Good morning Hackney, 

Congratulations on your hubby getting that new job. That is such wonderful news. Have you decided how to celebrate? you must stay strong though.  Just stick to your no buy resolution until your birthday. It's hard, especially when something good happens. Your first impulse is to buy buy. But we are here for you.

I am loving this little group!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Thanks Makeupinfinity! Well I didn't celebrate with a purchase even though I sooooo wanted too! The hubby even said I could but nope, I held strong!!!

Good for you. It's always hardest in the beginning but then you get used to it.....hopefully :smileyhappy:

My sister stopped by yesterday and unloaded a huge bag of free samples. Seems the associates at her Sephora were quite generous during the VIB Rouge event last month. There are so many wonderful items to try out!

BTW hackney can you please show us what you got from yesterday's boxes? 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Ohhhhh, I dumped all that in the stash boxes already, these pics are what I will be going through tomorrow.

This is funny because last week I had a Secret Reward card from VS, and I was sure it had $10, and I told my husband I was going to go to VS, but this time he was like you don't need anything, and I was like I know but if I get the 7/35 Fantasies I will pay 25, and he said no... I gave up and went online to see how much exactly my card had... it has $100... I told him I had a $100 and he said see, if I didn't tell you no, you wouldn't have checked and you would have gone to the store thinking it had $10... This week I got 2 rewards cards one for $10 and one for $30.... Guess I am going back.... before they expire. :smileyhappy:

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Nice! Have fun shopping!

On a positive note, I been trying out the numerous perfume samples I have and I no longer want to buy Jo Malone red roses (most lovely rose scent as far as I can see on the market) since it just doesn't feel like "me"

 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Have a ton of perfume samples so that helps to curb my need to buy!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I also have a ton I am thinking of getting something to put them on top of my vanity so I can pick one up and start using them up.

Yes, I love the Marc Jacobs Daisy so I get that sample every time I placed an order as a sample if it was available, at this point no need to buy for while since I have tons of them ;-)

 

I always carry a few of them in my purse, they so convenient.

I didn't officially join this but mentally I did. So I want to confess that I just bought a toner (Paula's Choice Skin Recovery toner). I am runny low on my current toner, but I could have waited a month or 2, but the free shipping plus $10 from referring friend plus 15% off plus the want/need to get sample sized masks for the plane over took me. I still have my eye on the Clinique moisture surge overnight mask, but lets all try to be strong! 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Hi! This no-buy thing is a lot harder than I thought! I swear it is a sickness! There is always something! I am on day 6 and this is the longest stretch since 01/01 where I have went without a purchase.

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I hear that! All I'm doing is reading this thread and wishing I had enough willpower to participate. So sad. 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

I think I buy more when I'm on a no-buy, lol. When I saw this, the first thing that popped into my head was "But what about all of the LE Mac collections?? I can't possibly NOT get anything!"

 

That being said, I've decided to buy less, and rethink purchases, ESPECIALLY if they aren't things I need.

I don't need anymore eyeshadow palettes, highlighters, blushes...pretty much everything besides lipstick, because that's the one thing I can't resist.
