Another week is down and I've still not bought anything from my banned list, hooray!
I have to admit that Week 3 has been harder to manage than the previous two weeks. The main reason is because I got paid last Friday which usually results in a couple of completely unnecessary 'treats' being bought.
But no, I didn't give in to the lure of the shops, as much as I wanted to! Winning a lovely blog giveaway last week certainly helped though!
Instead, I've paid off all of my outstanding bills that have recently come in (including a higher than expected gas bill - thanks winter), and for the first time in months I didn't need to pay them with my overdraft or credit card limit.
The main thing I've learnt so far is that I never realised how all of the 'little' things can really add up. A £3 morning takeaway coffee and a £3 sandwich meal deal for lunch every day works out at £30 per working week. Add to that a couple of beauty treats, magazines and newspapers and it can go upwards of £50 per week.
That's a lot of money to be spending on stuff you don't really need isn't it?
