Week 6 & 7, 100 Day Shopping Ban

These last two weeks have been easier for me!

I've started to think more about money value and if it is a reasonable price to pay for what it is. For example, there was a top I tweeted about earlier in the week and whether I should get it or not, but I didn't! I didn't because it was £20 and instead when my shopping ban was lifted for my holiday week starting Saturday 14th I went to primark and bought 3 things for £4 less than that top! I think I've pretty much learnt my lesson! Would you agree?

Jeggings: Topshop Everything Else: Primark

I went shopping with my  boyfriend Saturday and with my shopping ban lifted like I explained for my holiday from the 14th to the 21st I was really happy to go shopping and not worry about the money! I got the few bits pictured above! With a holiday you can't expect the money to not be spent which is simply why I lifted my ban for this week! I will definitely be enjoying it and I have a good feeling I won't even be spending a lot! :) Also with a nice week to not worry about my little spending ban in the middle I feel like I get a little break from it and it might stop me going a little mad. I honestly think I will be shopping less now that I'm giving myself little lessons of how to shop!

Are you doing a shopping ban too and would you consider doing it?

  1. Oh spending bans! Sometimes they're tough! But they definitely teach you about money mangement... I've put my spending on hold until my birthday. I've gone three weeks & while that isn't very long, it's a struggle for me! I agree, though... shopping less makes you think! xo, Megs
