Spending Ban Update // Finished!!

Its finally over. 

On January 3rd I said I would do the 100 Day Spending Ban. Technically my spending ban lasted 85 days I think as I went shopping the other day but I knew I was going to end it early! 

I thought I'd review how I did during the ban, the ups and the downs!

I've roughly worked out how much I spent on banned items during the Spending Ban and its not as bad as others but still, I gave myself a slap on the wrist for breaking it, twice...

I spent just under £35 on banned items over the course of 85 days. That's pretty damn good I think, considering I know how much money I had to spend during those 86 days. 

I've saved about half of the money I didn't spend and with the rest I treated myself: Haul #1, Haul #2 and Haul #3!

I honestly didn't think I'd last until the end of January, let alone the end of March! I may have broken my ban and ended it early but I'm super proud of what I've achieved and now I have some money saved away which I think I'm going to save for when I go into hospital, I'll probably buy lots of films and songs on itunes to watch!

I'm glad to see the back of my ban but I'm also very proud of how well I've done!

Would you survive the 100 Day Spending Ban?
