Spending Ban

So following my spectacular Stateside holiday and with moving in day with the Monsieur imminent, I am now on a strict, enforced spending ban.

I will most definitely, almost certainly NOT be buying any of these *strokes computer screen and sits on debit card*:


* Ideas Notebook by Sparrow Nest Script on Etsy.

Yes it's going to be tough but I have to do this. I need to make the most of the things I already own and stop lusting after the things I don't.

I'm quite looking forward to not endlessly trailing the new in sections of my bookmarked online stores and instead spending my time doing things that actually need doing, like sorting out my bursting wardrobe for one.

It's time for me to start appreciating the little (and free) things in life more and stop being so materialistic...I say this but you will probably find me a week from now standing in H&M stroking dresses while staring wistfully into space.

If any of you have any tips to help me achieve this spending ban (and prevent dress stroking) then please do comment below... I'm going to need all the help I can get!

  1. If you get any good tips please let me know, I also need to start saving up for moving in with the boyfriend..
    I love that notebook though!


  2. That notebook is lovely! As with everything else!

  4. I'm also trying a spending ban at the moment. In the past I've found that unsubscribing from emails from shops is helpful so I don't get tempted by their offers (It may be 10% off but it's still 90% on!).

    Good luck!


  5. GOOD luck to you! I'm eyeing up the cardigan!x

  6. Oh that dress is lovely! Good luck, you can do it - moving in will be worth it =)

  7. Lovely picks! Good luck ;) xxx

  8. LOVE the silk cami and the ideas notebook... want want want! :) xoxo

  9. The best tip is just to not go into any shops or shopping areas. Just take yourself out of any tempting situations;)

  10. Good luck! Gorgeous items by the way. :)

  11. ahhh I definitely need a spending ban too! I should start selling clothes not keep buying more haha! the blue dress is so gorgeous, tad too tempting ;) x

  12. Great picks. Definitely make use of the clothing you own by switching it up.. Such as, going through the clothing you have changing your style. Mix and matching different pieces creates a whole new look. After a while you should look forward to the clothing you already own. :) Hope this helps a little. Good luck!
