100 Day Spending Ban

A while ago there was a big buzz around the blogging community about a 100 day spending ban, I thought it would be pretty useless starting it before Christmas as obviously I needed to buy presents so I have decided to wait until the new year to start it and do it as part of my New Year's resolutions.

 The 100 day spending ban in case you haven't heard of it is where you don't buy yourself any none essentials for 100 days the only things you are allowed to buy is necessities.

My rules
 * The spending ban will run for 100 days starting from January 1st
* I will not be spending any money on make up, toiletries or any other beauty items or clothing unless they are necessities but I will need to buy a few items of  clothing suitable for work at the end of January.
*Magazines are also included in the spending ban.
*Thomas is also included in this I can't buy him any clothing or toys as after Christmas he certainly doesn't need them.
*I have a £25 gift voucher from my nan for Christmas which is not to be spent until the spending ban is over, this way I will think about what I actually want and not just waste it on rubbish.

My goal is for this to be the kick up the bum I need to start saving money towards a new settee and Ipad. Plus hopefully it will make me realise that I don't need to buy all of the rubbish I do.

Will you be joining in? Simply post a blog post like this on your blog and share what you are banning yourself from buying and what your rules are and then link me up to it. I will also be doing honest weekly updates to share my progress. 


  1. I found it! Gosh this sounds so hard!! I look forward to seeing how you get on... I am not sure I could do it.. I "think" I could start it but to complete it would be very hard and I would give in! No will power me!

  2. I think it is going to be hard but im hoping the thought of saving money towards an Ipad will spurr me on x

  3. Thats definitely a good spur on!

  4. I've decided to have a go at this too - I really need to!
    My post about it is here if you're interested! :)

  5. I'm also doing the ban.
    Good luck!
