Spending Ban Update #1


1 week in and thought it would be nice to do a weekly update on my spending ban.  I received a few promotional emails from brands this week which would usually make me want to go in and purchase but I was good, I just deleted them without reading, so not to tempt myself.  

Me and my husband went shopping on Wednesday night as he was looking for a new shirt for a party. Mostly in men's shops I was ok until we had to pop into Boots to get toiletries for him ahhhhh!  I managed to stay good and not even look at the makeup, phew! 

I really needed to purchase a new mascara as my current was one starting to run dry so having a rummage through my stash found a maybelline one that I purchased last month that I forgot about, opps! So that saved me.

So I survived the first week, here's hoping week 2 is just as successful!

  2. I'm trying a spending ban at the moment too. I'm going to New York in December, but not going into Topshop and Urban Outfitters on the way to work is so hard.
