So this is inspired by YouTuber PinkSoFoxy...
Mellee was kind enough to share this on the Jan 2013 no-buy thread:
PinkSoFoxy on Youtube has started "Make Out 2013". She's committing to buying only 10 makeup items this year including replacements, and some other youtubers are joining in. Don't know if I could do that... But I'm watching the declutter videos she's done over the past few months, and it kinda makes me wanna try!
And I got inspired! So this thread will be for everyone to declare and update how they're doing on their Makeout 2013.
I'll get the ball rolling with the rules I will follow for myself, for the year. I looked (and cleaned out) my stash, and this is what I think I can do:
- Five new, beauty (make-up, skincare, haircare, soap, tools/appliances, toothpaste, accessories, everything) items until Black Friday, November 2013 (now, those sales are too good to miss).
The exceptions to the Five new beauty items are:
- My two remaining beauty box subscriptions: BirchBox and Sample Society....I already let MyGlam/Ipsy expire this past December
- Whatever I obtain through MUT trades, the L'Oreal, Influenster, Bzz, or other such testing panels....ie, no money spent.
- Additional items to the Original Five via FIFO (first-in-first-out) only. For every six full-sized items or every 15 sample-size items I use up, I can add one more new beauty item to my original Five allowances.
And that's it....oh, except, I still have those Zoya polishes on order....good thing I'm starting this Makeout 2013 now, and not a couple weeks ago!
LOL, and of course, my birthday month is coming up, so one of my five will be used up at Sephora in Feb!
Wish me luck, and I'll keep you all posted! PS - why have I not seen this emoticon before?!
