90 Day Spending Ban – Update #5

Today is day 77 of the 90 Day Spending Ban, I can’t believe the end is so close! I have just one simple rule, I cannot buy something new if I have that type of product already in my stash. You can read Update #1 here, Update #2 here, Update #3 here and Update #4 here.

I’ve got through quite a lot in the last few weeks. Shampoo, conditioner, hand wash, concealer, mascara, body butter, body scrub and hand cream.

From my stash I picked out a Lush Candy Cane Soap (from a Christmas gift set), YSL Touche Eclat, YSL Shocking Mascara, L’Occitane Verbena Body Lotion (from a gift set I got after having my baby), Lush Sandy Santa Sugar Scrub (also from a Christmas gift set) and Taaj Creme Mains Delhicates Hand Cream (I got this in the January Birchbox).

I had no shampoo or conditioner left in my stash so picked up some from the Naked Smooth range, and luckily for me my other half paid for them so I didn’t break my spending ban! Well, not for those anyway. I haven’t painted my nails since my baby arrived in November (!) as I know they wouldn’t get time to dry before I need to change a nappy. So I treated myself to a bottle of Seche Vite. I did use my Boots Advantage Card points though! Even with this little spend I have saved £50.25 this update; the total saved so far is £225.63!

Let me know how your spending bans are going!

  5. Wow that's amazing, I wouldn't be able to do a spending ban as I would be so tempted to buy stuff when there is a sale! I really should do one though :) It feels so good to use up products though!
