Spending Ban Update - Week 1

Ok, I don't have much to say here. As you can see from my weekend haul post I did disasterously with my first week of my spending ban. I'm just getting back into the swing of English life and lets be honest, most of my lifestyle invovles shopping and beauty treatments.

I think I've bought all I need for the next few months (hopefully all summer!) so I definitely will be following my spending ban. Also having a look at my bank account made me cry a little inside at the realisation of how much I have spent when I should be saving. I think that might have been my insentive. THE GUILT.

So this week:
1. No taxis, or coffees, or sweets, or trips to the shop, or anything really.
2. I'm only allowed to buy my lunch and the manicure I have booked for Saturday.
3. NO MORE SPENDING.
4. Especially eBay purchases and sales - I did't realise how much the cost of postage had gone up actually. I'll be leaving that alone for a while.
5. I must keep a diary of anything I do buy so I can visualise how much things are costing.
