Spending ban!

Hi everyone!

I’m so glad everything is starting to settle down and I’m able to get back into my regular blogging routine. The last few weeks have been so hectic and unfortunately we don’t have internet at the new house yet, which is driving me crazy, but I’m still hoping to be able to schedule posts for my usual Sunday and Wednesday upload.

As we have just bought a house and I also made extremely good use of my staff discount before leaving my job last week, I have decided to put myself on a spending ban! I haven’t done one of these before but have seen other bloggers do them in the past and I think they are such a good idea for those times when you really need to save money. In case you haven’t come across a spending ban before, it is pretty self-explanatory but basically I will only allow myself to buy the essentials for the next month and all treats, beauty buys and clothes spending has to stop. I am going still to let myself buy things that I need for the house and socialising with friends is OK too, but I am going to keep a close eye on what I spend in these areas as well and just make sure I don’t spend unnecessarily.

I thought it would help to blog my progress with the spending ban so then I will feel like I can’t cheat and buy things as a ‘one off’ or that don’t count. If I had internet I would try and do daily updates, but for now I will just update when I can and also on Twitter as I can use my phone to tweet.

Wish me luck (I will definitely need it!) and if any of you are currently on a spending ban and are blogging your progress please let me know in the comments below. You never know, we might be able to help each other out and I would love to read your posts!

I think that’s everything for today! I will be back on Sunday with my usual beauty post :)

Thanks for reading,

Hannah xx

  1. I am on one too after doing a small damage at Sephora last week. LOL! I do enjoy spending ban because it forces me to get creative with my posts. Good luck!

  2. @Shireen L. Platt Thank you :) It is going well so far but I find it so difficult, especially when I keep getting emails about offers that are on! x
