Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

So, it's time to go on an extended no buy. I have more than I could ever enjoy for quite awhile.  However, if you have gotten to know me a bit- it's going to be easier said than done!

 

So, this thread is hopefully going to be a support group for me- and anyone else who wants to join me in a summer of no buy.

 

The tricky thing is that I've got about 40% of my toner left and maybe 20% of my daytime moisturizer- and I see pan on my HG concealer.  I have to buy the concealer since it's a staple product (and I have used up all of the other concealers that match my skin). I'd like to use up some skincare before repurchasing my daytime moisturizer- but if my skin reacts, I'll revisit the issue.

 

When will the no buy end?  I'm not sure, but fall collections will be on counters, if not on the leaves!

ok, i can read. May 1st.

On the flip side, I already skipped one of my monthly subscriptions, and I anticipate a skip coming on another Monday morning (since *cough* I upgraded last month to the whole honkin' collection).  I'm making baby steps here!

 

Normally at an in-store event, I would've bought something from my face... especially when I was in lust with it like today.  If nothing else, I learned my NARS foundation color (Mount Blanc rather than the Siberia I guessed online) for future reference- and possible future purchase when I'm out.

I also found a home for half of my samples!

 

I gave my mother a small bag full of samples on Mothers' Day and she's been going crazy.  Self admittedly she "buys Cover Girl at the grocery store for gas points with a coupon"- but will totally use nicer products, provided it's no money out of her pocket.

 

Two birds, one stone.  My mother gets far nicer products, I make some serious headway on my samples.  We all win.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Just checking in- after slipping twice last week, I haven't even thought of buying anything for the past two days.  I know soon enough two days will become four, etc, etc, etc...

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

nice work the past two days! 

 

For me, if I am really into something, if I can divert my attention and get hooked on another thing, it helps keep me away from the first thing Im addicted to!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I thought my most recent purchase will hold me over for a while until I checked my e-mail this morning & got a 100 GC from my friend. So now what... I'm going to wait until there's a better perk to place an order, but $100 goes quickly. It's going to be tough not to go over budget.

Smiley Happy  that is nice of your friend!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I know right! Her boyfriend was trying to convince her to get something for the new house... but she knows me too well! Smiley Happy 

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Well, my no-buy might be even longer than I was planning.

 

My AC died last night... and I live in part of the country where not having AC isn't an option. It's already been an incredibly hot 24 hours- and it will be at least 36 more before I can get a repairman.  Even if it only needs freon, that will set me back significant money.

 

This no-buy was timely.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Smiley Sad I'm so sorry about that Starletta. Unexpected costs are the worst and I definitely feel for you on that one--my car broke down last month and it was anything but cheap. Sending positive vibes wherever you may be!
