Spending Ban Update - Week 2 & 3

Hi lovelies, hope you're all well. I don't really want to bore you too much with these spending ban updates because hopefully there won't be too much on here that I have ended up buying!

I can honestly say that I've been really good these last two weeks. I haven't bought anything unecessary. The only things I have bought are some make up remover pads (as my previous lot ran out) some deoderant (definitely an essential) and some new trainers (okay...I know what you're thinking...) I see trainers as a necessity as I walk to and from work every day. My last pair lasted a very long time but it got to the point where when it rained, water was leaking into the inside making my feet completely soaked - that combined with smelly feet did not make a good combination! I managed to pick up a cheap pair of Nike trainers from my local Sports Direct shop for £22.99.

Hubby has been really supportive (I think its because I've not been dragging him to the shops!) and even bought me four new nail varnishes! Don't start thinking aww just yet as there was an ulterior motive (although i'm not complaining!) we have tickets to Wembley in September to see an American Football match and the colours he bought me are the team we are going to be supporting. He wants me to paint my nails in the design of their team logo - we'll see how that works out!

Sainsburys Double Faced Cotton Pads £1.85//Sainsbury's deoderant 95p//Nail Varnishes £0 (thanks to hubby)//Nike Trainers £22.99

So my total spend for weeks two and three came to a grand total of £0!

What do you think to my progress so far?


  1. I so could not do a spending ban, I would get actual withdrawal symptoms! Well done you x
