Who am I and what have you done with the real me?! The words ‘spending ban’ and I do not go hand in hand, I’m forever spending money on more beauty products that I don’t need, buying things in the sale purely because they are in the sale and what not. I think now has come to the point where it’s time to slow it all down and use what I’ve got. Throughout January, I made a list of what I bought, when and how much it cost. I look back at it now and actually think I did better than previous months, but now is the time to calm it down and save the money instead. It gets to a point where I have ordered things, completely forgotten I’d bought it and put it to the side for now anyway! As I am going to Disney in May, it’s time to keep more money to be able to enjoy myself when I am there and also to add to my savings.
I like to think I’m being sneaky and oh so clever seeing as there are only 28 days in February obviously meaning it’s less than a usual month! I will have some rules and that’s to spend money on things that I do need. I need petrol in my car and food in my tummy, but that is hopefully as far as its going to go this month. I don’t need any new clothes, makeup or skincare regardless or whether its a bargain as I know I have plenty. The only makeup I will allow myself to buy is a new eyeliner or foundation if it runs out as I have enough of everything else. Yesterday was a real test for me as I went shopping with a friend and didn’t spend a single penny! Ok, we had a meal in Pizza Hut (it was so delicious) but I had to feed myself didn’t I?! I’m hoping I can actually stick to this plan or I’m going to look a right plonker. If you have previously done a spending ban, please let me know if you have any tips as I’d love to hear them.
Wish me luck! Would you like to see updates of how I’m getting on? x
