Use it up challenge update

A few weeks ago, I announced that I would be trying to work my way through my stash and rewarding myself for each product that I completely used up.

I'm not going to lie, I've bought new products in this time - you can see my most recent haul here.

What I have managed to do though is make myself use a few things up I would have ordinarily discarded whilst semi-full just to move on to the next thing I had my eye on.

I've saved about £14 so far, not bad for a few weeks.

I'm now increasing my challenge to a beauty related spending ban for the next 4 weeks, as I am desperate to save my funds for the Pro Beauty show weekender I have planned with the lovely Miss Charl.

I'll still be saving each time I use up a product, but on top of this, I won't be buying anything new (deodrant/cotton wool aside) unless it's vital and runs out. I have plenty stashed away to keep me going, so this should surely be easy, right?

I'll be reading lots of spending ban posts to keep me motivated, so if you have an update on how you're doing, please share it in the comments or tweet it to me!

  3. Good luck lovely!! Ill be at the pro beauty show too. :) xx

  4. Good luck with your spending ban! I'm trying to do one from December 29-January 29 and if I succeed to do it for another 2 months. I made a wishlist with big exspensive things like a house, going on a big trip etc. and it's been a huge motivation to save money.

  5. Thanks for all the encouragement everyone! Good luck with all your spending bans x
