Spending Ban - Things to Stop Buying

I bit the bullet and put myself on a spending ban! My shopping habit was getting out of control and as I result I was watching my personal savings dwindling down to nothing - so I decided to do something about it! 

I'm not sure how it happened but I slipped into the bad habit of online shopping. A clothes order here and a new pair of shoes there meant spending hundreds of dollars a week on unnecessary stuff! I had gotten so good at refining my wardrobe and cutting down what I owned all in the name of minimalism. Check out my minimalism series here.

Yet suddenly I was allowing myself way too many splurges and couldn't help but click on an ad whenever I saw a sale! It was getting pretty bad guys! I was no longer prioritising saving money toward my future and instead was filling my wardrobe with more items than I needed. So I am going to share the main things I recommend you stop buying if you are going on a spending ban!

Why Dead Skin Needs The Old Heave-Ho

The skincare industry is literally worth billions. There are hundreds of millions of women who want to solve their own skincare issues and so there are millions of different solutions. It's not just about business by the way, some people really do need specific treatments for their skin. Not everyone has the same kind of beautiful skin so this makes the challenge of making products and treatments even harder. Nowadays we are spoiled for choice because we have countless complex and exotic solutions. There are exotic plants from the rainforest that have a powerful cleaning affect that we can use. Maybe you want something that is going to give you a more even skin tone so you’ll use yogurt and honey as a way to do this. Sometimes the easiest solutions are right in front of you such as removing dead skin cells.
