Spending Ban Summary #1

After telling you about my spending ban here, I thought it would be a good idea to share with you how well I have (or haven't) been doing. It's only been a week, and you might think that maybe this would be the easiest week, but alas, it has been a bit of a struggle. 

One of the main things I wanted to curb my spending on, was food whilst out for uni. Sadly, I only remembered to bring a little lunch on one day - and as it turn's out, I didn't bring enough! - so I have had to dip into my purse and buy a few things to nibble. I also been quite stressed out lately due to uni deadlines and the like, so I have made a few unnecessary purchases of mini eggs and the like. 

I've been quite unorganised and haven't kept any receipts, but as of tomorrow I shall do that and I can get all scientific on you with a graph and percentages* which is totally impressive. 

Things to improve on for next week
Bring a decent lunch!
Stop buying chocolate to cheer yourself up
You don't need to buy hot drinks because everyone else is.

So, that's it for my first update. Seven days down, 93 to go!

*definitely not going to be producing any graphs, haha!


  1. Remembering to make lunch is so hard! This is why I know i'd fail, I always forget to make lunch and then when I do remember to make it I forget to take it with me! What a pain in the ass!x

    1. I reckon I need a cute lunchbox but sadly that won't be bought until after the spending ban, probably x


I love hearing your comments, but if you've got a questions you could always ask me on twitter for a speedier response - @Chelsealiml
