No Buy July!

No Buy July!

Having gone through my makeup collection extensively the past week, I've decided to go on a 'No Buy July' challenge (which includes not buying necessities such as makeup remover and brush cleansers, since I have loads of deluxe samples to go through.) As an avid supporter of both Sephora stores and Sephora.com, this might be difficult, but I'm still determined :smileyhappy:.

 

My goal is to make it through the entire month of July without any purchases, and if possible, until my birthday in August.

 

If any of you beautyholics are also planning on a No Buy July, please comment below (and help each other through the next month-ish! :smileyvery-happy:)

Re: No Buy July!

I know I'm jumping on the bandwagon really late here, as it's almost the end of the month, but for good reason. I am challenging myself to a 'No Buy For As Long As I Can'. Seriously, though, I am determined not to make ANY purchases until Sephora's next big sale. In the meantime I am trying to make an extensive list of the things that I will purchase including necessities and splurges. I really think that's the only way I will be able to keep my sanity. Wish me luck...

Oh, this also includes purchases from Ulta, Hautelook..really anything for myself as the kids start school next month and I am (finally) about to receive my tax refund and NEED to save it...

I was totally thinking of doing a "no buy for as long as possible" thing too, but then I looked at some UD Revolution lipstick swatches and now I'm thinking maybe one more purchase before no more buying? :smileyvery-happy:

Re: No Buy July!

I agree, don't torment yourself, especially if you have something not too expensive that you actually want (or even better, need). I don't think waiting a week will make you miss much, but don't let making yourself wait mean you overspend later. 

 

So far I haven't placed an order to get my kit. I'm thinking I'll redeem a scent certificate in store and pick up my kit there. I hope I can keep from buying much of anything. My Rouge number is far too high, already.

I'm trying to kind of wait until I go instore so I can get the card, and I know I'm probably being over dramatic and won't miss anything, if at all but its eating at me, the problem is I don't have anything that I need to buy that's $6.

Could you spend the $6 in August and still be Rouge or will that be too late?

Re: No Buy July!

Haha Soap and Glory has some Awesome $3 travel sized face washes i love!! You could go snag a Nail polish, or check out the sale section!! They said VIB Rouge Emails will be sent out the 25th, so who knows what it might say/offer.

Re: No Buy July!

I need to try the S&G face wash! I threw it in my cart just to get free shipping a while ago and I haven't gotten around to testing it.

Re: No Buy July!

I did the exact same thing...and ended up loving it. I've tried other cleansers since (because I always think the next one is going to be better...whats new) but I think I'm going to repurchase this once my other ones run out. Either that or purity...hmmmm

Re: No Buy July!

If this is a better alternative than Purity, I'm all for it! lol Especially since Purity is so pricey. *sigh*

Re: No Buy July!

Guys... I was bad today! I went to the mall and broke *sigh* But I did much better than I normally would! I only spent 60ish dollars and normally I would spend like 200. SO I've gotten a lot better and thats what this is all about right... right?!?! Justify my purchases!!

Re: No Buy July!

Re: No Buy July!
