Things were going great with my financial overhaul for the first couple of months, but I typically dropped the ball before long. I went on holiday, which proved more expensive than expected seeing as I had a night in London on either side of the trip to Morocco. I didn’t go too wild, but I definitely lost my grip a little. I don’t want to have to dip into the savings I have so preciously hoarded, so I’m drawing a line: No-Spend November.
I think November is a good time to reign in the spending so I don’t feel stretched or stressed out when December comes with all its necessary outgoings. So here are the rules:
I’m going to walk to university as much as I can. The saving is only £3.50 a day, but it adds up.
I’m not going to buy takeaway coffee when I’m on my own. Coffee dates with friends are fine, but solo sbux are unneccessary.
I won’t buy clothes or shoes. I just bought a bunch of stuff from ASOS, and I have new Huaraches and Vans, so this should be easy. I don’t even go into the shops that much any more.
These are fairly obvious tweaks, but I think these will be enough to get me back on track and reinvigorate my determination to save.
Born to be wild,
