I have decided that on January 1st, 2015 that I will undertake a 100 day no-buy challenge. My stash is monstrous, it needs to be used, and I need to stop the mentality of "saving it for something special". My Momma and Ninny always saved things for something special, when Ninny died all her nicest things were untouched, unused. My Momma is bedridden and disabled, this year I am going to use her best china, crystal, and silver for the holidays. They have never been used since purchased back in 1962, two years before I was born! This stops with me. I am special enough to use my nice things. I will not worry about "messing it up", makeup is meant to be used, not treated as a genuine Faberge egg for Pete's sake! I've started using my best perfumes on a daily basis already and it makes me so happy! My rules will be: 1.No beauty/makeup purchases whatsoever for 100 days, commencing on Jan 1, 2015 2. Current subscriptions can be kept, but no new subs can be added. 3. Can participate in Circular Swaps or Secret Exchanges 4. Can only purchase basic hygiene items, toothpaste, deodorant, Cetaphil Cleanser when they run out. 5. Use things from my stash daily, even if I am just staying at home. I would love to have company and friends on this journey. Whether you want to do the challenge, or just give support, I hope people will join this thread. If you want to be in the challenge, please pledge yourself!
