100 Day Spending Ban

Hello, I'm A Secret of Beauty and I have a spending problem

If you've been floating around the blogging world since the start of the year, you would have seen at least one blogger swear to padlocking their pennies away and chopping up their credit card. For some reason everyone that I know seem to have their birthday in January I decided to start a little later with my ban. From 1st February 2013 running for 100 days I pledge to curb my spending habits.

2. No Clothes, Shoes, Bags, Jewellery or accessories
3. No Candles or other home products
4.. No unnecessary food (you only need one chocolate bar, not the whole shelf)

5. I am allowed to buy presents and cards for others
6. Maximum eating out/takeaway once a week
7. Only after I have used all my Glossydots will I be able to order Glossybox
8. Go out, get drunk and have a good time, but do it with the least amount of money

9. If there are things that I need I must write a list, go through it and honestly make a decision on whether it is a 'need' or want. Under no circumstances shall I impulse buy.

I think I have enough products to last me the course so even though other people are allowing themselves 'essentials' I think the 5 cans of deodorant, 3 bottles of shampoo and god knows how many cotton pads in my drawer will last me. I really want to be as tight with my money as possible over the next 100 days.
If anyone has any tips or tricks please let me know because I think this is going to be really hard.
