Spending Ban- January

Hello pretty people! As some of you may know I'm getting married this year and so I have a lot of saving to do! In order to achieve my goals I have inflicted a spending ban upon myself to stop me from buying anything unnecessary. Here I aim to share my tips and tricks that I am trying out in order to not spend money and use up all the products sitting at the bottom of my drawer. I know many people try a spending ban especially in January but seem to lose focus in the following months!

Let me tell you how I have done so far....

January
In January I was really quite good, I only bought a few bits from Lush that I needed...you can see the haul here. I have found that this month was pretty easy for me as I didn't get the chance to go shopping much.

A couple of things I have been trying to ask myself is "do I need it?" ,  "will I use it up?". If the answer to these are no then I don't buy it. I also ask myself "do I have something similar?" if the answer is yes then I don't buy it. This can work for all manner of things not just beauty products, its great when your food shopping too!
