Spending Ban update - Week 4.
Oh goodness, it's only been 4 weeks?! That is quite shocking news, because it has been a lot harder than I thought. And unfortunately, because I've been going out for drinks and meals a lot during the first 2 weeks of university, my spending ban hasn't made that much of a difference to any extra cash I've had. Although I suppose I would have a lot less if I'd been shopping!
So for the last 4 weeks, I've spent the majority of my money on going out to clubs, food shopping, and takeaways. Okay, so that's not great. But, I haven't been clothes shopping for the duration of my spending ban, and my plan is to now put away a little bit of money each week to go towards christmas shopping.
However, I do have some confessions to make. My mum has bought me a couple of clothes items to go away to university with. I know this doesn't technically break the rules of my spending ban, but its violates the morality of buying less clothes!
I'm craving a little bit of a spending splurge right now and I don't know whether to go into Boots and satisfy the urge with beauty items, or to just resist completely and run the risk of a melt down!
What do you guys think? Would you be able to cope with a 10 week spending ban on clothes?
