After reading Sophia's post here on doing a spending ban I decided that this is the perfect thing for me to do as I am ALWAYS spending money and then I constantly moan about how much money I have. I am currently unemployed and a full time student so I am relying heavily on my student loan to pay for things such as my car, car insurance, petrol etc.
I am forever spending money on the latest beauty items, DVD's, books and other pointless things: none of which I need. For example, in the past week I have bought 21 DVD's as well as an MUA haul, two Revlon balm stains and a Revlon lip butter (I didn't need any of it, I just WANTED it).
I have decided like Sophia, that the best way for me to do this spending ban is to set myself some rules about what I can spend money on etc.
1. I am not allowed to spend money on ANY beauty products, DVD's, books or any other pointless items that I do not need for 100 days.
2. If I NEED something then I am only allowed to spend up to £2.00 on any one item.
3. The only things I am allowed to pay for completely is my petrol, car insurance and car tax.
I will try my hardest to stick to these rules and will do updates about how I am getting along (hopefully not failing!). As a treat for doing this I am going to purchase my first MAC lipstick, I know they're not that expensive but it's money I can't afford to always be spending.
So I will do this challenge from today, 6th September to the 14th December (think I counted that right). Wish me luck!
