I'd been toying with the idea of challenging myself to a spending ban this month and when I saw Miss Budget Beauty publish her #nobuyjuly spending ban post, I decided to get in on the action!
I feel like I've been quite frivolous with my spending recently and so I thought I would test my willpower and challenge myself not to make any unnecessary purchases (clothing, beauty products) this month.
We are on day four of the month and so far so good! That's not to say I haven't wanted to buy things, but I've stuck to my guns and haven't clicked "checkout"!
Using the hashtag #nobuyjuly, along with Miss Budget Beauty and others wishing to take part, I will be posting links via Twitter to items I'd really like to buy this month and then at the end of the month, I will do a round-up of the prices for each item and see how much I have saved by not purchasing them!
Let me know if you will be taking part in this challenge! Follow me on Twitter @MrsEEverleigh to see what I'm lusting over!
