Big shocker, thanks to the strong AUD, I’ve been shopping, shopping, shopping and have completely blown my budget for October. The pocket screamed for mercy, the credit card companies rejoiced in the extensive use of the card. That’s it, no more.
I hereby declare November to be a “NO SHOPPING MONTH“.
It shouldn’t be too difficult, I hope *gulp*. I’ve done “no shopping” months before and I survived. This should be no different. Sure there’s the Sephora sale, Saks Fifth Avenue sale … STOP.
Deep breaths, Tine. Deep breaths, and close down damn webpages.
So for November, the only item I’m allowed to buy that’s even remotely beauty-related is toothpaste, if I run out of any. No sneaky purchases from Coles or Woolies. I mean, a magazine or two is considered groceries, right? NO.
No books, no beauty products, no clothes, no accessories, no gadgets of any kind, no beauty treatments (well, this one’s a doozy, since I’ve already prepaid for some via Jump On It, Spreets, etc :P)
No shopping online for anything. So even if I see any good books on Book Depository, or Borders screaming 40% discount, these would be considered taboo.
Sales? I shall be blind and deaf to that word.
Let’s see how I fare after a month, shall we?
*fingers tightly crossed*
