This week was my first full week on the spending ban and to be honest I could have done better.
For me, I tend to spend quite a lot of money on impulse purchases throughout the week, especially on the way home from work. I didn’t spend any money on make-up or beauty items this week but I did buy some necessities that I had run out of. I spent £11 in Boots on hair dye, foot cream and cleanser – not too bad. I then bought a cardigan, some shoes and some leggings from Primark for £22. I also bought a Tshirt from the gig I went to last night, that cost £15 and I bought 3 drinks for £19.50 (oh my!). I bought a Moleskine diary for work too, I think it was £9.25 from Waterstones in the half price sale.
So, this week I have spent £76.75 on things that weren’t completely necessary. Must try better next week.
I have set a budget of £50 for the coming week and out of that I need to buy a weekly bus ticket and some food for my lunches at work. Wish me luck!
Do you tend to buy things without thinking?
