For those of you who don’t already know, I can’t resist a good bargain! Meaning sometimes I can spend a fair ain’t of my wages on things I don’t actually need. After doing some online research on money saving tips, I came across the 30 day no buy challenge. It sounds horrific and I’m definitely going to struggle but I feel it’ll be with it in the long run!
So you may be asking “Carrie, I’m extremely interested in the 30 day no buy challenge and would like to participate, please explain more?” And I will explain it to you. For 30 WHOLE days you can’t buy ANYTHING! Unless it’s a necessity. You want to make a budget for your rent, food costs, fuel, contracts, direct debits etc and put the rest away. So when that nice new lipstick finally goes on sale, you can’t even go there!
I think not only will this challenge be a massive pain in the ass, it’ll be kind of fun, so I’d definitely say I’m looking forward to it! You may think I’ve gone nuts but it’s more to prove to myself that I’m not a shopaholic (aren’t we all sometimes??!!).
If you’re interested in taking part in this challenge, let me know! Or if you’ve done something similar, I’d love to hear about it!
