Remember last year I was on a spending ban?
I am thinking about repeating it.
I've done pretty well with saving money recently but I have managed to also buy quite a few things. I've gotten back into my old habits of popping out at lunchtime and buying a few things.... Just small trifles, but they do add up. Substantially.
There's not a lot I really need. A couple of knits for winter, maybe a pair of ankle boots and that's pretty much it. I finish up work in a little over three weeks so I won't really need a lot of work style clothes. I can probably make do with what's currently in my wardrobe... ooooh, for a few decades.
So here's the plan. I'm going to make a list of the things I rationally need and how much I am prepared to pay for them and limit myself to just those things. I am allowing myself one Kindle book a week and my usual manicures et al. And that's it.
The plan is to see how long I can make it. I am currently aiming for the beginning of May. Three months, 12 weeks. Last time I almost made it to a month with no purchases.
And if I do last without too many transgressions I'll buy myself the Alexis Bittar necklace I have been lusting over. That's a nice reward I think.
