Long story short (and if you’re a regular reader of my blog, you will already know this), I decided to give the 30 day no buy challenge a go and needless to say, I completely caved before the first week was even up! I’m not too fussed about not making the full 30 days, but I did manage to cut down on my spending which saved me a bit of money.
The rules of the challenge are to not buy anything for 30 days. Absolutely nothing! Unless it’s a necessity, of course. I didn’t think this would be difficult at first, but after about three days I found it really hard to stick to my guns!
I guess the aim of this challenge is to show that we don’t need to constantly spend our money, and if we only purchased the necessary things, we could actually save quite a lot! I managed to save a couple of hundred pounds by cutting down and I think that’s something I’m going to stick to!
Have you tried this challenge! Better yet, has anyone completed the challenge? I’d love to hear about it!
