Jayme's No Buy

Recommended Posts

okay so i have wanted to go on a no buy for a long while, but have not been able to do it as of yet (i have a weakness for buying clothes). any way i figure if you guys are going to be holding me accountable i will be more likely to stick to a no buy.

 

so here are the rules as i am making them.

 

dont buy anything...

there are some exceptions though

 

makeup

  • i am only alowed to replace foundation and mascara. and only when i run out
personal hygene
  • shampoo conditioner and body wash can be replaced once i run out.
  • toothpaste and face wash can also be replaced
Clothes

  • no new clothes unless absolutely nessecary, and i must get rid of two items of clothing also
Other

  • try to cut down spending on going out to eat.. as in only eat out if it is a must. otherwise eat at home
  • for presents try making stuff using what is at home and if i dont have what i need i can spend 5 dollars to get what i do need.
i am sure i will make changes to this list but this is what i will be doing for now.

Good luck! It sounds like you're doing what I'm doing as well - trying the no buy for as much as possible.

 

Any thoughts on a time scale or are you doing it for as long as possible?

 

Don't forget to keep us updated!

for now it is just as long as possible,

i dont currently have a job. and i have loan payments of 300 a month so everytime i buy stuff it comes out of my savings, which i should be saving for the loan payments/not using at all. So i am trying really hard not to buy anything.

 

and yeah i saw yours thats where i got the idea for most of the rules, like replacing shampoo is okay. cause i didnt think of that and i would of gotten smelly after a while if i hadnt included that.

So my no buy just got hard, i got a job today. while i am happy that i will be making money it is going to be hard to not want to spend it. i am going to continue with my no buy so i can save money up to move out.

 

so i thought i would update you all to let you know that my income would now be greater than my spending.

Good luck!

 

I should go on a no buy too, my wallet needs it. It can't keep being this stimulated LOL.

 

Well it's harder than one might think, but I try to keep in mind that I don't want to become like the girl in "the secret dreamworld of a shopaholic" by sophie kinsella - that would be terrifying! *scared*
