No-Buy Check In for August

Recommended Posts

I'm on a forced no-buy frown.gif Ha. Meaning, I have no income rolling in so I have to save money regardless. And I told myself no makeup until Christmas money rolls in or if my parents give me school shopping $$$. Well, neither has came yet so, lol.

 

I did buy a couple of nail polishes because I don't have many selections - it was $8 for 3. And also ear phones because I always ruin mines. There went $20. frown.gif

Sigh. I might have to call the office tomorrow and tell them I'll be back working this year. Ha.

 

I miss spending carelessly. Haha.

But I got this debt to rid of so yeah :/

I have a $10 Target gift card coming soon from e-poll, so I know I will spend that on makeup. It's free, so I am not counting it lol.

 

I also need to replace my mascara. Mine is all clumpy, so I am going to hit a BOGO today.

I'm on day #4 of my no buy. I haven't spent any money on anything much less makeup so far. I'm determined to win this bet and also to prove to myself that I can have some self control. My bf reminds me everyday that I'm not going to win this bet. We'll just see about that. I've only had slight urges to buy things. The thing that's killing me is MAC, and their stupid collections that are popping up every other week. I was planning to get things for a few collections coming up, but I can't now. I especially wanted some of the MSF coming up in October. frown.gif Oh well, I'm winning this bet! tongue.gif

I ended up losing the bet and got a lecture from my mean boyfriend. tongue.gif He's such a dad sometimes. It's now been 25 hours since I bought anything. I'm really sad at sticking to my no buy. I also accidently gave this site address to my bf and he's harassing me about everything I've said about sticking to my no buy. He's such a meanie.

I've been doing good so far. I've almost made it a week without buying any cosmetic items. However, I'm craving something right now. I really want the 56 palette from Coastal Scents right now. I'm so bad. I never want anything until I see other people using it and creating great looks with a product. I've seen this product a bunch of times and never wanted it before. I really only want it for the blushes though because I've become obsessed with blushes. I'm sure the eyeshadows would be great too though because I really used my 88 palette for the first time yesterday and the colors were so vibrant and pretty. Sigh, I'm going to pass but it's hard. tongue.gif Out of curiosity, I took out all my blushes, and I have a good number of them, and I've only used one. :| lol, it's good when you put things into perspective cause it makes you realize that you don't need anything else.

I did good today. I had to stop by Rite Aid, because we are out of Ibuprofen and they had it on sale BOGOF. I took my husband with me for strength. biggrin.gif I left with only Ibuprofen!

Still doing good. I got a new mascara today, but it was free! My latest issue of Elle(I think?) had a coupon for a free mascara at the Estée Lauder counter. I got a sample of Double Wear.

Ugh. I think I have a serious problem with shopping, specifically for cosmetics. I don't know what's wrong with me. I think I'm using shopping as a way to make me happy right now because I've been depressed since I came home from college. I hate the fact that I'm stuck at home with my family, and I hate that I can't find a job (another reason for me not to shop). I made this big list of things I wanted to buy, and I just realized I absolutely do not have the money for this stuff right now. I need to snap myself out of it. I need to find a job, pay off my stinky debts, and save up money to move and figure out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life. I'm throwing away my list, stopping myself from going to makeup sites, and staying on my no buy. I need some self control! smile.gif

The last thing I bought for myself was a $10 bikini, because my boobs have gotten too enormous for my monokini. This month is almost over, so I know I'll be fine. Not really in NEED for any makeup anytime soon. I just need to budget out some cash for maternity wear because I'll probably be needing it soon.

    • Honestly as of recent, I’m loving Orea skin care, there products are natural and organic, cruelty free which is a must for me and they feel great and are so effective on my skin 
    • So I actually just received a package from this new skin care company called “Orea skin care ” and honestly my skin is glowing, there cleanser is soft and gentle and really tightens my pores, I’m 30 and compared to other cleansers I’ve used over the years this is one I would high recommend 
    • I don't think online games comes into sports activity. You need to correct your answer Mynni. However, I answer this question then for sure, I am a big fan of racket games. I was best at squash and tennis in school days. I also recently started playing squash again with my husband in doubles format after getting a good squash racket and reading the racquets reviews from here. I think females must play this kind of sports to improve their physical fitness. 
    • I just realized that it's been 5 years since I was sick. All those years I was only thinking of hospitals, doctors, pills and suffocating depression and no entertainment. Now that I am finally over it all, I am sitting at home not knowing where to push myself into. I used to love playing in Vegas casinos and actually I wouldn't mind if anybody from this forum keeps me a company once again. We could wear our best dresses, have a perfect make up (I know a cool celebrity make up artist!), book our flights and go. I tried to visit a few gambling threads here but they are so godlessly old! Dated 2007 or so. Back then people perhaps were playing not in casinos but with wooden sticks. Now the world so much changed and I feel so damn falling behind it. So what do you say? Anybody cares to visit a casino with me? We can visit a Titanic museum too if you wish. Or come to my house let's play backgammon at least. Let's get wasted! Let's feel the life!
    • I would discourage you from leaving the car in the street. People may steal side mirrors or puncture the tires just out of fun these days.
