So… I’m Going On A Spending Ban.

Hello everyone.
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.Going On A Spending Ban

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?

  1. I’m going to do the same and I reckon I’m going to have pretty similar rules. The only money I can spend is on essentials like food and toiletries etc. I’m so bad at impulse buys and spending on things I just don’t need so only buying absolute survival items will hopefully help!

  2. Go for it! 🙂 Can’t wait to see your new blog desing in June! 😉 And looking forward to your Spending-ban series. I think it could help you to achieve your goal -> When wanna spend some money, just write about it instead. 😀
