2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

Image result for 2020 Gif

 

Hello, hello! Welcome to Year 6 of the No/Low Buy Thread.  

        *Many thanks to all who have participated over the last few years.  While I don't

         post often I do read the notifications sent to my email and I cannot say it enough,

         You all are truly amazing!  Thank you for your dedication and support!!

 

For reference here's the purpose of this thread (from Thread Originator, @lnum😞

 

This thread is a support system for all of us who are trying to maintain a budget and keep our beauty spending limited. Post here when you have a weak moment, post here to hold yourself accountable, post here when you just need someone to talk to, post here when you have advice for all of us, and post here when you make mistakes but also make gains! Many of us post here to keep track of our monthly purchases. Anything you need to say, we are all here for each other. There's no judgement here.

 

Feel free to share your goals, items that tempt you, missteps (we don't believe in failures), and any successes.  Above all else, encourage and support one another.

 

A note from lnum (2016):

Welcome to Year 3!

 

My motto for this thread is that I strongly believe, even on a budget, you can have the things you want that make you happy without feeling like you're limiting yourself.

I am so excited to spend another year with you all. If it wasn't for the first two years of this thread, I would never have been able to cut down my beauty spending. My goal for this year is to maintain low spending on beauty, and cut down my clothing purchases. I will be funneling that money into traveling, which is what I have done in the past and it's a great goal that truly motivates me. 

 

I'm still so proud of everyone for making it through 2015 and 2016, limiting ourselves in the beauty product area in order to improve our lives in other areas. We all did great and here's to another year of learning and saving!

@ather yesterday we seen a snake swimming and that kinda freaked me out 😆

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

@lmaster  Ewwwww that’s so gross. I wouldn’t go in the water after seeing that. 

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

@ather I just remember they won't come where there is activity,, but literally as soon as everyone was out,,, there it went

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

yikes  @lmaster  I used to live right on the river, and used to go in there all the time...but yeah, seeing those "critters", and crawdads, made me not want to go in there anymore...but hey they were probly more scared, right?  like "what's this giant thing doing in my house!?" lol.

 

another time I was on a walk, and happened to look at this tree, and saw a snake sitting in it. 😮

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

@treestar86 I have a huge pond on our property, and I refuse to go in to it,, I know for a fact there are snapping turtles and snakes among tons of fish, at least at the lake there's a beach with sand and you can see the bottom and it's massively huge

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

yikes!  those turtles don't sound fun either @lmaster . well enjoy the lake! 🙂

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

Thank you!! @treestar86 next year I'm getting a pool installed... Been waiting for two years, but the weather is finally staying consistent and warm enough to put the energy into maintenance

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

Ahhhh @sprocketta the Wild Rose is nice! It is more pigmented but goes on somewhat sheer. It has a very light, almost fruity scent, too.C7FFE4A8-52AF-4FCE-AAAB-0B397EFB149E.jpeg

 

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

@eshoe  Oooo that looks nice!! 

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

I love their lip butters, @ather. I’ve used them for awhile now, hardly ever talk about them because I’m always trying to finish a Bite or Laneige product😆 But they are so nice. I like the Jasmine as well, another one that isn’t scented like you would expect. They all have a bit of a light, fruity scent. Very nourishing, too:)

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

@eshoe Oh man I had to look through emails to find mine. I have the guava one. For some reason I don't think I liked it when I first got it. I recently re found it earlier this year and I really like it. It's 4 years old now and works and smells amazing lol. 

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

Yeah, I don’t think it’s for everyone, @Samtian! Sometimes I go back to something I’ve tried and disliked in the past, and end up loving it. So it’s always worth a second shot.

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

@eshoe They age like a fine wine!

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

Ughhhhh @eshoe @sprocketta look at that beautiful color 😭 hurry up July @ather @lnum 🤦 10 days in.. Getting that anxious feeling 😆

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

Are you on a no buy too, @lmaster? I have been in a quarantine-low-buy which means no more browsing TJ Maxx😭. Everything has been more intentional, and as a result, my stash is looking a little sparse this days 😄 

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

I'm trying to get some discipline in the spending area @eshoe I want to prove to myself I can do it,,I don't need every beauty I want 😢😳 or do I 🤦

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

Well good for you, @lmaster - I hope it’s a success! It is sooooooo hard to do but yeah it does feel good to do it (when it’s over😂).

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

@eshoe thank you sweet friend!! I'll take all the support I can get 🤗♥️🌈

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

@lmaster @sprocketta @lnum  Urg I’m feeling you too. I’m having a hard time with this!!

Re: 2020 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD
