No-buy

I went way overboard with purchases this month (2 orders with Sephora last week alone).  So I decided to put myself on a "no-buy" for the entire month of July.  Has anyone successfully done this before?  I know I won't be able to read fashion and beauty blogs or open emails from my favorite stores, but any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Re: No-buy

Hi!  I am definitely going to be joining everyone on this no-buy at least for the month of January.  I went a little overboard with purchases (particularly at Sephora) recently, and since I feel like I have everything I absolutely need right now, I'm not going to buy any beauty products in the rest of January. Wish me luck! Smiley Happy

Re: No-buy

Okay I am in for a no buy for January. I've gotten everything I need (and then some!) so I'm pretty much set for several months. I wont buy anything unless I completely run out of something.

Re: No-buy

i'm with ya! no more unnessary makeup purchases! 

 

i just have a $5 extracare coupon from CVS that i was originally planning to use on some makeup (who knows what) but i'll spend that on any other pharmacy/personal care needs. Smiley Happy 

 

and if i can successfully make it to February then maybe i'll reward myself with something? (eeek)

Re: No-buy

I'm pretty proud of myself right now.  Since I bought the Naked 2 palette I haven't purchased anything else unnecessary from December 1!  (I did get the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer at Nordstrom, but that was Christmas money that my mother in law insisted I had to spend on myself, not on paying bills.  The rest of the money went for a new sports bra and cell phone.)  I also managed to clean out quite a bit of clutter from my walk-in closet and my bathroom (empty shoeboxes and papers are gone from the closet; old expired stuff underneath my bathroom cabinets are gone.) 

 

I'm already feeling less stressed because of less clutter in our bedroom/closet/master bath!  Maybe I should take advantage of those bath bombs in the Lush bag in my closet and use one...the warm water will actually feel really good on my sprained ankle, too.
