Wish I could do a low buy. Never have been able to. I like limits. But deciding on the rules is difficult.

It's really difficult to do no buy or low buy.

I feel a new and better No Buy coming on. I do miss being on No Buy. I feel I will be back to it soon. I was SO sad I went on a binge after being good for an entire year. But I think that is why-after a year maybe I was tired and needed a rest. Also this is a tempting time for me. I got many things out of my system. I'll have that much more of nice things to use when I go on No Buy again. When the new things come in the mail, I put them away in the No Buy organization system, to reinforce to my mind that they are becoming part of the program. A little set back on the money, but I am going back to my second job in a few weeks, and it will be busy season. I can get caught up fast. If I can find it in my heart to forgive myself, not beat on myself, and know that I'm starting fresh and it will be even better. I do feel better on a No or Low Buy though, because I feel so overwhelmed just looking at things with no system. What I want is too endless. I can't take it. On my new No Buy I'm allowed to have one beauty sub. 

I have been keeping up with my use it up system, though! I am on the second to last face cream sample on the list I made one year ago! I am using the Marula Pure Beauty Oil from December 2017 Birchbox. After that I only have the Clark's Botanicals sample from the January 2018 Birchbox. Those were the last things I got before my No Buy began. 

Stay tuned for my new, better, and more fun No Buy 2019, which will start when I feel ready, soon I feel. 💔

It's always great to do some kind of reset @EdithS2. I'm sure you needed it! Can't wait to follow along to see what you will do! Thank you for being such a great inspiration!!

New plan I came up today is: I can be on No Buy for half of each day. That is, for half of each day, no thinking of cosmetics, no thinking of shopping. No browsing for things and looking at spoilers. No over thinking about No Buy, or watching No Buy videos in that time (sometimes they will make me want to buy the things they are panning, or anti hauling), or posting too much embarrassing stuff on here, or thinking and thinking of how I can have a plan to shop in a controlled way. Just think of/do other things for half the day. Then I can build up my confidence/resistance again. I've been thinking of shopping/not shopping all the time. I'm going to try to cut back, and distract myself. I can do it for half of each day. Piece of cake. 🎂

    • At first, I also rejuvenated my face with injections. For three procedures, almost nothing has changed: (Yes, and a little sick. But then I solved the problem in a different way, found on the website koreakos the suitable makeup for me and forgot about the shots. Many thanks to the site Koreakos. I found a lot of useful things on it. I recommend it to everyone!
    • Hello everyone, I am delighted and I hasten to share with you a wonderful Korean product - peeling for the feet, which produces stunning results. I ordered it on the site https://koreakos.com/body-4/foot-care/calmia-silky-perfect-foot-peeling. It is worth noting that the procedure was timed to the trip to the sea, and I wanted the heels in sandals to look wonderful. The product is really amazing, all the old skin has been peeled off, the heels have become very smooth and soft. I'm in love with this product!
    • Wow, so much I missed during my No Buy Year! I see Sephora has a new bag called Play! Smarts. Instead of a random set of samples, customers are given products around a particular theme. Also, an online class is provided. It just feels so organized, and maybe a way for me to actually use things from a box instead of letting them pile up. I wish I would have gotten the skin care bag for women over 50! Now on the site I see they had a complexion makeup bag, but it's out of stock. 😶 Does anyone know how often these come out? Makeup overwhelms me, so it would be good to practice on one area at a time. This speaks to me on many levels. I've actually never tried the regular Play! box. I got one of the luxe bags and really liked it. They had Peter Thomas Roth Hungarian Thermal Water Cream in the recent Play! Smarts box. I'm going to be looking out for the next one. Update: the classes can be seen on Sephora's YouTube channel. History of boxes so far: June 2018 - Glitter Eyes for Real Life - the inaugural box.  August 2018 - Superfoods Feed Your Face  September 2018 - Skincare by Age 30s, 40s, 50s.  October 2018 - K-Beauty: Skin Innovation October 2018 - Superfoods: Inner and Outer Beauty  November 2018 - Complexion Your Way: Dewey and Matte It should be time for a new one, no? Maybe it was test marketing for last year.  I recall when looking through magazines from the 1970s there was a mail order beauty club called The Butterfly Club. They would send a shipment for eye makeup the first time, lip makeup the next time, etc., so you could make yourself over little by little. I loved the ad. I have been unable to find the ad online. Anybody remember? I believe it was like Cosmetique Club.  I liked Birchbox Beta from 2017, where they sent kits based on a specific area. I got overwhelmed with all the choices they had, though. Could never decide which one to get, or should I get the regular box, or the curated box. 
    • I use Pinterest to look up vintage beauty ads from the 60s and 70s.
