February Spending Ban

While other bloggers have been on a spending ban this month, I seem to have been doing the opposite and spending more than I normally do! Things I've bought this month include a Cath Kidston bag and purse, a BHS duvet set, a load of cosmetics from ELF, Look Beauty and MUA, and various things from Primark, Superdrug and Boots. Oh, and let's not forget an expensive camera. So, for the month of February, I will be on a spending ban. I'm up for the challenge. I don't know how well I'll cope though. I can go weeks without buying something, but that's on my own terms. I think it's going to be hard if there's something I really want. To stop temptation, I'm just not going to browse any online shops. However, I read a lot of blogs and follow a lot of bloggers on Twitter, so there's still going to be a lot of temptation, especially when someone posts a haul! 

I'll update you guys half way through February and then at the end of February.

It's not a final idea yet, but I'm thinking of doing a spending ban every other month. So, I can spend in March, but not in April, for example. We'll see! UPDATE: I'm now thinking once a week every month. I'll still be saving money, but it'll be easier to achieve!

Is anyone else currently on a spending ban, or planning to be on one?
