90 Spending Ban – Update #2

So I’ve now been on my spending ban for 14 days in total and still haven’t bought any make-up, hair or beauty products. In fact in the last 7 days I’ve not bought anything at all despite using up a couple of products! As per the simple rule I set myself, I cannot buy something new if I have that type of product already in my stash. You can read Update #1 here.

My first Birchbox beauty box (which replaced Joliebox and is something I am allowing myself during the spending ban) arrived last week and certainly helped curb the shopping crave. In the last 7 days I have finished off a shampoo and a moisturiser. In my cupboards I had a half-full bottle of Organic Care Systems Aqua Boost Shampoo and a brand new tube of Yon-Ka Pamplemousse Protective and Vitalizing Face Cream so by using those I have saved a huge £39.75 this week, bringing the total saved so far to £75.98! I also got a voucher through the post for a free Starbucks coffee which I enjoyed yesterday – win!

I hope you’re doing well on your spending ban if you’re doing one.

  2. Love these posts! I have failed miserably but have achieved a little by buying cheaper brands instead of high end. It's going to have to stop at some point though ;) xx

  9. I'm on a makeup ban for the whole year! I'm doing this thing where I can only buy one new blush, lipstick and eyeshadow for this year. But if I happen to use a product all up I can replace it with a new type of product. It's a pretty good idea, and so far I'm going really strong! I'm having so much fun shopping my stash and finding new looks with stuff I own!

    1. I'm probably going to continue it after the ban, only buying something if I've run out. I'm not sure how good I would be with make-up though! xx
