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!

Guys... I was bad today! I went to the mall and broke *sigh* But I did much better than I normally would! I only spent 60ish dollars and normally I would spend like 200. SO I've gotten a lot better and thats what this is all about right... right?!?! Justify my purchases!!

Re: No Buy July!

OH NOES!!!!!!!!!

Re: No Buy July!

I'm disappointed in myself! But... I'm super happy with the stuff I got lol, and I got a hairbrush and a shampoo those are kind of essentials!

The real reason for the purchases was that I want to qualify for Rouge before they roll out the program and I'm only like $30 away now >_>

Re: No Buy July!

It's alright! You can always do a no buy August if you have to Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Oh I was so close to making it too lol! But you know what my goal was just to drastically minimize how much I was spending! And I've definitely done that! I mean going from $200 to $60 a month thats about a fourth of my spending cut! If I can keep this up and be frivolous with my purchases I think it'll stick Smiley Happy 

Re: No Buy July!

............ and then the holiday collections start trickling in Smiley Wink LOL!

Re: No Buy July!

You evil woman!!! Lol, gosh that budget FLIES out the window lol, lets not think about that now shall we. 

Re: No Buy July!

Is there such a thing as a one buy?  That I can do Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy July!

If by one buy you mean one day of buying Smiley Very Happy lol

Re: No Buy July!

Hahahaha Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Guys... omg I'm literally 6 dollars away from being a rouge x_x... I can't I can't. I swear if I miss out on anything I'll combust!!

Re: No Buy July!

I'll let it slide with No Buy with that $6 limit Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

The only thing holding me back is that yesterday I also broke my no buy >_< eep! I should just make one of my friends buy something x_x its killing meeeee

Re: No Buy July!

It's only $6! Do it!! Just don't go crazy! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

That's what I keep telling myself! Just $6 do it do it! Lol, but then the thing is like... whats $6....

Re: No Buy July!

Haha Soap and Glory has some Awesome $3 travel sized face washes i love!! You could go snag a Nail polish, or check out the sale section!! They said VIB Rouge Emails will be sent out the 25th, so who knows what it might say/offer.

Re: No Buy July!

I need to try the S&G face wash! I threw it in my cart just to get free shipping a while ago and I haven't gotten around to testing it.

Re: No Buy July!

I did the exact same thing...and ended up loving it. I've tried other cleansers since (because I always think the next one is going to be better...whats new) but I think I'm going to repurchase this once my other ones run out. Either that or purity...hmmmm

Re: No Buy July!

If this is a better alternative than Purity, I'm all for it! lol Especially since Purity is so pricey. *sigh*

Re: No Buy July!

I agree, don't torment yourself, especially if you have something not too expensive that you actually want (or even better, need). I don't think waiting a week will make you miss much, but don't let making yourself wait mean you overspend later. 

 

So far I haven't placed an order to get my kit. I'm thinking I'll redeem a scent certificate in store and pick up my kit there. I hope I can keep from buying much of anything. My Rouge number is far too high, already. 

Re: No Buy July!

I'm trying to kind of wait until I go instore so I can get the card, and I know I'm probably being over dramatic and won't miss anything, if at all but its eating at me, the problem is I don't have anything that I need to buy that's $6.
