June 2013 No/Low Buy Goals & Support

Recommended Posts

Rock on, Meaganola!  It's good that you identified what triggered you, and now you'll be able to avoid doing that much more easily.

 

I'm really proud that I didn't get any beauty products at the rummage sale!  There wasn't anything I wanted.  I just picked up some stuff (like new shoes) for my child, and I don't have a no-buy for that!

I was doing good, but fell off the wagon today. :(  I was at the mall and I bought a sephora microsmooth eyeshadow trio.

I think I did pretty well in June. I bought a bottle of nail polish remover and a bottle of eye make-up remover, both to replace bottles I had used up.

 

I bought 3 packages of nail strips. Not necessary, but fun and cheaper than getting a professional mani/pedi.

 

I also spent $10 on an Origins sampler pack that came with a $10 off your next purchase code. I used the $10 off code to get a full size Checks and Balances cleanser.

 

I got my Birchbox and Ipsy bag as well. I decided to cancel Ipsy. I have gotten it for the past 3 months and haven't really loved anything I've gotten, so I decided I would rather put $10 towards something I really want instead. So for now Birchbox is my only sub.

 

For July I am going to continue to buy very little and focus on using up what I have.

Way to go!  Sounds like you did great...and I don't consider buying replacements for necessities as a buy. ;)

I'm going to try to do a no buy for July. I went a bit off the deep end in June...darn BB points anyway. I wanted to say I'm seriously considering canceling my Ipsy too. I have subscribed for several months but the last three months I have ended up with either nothing I could use or maybe one thing. Seems I could buy something I want with than 10 dollars instead of getting disappointed each month. Maybe Ipsy and I just need to go on a break!

Then you should ask yourself 'Am I really going to use this? How much will I use it' Questions like that brings reasoning into play and you'll perhaps find out your really dont want it, but if you do you should buy it but dont exceed your limit.

 

I hope that helps hun!!!!

 

Thank you so Tinkabella hug.gif, Yes he was my baby, it is like losing a member of my family, the fact it was so sudden is the hardest to deal with. I haven't been online much since my last post so I'm so sorry for the late reply. 

 

Thanks so much for the great advice! I didn't buy any makeup or beauty products at all last month, I stayed strong! It was hard but I did it and just bought the batteries with recharger for my camera which I really needed.

It's completely understandable that you tried to make yourself feel better by buying make up. That's probably what I would do, too. But perhaps you can channel your energy into something more positive in order to take your mind off things? For example trying to focus on making a dent in your make up collection and finishing up half-used items etc. I've also spent ages making an Excel sheet for my low-buy progress. Just a thought, it's something that works for me.

 

Thank you so much Mauu hug.gifYes they are family, his sister is fine now, she seems to be over her anger issues, I was getting tired of cleaning her messes but I understood why she was doing it. I keep thinking I'm over it then I see something that makes me cry like those aspca commercials, I have to mute them or switch to another channel, but it's getting better.

 

Thank you for the very good advice! I like the channeling my energy into something more positive, I used to paint and I think that would be a good thing to do again, I don't think I'll ever make much of a dent in my make up collection...I have so much, but it's worth a try. I do apologize for not posting sooner but I haven't been online much until now.

    • According to what I think, when anyone or any organization is deciding to develop an app for themselves or their business they have two options. The first option would be to simply search for a good android app developers company or search and hire a freelance app developer. The second option, which I personally don’t suggest to anyone, is to develop the app in house by hiring someone skilled on your organization’s payroll. It is my personal opinion that one should outsource the app development to someone professional who has the required expertise. Do you think in your opinion that building an app in house would be a better option?
