I have some bad news. Some very bad news....I'm a shopaholic. Well, we all knew that. However, I recently stopped and thought about the amount of money I've been spending on beauty/fashion products lately and suffice to say, it's not okay. I'm also trying to pay my way through graduate school, and working in a restaurant just doesn't cut it sometimes. Tonight I had a look at my beauty vanity, and looked through the amount of products I have in there.
The conclusion: There are TOO many!
I need to cut it down. So, I have decided that for the month of April there will be no buying unnecessary things. If I need foundation or powder, I will buy those things, but no buying things I simply want or feel I need to have (when really I don't).
My goals for this month:
- Rediscover products.
- Give products I've only used a few times more of a chance.
- Try to hit pan on 5 products.
- Review products I already have.
- No getting sucked in by coupons/ special offers!
- Save some money!
Sometimes I get lost in a sea of new/ exclusive products, and I feel the need to have it all! However, when you look at the ridiculous amount of eyeshadow I have, there is no way I will ever get through it all. It's time to stop feeling the need to have the latest product before trying to get through something I already have. Chances are, the product will be there in a month or so, and I can buy it then.
Wish me luck beauties. Will you embark on this journey with me? Let me know in a comment!
