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 Smiley Happy.

 

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! Smiley Very Happy)

Re: No Buy July!

Re: No Buy July!

Hahaha omg we should get that trending!

Seriously though I had so much catching up to do!

Re: No Buy July!

I may need to join... Posting this from the car dealership.

Re: No Buy July!

Aw I feel for you. That happened to me last week. Sending positive thoughts your way, and hoping everything works out with your car!

Re: No Buy July!

It turned out to be really minor- so of course I hit the mall afterwards.

 

*face.palm*

Re: No Buy July!

There must be something about car dealerships and stress that calls for some retail/beauty therapy. Right after I left the dealership with my car is when I bought the perfume I talked about a few days ago. I avoided makeup but still needed a pick-me-up!

Re: No Buy July!

Retail therapy soothes the soul Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Hahahaha... I guess that means you're not joining

Re: No Buy July!

Oh no! I hate dealing with cars -- next to computers!

Re: No Buy July!

Good luck! It's never to late to join haha

Re: No Buy July!

I feel the need to confess... I almost did damage on an impulse buy. I was SO CLOSE to just buying two bh cosmetics palettes on Hautelook along with a BCBG crossbody bag. But as I was filling out my information I made myself take a step back and realized that I don't need them!!!

One more impulse buy avoided.

Re: No Buy July!

And lesson learned. No good comes of online browsing, especially on Hautelook. You only find things you want.

Re: No Buy July!

Good for you! What really keeps me from pressing the "Submit Order" button is taking a few deep breaths and re-evaluating my current stash of said item(s) Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Oh no! You're so strong, I had to stop going on hautelook all together because it got really bad... I was one of those people waiting for the sales to start! My bank account really took a dent that summer x.x

Re: No Buy July!

I had been avoiding it and for some reason thought I could go on there today and just browse... it took me until I was filling out my credit card info to realize what I was doing. I'm glad I stopped myself!

Re: No Buy July!

So, I just went into Sephora today. Did a couple swatches, sprayed a couple scents, and, oh boy, I am finding more things that I want to buy.  I am afraid that I am building a dam in July only for it to break and the waters come gushing out come August!  That was not my intent for the no buy at all (especially since I need to save money and not just in July).

 

What are your plans after the no buy is over?  Are you going to continue?  Are you going back to your old ways?  Any suggestions on how to avoid drowning come August?

Re: No Buy July!

I'm kind of on the same page, it seems that I'm just going to go crazy in August, but I'm trying to hold off till the 20% off because then I will actually be saving money even if I buy it all in one huge order.

Re: No Buy July!

20% off will be a nice chunk of change saved!

Re: No Buy July!

Exactly! Thats what I keep telling myself and I haven't bought anything yet haha

Re: No Buy July!

What is this 20% off you're talking about?! Is it a VIB thing?

Re: No Buy July!

Yea I think regular beauty insiders get 15% off, VIBs get 20% off though for friends and family or something like that
