Soo it’s not okay that my budget is already over, but I have finally reached the point where I seriously need a detox.
Shopping bans have become quite popular since last year when Cait from Blonde on a Budget started her year long one, which she recently completed and (spoiler) decided to continue for another year. Then Bridget from Money after Graduation recently started a 90 day one. The timing seemed right for me to start since the past couple months have been absolutely insane for spending frivolously.
Of course I decided this after I blew some money at Artizia…..
Better late than never, right?
I started on July 9th and am on day 12! Woot.
– no make up- NOTHING, I have SO much already that I probably will never run out. I wish I was joking…
– no hair products.
– no clothes- I just re-found a mountain- not a pile- of clothes from when I moved in my basemetn that I never unpacked. so I’m GOOD in that department too.
– no shoes- I have enough.
– no nothing- NO MORE STUFF! Gifts for others are okay, or anything I deem slightly necessary (read: kiddie pool) otherwise no other stuff.
I may need to redo the rules after the first month to be more specific, depending on how the first month goes.
Additionally, I have also started to declutter and purge. I have SO much stuff! And I finally can’t take it anymore. I have gotten rid of 3 bags of clothes so far; make up is next.
I have come to realize I have SO much unnecessary stuff just cluttering up my life that I just can’t stand it anymore.
It’s time I really focus on simplifying my life and giving everything in it a purpose and meaning.
Do you have any tips for me? Have you ever done a no spend?
