Today I hit the 4 week mark and I'm pleased to say I've only chucked my pennies at one beauty product so far (see last weeks update on what that was)
There's quite a few things I want, mainly the Rimmel Apocalips so for that reason I've just completely skipped passed Boots and other places of temption. I almost bought ELLE magazine on Saturday for the 20 quid Kurt Geiger voucher but lets be honest, I would end up spending more than 20! I'm glad I decided to join in with the spending ban. I'm rekindling my love for old forgotten about products, fully using things up instead of buying more and most importantly, I'm learning I don't need to buy a new mascara/lipstick/highlighter just because it's on offer.
Although I haven't splashed the cash on beauty I have spent more this week than the last 3 weeks on things like food shopping but it needed to be done. If next week gets hard I plan to use a beauty treatment voucher I got for Christmas to cheer myself up and I promise I won't leave with a bag full of things I 'needed'.
Are you on a spending ban?
How did you get on this week?
