Spending Ban Update Number 2!

I've been on my spending ban since 15th January and I can't believe that I have still not spent anything! I have been avoiding shops though and not browsing online unless it is looking at stuff for the baby.

I have been into Boots a few times and I am so tempted to spend my advantage points (£13) on one of the apocolips glosses/lipstick and some of the new Barry M polishes but I am trying to hold off as long as possible - I'd somehow feel like I was cheating even though it's not "money".


Look what the lovely Emma from Ems Mixed Bag bought me to help with my spending ban!
I love that I can't take the money out unless I smash the pot so hopefully I can fill it right to the top!

Are you doing a spending ban? How are you getting on?

  2. Such a great idea which I majorly need to adopt. If I stopped browsing online I'd save myself so much money. Well she and keep on going- you're doing great! X x

    1. Wow that is a lot of money! I'm not smashing it until it is full to the top - then I'm going shopping!

  6. I've done the same and used a ceramic saving pot - the jar was just too easy to dip into and seeing the cash was too tempting! lol. Hoping to fill it and then count up - Paris trip no.3 maybe?! x Gem wwwblackstarrynight.blogspot.co.uk

  7. I'd never manage not to smash it! Can't wait for my ban to be up - it's doing my head in now! I have spent some leftover Christmas money on a couple of things so don't think that's cheating too much as the money was given to me before the ban started! xx
