I've been back on No Buy and Project Use It Up for one week, and it's going great. Excellent start! More progress;

  • Registered for a dental insurance 
  • Used up TreSemme Hair Masque foil packet
  • Used up Mario Badescu eye cream foil packet
  • Used up Mary Kay Coal eye shadow sample card
  • Used up Yves Rocher Anti Age Global Essence foil packet
  • Used up Yon-Ka Cleansing Milk deluxe sample

Goals for last ten days of June, to get ready for No Buy July:

  • Use up some more little samples
  • Tomorrow is first day of summer; begin using Yves Rocher limited edition summer bath and body products from 2017 and 2018 (one perfumed hair mist, one body wash, one body scrub, two gel lotions)
  • Next payday, make minimum payment early for the credit card I want to pay off July

I'm still on No Buy Project Use It Up and so glad to be back. Some people go on a one year No Buy and write a book about it, or have a YouTube video series, and at the end of the year, all their problems are resolved, everything has a perfect ending with a bow on top. I don't find that the case for me. I finished a one year No Buy, but it was not enough to achieve all my goals. For me, it has to be a way of life, all the time!

On the other hand, I feel it did me good to take a break and get some new things. Now I have come back to the No Buy refreshed and with new things to enjoy using up. I am so happy that during the six month break from being on No Buy, I stopped myself from opening a lot of new charge accounts. I started to open several, but then I closed them right away; I just couldn't let myself do it. So the No Buy changed my behavior in that area.

I am a perfectionist who wants everything to be in a straight line, perfect, black and white, no shades of grey. But now I'm learning that it's okay to fall off the No Buy wagon, and then come back. That is a breakthrough.

I have now completed two weeks on my No Buy! 

  • Used up Sisley Eye Masque foil packet 
  • Used up Yves Rocher Elixir Jeunesse Day Cream foil packet
  • Used up Yves Rocher Riche Creme Day Cream foil packet 
  • Used up Avene cleansing milk deluxe sample

I also got a raise last week, so I feel God has blessed this new plan! I may get another raise in August! I paid another $30.00 of the credit card I am trying to pay off. $70.00 left to pay. 

I received four packages that were purchased before I went on No Buy. I got some lovely nude lipsticks, and my Sisley sub box. 

I am overall very happy with my plan thus far!

    • Motivating individuals implies getting individuals to perform certain activities that will contribute to a specific and real goal. If you need to motivate people to do something they don't want to do, you should propose something they want as a prize leader motivation. For instance, take trainers. What they use to talk to their teams in half-time is motive. Despite the reality that they might be too exhausted and rejected, they want the teams to come home to the ground energized and concentrated. The prize would be a win in this situation.
    • I don't think that this way of study is really difficult. It requires talent and a taste of aesthetics. I don't even know what to advise. Most students feel okay with help from https://rapidessay.com/check-paper-for-plagiarism.html but you have another case.
    • Everyone has different skin type and for every skin type theres different makeup. So back to square one One should know their skin type I got to know about my skin type from this article check it. https://www.bebeautiful.in/all-things-skin/everyday/determine-your-skin-type
    • It all depends on what exactly you will do. In order to lose 10 pounds you need to change your diet and begin to work out. If you are in addition to training more active, then you will lose this weight faster, if you only train or only change the diet, the weight loss will take longer. I lost 5 pounds when I started walking more and began to eat less carbohydrates. Now my weight suits me. I can sometimes eat junk food, but in order to be in shape I try to walk 10,000 steps every day. I found in this article  https://osxtips.net/apple-watch-count-steps/ how to change the settings of my apple watch so that they count my steps. It really helps me keep an eye on my weight and well-being. In order to lose weight you need to make an effort, but even harder to keep your shape.
    • How many kilos do you want to lose? If you look at your photos, you look great, if you want to be in shape, then you just need to find a fitness class or start going to the gym. If you don't want to go to the gym, then I recommend that you just be more active. Try to walk more often, arrange evening walks, while the weather is warm. I try to walk 10,000 steps a day. My apple clock helps me in this. I found in this article  https://osxtips.net/apple-watch-count-steps/ how to set up my watch so that they count my steps.  It really helps to stay in shape.
