Too Much

Is there such a thing? My hubby has asked me today to cut back my spending and slow it down. LOL. How horrible am I that I need him to call me out? I feel bad because I have like 3 orders coming in the mail. Is anyone else guilty of hiding bags or boxes?

Re: Too Much

I feel so much better that someone posted about this!! I have more makeup than anyone could use in a lifetime, clothes that have tags on them (keeping in mind I've had them for years..), and shoes I've had for months and have yet to wear. I live at home but make a decent amount for someone my age, so I've always been able to indulge myself. Now I'm trying to move out, aka trying to save and trying to stop myself from shopping all the time, and it is horrible. In seeing what someone else wrote about shelves toppling over, I have a storage container that is totally full, one drawer that is totally full in one of those 3 drawer plastic storage containers, a thing that hangs on the back of a door that is totally full, and my entire dresser is COVERED in makeup. I always want to smack myself when I knock over a brush and everything just goes toppling over with it. My mom lectures me constantly on how I need to stop spending, and honestly I've hit my breaking point. It got to the point that I was taking money from the ATM so she couldn't see my credit card charges (she unfortunately works at my bank so she can see those things), and I would hide the stuff when bringing it in the house, then keep it under my bed. That being said, I've put myself on a no-makeup buying limitation and I've been so shocked at the amount of things I've hit pan on. I also recently started a weekly makeup bag (which I use Mon-Fri and then for the weekends I use whatever). I put aside the items I am going to use that week and that is it. The idea is to pick different items each way and force yourself to use your different things vs. grabbing what we have learned to love. I've loved doing this and have been able to get great use out of some stuff and also rediscovered things I forgot I had. This also has been able to remind me why I don't use certain products and I've then tossed them. I suggest trying it out! I periodically also look over my collection, see what I don't use, and try to return as much as I can. I feel bad returning it, but there is no point in having it sit there unused. 

Re: Too Much

So sneaky! LOL bad girl. Honestly I don't have a large amount of makeup but I think that I went overboard buying a huge chunk of it just in the last month. I also have been spending on lotions. perfume, clothes etc so it's not just makeup. I'll post a picture of my collection and my secret haul I've stached in a Victoria's Secret bag... that came in the mail WITH the haul. So... not so secret Smiley Wink

Re: Too Much

Okay ladies let's make a challenge/pact. A couple of you mentioned having this same problem so let's do a challenge not to buy anything until the end of March. It sounds like a big deal now that I'm typing this but I think I really need to detox lol. Anyone with me? We can set up rules on what counts and what doesn't.

Re: Too Much

@FABZ-Can I just help those of you out that need it? Because I really don't think I can't make it that long without buying something. But I'll be here for moral support. OK??? Smiley HappySmiley Happy
