So it’s now been two weeks since I started my 100 Day Spending Ban Challenge and I’m actually pleased to say I’ve been sticking to it! I’m quite literally the worst person at saving money ever, but I’ve been good and not bought anything new, and I’ve even been good and stuck to bringing my own lunch into work each day which has helped save some pennies. I think I’m sticking to my spending ban so well as I don’t have many temptations near me. I haven’t gone to any shops, and the only thing near me at work is a Tesco, so I’m not walking past billions of shops each day.
There’s been a few times when I’ve spotted something online and thought about buying it for myself but I’ve reminded myself why I’m saving, and how I don’t need that extra lipstick or pair of shoes. I saw a great post on Tales Of A Pale Face’s blog on Ten Tips To Help You Survive A Spending Ban, which has really helped! Kat’s got some great tips on surviving spending bans, and I think I’m going to look into getting a Tastecard which will help save some money. Overall I’m feeling pretty positive about my spending ban so far, although I am only 14 days in, but lets hope I keep this up! If you’re on a spending ban how’s yours going?
