Say Goo'bye to Shopping - 100 Day Challenge

It was bound to happen everyone. I've seen a few bloggers who are beginning or in the middle of their 100 Day No Spending Challenge. The gif above is the only way to describe how I'm feeling. It's accurate and very funny! Why am I doing this? I have a shopping problem. I know people say they've got a shopping problem and no one seems to think it's real. I always have a compulsive need to buy something when I'm super happy or super sad. A lot of my friends think I can help it but I can't. Since no one will help me I figured it's time to help myself. 

Each blogger has his or her own set of rules and here are mine:
  1. No more cosmetic products. 
  2. No more beauty products.
  3. No more bath and body products. Unless I run out of all my soap (Seems unlikely at this point) Then I may buy one but only one!
  4. Absolutely no clothes shopping. In stores and especially online. The only exception to this is if my mom takes me shopping and kindly decides to buy me a new sweater.
  5. I can only buy metros, dinner if there shan't be any at home, skincare replacements, hair care replacements and any emergency expenses.
5 simple rules that will probably make me cry at some point in time. I really need to do this, not just want to. The way I spend money is ridiculous. A month's worth of pay is not enough for me which is sad cause I have no bills to pay. Tell me that not cuckoo bananas? I know. I'm hoping to save up to be able to take a trip to London. That shall be my gift if I can muster up the funds. I think that's worth way more than a new lip gloss or nail polish.

I'll create a tab so you guys can keep track along with me. I'll be updating my progress weekly :) If any of you are doing or are going to do this challenge let me know below! We'll be able to motivate each other and make it to the 100 Day Mark together!

This challenge starts Tuesday, July 24th and will end Thursday, November 1st. Wish me luck everyone. The Shopping Lord knows I'm going to need it.



  1. Good luck :)! I wouldn't be able to do this haha! xx


  2. Good luck.I could never ever do this, it would be so difficult! It doesn't sound that long until you wrote the end date!


    1. Really? I had to count it out because I felt like I wouldn't be able to shop till 2013! I'l finish just in time to blow all that money on gifts and Peppermint Mocha Coffee :) xx

    2. Yay! I'm so super excited for Christmas to go present shopping and get peppermint hot chocolate and toffee nut latte :) xx

    3. I think we're the only two who are excited for Christmas and it's only July! It shall be fun :)

  3. Oh my god! I could not do this, i hope to see you spending xmas on london! hehe
    I think it will be totally worth it! Plus, you could spend that money on something else, or save it.
