No Spend January

It has been brought to my attention that I have a problem. A shopping problem. See, I used to give myself a high five for not being one of the girls who trawled the high streets for a bargain but as my mate pointed the following out I  knew I was guilty

1.       I hide my purchases from my husband( collect + allows me to pick up packages anywhere and he would think I have had it for a long time :D)

2.       I know the long number of my credit and debit cards, the expiry dates and all the security dates off the top of my head(Iโ€™m smart like that)

3.       The fact that I can place things in my basket and check out in less than 5 minutes is not a skill set worthy of my warped frugality

4.       Would I buy it if it wasn’t on sale?

5.       I like spending my lunch breaks checking out make-up stalls

6.       And most importantly, online shopping is the same as walking out the door, money will leave my account(minus the getting wet, plus sipping on hot chocolate:D)

So after taking a mental inventory and realising I have enough makeup removers, moisturisers, and conditioners to last me till April, I am on a spending ban till the end of January. My excuse was blogging material but hey letโ€™s see how this goes, before I go red at the beginning of the year

Wish me luck

Until later,

Lots of love
