60 Day Challenge!

I have taken inspiration from a couple of my favorite bloggers and have challenged myself to a 60 day spending ban over this supposed summer I started on Monday 2nd July and follow though July and Finish 30th August in time for Autumn. In recent weeks my spending has gotton a little out of control and I really need to put a temporary stop to it. 
The Rules
I CAN'T spend money on.

  1. Clothes
  2. Shoes
  3. Accessories
  4. Make-up
  5. Nail Varnish (my biggest weakness ATM)
  6. Bags
  7. Music/DVDs/Books/Apps
  8. Skin Care/ Hair Care until what I have has gone
  9. Unnecessary Food eg sweets, chocolates, take away (good for the old Diet)
What I CAN spend money on

  1. Presents for Birthdays etc
  2. Nights out with friends but on a budget
  3. Day trips including Travel/Tickets/Food while out (keeping to can't rule 9)
  4. Essentials like Food/Petrol/Bills
  5. Magazines I have to have that little treat (although the temptation of the goodies inside may be too much to take!!)
  6. Essential Home Furnishings (i'm in the process of decorating a couple of rooms)
I'm not sure how do-able this will be for me but I shall try my very best and I will be sure to confess to any slip ups. Inspiration came from the lovely ladies here and here.

Please tweet or comment below to let me know if I have inspired you to do the same and feel free to use the graphic above ( please link this post or blog with it) Have fun!
