So, that’s the first week of my personal ‘no-spend’ challenge over and, to be honest, I’ve quite enjoyed thinking about what I’m spending rather than just going ahead and buying something just because it catches my eye or because I ‘think’ I need it. I did have a couple of small lapses this week but I’m not going to beat myself up about it and I’ll just have to do better next week.
So here is the list of things I could have spent my money on but decided not to.
A scarf from Ollie and Nic £22.00
A book offer in WH Smith £ 8.00
A book for my Kindle £ 3.90
Treats for my horse £ 7.00
Saving me £40.90
These are the unnecessary things I did buy this week:
A book for my Kindle £0.86
A box of 4 cupcakes £4.00
Costing me £4.86
So my overall total saving this week was £36.04!
In a normal week I would have bought those things without a second thought and, whilst they would have been nice to have, I don’t feel I’m missing out at all.
So, roll on next week!! I WILL remain strong and if I feel myself giving in to temptation I’ll just have another little peek at my bag.
Until the next time,
