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, @lnum๐Ÿ˜ž

 

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!

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

@lmaster I was looking for one of the Beatles since that song was in my head. But that one was good too.

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

The Beatles are iconic @sprocketta I used to have a crush on Julian Lennon when I was 4 ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿคฃ

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

It's rough! @ather you can do it though!

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

@sprocketta  It helps to have you awesome ladies by my side. @lnum @lmaster 

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

@eshoe I will have to tell my mom about it. How rose-scented is it?

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

Itโ€™s more fruity than rose, at least from what I can tell, @sprocketta. The tint and feel of it are definitely ๐Ÿฅ€ though!

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

@sprocketta What are your goals for the money you will save as a result of this no buy? Sometimes it helps to think about working toward something. 

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

@lnum credit card debt

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

@sprocketta @lmaster @ather 

 

I came home from a walk in the park today and there was a Sephora box on my doorstep. For a moment I was shocked and horrified, verbally explaining to myself โ€œBUT I DIDNโ€™T ORDER ANYTHING....I didnโ€™t! I didnโ€™t?โ€ 

I picked up the box to read the address label and it turned out to be for the resident on the 1st floor. 

Oh my gosh I wish you all could have seen me outside my apartment building talking to myself like a crazy person debating whether I had ordered or not. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

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

@lnum oh my! At least it was someone else's and you didn't crack!

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

@sprocketta At the very least I can say I was not tempted by the box! That seems like progress. 

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

@lnum  Omg. What are the chances! Thatโ€™s so funny. I would have loved to be watching you in that moment Iโ€™m sure it would have been hilarious!!! You are better then me tho I probably would have taken it inside and opened it before I realized it wasnโ€™t mine ๐Ÿ˜ณ

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

@ather Dont worry, I did that with an Amazon order about 2-3 weeks ago and profusely apologized for invading someoneโ€™s privacy. ๐Ÿ˜…

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

@lnum  Oh no. I would be mortified!!

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

@ather Luckily weโ€™re in a small apartment building with only three units, the other two are occupied by the owner and his daughters family, we have known them for 15 years since we moved in so they can be forgiving considering they know just how many packages I receive everyday. ๐Ÿ˜…

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

Oh my gosh!!! @lnum I can just imagine ๐Ÿ˜†

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

@lmaster Yes, the calculus in my head of whether I hallucinated myself into an order I donโ€™t remember placing!
