You may have seen on my Twitter, or you may not have, but for me, February is going to be my month of no spending!!! I really have absolutely no idea how this is going to go, but we will see. I guess I did pick the best month to do this, seeing as it is the shortest!
My reasons for deciding to do this were simple; I realised I was spending far too much money on things I didn’t need. Adverts placed all over Facebook and Instagram didn’t help either! They would alert me to the fact that there would be ‘70% off, ending Saturday!’ which wasn’t great, seeing as I didn’t need any encouraging!
I’m obviously going to still have to buy the usual stuff like house supplies, food etc. (I’m not turning this into a February fast as well!), but I mean things like, makeup and… well, makeup… It’s going to be tricky, I know!
I’ll let you know how it goes by the end of February and if I do last! I’m hoping to follow through and see how much I can save. I think I will feel a real sense of achievement if I do manage to stick to it. I’m going to give myself a little bit of flexibility for things like meeting up with friends. I don’t want to have to say no to a coffee for example, or not be able to get someone a gift, but I will class that as something essential, so won’t affect my month of no spending!
Have you ever thought of doing something like this? If so, have you actually succeeded!? I’d love to hear from you!
Until next time,
