Save until a million- From zero to hero day 3

When I started this whole blog thing I wanted to tell everyone about my bay trend. But also share my tips and advice on how I save money and my mindset behind it all. To be honest I’m not sure if there is a mindset behind it all but I just know that one day I’d like to say I have accomplished my money goal; To save one million pound.

Sounds crazy I know but in my pink bubble I have a vision. A vision of a million. It’s not reality but if I think it into existence it can be. If I can think of one way to make £100 then surely I can think of many more? Well I haven’t so far but guess it just takes time. At the moment I have one way and ten ways to make £100 a month makes £1000 that’s £12000 extra a year and blah blah blah etc. I just need nine more
ways, that’s nine ideas to come up with.

If anyone is actually reading this ludicrous post perhaps leave a comment with an idea. Come on don’t keep it to yourself. I’ll tell you my first way: selling my much loved clothes on eBay.

Join me in my goal. Let’s help each other make a million in reality not in daydreams 🙂

What is The Bay Trend?

I mentioned the Bay Trend in my previous post but what exactly is this? Well not only do I call this a trend but believe this is an art in itself. It’s the art of buying an on trend item for a fraction of the price; pre loved (used/worn) on eBay.

This all started when looking on eBay for a specific dress I saw in river island but couldn’t afford at the time. I tried my luck with eBay and lo and behold, it was there: “Black River Island Bodycon Dress Size 10 Worn Once”. With 2 hours and 4 minutes left on this auction I placed my bid of £2.99. I waited patiently expecting to win the dress after the auction ended but no, someone beat me to it and the auction ended with a winning bid of £6.80. After two weeks of searching and bidding on eBay I finally won my dress for £66 less than what it cost in River Island. I was a happy bunny and that’s the moment eBay stole my heart. I asked myself “Why spend £100’s when I can spend £1’s”. From that moment on I decided, it would be the Bay Trend that was set to style me for the foreseeable future.

So to sum it all up, The Bay Trend is simply seeing a key fashion piece you like in store, online or advertised somewhere else and finding the same piece on eBay for a bargain price.

To read my Top 10 Expert Tips on how to Bay Trend to bag that bargain stay tuned for my next post 🙂

High street fashion for under £5

As a young mummy I still love to look scrummy. Before becoming a mum I’d spend about £200 a month on keeping up with the latest fashion and trends. £40 on a pair of shoes and the rest on clothes and accessories. And why? To look high street sassy. Now I can do just that for under £5.

Things that usually sound too good to be true probably are but unless you can’t stomach the thought of wearing something that’s been worn at least once before then this is too good and true!

How do I do it? EBAY is my answer. A few key words here and there followed by my size and there I have it; high street heaven for a low cost price on my iPhone or laptop in a couple of clicks. Now you may think of these items as second hand but what’s more on trend than vintage at the moment? Whether it’s vintage or pre loved, it’s my own new trend; the ‘bay trend’.
