100 Day Spending Ban - Update 6





I've reached Day 86 of my 100 day spending ban! How exciting is this!? This will be my second last update ever on how I'm doing! I have to say though, I don't think I would have even made it this far if it was not for the support from you all, so a big thank you to everyone who helped me out and talked me out of buying!

This Fortnight's Temptations:


Parcel Forwarding Services
I put through a dummy request on PriceUSA to see what a quote would be for an order from Sephora, and it was so tough not sending through that deposit to make it real life! I picked out all the goodies I wanted, I filled out the form and I saw that final price, which was not as steep as I imagined!

Highpoint

If you live in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne then you'll know what I'm talking about! Highpoint, one of the largest shopping centers (aside from Chadstone) in my area has since opened a brand new floor of 80+ shops, most of which are fashion related! Think David Jones, Chanel and even a TopShop! I've been eying off TopShop goodies for so long now, and now that they are so close, I can't have them!

How I'm Resisting:

Fussy Pants

I have to say that since my spending ban started, I've grown far more fussy in what I actually want to buy! Things that were on my wishlist earlier have since disappeared from my mind, and I really don't care about them anymore! Even whilst putting through my dummy request on Sephora, I was so picky with what I actually wanted! "Do I really need this?" "Will I really use this?" were questions I asked myself the entire time, which I think is something fantastic I've learnt through this experience!

Salon Melbourne


The weekend after my spending ban end, I'm heading to Salon Melbourne! I managed to score a ticket, and I know a lot of wonderful brands will be there! I'm heading there with a few other blogger friends, so I know I'll want to spend up big! So, it's nice to know that this date falls after the spending ban ends, it gives me a shopping trip with the girls to look forward to!


-- 

So close, so very close! I'm thrilled I've made it this far, and I have to say I'm proud of myself! I wasn't sure if I'd actually make it, or if I'd trip up and end up buying things that were "on sale" like last time! I was able to resist sales and new product launches! I've also shopped my stash a little more, which is good, and have found some lovely products I've either never tried, or haven't used for ages!

Are you on a spending ban at the moment? How are you doing? If not, do you think you would consider a spending ban?

  1. Wow! Great to hear you've made it so far! It must've been so difficult though!! As you haven't purchased anything new, I bet there would be tonnes to shop for!
    Right now, I actually need to consider a spending ban myself! Just cause I need to save up some cash as I always spend my payments on clothes etc, which leaves me moneyless. xD

    1. Thank you! There is definitely a lot I plan on buying after the ban is done haha!
      Trust me I know the feeling, that's the main reason I went on the ban! I was just wasting my money on little things instead of saving for stuff I really need! It works well though, since the ban I've managed to save up for a new camera, and a new laptop! :D

  3. Well done!! That is something to be proud of! I've been really fussy with what I'm buying too, I've moved into an apartment and don't have heaps of space for stuff I'm not too sure about, so it's a great way of saving money! xx

    1. Aw thank you!
      Ohh that certainly makes it easier when you're in the store thinking "hmm should I buy it?" you can always think that you have no space, so you can't buy it! Me on the other hand, I have a three bedroom place, and I only live with my partner so I have TOO much space lol!
