100 Day No Spend Challenge

Having seen this floating around on Twitter via Rachel The Hat I've decided to give it a go myself.

This goes live from tomorrow (5th January) and the challenge basically involves not buying clothes for 100 days, which is going to be incredibly difficult for a shopaholic like me. I tried something similar a few years ago, failed spectacularly and never lived it down. I currently own in excess of 200 pairs of shoes (and wear about 5 regularly...) and have 3 wardrobes full of clothes (not to mention the various storage boxes and carrier bags hidden elsewhere in the house.) Shameful!

So in my last post I pledged to try and be more careful with money and stop frittering small amounts away, so I guess I'm now plunging myself right in at the deep end! To make it a bit more juicy I'm going to reward myself with £1 a day in an attempt to inspire myself to keep at it!

Wish me luck!! 


  1. Wow good luck! I don't think I could do this, I mean maybe, but especially not now, before I move into my new house and go on a winter vacation, I need to buy things!

    1. I have a disgusting amount! Haha, like 2 wardrobes full! I'm currently sorting them out to sell a few!

  2. I have a feeling ive been overly ambitious, but I'm going to give it my best shot, even if I don't last the whole 100 days!

    1. Oh my goodness I reread this post and can't believe you have so many pairs of shoes! Maybe you should sell some! haha
