Paychecks would have arrived or arrive today for most of us.. and yeah… budgeting for March would be the top thing on our minds now…
Well, I am not gonna talk about my family monthly budget here & bore you to the core.
Does budget ring a bell? Money!!
It did ring something else as well in my mind…. 😛
I did share my Mar’13 wishlist today & I know most of you would be surprised by it…
There was not a single product that I would like to purchase in the coming month of March.
And its true…
I have been contemplating a shopping ban since December… some of you might know that…
But finally the day has arrived for me to take the plunge…
Yes! This time I am serious about it..
I AM GOING ON A SHOPPING BAN WHOLE OF MARCH’13. (Was I too loud??)
31 days of ‘NO’ silly, mindless, crazy, impulsive, emotional, stress-busting, just-like-tat, ‘Oh-I love it!’ purchases… (did I include every adjective applicable??)
At the back of this – “Why didn’t I chose February? I would have got 2 days less” 😀 😛
By shopping ban, I mean – cosmetics, personal care products, makeup, jewellery, clothes, accessories, footwear, kitchenware, et al.
Only shopping I am planning to do this month is – for groceries & vegetables! 🙂
Why this? Why me?
These are the questions that motivated (rather pushed) me to take this decision.
Since the last 3 months, I admit I have been shopping like some crazy idiot… Thanks to End of Season sale everywhere!
I can clearly see that my financial resources are fast depleting than the natural resources of the country. (satire baby!)
Well.. All I am wishing is that I don’t need to ask for financial help from hubby or parents to clear off my bills 😀
Even my watchman seems to be tired of receiving couriers for me 🙁 😛
I have been a self-dependent person so far & would love to continue so…
This decision comes right in time (before hubby imposed one on me 😀 )…
1 month – 31 days to start with…
I am sure that I am stocked up for the next 2 months easily (maybe more!) & can handle ban for a month effortlessly.. (effortless? hmm..let’s see…)
I am posting about this here.. to receive motivation from you all…and also that I cannot cheat.
I shall be posting daily statuses of ‘How the day went without any shopping – online/offline?’ or ‘How I managed to ignore the urge?’ & lots more..
So stay tuned to our Facebook page (link available in the right side of the blog) for more updates on this self-imposed ban!!
Help me make this ‘BAN’ a ‘BANG’ on!! 🙂
Okay… have your ever contemplated or been on a self-imposed ban? How did you sail through it?
Any thoughts on this is welcome… Pour your comments everyone! 🙂
C’ya soon…. <3
