to pure brilliant white. It seems to make the place so much lighter!
