90 Day Spending Ban – Update #3

28 days into my spending ban and I still haven’t bought any make-up, hair or beauty products. Go me! 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 and Update #2 here.

Since the last spending ban update I finished off a hand wash, a cleanser, a night serum & cream, a perfume and a shower gel.

I’ve dug into my stash and found a small bottle of Molton Brown Naran Ji hand wash that I got in a set for Christmas, a bottle of Kipos Cleansing Milk which came in an All About Beauty beauty box, a bottle of Antipodes Divine Face Oil (LOVE this stuff) which came in the Selfridges beauty box, a half-full bottle of YSL Safarienne that I bought last year and a bottle of Molton Brown Coco De Mer Shower Gel that I also got for Christmas.

By using all of these products from my stash instead of buying new products I’ve saved £63.33 (I conservatively guessed that the Kipos Cleansing Milk is worth about £5.00 as I actually have no idea how much it costs to buy) bringing the total saved so far to £139.31. Crazy!

I’m loving the spending ban as I’m finding lots of products that I had forgotten about. How are you getting on with your spending ban?

  2. I really should dig into my stash of products before rushing out and buying new ones as well. It's amazing how much you can save when you add it all up - it doesn't feel like you're spending that much at the time! x

  3. You are doing so well! I am doing okay too but not using up many products which is odd. I do find that I have so much more in my stash that I originally thought I had...which makes the ban easier! xx

  4. Keep it up!

    I got some hair dye... But I needed it and it wasn't superfluous but otherwise am doing ok with it. But it is cold so finding it so much easier bc I don't browse and just wanna get home!

  7. Its amazing that you worked out how much you have saved - £139, crazyness! I have also been delving into my stash trying to whittle it down, the most motivating thing is looking into my empties drawer and seeing all the products I have used up, it amazes me! I can't wait til the end of the challenge to see how many I got through and have my stash looking normal again! Keep up the good work, you are doing great!
