Sometimes in life we all get a bit spendy, which is fine as long has you have the money to do so. Trouble is sometimes we spend a bit too much and fail to save anything for those longer term financial goals. I promised myself at the start of the year that I would be more sensible with my money as I wanted to have a little nest egg set aside. Unfortunately that nest is still empty, whoops!
This is why I have decided to stick myself on a self-imposed spending ban. I need to bump start my savings pot. This may sound like a funny time to start, especially with the summer holidays coming up, but I know I can find ways to still have fun on my family holidays without spending out on unnecessary extras. You know the ones I mean, I don’t need to be buying new books or all those toiletry minis we tell our selves we need. No that usual pre holiday trip is not happening.
Instead I shall be doing my best to save my ‘pocket money’, yes I’m 33 and I called it that, but that is the type of ban I am imposing. The kids are not going to lose out on holiday treats, though I am challenging myself to do this with as little financial outlay as possible.
I’m not in any fear of running out of any items I consider necessary as part of my beauty regime. I have a big enough stash from my ‘Oh, l’m just buying this to review for the blog’. Don’t judge we’ve all used that excuse!
I’m actually quite excited about this and am using it as opportunity to challenge myself. Keep your eyes peeled for related blog posts including a project 10 pan, shop my stash posts e.t.c.
