As you all know, I started a spending ban. As you also probably know, I have been rubbish at sticking to it.
If I’m honest, I am really surprised at exactly how hard I found it. You’d think that not shopping would be easy, but the second you tell me not to do something, the second I want to do it even more.
This has resulted in two weeks of a lot of shopping. I’ve put up a couple of little hauls – one from a day out in Birmingham and another from the Pro Beauty show, and no doubt there are a few bits that have even been missed from these that I bought in my lunch breaks.
So I have decided to re-start my spending ban. This time it will run up until 20th March, as I will be attending the VitalityShow on 21st March, and having my birthday shortly after. I figure if I can’t make it 3 weeks without buying anything, I really do have a problem!
As an added incentive, here’s a photo of the stack of unused products in my bedroom...the shame...(there are also lots more in the boxes!)
Sam from Pootles Papercrafts very kindly sent me a pocket size notebook set to keep track of my spending in, so I will be writing everything down for the next three weeks, even if it does mean recording a slip up.
I’ll need your encouragement, so please send me links to any spending ban updates you have, and wish me luck!
