The Spending Ban

Oh the dreaded spending ban. With May coming up (cue JT's it's gonna be may), I've decided to stop shopping for a whole month. While this may not seem hard for you, I go on weekly shopping trips, so I'm kind of panicking. This shopping ban includes: Beauty products, clothing, and all around non essential items (meaning my 3x a day starbucks habit is going to be abruptly halted). I'm hoping that this spending ban will help me save money, and also reduce the clutter in my house and my life!

Have you ever gone on a spending ban? Do you have any advice for me?

  1. This is sooo difficult but I have to take these bans every once in a while as well. Crazy how much you spend on the daily and don't even realize!

    Best of luck!


  2. Hi Lexi, lovely blog you got too!
    Only advice on this post I have is: stay out of the shopping streets and block your webshop pages haha :p

    I couldn't do it, but good luck!

  3. Plan a little vacation with all the money you'll save on your spending ban. It'll add up quick! :)


  4. I've done these before too, and it's about time I do another! Good luck, you can hold out! It's a great excuse to do non-cash related things.

  6. Oh good luck... I've tried and failed many times! Haha. I'm sure it will add up quickly though! I always steal clothes from my cousin when I'm trying to save. Makes it a little more fun :)
