I’m going to attempt a no spend month

Well, I’m very excited, as I’m going to attempt a month without spending!

This means no treats, no luxury food, no clothes, no frippery. I’ll be living off of what I have and only buying what I need.

What I can buy:

  • Basic food – bread, vegetables, pasta, cheese, meats etc
  • Toothpaste
  • Laundry detergent
  • Dishwasher tablets
  • Soap
  • Dog food
  • Petrol

What I can’t buy:

  • Alcoholic drinks
  • Luxury versions of food
  • Take-aways
  • Clothes
  • Meals out
  • Toiletries other than soap
  • Candles or air fresheners
  • Make-up
  • Treats

This plan is inspired by And Then We Saved. Anna did this for an entire year! If I feel like I can do the same then I’ll extend it, which will be brilliant! The month starts in June so between now and then I’ll slow down my spending gradually.

I’ll be documenting the month as much as possible.
