#NoSpendJuly and bonus #NoSpendAugust

Hi guys! July is almost over and that means that my spending ban is over too, right? Not quite. I’ve been thinking for the last week or so and I decided that since my trip to Canada is so close (almost a month, you guys!!), I would extend my spending ban through August so I can save up for Canada.

I’ve been good so far and I haven’t even had to restock on anything yet, but I definitely will need some shampoo and conditioner soon. Those are obviously the exception to my spending ban; anything I run out of and will need to restock that is considered an essential. The only thing I’m in danger of running out, other than shampoo and conditioner, is a moisturizer with SPF that I can use on a daily basis.

The way I see it, the better I am at not spending any extra money on makeup and skincare products before I go to Canada, the more money I have to spend while in Canada! Including goodies from Canadian beauty brands, thanks to the lovely Stashie who wrote up a very informational email to tell me all about the different brands I can find while I’m in Montreal.

If I went a whole month without spending money on makeup, I can do it again. Right? Right.

Maybe I’ll do this more often in the future, as well. Who knows? Maybe I’m better at saving money than I gave myself credit for.

  2. Yes you CAN! :) I’m telling you, it does get easier, and if you have a goal to focus on (Canadian spending spree!) it will make it more meaningful! AND, maybe this will help you – the USD is very strong against the Canadian dollar now so if you hold off, your money will go further come September! :D
