Autumn Winter No Buy/Project Use it Up 9/23-12/31 2018

Recommended Posts

I put together my no buy/project use it up for the rest of the year. The idea here is to finish using up all items in some subcategories of products by December 31. This will make me less likely to want to buy new things, because that would set me back from finishing the subcategories by New Year's. 

Subcategory 1 - Finish Using Foil and Mini Rinse Out Conditioners

  1. rahua foil pack
  2. Herbal Essences Naked mini
  3. Rene Furterer Lumicia mini
  4. Oribe Gold Lust mini 

After using all of these, I will have just one full size conditioner, and six mini leave in hair products left. 

Subcategory 2 - Finish Using Foil and Mini Face Creams, Oils, and Serums

  1. Two Yves Rocher Sensitive Vegetal foils
  2. Two Yves Rocher Elixir Jeunesse foils
  3. Dior Capture Youth Serum foil
  4. Clinique 3 Step foil sample set
  5. Chanel Hydra Beauty foil
  6. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence mini
  7. Avene Hydrance Serum mini
  8. Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre mini 
  9. Mirenesse Powerlift Concentrate mini - use with Mirenesse CC Cream mini
  10. Yves Rocher Anti Age Globale mini
  11. Yves Rocher Serum Vegetal Wrinkles and Firmness Serum mini - use with Serum Vegetal toner
  12. Yves Rocher Wrinkles and Radiance Smoothing Care mini - use with Serum Vegetal toner
  13. Yves Rocher Sensitive Vegetal mini
  14. Poetic Blend Ghost Oil mini
  15. Evologie Intensive Blemish Serum mini
  16. Marula Oil mini
  17. Clark's Botanicals Day Cream mini

After using all of these, I will have only two full sized face creams left, so will be almost completely finished using up this product category! 

Subcategory 3 - Mary Kay "MK Signature" single eye shadow sample cards

  1. Rose Mist
  2. Sheer Pink
  3. Storm
  4. Sugarplum
  5. Tropical Sun
  6. Vintage Violet
  7. Whipped Cocoa (two cards)
  8. Whisper Pink 

After using all of these, I will have only a few duo and trio sample cards left in the MK Signature line. Then, I can begin working on my Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color sample cards. 

Subcategory 4 - mini shower gels 

I only have one left - Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds. 

Subcategory 5 - Holiday Limited Edition shower gels

I have two: Yves Rocher 2016 holiday collection Clementine and Spices (almost gone), and Cranberry and Almond 

After I finish category 4 and 5, I can proceed with using my shower gels - one of the largest parts of my collection, in 2019. 

Also: pay off credit card $500.54.

If I can accomplish all of this by December 31, I will begin 2019 in an excellent way.

    • End of the summer no buy today; autumn equinox tonight. How was the summer for me? I have to admit that summer, with the weather being too hot to enjoy, and shopping and entertainment spending not allowed, did get rather dull when I was not working! But though I was bored, I did not crack and shop just to occupy time. Sometimes I did eat too much when bored on weekends. I hope autumn will be busier, cooler, and more fun for me.  My little boredom was worth it, however.  I realized I've gone through some psychological progress. At the start of the year, I wanted to pay one debt off each month. I managed to meet my goal on average until June. I loved the fast progress I was making. But in June, expenses got higher unexpectedly. I had to redraw my plan and shoot for a seasonal goal. At the start, I didn't know if I'd even be able to pay my credit card off by end of summer. But I got good support here, and I did it! I've conditioned myself for a longer haul.  I've stuck with no buy/project use it up longer than ever before, and I am seeing benefits I never did before. I feel myself turning a corner. I still found myself with a little vestige of my old compulsive beauty shopping: the impulse to hoard samples and free gifts. I used buying replacement items to justify this, often paying extra for the needed item to get free things. For example, I got expensive Chanel cotton pads to get samples and gift packaging, when I might have gone to the supermarket and purchased a nice pack of Swisspers. I felt myself starting to overdo on this, and even dreamed of relapsing. But then, I realized I am in sight of finishing my extra hair and skin care stash, maybe by the end of this year, or early next year! I've never been close to finishing that much before. Gradually, I am experiencing extra space and simplicity in my hair and skin care shelves, and I enjoy the feeling. Now, the thought of filling my shopping cart with samples and extras makes me anxious, as it will only set me back! I think this is progress. In the past, I've done massive decluttering to try and sort out my excess beauty shopping. I decluttered way too much, and I regret it. I read that one can be a compulsive declutterer as well as a compulsive hoarder, and I truly was. Some of my decluttering episodes were really, really bad, and I truly regret them. I WANT THOSE THINGS BACK FOR PROJECT PAN! But the decluttering never helped me change as the long slow hard work of using things up for nine months seems to be doing. At the same time, I have not gone from beauty hoarder to beauty minimalist overnight. Other parts of my beauty collection (makeup, bath and body, perfume), are still large, so I have that comforting feeling of having extras in those areas. I would feel a bit insecure if all my things were used up at once, and then I would have to shop for a lot!  This is where I am now, and ready to carry on. I hope autumn will be even better than summer.
