Long-term spending ban


Dear readers,

After running out of space for all my beauty products I've willingly decided to put myself on a strict spending ban. A second goal I wish to achieve is to save some vacation money and finally be able to go to the Canary islands as I've never been there before... I know, shame on me!

Last year I tried following this challenge for a month but I simply ended up spending twice as much the following month.

This time I'm going for a longer run, hopefully 6 months will be enough to cure me from having too many spending sprees in the future. Let's see how that works out...

The only purchase I'll allow myself will be to refill any true empties, that is, no more backups left either. Believe me when I tell you that this is almost a new installment of Mission Impossible, lol.

One thing I'm doing already is deleting all mailing offers aka temptation. I can't bring myself to cancel all my mailing subscriptions as I love all the online stores I'm subscribed to but I don't allow myself to open up any of those alluring emails.

Physical stores I don't have much to worry about as I almost never shop there, 90% of my purchases are done online so that's one problem less.

What about you? Do you like challenging yourself to see what you're capable of?

  3. I am on a no spend too. I am going to try and do it for the whole of the rest of the year. It is shocking how much make up related stuff I have and because I need to clear off debts I am going to try really hard not to buy any unnecessary stuff. Good luck x

    1. Oh, wow! What a huge commitment. I don't know if I would be able to resist temptation for that long. In case of emergency we could always revert to a beauty swap, lol. Getting make up for someone else doesn't count, does it? Thanks for stopping by and good luck to you too <3
