Like the title says I’m actually going on a spending ban. For three months. And I’m on day two and I’m already freaking out about it, and I would not do it if I didn’t feel like I had to.
The main reason that I’m going on this spending ban is that I want to break this bad shopping habit that I’ve got myself into for the past months. Since we don’t have a lot of money we pretty much have to plan every little expense, or not really but at least we have to plan for bigger ones like ordering clothes or buying a new video game. And for the last months I’ve started to plan how to spend my next incoming money already before I have them, and when I get them I order some new pieces of clothing or the new makeup I want and then I don’t have money for anything but food for the rest of the month, and that’s the habit I want to break.
Another reason that I’m going on a spending ban is that it would be nice to have some money left on my bank account at the end of the month and maybe even longer than that, something I haven’t had in quite some time now. And the third and last reason is that I want to prove to myself that I can come up with things to blog about without buying anything new.
Rules of Spending Ban.
I will be on a spending ban during the months of March, April and May.
I will give myself and allowance on 200 SKR a month, which equals about 20 Euro, to spend if I run out of primer, mascara or other things I really need.
If I don’t spend the allowance on other things I will be allowed to fix my hair once during this three months.
I will still be allowed to buy sushi and candy, or I would go in to a tantrum pretty soon and give it all up.
If I make it through this three months I will treat myself to a Pipdig theme or another blog theme equal in price.
I know going on a spending ban won’t be easy but I know I can do it, and the thought of getting a new theme for the blog out of it will definitely help. I think knowing that I won’t be able to buy things will be way harder for me than the actually not buying things part since I really love that planing and looking things up on the internet part of shopping. But I guess I can still do that even if I won’t be buying any of the things.
I plan to blog about how the spending ban is going so make sure to check back on me and give me some encouragement, okay?
