Banning my self from buying any more!

Post  Charlilouise on Sun Jul 14, 2013 7:23 am

I'm going to put myself on a no buy for the rest of July and August.
I've got three orders I'm waiting on now.
2 polishes from Born Pretty
4 from a lady on Facebook.....my first Lynderella!!
And 3 from the Dance Legends group buy.

Add those to the 500+ that I have.........I really shouldn't need any more?!?!

Maybe we need a dedicated 'no buy support' thread. I keep thinking about a no buy, but my 'low buy' didn't go so well......Embarassed (not my fault really - I hadn't factored in my sister's trip to the US).
I might try one in September (going back to Holland in August - Douglas, Sephora etc....). Is it OK to clear your 'want' list before the no buy and have a little bender afterwards?

I can't go out or near anything with internet access! My OH joked that we had to go shopping at Lidl because they're the only place with no polish and we went and they had polish!!!!!

That's a good idea! And definitely ok to clear your want list first!

Online shopping is really dangerous! It's so quick and easy it doesn't feel like I'm spending "real" money. Just Eat is my massive vice but buying polish is nummber 2. I'm actually going to check out if there's some kind of block I can put on using my card online.

I'm on a no buy till at least Sept, lasted 3 weeks so far, it feels really good using nail polish for the second time and not trying on those newly bought ones.

You can do it!

I am in my third no buy this year.

First was 3 months I think then I had a month of buying then nearly two months of no buy until I bought some polishes from Princess Sossidge and now I am on a no buy again since end of June so halfway through first month .

I am lucky as there really is nothing I want at the moment as I boughtt some of the new Barry M gellies and I got the models own splash collection from Princess Sossidge which was my summer lemming .
