Over the past few months I've started, and failed at more spending bans than I care to remember. I love making a cheeky purchase, and have enough product at home to keep me going for some time.
For some reason, the words 'spending ban' make me come out in a cold sweat, and my debit card twitchy, so instead of committing to not buy anything new, I'm going to reward myself for every product I use up.
I did something similar many months ago (post here) and found it a really good way of spending less, but without using the dreaded words 'spending ban'.
I'd love for you to get involved if you're a product hoarder like me, or just fancy clearing down your stash a little.
My plan is to put:
50p in a piggy bank for each sachet/small sample I use up
£1 for full size products (cleansers, mascaras, etc)
£5 for high price items (perfumes, anything over £50)
After a few months, I'll see how much I have saved and treat myself to a haul (well, I can't be good forever!).
