Hello,

I've been quietly lurking around this thread since it started, thinking that I have things under control...but no..

 

I'm admitting I'm an addict...today and yesterday, in a frantic attempt to make use of the $15 off code I bought four of the older boxes that I was previously on the fence (opening four new accounts). I now have a total of 7 accounts, using three different mailing addresses. I know its terrible of me :blush: .

 

My total boxes is just under 50 now, not that I have any attempt to break records..but gawd..meme keeps coming out with boxes that are so interesting...I'm waiting with anticipation to see what else they will tempt me with once this code expires..

 

There, I had to get that out....

 

PS I have an excel sheet inventory of all my products including manufacturing/expiring dates, brand new/in use, save/gift. I do plan to use all my products or gift it, so nothing will go to waste (I hope :rolleyes:  ).

this seems to be a very unique box tbh. it seems to feed addiction as all boxes are very different. it doesn't help that the whole grain, milk and oriental medicine boxes totally rocked.

Hi and welcome memeaddict ^_^ 

Iknow what you mean.. It's so hard when they come out with all these interesting themes for the boxes. I know the urge to collect them all myself, and it's REALLY hard not to. 

 

Btw, it's so clever of you to do the excel sheet, I have no idea when my items will go bad etc. I just make a lucky guess >.< But I try to use up for instance a eyeliner before opening a new one.

I know it is hard to resist buying more boxes. I am usually better at resisting when there is no amazing promo code and free points.

Guys, since I posted my mini thinking about things thread I've been SO GOOD!  I am trying to stick to my plan of only buying the numbered global editions.  I bought 16 but with the 15 dollar off code.  The boxes launching haven't been super interesting for me.  I must admit I LOVE the following box ideas:

  • Vitamin Care
  • Hair and Body 3
  • Superfood
  • Smile Care
  • Cleansing
  • Girls Night Out
  • Hand and Nail Care

BUT none of them are on my needs list except maybe cleansing :/.  However I don't really need cleansing because my daily face cleansing ritual is going strong and making my skin look FREAKIN AWESOME and I am super happy with it.  The only one that really is missing from my routine is smile care but I'd mainly be buying it in hope for some bamboo salt toothpaste.  (I still may cave)

 

I also really love my rosebox that I got and it's really incorporated itself into my routines nicely :)

I am definitely better without amazing promos.  Even for VIPs it is...not as good as it was previously.  Occasionally they'll give you some points for buying boxes but I miss free 10 point days.

Like several others I've been quietly lurking about the Memebox forums for a bit now looking for spoilers and seeing what this Memebox craze is all about and then something happened. Something dreadful. I'll admit that it started with only one box that I wasn't going to see for two long months but within a day it had turned into three and within three days it had turned into six boxes. I think you're starting to get the picture...

 

It's now been a little over two long weeks and I have about 20 boxes coming. I don't think that includes the three I ordered just for points this morning before work. So bad! By the way, I like the spreadsheet idea above, good one! In my mind I've rationalized it out by telling myself that I will gift some items because I'm sure there must be some duplicates and I've only got so much face and body and lots of females in the family....but you all know who I bought it for. My only saving grace is I do make gift baskets often. Yes, this will be my excuse. :)

I miss the free 10 points as well. Hope they have another promo like that again.

Trying to stay strong and not get the Hand and Nail and F/W Colors box! I do not need them, I do not need them. 

You probably don't! Stay strong :)

Okay, I've only been at this for about a month, but I already need an intervention! 

 

I think my game plan going forward is to only order the Global numbered boxes (as they seem to have the best variety), maybe an occasional Luckybox, and only order the themed boxes that I think I would die if I missed out on, LOL!  Then  I would just order other "must have" products as needed.

 

I really need to stop this insanity!

I hear ya!!  I keep saying that too :D  If they keep coming out with K-style makeup boxes, diet boxes - I can resist.  I can resist on a Halloween box, Princess box, Witches box. 

 

If they come out with another foot box, spa box, scent box, some wonderful COFFEE themed box, I am all over that!  I have an addiction to food themed boxes!! lol

 

My Sept  & Oct schedule looks bare compared to my July and August one - lol

I have decided two bundles a month and the global box from now on. Unless I have points to buy another bundle that is.

I am ashamed to say that my box count is now up to 34, and I've only received 2 so far. Now, I am using everything in those boxes, but by the time I receive all that I've ordered, I will never be able to use up all the products I'm getting!

Andi - I did the same thing!  I am on a mission to USE all of the products (with the exceptions of the things I don't want - which I will put up on a trade list or gift).  My skin care routine has tripled!! lol  And my promise to myself is - no HOARDING.  Use the products.

 

It is time consuming.  I never knew how little I was doing until Memebox came around!!

My skincare routine has definitely increased as well, so hopefully that will help with the hoarding issues.  I have been really good about using everything that I've received so far, but I'm afraid I'm going to be inundated with boxes soon! 

 

I cleaned out a cabinet at the bottom of one of the bookshelves in my bedroom to store the boxes, and I thought about re-organizing the items by type (cleansers, masks, body care, hair care, etc.) and labeling the boxes accordingly, so it will be easier to use them up one at the time.  Although as OCD as I tend to be, I may better remember which items I have and need to use if I leave them organized by which box they came in!

Other than that I will suggest you use onion juice twice a week. You will see results in your hair growth. Along with this you should use coconut oil. For more guidance visit aysanhairdesign.com.au
