So I'm officially one week into my Spending Ban and I'm pretty pleased with how it's gone.
I mentioned in my first post that I've got a lot of events coming up, two weddings and a hen party so I knew a strict no buy was out for me, but I've made some good progress that I thought I'd share!
On the first day of the No Buy, I deleted all my shopping apps on my phone. That was a tough one. Bye bye eBay, QVC, and Amazon. You knew me so well. I'm always on my phone and always browsing something. Parcels are forever popping through my door. There's been loads of occasions where I've went to my phone to check one of those apps only to be crushingly reminded, honey, you're on a no buy. Ugh, the struggle is real.
Anyway I've hit my stride this week and it's actually not as hard as I thought. I've spent money on food only, stuck to my hen party budget and even had some left to spare so I could go for lunch with friends. Instead of buying a new outfit for the hen party, I borrowed a top from my sister and a skirt I've had for ages that I never wear! And I loved it!
I did however buy a dress in the Monsoon sale, hello 70% off! I felt like that was kind of allowed because I knew I was going to have to get something for one of the weddings coming up, and since is came in at £23.50, I'm still calling this week a win.
