The No Shopping Challenge

After debating whether I should hop on board and do a no shopping month this February, I finally decided I am going to do it!  I always have issues with spending my money and I really want to push myself to save more and spend less, especially since I am saving up for a new camera that I can take to college with me!  I also think it will help me learn to think before I buy (#impulsebuyer), which will make me less impulsive after the month of no shopping is over.

However, there are some exceptions, for me, for this month...

1. I can still buy Starbucks and some treats

2. I can browse, but not buy 

3. I can still go out

Are you thinking of joining the no shopping month?  I know Ashley is doing it too!


  1. No shopping for a month!! I can't imagine a worse torture!


  2. Good luck! I do no shopping stints every now and then and it is actually quite rewarding! Just be sure to not go crazy the day you're "allowed" to shop again - you want this to help your mindset, not be oppressive and something you need to break free from.
    I look forward to updates on your progress!

  3. I've been on a no shopping month (except for groeceries) so I can have spending money in New York in 3 weeks!!

  4. This is impressive! I go through no shopping phases (mostly after I go a little overboard on spending - haha!) I've been so bad the past month, especially since my birthday is coming up, and I feel like I MUST treat myself. Maybe I will do this for March. Please keep us updated & good luck!

    p.s. - I'm doing a giveaway on my blog... There's nothing wrong with winning freebies, right?

  7. Good luck to the two of you! I will be spending my Saturday at the outlets... so I'll have to let this challenge pass me by.

  8. wow, by mistake I have been going a month without shopping. Good luck!


  9. I need to do this. I'm so bad at saving!

  10. Good Luck! I may have to try something like this. I give you credit for sure!


  11. I'm on a shopping ban for the whole of Feb too! I'm allowing myself Starbucks too - you can't go cold turkey on everything all at once! It's nice to have someone else on a no spending kick at the same time as I am!
