May Shopping Ban... dark times are ahead...

I have decided, well it was decided upon looking at my bank balance that I am going on a shopping BAN for the Month of May. Why? You may ask would a self confessed shopaholic do such a crazy thing? Well I just paid return flights to Thailand for my friends wedding which I leave for in 6 weeks and I paid a months rent and won't be getting paid again til the last day of this month. Yup broke...(Also I would like some spending money whilst in Thialand...) The other reason is if I don't make a big deal about this and put myself on a "ban" I will do what I did last night which was had some time to kill so wandered through David Jones only to find myself purchasing OPI new Pirates of the Carribean collection (reviews to come), you see my point? 

Honestly I have enough of everything to last me through this month and I want to do this for myself to prove to myself that I actually can have self restraint, I just chose not to most times. 

I know a couple of other bloggers who are doing the same and I hope we can all support each other. 

Tough times are ahead.

  1. Good luck. I have to say I used to spend my whole pay every month until I opened a ING Savings Maximiser. Best thing I ever did was the automatic savings plan, it just takes the money out every month and you don't even notice. It's locked away and it takes a full 24 hours to transfer it back to your bank account.

    Needless to say, I'm now sitting on a nice pile of cash. SRSLY, best thing you'll ever do!

  2. Good luck, you can do it. If you are tempted to shop, just think how much cheaper everything will be in Thailand. You can shop up a storm once you get there.
