Yes, I've unashamedly jumped on another blogger bandwagon. I'm about three days away from wearing disco pants and reviewing a Glossy Box (that's a lie, I'd never pay for a Glossy Box. Does anyone actually pay for a Glossy Box?).
This particular bandwagon, however, suits me down to the ground at the moment, because I'm on a bit of a mission to reduce my expenditure. It's pretty simple really; 100 days of no non-essential spending. I started a few days ago, so I have to keep it up until April 24th. Easy! (Ahem).
Here's my personal rules:
- Absolutely no buying of clothes, shoes or accessories.
- No nail varnish, or any make up (except foundation, if I run out).
- No toiletries, unless I run out of any essentials. Note to self: Soap and Glory hand cream is not actually essential.
- No 'food on the run'. So, no paying for lunch at work, or buying sandwiches at train stations because I was too lazy to plan ahead.
- No magazines.
- No music, DVDs, or books.
- No home stuff.
- No stationary, unless it's absolutely necessary and I've made 100% sure that I don't already own the item in question.
Wish me luck...
Are you on a spending ban? How are you finding it?
