No Buy After This Week?

Will anyone else be doing a no-buy after this week?  

 

I really need to stop making purchases and use what I have, but I'm worried that as the fall lines come in I'll keep buying Smiley Wink

 

I am hoping I can hold out on any big purchases until my birthday in late fall.  

Re: No Buy After This Week?

My b-day's tomorrow, so I broke down and splurged on the last remaining Sephora Favorites Super Stars set for myself! (in my defense, I only did it because they were out of stock online and I was afraid I had missed it forever!!) So to answer your question, YES to no-buy!! No buying for the rest of this month!! And next month for that matter!!

Re: No Buy After This Week?

Happy Birthday.  I hope tomorrow is a great day for you!  And it's always nice to give yourself a gift Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy After This Week?

Thanks! I completely agree. Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy After This Week?

Totally on board with ya michmo!  I actually have been pretty good since the LORAC debacle!  I managed to avoid purchasing Stila stuff yesterday even though it was all 35% off and I've been dying for the In the Light palette!  And I haven't made any Sephora orders yet this week, and if I do it will be boring utilitarian stuff that I need refills of.  In the interest of full disclosure I did make an impulse buy of a Josie Maran argan oil lippie over the weekend though.  Smiley Happy

 

Overall, I'm trying to hold out for the upcoming holiday sets!  I sooooo regret not getting any mini Tarte blushes last winter so I'm hoping they have more this year!

Re: No Buy After This Week?

Yep, I'm with ya!  I got my spending out of my system this past month what with my trip to tax-free Delaware ULTA and this week's order to Sephora. I really can't even think of anything that I'm due to run out of, so I'm good until the late fall VIB sale at Sephora. (Unless someone gives me a Sephora gift card, in which case all bets are off, those things burn a hole in my pocket! lol)

Re: No Buy After This Week?

Definitely!  Yesterday I restocked on some skincare favorites that had run out, but I'm going to save any fun makeup purchases for later this year when I hope to have b'day giftcards.  My husband (and bank account!) will appreciate that, haha.  I'm shooting for a no-buy September/October, so we'll see how that goes.

Re: No Buy After This Week?

My birthday is the end of November.  I am hoping to really keep my purchases to a minimum until then.  

Re: No Buy After This Week?

I'm with you... well sort of. If there's a good perk or code I might make a small purchase (yay for rouge free shipping!!!!) 

But I'm going to wait until the next % off sale for big purchases 

Re: No Buy After This Week?

Yeah the perks/codes may be a small weakness for me too.  

Re: No Buy After This Week?

I just need to restock on some skincare and then I'll do a nobuy for at least a month if not longer

Re: No Buy After This Week?

Yes, until a good month or so into fall at least, which is when I'm trying to hold out til to buy foundation, I should be pale again by then haha.

Re: No Buy After This Week?

I with you on this one.  I'm not buying anything major until the next % sale and/or holiday sets start to arrive.

I could last a good year or two on what I have.  This whole next year is going to be calmer altogether.

Re: No Buy After This Week?

I almost hope the fall/holiday stuff doesn't come out for a long time.  I'd probably feel better about the splurging if I were running low on stuff instead of building a collection.  

 

For me I think it will be a no buy unless I see something I just cannot live without. Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy After This Week?

lol Part of me is hoping all the brands have horrible holiday sets!  I know this won't happen but it would help me not buy anything!

Re: No Buy After This Week?

Haha, omg, I've thought of that, too! It would kind of help not purchase as much. Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy After This Week?

I will be going on a no-buy probably until the 4x points in and then  cash in for a lot of perks!

Re: No Buy After This Week?

I'm joining you. There's definitely going to be great holiday sets coming, not to mention black friday and such. I vow to wait until the $$ or % off later in the fall.

 

I need to do inventory of my skincare later (I'm willing to bet I have a larger stash than almost anyone here) but I have at least 6+ of everything. I exchanged my bday gift this year for the Fresh lip before the promo code came out. I placed an order to take advantage of the 3x pts. So, I think I'm all set.

 

With the only exception being mini lipstick. Is it weird I like those better than the full size ones?

Re: No Buy After This Week?

Ahhh I am definitely doing a no buy after this week. I spent a ton at Sephora yesterday, and then I bought a samsung tablet today. There goes all the money I made in the past month! Smiley Tongue My boyfriend's birthday is in a month and I want to get him something nice so I'm thinking no buying for myself for at least a month. But I can't seem to get off of Sephora's website and there are so many more things I want to buyyyy! 

Re: No Buy After This Week?

I should do a no-buy, too.  I hit Rouge in two weeks, I probably need to take a break!

Re: No Buy After This Week?

Ah, I should try to participate in the no buy....until my birthday in mid-September. And maybe I'll need to make some small purchases. Or big ones, if they're necessary.

Re: No Buy After This Week?

This is about as much as I could commit to a no-buy, lol!

Re: No Buy After This Week?

me too!!! my bdays in september!!! Smiley Happy
