100 Day 'Spending Ban' 2013

Hello there!! :) Happy 2013!!! EEEPPP!!!!!!!!!! it's now offically 1month until I go to Australia!!! Scary!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, last night on Twitter, the lovely Sandra from The Black Pearl Blog decided that she would start a Spending Ban because she, like most of us #bbloggers, has a penchant for spending a little TTOO much money on 'essentials'! So she shouted out to the community and a whole load of us decided to take part in it too! :) Seeing as it's ssoo close to me going away, I thought it would be a good way to save some extra pennies towards my trip...............I am not allowed ANY EXTRA SPENDING other than that for my Trip!! I DON'T NEED ANYTHING ELSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D

I'm not sure what the Rules are but here are mine: 

  • NO WEEKLY OR MONTHLY MAGAZINES, this includes More!, Now, Closer, Heat, Star, Cosmopolitan or any other Magazine of ANY TYPE (until I fly on 1st Feb as I'll definitely need something then to entertain me!!!)
  • NO LATTES/HOT CHOCOLATES/TEA/SOUP/SANDWICHES/MUFFINS/CAKES/ETC from Caffe Nero!!!!!! NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • ABSOLUTELY NO BUYING ONLINE NO MAKE-UP, NO NOTHING!! I HAVE ENOUGH!!!!!!!
  • NO BUYING MAKE UP FROM BOOTS/SUPERDRUG/SUPERMARKETS I MUST WALK BY!!
  • NO BUYING ANYTHING FOR ANYBODY..............NO EXCEPTIONS!!! 
This will be hard as I'm always popping into town when I'm at work and thinking I NEED to buy stuff!!!! I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT NEED TO BUY ANYTHING EXTRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Like I said, the only exceptions to this are things i need for Australia..........this money comes out of a separate account anyway.....in fact, I could do with putting more money INTO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) 

Here are the fellow #bbloggers/Twitter people who are doing it with me:


Sandra from The Black Pearl Blog 

Jane from Janye's Kitschen
Grace from allthatslap 
Anne from Fashiony Nails

Shona from freshbeautyxox 
Alice from Bright Town Girl  

 Natalie from natalieroseanne

 Jo from Beauty and the Book

So if you would also like to take part, leave a comment and I'll be sure to put a link above!! :) 

Good Luck with it! I know I'll need all the help I can get!!! EEE!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D 

happy new year xoxoxoxo

  8. I'm trying to put myself on a spending ban for a couple of months too, I want to save up for a rather expensive bag. The thing I always struggle with is the special offers & sales when something seems like a bargain. :(
