90 Day No Buy Challenge

Jesus take the wheel.  My beauty spending has gotten out of control!  How do you know when you have a slight problem?  When you start accumulating boxed products in random places (purses, gym bags, makeup storage, etc).  I have so many eyeshadow palette refills that still haven't seen the palette!  Yeah, it's like I keep buying and buying, but failing in actually trying and using the products (on a consistent basis).  So, for the next 90 days, I am on a no buy mission.  Sure, I might miss out on some of the makeup collections but really, I have more than enough makeup to keep me busy.  The same goes for hair products.  I seriously doubt some new fab conditioner will be limited edition and disappear forever during this 90 day challenge.

Oh, and in case you're wondering why I chose 90 days?  Well, I'm on track for a raise in June, which I should hopefully "see" in July!  But, I'm also hoping that this challenge will help me to foster better spending habits and fiscal responsibility.

So, have you ever done a "no buy" challenge?  What tips do you have to resist the urge to splurge?

Until next time, be well...


  1. This is an awesome idea! I may actually join you. :-) I actually gave up unnecessary spending for the Lenten season last year.

  2. @ Diva Style That sounds great! Come on! Any tips for resisting the urge to buy...especially during some really good sales???
