  1. I used up one little item: a bag of A0A Studio Pure Cotton Squares [Shop Miss A]. I paid off my credit card in full today. I also made the September minimum payment already for the next credit card on my snowball list. After that payment, the balance is $118.07. Goal is to pay that off by September 9, in time for the billing cycle closing date.
  2. Making progress On the left side of the photo are some items I'm finishing, and on the right are some new things I'm starting to use up. I am almost finished with Yves Rocher Detox Micellar Shampoo. I have about enough for one more shampoo. Then I'll be down to just one shampoo, Suave Rose Shampoo, which I really love. So project use it up will be done in at least one category. I finished two deluxe sample face creams, Sisley Botanical D Tox, and Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer. I am starting to use my mini of La Mer Cream, which is wonderful. Finished my bottle of Yves Rocher Grapefruit Thyme Shower Gel, 6.7 ounces. Starting on my Yves Rocher Naturelle Osmanthus Shower Gel, 6.7 ounces. This shower gel was made to match a limited edition perfume that was created in 2015, a citrusy floral for spring. I used to have a mini bottle of the perfume, which I didn't use, and just threw away. I've wasted so many things. I was spoiled; I took things for granted. I will never take nice things and enjoyment for granted again. I will cherish my Naturelle Osmanthus Shower Gel this month. I wish I could get back all the things I wasted. When I was growing up, we did not have the Internet, and project pan and no buy were unheard of. We all followed magazines, which were all about new, new, new, and we were told to replace things all the time. Add to that perfectionism and feeling bad about one's looks, and there was no chance of being satisfied or enjoying the things you had. The no buy project pan trend has helped me so much, and I wish it had been a thing when I was younger. I would have enjoyed so much. I paid $40 extra on my credit card. I now owe $37.76. I'm pretty sure I will be finished paying it off this week.
  3. I finished my Sisley shampoo and Izia Body Lotion foil packet samples this morning. The shampoo is a miracle, but I won't pay $75 for a bottle. If I ever get more samples of it, I'll save them for a special occasion. It was payday today. I made my August payment early for the credit card I'm trying to pay off this month, and now the balance is $77.76.
  4. I'm going to continue my No Buy and Project Use It Up in August. Here is where I am at in using up products now: A0A Pure Cotton Rounds from Shop Miss A; Sisley Shampoo foil pack sample; Yves Rocher Grapefruit Thyme Shower Gel full size; finished mini bottle of Pixi Rose Tonic and started on mini Pixi Glow Tonic; Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer deluxe sample; Sisley Izia Perfumed Body Lotion foil pack. I want to pay off a credit card with balance $116 this month.
  5. I finished No Buy July. It was not too difficult, and went better than expected. I saved $120 total to put towards debt - paid off one credit card and sent $50 extra to another one. I used a few things up. I'm going to keep working on my No Buy in August!
  6. Hello new friends.
  7. I paid 50 extra dollars on my credit card. Now owe 116.76. I am using up Sisley shampoo and Izia body lotion foil packets No Buy July is almost over. It has gone by fast.
  8. I miss many Yves Rocher products from the past, perfumes like Shafali, Ming Shu, Magnolia, Venice, Ispahan, Vie Privee, Clea, and many others. Everything has a memory to go with it. They used to have the cutest bottles and jars ever. It's sad Mr. Yves Rocher passed away. He always used to send a letter that said "Chere Amie." They used to send gifts for your birthday and anniversary of being a customer with them. You used to get so much for your money too. Now it's more expensive but still good.
  9. I've been ordering from Yves Rocher since 1991. It was when I was in university, my happy young years. I used to have fun ordering with my Mom. Brings back good memories. The promos with the free gifts are a major weakness of mine!
  10. Used up: Sisley concealer foil packet - it is wonderful. It has an orange undertone to counteract dark circles. The texture is gorgeous. Sisley Global Perfect (pore minimizing face cream) deluxe sample - it is rich and creamy but also has a powdery finish at the same time. Caudalie VineActiv eye cream deluxe sample I finished a full size shower gel - Yves Rocher Apricot Rosemary. It is a 6.7 ounce size, and took me a month to use. I was excited to finish it. I have a Grapefruit Thyme shower gel of the same size, so I think I can use it up in the next month, along with paying off my credit card, which is now at $166. I'm also going to use this very cute little bottle of Pixi Rose Tonic, which smells beautiful.
  11. Thank you for the support. It feels great to have the motivation back. It has been a month now - it was like a miracle - I was sitting in my room planning my bill payments one night and all of a sudden I found myself back in the No Buy zone! I finished the small goal of using up all my foil sample packets of hair care, skin care, and body care. That was enjoyable. Since my last post, I used up the following: Dermactin-TS Pore Cleansing Peeling Gel foil packet Dermactin-TS Intensive Pore Sealing Moisturizer foil packet Dermactin-TS Collagen Skin Serum foil packet Sisley hand cream foil packet Sisley Black Rose Oil foil packet Graydon Skin Care Face Glow foil packet. That was a lovely foil packet! I really loved using it for the past week. I received it in my Beauty Heroes sub box. It is a tinted face cream. It has a lavender-grey undertone, like Dr. Jart BB Creams. I love that cool tone. It had an amazing consistency. It covered well, and made my face feel very soft. It almost smells and feels like an elegant light dessert. I read that the creator is inspired by her culinary background. It must be the raspberry oil that made the cream smell so good. Beauty Heroes is really a first class sub box! Harvey Prince Hello Conditioner deluxe sample - This was a holy grail product for my hair! I have long hair and it gets awful tangles! It gets masses of giant tangles that are impossible to get out. I was able to detangle my hair with this. It was a miracle. I made note of the ingredients: almond, coconut, argan and jojoba oil, keratin, silk, and soy protein. Bubbly Belle 4th of July Bath Bomb - It was a white cloud that melted into red, white, and blue streams. Degree deodorant Gave away one full size and 2 deluxe sample hair products to a friend. My next little mini project is to use up my samples remaining from the Sisley Beauty Subscription. I still have two bags coming in the mail from the six month subscription I got before I went back on No Buy, as well as several minis remaining from the past months. It will be really nice to use them up. At the same time I will pay off my $200.00 credit card.
  12. There's a really nice new shopping center opening by me, and today I went to the new Five Below store. I loved the store. It was my first time visiting a Five Below. They had nice bath and body products, makeup brushes and tools, facial masques - a beauty shopaholic's dream. I was good and did not get any beauty products! I just got a pack of white chocolate M&Ms [the candy section is awesome also] and a Hint watermelon water. The watermelon water my body probably needs a lot more than any spa products! I was so good; I am proud of myself.
  13. I paid off my credit card yesterday, with a $70.00 payment. Next goal is to pay off a credit card with $200.00 balance. I'm hoping to pay it off by the end of August.
  14. Shop Miss A is good - it is an online store with beauty products for one dollar.
