No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

 

No, I can't believe that I'm suggesting it either.

 

I just looked at what I ordered this weekend with the extra point event and it's a total of 11 orders and over $1100.  I spent at least that much in July also (just at Sephora). For me, it's not really about the money. It's more realizing that at this rate of accumulating things I'm not taking time to enjoy anything. 

 

I've never officially tried a no-buy. Anyone else want to give it a shot? It's only for 13 days. Not a huge commitment.

 

Note: This can't be like that No-Buy July thread that turned into a total Enibbler Event.

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

You can do this.  No matter what you are craving, that craving passes in approximately 15min, so if you can make it through 15min you can make it.

 

Are there other pick me ups you have?  Could you use your existing products to come up with a new look? that would be something to focus on.

 

Do you have a journal?  Or a favorite book or movie?  Or a friend you could call?

 

You can do this.

Even if you make an order right now, you won't get it any sooner than the package already waiting for you, right? What made your day so rough? We're here to listen!

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

I wanted to thank all that wished me well yesterday. This is truly a great community of friends. Thank you for including me.

I wanted to let everyone know that I sucked it up, focused on everyone's words of support and did not buy a thing.

I am still in and can do this!

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Yay! 9 days to go, single digits! I hope today was a better day Smiley Happy

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

i've been trying to do a no buy/low buy since march, and i admitted all of my purchases etc recently on my blog.. But you guys can do it!! I managed to do ok, went a bit crazy for my birthday, and otherwise just used gc/store credit... but the amount of stuff in my collection keeps growing and i don't wear makeup much anyway lol

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Yesterday I got an email about a ten piece deluxe sample kit from shu umera, I was strong.. it was not easy my cart was full and I was putting in the promo code before I realized I was on a no buy, I am still waiting for my packages... this has me irky perhaps when I can touch my goodies i shall feel better!

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Seriously, some places take their good ol' time with shipping! SMH. *high five* for not caving in Smiley Happy

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Thanks! Those deluxe sample sized GWP always get me!!! I'm determined to stop getting skincare/ body care till I use up at least 80% of what I have, I'm so proud of myself lol I haven't bought any skincare of body care recently.

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

I know! Then I looked at the small print and 7 of the samples are 0.1 oz or smaller, that made it a LOT less tempting.

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

I didn't even look at that lol, the picture they sent was just so enticing!

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Enticing, but misleading! Aren't you glad you didn't do it??

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

GAH.  I have mild OCD, and the fact that my points total ends in a six is bugging the pants off me!  I have to keep myself from trolling the sale section for something I can get for $4.  >.<

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Don't look at it!! You don't need to spend the four dollars!

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

O gosh! I feel a little better knowing I'm not the only person who does that!

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

@Esdee,

You could return something that's $6  Smiley Happy

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

My point total ends in a 6 as well!! It bothers me too... I am glad I am not the only one who is crazy OCD like that too!!!

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

omg Im right there with you, I just love makeup and especially Sephora!! im sitting here asking my boyfriend for 500.00$ just so I can buy my whole entire love list, I mean how crazy is that!? ive made a promise to myself that after I complete my love list im completely done with buying makeup until I completely run out!

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

@Jenny1218,

I'm sorry to have to be the one to tell you this, but.... that promise to yourself..... it's probably not going to happen Smiley Happy

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

HA! I was thinking the same thing. My loves list just keeps growing & growing... 

& then stop buying makeup all together... hehehe 

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

@Jenny1218, I absolutely agree with Pink D (aka Delilah) - it is not going to happen Smiley Very Happy

 

P.S. Delilah - Pink D can be your rapper name! Just kidding!!

 

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Ahahahaha, I want to hear rap songs about makeup!

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

@Rikkie, Ciara has a rap song "Wake Up, No Make-up", so I'm waiting to hear a pop song from Nicki Minaj "Wake Up, TONS O'Make-up". Smiley Happy

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Hah! I think maybe if you tried to remove all of Nicki Minaj's makeup, you'd just go through layer after layer until there was nothing left! She'd just disappear! 

 

She is actually gorgeous, looking at pictures of her with something resembling a more natural look, but holy shizballs you couldn't pay me enough to leave the house with some of the hair/makeup she does. 

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

@Rikkie - "She'd just disappear!" Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy  Also, I agree with you totally about leaving the house with some of the looks that she comes up with. Out. Rage. Jus.

 

 

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

I want to hear that one too.  Or am just supposed to write it? considering I now have a rapper name and all.
