Shopping Ban

shopping

A couple of weeks ago I saw this challenge on Danielle's blog & my initial thought was: how insane. See, I answered yes to all the questions, I can relate; I have a shopping problem & the thought of not buying anything for 100 days? Yikes! It pains me slightly to have to do this but desperate times call for drastic measures, I need to stop burying my head in the sand before I end up bankrupt. Okay, slight exaggeration but I do live well beyond my means! I intend to finish the challenge on June 1st (which is technically only 83 days but who's counting?) & my rules are:

One No shopping for clothes, shoes or accessories,

Two No make-up or nail polish,

Three No skincare or toiletries until I've used all the stuff I have,

Four & no take-aways!

Essentials such as food & travel don't count & I'm allowing myself magazines & social events (eating out, nights out, cinema, gigs etc).

If you'd like to join the challenge, read the initial post HERE
Wish me luck!

  10. Good Luck Steph! I'm participating too, I can't believe the new Domino Dollhouse stuff has come out on the day I've started. Want to cry haha.

    I'm hoping to save up enough to treat myself to a Mac computer because I've lusted after one for years.

    1. Thanks lovely! That's like I went to London yesterday & all I could buy was food wahhh. A Mac computer would be amazing though, definitely worth it!

  13. This is exactly the inspiration I was looking for, thank you! In the past few months I've realised my spending has escalated and need a serious intervention. I'll be attempting this myself over the next few months. Wish me luck :D!
