It’s so easy in today’s world to end up spending way more than you need to on cosmetics. Especially when you have an active interest in cosmetics anyway. Now, I never spend more than I can afford, but I definitely spend more than I need to. So I have decided that throughout the month of September, I’m not going to buy ANY cosmetics, even if I run out.
Obviously this is just a fraction of my collection, but I’m not tall enough to take a picture of them all. *dies of embarrassment*
Anyway, I’m really enjoying the opportunity to focus on what I have, rather than what I want to try next, as well as making a bit of space in my flat! Also I’m hoping I’ll be able to do a good empties post at the end of the month so you can see which ones I enjoy and what I don’t. I have kind of a mixture of things I haven’t really used much but really like, some things that I didn’t love but didn’t hate enough to throw away, and things I just haven’t gotten to. So this should be a great opportunity to get through some of it! Who knows, depending on how low I get with my staple products I might keep going into October too…
Have you ever done a no-spend month? How did you find it?
