Well, I randomly decided to do a no buy month this month. I’ve never done one of these before and I’m pretty sure it’s going to be really, really hard, but it’s for a good cause: this summer my best friend and I are going to Poland. The main thing were going to do their is shop, so I definitely want to save up for that. I’m a terrible saver and I’m an extreme shopping addict, so this might be the way to go. If you’re interested in reading more about how I’m going to do this and what the exceptions are, make sure you keep on reading!
This no-buy month started on the 23th of March and ends the 23 of April. I decided to start on the 23th because that’s the day I get my pay check. That way it’ll be more effective.
What can’t I buy?
Basically everything. No makeup, no other beauty products, no clothing, no home decor, no accessories, no Ebay stuff and no extra snacks or food that isn’t necessary.
What can I buy?
I can only buy essential things. Because I live with my mom, I don’t have to do groceries or whatever. But if I have to, I can only buy the essential things. I do allow myself to buy food if I forget to bring something and I’m starving or an occasional visit to Macdonalds with my friends, but not too often. Only if there’s a good reason or it. Aside from that, nothing will be bought.
And that’s basically it. It’s quite strickt and I think it’s going to be real hard, but if I make it through this month I can be very proud of myself and I’ll be able to buy a few more lipsticks in Poland, so it’s worth it!
