I have now completed week 1, and it was a little harder than expected because I went to Doncaster. I had previously set aside some money for spending in Doncaster, and so I allowed myself to still spend it because it wasn't coming from a wage in the New Year.
I did spend my money wisely and bought clothing for work, which is something I was allowing myself to purchase throughout the challenge. Unfortunately I did buy a few pieces of make up which I weren't allowed to buy and I spent £12.98
This first week of the challenge was as difficult as I expected, but I will need to make a point of avoiding the shops so that I'm not tempted to spend. I also need to learn to avoid spending online, and so I'll be taking my tablet to work so that I can read.
