spending ban update #1

hello there!

as i am currently ill, bedridden, and off school, and can't muster up the energy to even stand up and take some blog pictures i thought i would do a nice easy post and update you all on how my spending ban has been coming along.

i'm now 23 days in, and can honestly say the only money to have left my purse is one pound for something at school, which wasn't optional and is therefore justified! i haven't actually been to tempted at all to buy things yet, although i think the hardest bit is always when the spring beauty and fashion collections come out, which they are just starting to. however, although i started my spending ban on the first of january (post here) the only money i've spent since september has been christmas presents, which is technically over 100 days and pretty damn impressive. but i am going to do 100 days from the first, and maybe even carry it on...

in order to keep myself motivated i have spent quite a while deciding what i'm going to buy once i've saved up and i think i've decided on the camera i want, which is very exciting!

as before, if any of you are currently doing this spending ban or are thinking of starting one please leave your links below, as the positive comments i got on the blog post introducing it (and tweets) have really helped in motivating and i would love to do the same thing back!

bye!
