Instead of spending money as soon as I get it like I did all of last year, this year I have made myself a wishlist of things that I aim to save up for. Can't say that any of the things on my list are cheap but at least this will teach me a lesson in sel- restraint and in the end it will definatelty all be worth it.
1. Macbook pro to use once I start uni (2012 buy)
2. iphone 5 once it comes out (2012 buy)
3. ghd hair straightener (2011 buy)
4. White pair of converse hi-tops (2011 buy)
5. Spending money for traveling to New York/Europe (2012)
