 The summer holidays for us have definitely been expensive!. We have had the best time though and the girls have said it’s been perfect !.

Lots of days out and weeks away. It has been lovely and we have almost completed our whole summer bucket list! :) but it has definitely been pricey so I have decided to do a no spend September.

Now I know we all need to spend and we have bills and food to buy throughout the month , these are essentials and our obvious outgoings.

When I say no spend , I basically mean no Starbucks if I am honest , ha!.

Some weeks I could go end up in Starbucks at least three times and we all know , it’s not cheap, so I’ve made a vow to spend no money on things that don’t matter during the month.

I tried this a few years ago and I failed on the 5th day, so I do find not buying bits when I want a struggle as I am definitely an impulse buyer . Buy and then worry about the money later kind of girl.

So I am going to give it a go and see how far in the month I can go. I’ve got some vouchers and a cinema day out voucher so I’m hoping they’ll keep us going and we can still have a good month and save some pennies along the way.

Are you joining in on a no spend September ? 


  1. I'm an impulse buyer as well something I'm trying to stop but honestly I'm not good at stopping it - good luck with no spend September that is a huge thing to try and do!

  2. I love this idea. Going to do it for October now as I have already spent in September.

  3. Aw! This is a great thing to try. I need to test out a month like this!
