April Spending Ban


Hello April! Where have you come from? It's scary how quickly this year is flying by, before we know it we'll be discussing Halloween outfits! I am starting April on a spending ban! Boo for me. I've never put myself on a spending ban before as I always thought I managed my money quite well but I have a few big events coming up this April so rushing out to MAC as soon as my pay packet hits my account is something that is being put on hold. 

April is a busy old month for me, not only am I moving house again at the end of the month, it's also the month of my best friend's hen party and of course wedding!! So I really cannot afford to spurge on make up or beauty products I don't need. Instead this month I am going to shop my stash! I have collected quite a lot of make up over the last fews years, some of which could probably do with being thrown away! Damn that pretty packaging.

 This is going to be a 30 day spending ban as I'm not sure could I deal with much longer, and I'll do an update part of the way through. I would appreciate any tips in the comments below as I find it very difficult not to buy new things once I've been paid.

Wish me luck guys!

  1. I just finished my March spending ban and am happy to report that a month goes by pretty fast - it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be! The ban really helped me save up some money so I could get a nicer camera and I made a lot of great rediscoveries in my makeup collection. Overall, it's nice to take a step back from all the beauty buying and be a little more thoughtful with our hard-earned dollars. Good luck, you'll do great!

  3. I've been thinking about going on a spending ban as well! But I can't decided whether it should be clothing or make up! ugh! It's not like I spend waaay to much, but I'd like to proof to myself that I can do something like that!

  7. Good luck chick, it's much easier than you think I did a spending ban through January, and through out the months I saw things pop up I liked and wanted so I made a list of all the things…and at the end of January I'd forgotten about half of them! I'm not sure why but writing them down seemed to help me :) x
