November 2022 new in

Well here we are back with the new in posts after a little bit of a break, I was hoping November wouldn't be such a spendy month but then I remembered I had Christmas presents to buy for people and I ended up just purchasing a lot of things for the sake of it when I look back on what I have bought. There was plenty happening throughout November which did influence some spending and here is what I picked up...

Me and Liam seem to have taken a liking to Tim Horton's lately and to be honest it is costing us a small fortune as it isn't exactly local. We have both taken a liking to vanilla drinks so when I was in Home Bargains and saw this jar of vanilla coffee for just £1.99 I had to pick it up in hopes of it tasting at least a little like a Tim Horton's and it helping us save more money.

I am planning plenty of cosy nights over the winter period, I really don't need to be going outside unless it is really necessary plus I need to get nice and warm after playing football so cosy nights sound perfect. I have treated us to these hot chocolate spoons in the hope that they will become the perfect winter evening companion. A good hot chocolate whilst gaming in the winter is essential for me so fingers crossed they do the trick.

I am hoping that over the festive period me and Liam can spend a bit more time together than we have been doing. I picked up these gingerbread house kits which he isn't too keen on however, it should provide a fun filled yet probably argumentative afternoon for us. These were pretty cheap so I am not expecting much from them but you never know they might surprise us.

I am determined to set aside more time for me to just switch off and relax, something that hasn't happened in 2022 due to it turning into a crazy busy year ( I can't complain though it has been one of the best years) I picked up this Marvel jigsaw set in the hopes that I can use this to switch off for an hour or so every evening and just let my brain focus on something other than work or the websites. Fingers crossed it works.

Leah Williamson is one of my favourite footballers so when I saw this coaster in the National Football Museum I knew it was coming home with me. I love this although it wont be being used as a coaster, this is now pride of place in my little home office which has a football theme. It looks great on top of my Kallax unit which is just filled with football shirts, next up a Williamson shirt.

Football themed purchases have definitely become more frequent in 2022 and I really aren't complaining. I picked up this book on a recent trip to Costco and I can't wait to sit down and give it a read. Granted I think it is aimed more towards kids however, I couldn't leave it behind due to it featuring the men's & women's game.

Finally after so many years of being a fan I got to see N-Dubz in November, the day the tickets to their comeback tour went on sale I grabbed a couple and the countdown begun. Of course I saved up some money to buy some merchandise however, some of the prices were still a bit too much for me. I ended up saving a bit of money by picking up a hoodie from outside the venue and I love it. This is going to be perfect for lounging around in.

Inside the venue though I really couldn't resist this long sleeved t-shirt with the logo on the front and strong again down the sleeves. I have to say strong again is one of my favourite N-Dubz songs so it was clear that it was this one that was going to be purchased rather than the playing with fire one. It actually fits really nice too and I am sure I am going to get plenty of wear out of it.

I have to say thought this Uncle B t-shirt is by far my favourite. It is a bit of an acid washed style with the old album cover on which just so happens to be my favourite N-Dubz album, the quality of this is amazing and I know I am definitely going to get plenty of wear out of this one. I am so glad I made sure I had plenty of money available to me when I was off to this concert as I wouldn't have wanted to miss out on any of the purchases I made. 

Oh look another football item, which just so happens to be another shirt to add to the collection. I am loving buying football shirts with my favourite female players on the back these days and at long last I have a shirt with Lucy Staniforth on the back. I am loving this years Man Utd home shirt so I knew it would be the first of the 3 I bought although I do have a few more purchases from the United store lined up.

Finally we have yet another shirt but this time it is an ice hockey one. I am loving the ice hockey lately and my dad treated me, my sister & my nephew to one of this seasons Leeds Knights shirts. I ended up finally getting a Tate Shudra one after weeks of not being able to decide who I wanted on the back. Now I just need to save up to get the other 2 shirts they will be wearing this season. 

I am definitely impressed with the purchases I have made in November and I am already 100% December is going to be another spendy month. I think it is time to get all my spending out of me before the new year when I am determined to get my savings accounts built up so we can get jobs around the house done and I can save for those more expensive purchases I am planning. 

What was your favourite purchase from November?
