No Buy July Is On!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm so excited that I have been back on No Buy and Project Use It Up since June 13. I m glad to be back. I am feeling strong for No Buy July! 

My Goals:

Pay off my smallest credit card. I've been making extra payments, so my balance is down to $70.00. 

Finish using foil pack samples in hair care, body care, and skin care categories. I have left to use: one hand cream foil packet, one face cleanser foil packet, four face cream foil packets (one almost done), and whatever foil pack samples are going to come in my Sisley box for July. 

I'll be getting a Beauty Heroes box and a Sisley box for this month that I paid for before my No Buy began, so I can enjoy these treats guilt free! 

Excited and looking forward to everything!

I paid off my credit card yesterday, with a $70.00 payment. Next goal is to pay off a credit card with $200.00 balance. I'm hoping to pay it off by the end of August.

There's a really nice new shopping center opening by me, and today I went to the new Five Below store. I loved the store. It was my first time visiting a Five Below. They had nice bath and body products, makeup brushes and tools, facial masques - a beauty shopaholic's dream. I was good and did not get any beauty products! I just got a pack of white chocolate M&Ms [the candy section is awesome also] and a Hint watermelon water. The watermelon water my body probably needs a lot more than any spa products! I was so good; I am proud of myself.

Way to go @EdithS2! I'm doing a no buy still too but ended up ordering a few things this past week and weekend. I needed a new deodorant but I ended up ordering a mascara and a lipstick too. I also bought 3 tops that were on clearance. I'm back on no buy again.

Well done to you, wish more people took up the no buy motion for a month and cleared off their debt or saved up a little 😉

Thank you for the support. It feels great to have the motivation back. It has been a month now - it was like a miracle - I was sitting in my room planning my bill payments one night and all of a sudden I found myself back in the No Buy zone! I finished the small goal of using up all my foil sample packets of hair care, skin care, and body care. That was enjoyable. Since my last post, I used up the following: 

  • Dermactin-TS Pore Cleansing Peeling Gel foil packet
  • Dermactin-TS Intensive Pore Sealing Moisturizer foil packet
  • Dermactin-TS Collagen Skin Serum foil packet 
  • Sisley hand cream foil packet 
  • Sisley Black Rose Oil foil packet
  • Graydon Skin Care Face Glow foil packet. That was a lovely foil packet! I really loved using it for the past week. I received it in my Beauty Heroes sub box. It is a tinted face cream. It has a lavender-grey undertone, like Dr. Jart BB Creams. I love that cool tone. It had an amazing consistency. It covered well, and made my face feel very soft. It almost smells and feels like an elegant light dessert. I read that the creator is inspired by her culinary background. It must be the raspberry oil that made the cream smell so good. Beauty Heroes is really a first class sub box! 
  • Harvey Prince Hello Conditioner deluxe sample - This was a holy grail product for my hair! I have long hair and it gets awful tangles! It gets masses of giant tangles that are impossible to get out. I was able to detangle my hair with this. It was a miracle. I made note of the ingredients: almond, coconut, argan and jojoba oil, keratin, silk, and soy protein. 
  • Bubbly Belle 4th of July Bath Bomb - It was a white cloud that melted into red, white, and blue streams. 
  • Degree deodorant
  • Gave away one full size and 2 deluxe sample hair products to a friend. 

My next little mini project is to use up my samples remaining from the Sisley Beauty Subscription. I still have two bags coming in the mail from the six month subscription I got before I went back on No Buy, as well as several minis remaining from the past months. It will be really nice to use them up. At the same time I will pay off my $200.00 credit card.

    • 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.
