February Spending Ban

While other bloggers have been on a spending ban this month, I seem to have been doing the opposite and spending more than I normally do! Things I've bought this month include a Cath Kidston bag and purse, a BHS duvet set, a load of cosmetics from ELF, Look Beauty and MUA, and various things from Primark, Superdrug and Boots. Oh, and let's not forget an expensive camera. So, for the month of February, I will be on a spending ban. I'm up for the challenge. I don't know how well I'll cope though. I can go weeks without buying something, but that's on my own terms. I think it's going to be hard if there's something I really want. To stop temptation, I'm just not going to browse any online shops. However, I read a lot of blogs and follow a lot of bloggers on Twitter, so there's still going to be a lot of temptation, especially when someone posts a haul! 

I'll update you guys half way through February and then at the end of February.

It's not a final idea yet, but I'm thinking of doing a spending ban every other month. So, I can spend in March, but not in April, for example. We'll see! UPDATE: I'm now thinking once a week every month. I'll still be saving money, but it'll be easier to achieve!

Is anyone else currently on a spending ban, or planning to be on one?


  1. Good Luck :) I'm on day 28 out of 100 and it's not been too bad.
    I've come to do a wishlist for this week and can't think of anything! x

  2. ooh that will be hard work doing one every other month for a year, but it should stop you buying unnecessary items!
    We're doing a ban too and its not going too badly...but I'm desperate to pick up a few things!

    1. Yeah, I'm now thinking about doing one once a week every month after February. Still not sure yet though!

  3. I hope it goes well for you! I've tried many times but always give up after a couple of weeks x

  4. I like the idea of doing every other month, good luck!

    I also read your previous post and just wanted to send some love and let you know I relate xx
