March/April Spending Ban

Hey Dolls

Welcome to March jeezzzzooo where did the first 2 months of the year go.

Well my friend gets married in June but come May we are heading to Benidorm for the hen Doo :) I'm super excited and can't wait.

Sooo from 01.03.13 - 01.05.13 2 whole months I'm having a spending ban and going to sell some unused items and possessions on eBay to help raise me some pennies for some duty free spending.

I won't be buying any Make Up, Clothes, magazines, Shoes. Accessories, handbags. Nothing, none I don't know how I'm going to cope.

Obviously ill still buy necessities like food and drink (Not Alcohol) but no little treats.

Ill need all the help that I can get cause I'm a sucker for something new.

Have you ever done a spending ban?
What helped you get over the urge to shop?

Thanks for reading

  1. I'm on a spending ban now (till mid-March). I extended it after breaking the ban because of MUA's offer. Here are a few tips:
    1. Put everything you almost buy or want to buy on an Excel file. Keep looking at your stash and go to the Excel file much later and delete stuff you don't want. Now I have only six items in the Excel file.
    2. Pretend everything is on it's way in the mail and will reach your address in a month.
    3. Subscribing to a beauty box/magazine beforehand has helped a lot!
    4. I joined a tonne of giveaways.
    5. Now I have more money to blow up next week - think of that!
    6. I do more manis and EOTDs. That way I play with makeup without buying more.
    7. I'm in the process of a huge make-up audit. Am indexing everything from polish to powders in an Excel file. That helps, too.
    You've just given me a great idea for a post!
