Nearly November already!? I know right! This month has flown by so quickly I feel like it’s going to be Christmas next week and I’m still sat here wondering when summer ended. I thought about not posting my October Birchbox and waiting until November, but I’ve just managed to squeeze this one in, only 3 days before the end of the month!
This month Birchbox collaborated with Stylist Magazine to offer a selection of two different boxes; the Guest Editor Box and the Back to Basics Box.
We all have those things that we want to save for, whether it be a holiday, a new item of clothing or just saving for a rainy day. Some of us are lucky enough to have money left over at the end of each month, and some of us are always looking for ways to save a little extra.
I actually consider myself to be pretty good at saving when I want to, but I recently surprised myself with how well I did when I knew I had an end goal. After booking a holiday to Florida that was only 9 weeks away, I managed to save enough money to be able to enjoy myself whilst I was there, without having to worry about money and being able to buy what I wanted (which is what being on holiday is about right?!).
I thought I’d put together a little list of things I found helpful when saving up the pennies. Maybe you don’t even need this list because you have enough money or you’re already really good at saving, maybe it will inspire you to have a go yourself, or just maybe you will try some of these out and surprise yourself with how easy it can be.
