I started my 100 day spending ban yesterday, it will run until 24th April - yikes!!
Sandra from Beauty Balm had been talking about doing a ban toward the end of last year and I said I would join her, I was going to do a complete spending ban on everything but I am having a baby this year so I will need to buy maternity clothes (in moderation!)
The rules I have set for myself are:
1. No beauty products, apart from cotton wool and deodorant. I have plenty of everything else to last me 100 days.
2. No books or magazines. I do have subs to Elle, Glamour and Instyle, these have already been paid for.
3. No buying lunch in work, I have to take my own in. Lunch in work costs about £4-£5 per day so this will be a big saving.
4. I can buy maternity clothes when needed, without going overboard. I can buy birthday presents for friends and valentines present for hubby. I can go out for meals with my friends. That is all I am allowed to spend on though!
I spend so much money every month on stuff that I don't need. I have clothes with tags on, shoes still new in boxes and enough beauty products to last me for the next year! I am hoping by doing this spending ban I will teach me spend my money on items I need not want. I am also hoping it will mean I can pay off my credit card which will be great timing for me going on maternity leave!
