I'll keep using my paperblanks* journal to record any wants.

So out of a total of 59 wants I'll definitely think about purchasing 26.

And I'm going to do a mini spending ban for the month of May - I'll update you at the end of May as to how I have done.

  1. This is such a great idea! It's especially cool to see that since you waited, you didn't end up even wanting everything. I keep a section in my planner full of products I want as well. I myself am interested in the Weleda products and the Badger yoga balm!

  2. If you weren't on the spending ban you may have bought all this. I think it's a great idea to keep an account of what you want and refer back later as most things lose the initial appeal x

  3. You made it! Yay. Good job. If I had a spending ban, I'd accumulate a long wants list too. I don't recognize a lot of the things on your list, so I'm looking forward to reading your reviews.

  6. It's amazing how often if you wait to see if you REALLY want something the desire goes. Wish lists are the best!
