Goodbye June - Trimming My Stash and Spending Diet Update

Well there we go, the first month of my self set challenge has gone already so it's time to look at how I've done.

First of all my spending diet - this month I have purchased the following treats for myself

Beauty UK Eyeshadow Palette No. 2 - ebay - £3.79
MAC P&P - £2.95
MAC E/S Tempting (Style Warriors) - £9.79
MAC Brave New Bronze Lipstick (Style Warriors) - £11.26
Red Magazine £2.00 (Special Offer in Tesco)
June Total £29.79

So huge thumbs up - I've managed to stick to my £30 budget this month with 21p to carry over to next month - I swear I have bought nothing else but I have to admit though my family have been particularly generous buying me bits and pieces but that's my family dynamics and that isn't likely to change. I must admit it has been tough I have done some serious online drooling but the fact that I haven't managed to go out properly myself probably means it was slightly easier to stick to it. This month may be a little harder especially with my proposed shopping trip tomorrow but I am getting a little bit of funding so I just have to set myself a limit of how much I can feasibly afford to spend bearing in mind I will still have nearly 4 weeks of the month to go- hmm some careful thought needed me thinks. Anyways I have already spent £1.50 of it but I haven't counted it yet because it hasn't came yet ;) - I took advantage of an ELF free delivery code last week to order 1 thing - so here's hopin that it comes soon and that can be my first July purchase :)

Right Trimming My Stash - I think I have done really well on this, this month I have finished 17 items - impressive huh - here is my final list for June -

Bath Bubble and Beyond Dewberry Bath Salts
AVON Naturals Plum and Nectarine Shower Gel
AVON Skin So Soft Targeted Firming Treatment
Rescue Oil
The Body Shop Ginger Body Scrub
Johnsons 24 Hour Moisture Extra-Rich Bodywash
Boots Botanics Eye Make Up Remover
Lush Yummy Yummy Yummy Shower Cream
Herbal Essences Fruit Fusions Citrus Scent Shampoo
Mark Hill Ultimate Gloss Mist
Aquolina Peach and Apricot Body Milk <3
Segreti Mediterranei Elasticizing Dry Body Oil Spray
Clarins Radiance Plus Self Tannning Cream Gel (Face)
Soap & Glory Endless Glove Hand Mask
Laura Geller Black Mascara
Pro Strong Pro Advanced Fluoride Nail Strengthener
AVON Footworks Winter Spice Moisturising Cream

I am a bit disappointed that I only managed one make up item but I have another that isn't far off so it isn't so bad- I am concentrating first on all the half finished bottles of product that I've opened and then moved on to something else without finishing - I have loads of these I think this is one of my bad habits -note to self finish one bottle before moving onto the next.

Anyways all in all I am pretty pleased with how the month has gone - I'll update my sidebar -> with my monthly totals, and with my new purchases and trims as the month goes on - don't forget to keep checking my progress your support is pushing me on - thanks peeps xx

(P.S. You may think this is an odd time to be blogging (half past midnight)but it is so sticky and humid tonight I think sleep is going to be nigh on impossible - I'm English I don't do heat! - Oh also nearly forgot if you have any questions on anything I've used up or bought don't hesitate to ask x)
