Check out this £1 bargain (and incredibly hard to photograph) phone case I found in Poundland yesterday. I’m not usually the pretty phone case type, preferring safety* over looks but at just £1 I couldn’t resist this very Cath Kidston-esque case for my iPhone 4S.
They had a few different versions and I found it the perfect cheap pick me up for a dull, dank January. Now I know buying these frivolities isn’t necessarily thrifty but stay with me for just one second because I believe a small (and budgeted for) treat every now and again, for former shopaholic/credit-card-maniacs like myself can help with falling off the wagon when times get hard. That isn’t an official prescription to go mad and buy crap but it I’ve found allowing myself a treat every now and then means I make better choices (something to protect an expensive bit of technology rather than yet another crap DVD I will watch once and discard) with small things and the larger purchases too.
*for safety, read boring.
