Spring is in the air…and my savings as well ! What can I do to get back on track ?

With Spring comes sunny weather, drinks or cocktails on terrace and the craving to wear colourful and vibrant colours. This is it. With that in mind, it’s pure temptation to go to Zara and I didn’t resist to it. I mean, it’s a pleasure for the eyes to see the spring-summer collection and let your mind escape from the routine to think about holiday, city break and beaches. Additionally shopping therapy was a must-have. I needed to pamper myself for a long time and it was a golden opportunity to do it right now.

After that how can we even think about savings seriously ? It’s hard but I learn that when you truly need to pamper yourself and you have been disciplined for ages, you can afford to have a real treat. The secret is to get back to your disciplined mindset as soon as you pampered yourself and this is where I found it  tricky because… there are so many beautiful things out there, books, make up, jewellery, lingerie etc…

My exception to the rule started to create pure dilemma where I was tempted by everything and I truly feel as if my savings were also in the air but deep down I knew I needed to sort out this issue. What I did is to remember precisely what are my long term goals for this year, in a nutshell what I want to achieve this year and which budget do I need to reach my personal goals. And honestly by just doing this mental workout, my craving for shopping lessened to completely disappear for good. So, yes it’s great to have a treat and pamper ourselves but keeping in mind our goals is the ultimate key to get back on track.
