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!

............ 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.

Re: No Buy July!

Could you spend the $6 in August and still be Rouge or will that be too late?

Re: No Buy July!

Yea, but I'm being super high maintenance and stressing myself over making sure I'm one NOW lol, I need to step away from the laptop and sleep on it lol

Re: No Buy July!

I know I'm jumping on the bandwagon really late here, as it's almost the end of the month, but for good reason. I am challenging myself to a 'No Buy For As Long As I Can'. Seriously, though, I am determined not to make ANY purchases until Sephora's next big sale. In the meantime I am trying to make an extensive list of the things that I will purchase including necessities and splurges. I really think that's the only way I will be able to keep my sanity. Wish me luck...

Oh, this also includes purchases from Ulta, Hautelook..really anything for myself as the kids start school next month and I am (finally) about to receive my tax refund and NEED to save it...

Re: No Buy July!

Thats what I was intending to do, but my self control went right out the window as soon as I walked into Sephoral lol

Re: No Buy July!

Feel free to join in anytime Smiley Happy

Highlighted

Re: No Buy July!

I was totally thinking of doing a "no buy for as long as possible" thing too, but then I looked at some UD Revolution lipstick swatches and now I'm thinking maybe one more purchase before no more buying? Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

WE'RE ALMOST THERE! Smiley Very Happy

I have to say I'm pretty impressed that I survived.

I've had final exams this whole week (two left...can't wait to be done!) so I decided that I'm allowed one makeup item if I survive. I already have my eyes on the new Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks so I plan on getting ONE of those this weekend once I'm finally home! (Have I stressed the one item enough yet? haha)

Have you guys already planned your next purchase or have you decided to extend the no buy?

Re: No Buy July!

Yay!!! One week left!!

 

I am definitely going to extend, but I am going to have to change the rules I made in my mind.  I am going to continue not going crazy buying different hair products, body products, skin care products (use what I have and replace only what I need). But, I am going to a one buy for makeup products. Now what that looks like, I dont know.  Maybe a dollar limit...maybe literally one item no matter the cost...I don't know yet.

Re: No Buy July!

I agree with the skin care/body products. I have so many that need used up, along with makeup.

You still have time to figure it out Smiley Happy I don't know my plans for after this one purchase yet either. Thinking of doing a modified "project 5 pan" that someone else posted earlier where I can buy one makeup item for every 5 I finish. We'll see!
