2024 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

 

ElleElleG_1-1712024799681.jpeg

 

New Year,  New Thread, cheers to Year 10 of the  of the No/Low Buy Thread 🥂🥂

       

This thread was initially created by the amazing @lnum and this is how she described the purpose of this challenge: 

 

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.

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: 2024 - THE NO-BUY, LOW-BUY, BUDGET-BUY ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT THREAD

@ElleElleG Thank you for keeping this thread going. I was supposed to be on a low/no buy this year. I have made some purchases for Lunar New Year, some new releases and I have my cart going for the sale. A lot of the items in my cart are restocks, while a few are new items. The Capsule Makeup Collection Challenge has been helping me shop my stash and realize how much makeup I have. My weakness is Lipstick but it is also starting to become Foundations and eyeshadow palettes.

LOL @Mellmars1185 you found this before I tagged you 🙃 Also thanks for highlighting that thread, I've added that to the OP.

 

Restocks can be so tricky. Like the temptation to add a bonus item or two 🤐. What times do you have your eye on and are you completely out of things or restocking more because a sale is on the horizon?
