I am not religious, but I decided to try going on a no-buy for the duration of Lent. I didn’t buy anything except food (and uh, booze)! It was pretty easy at first, since it’s not like I shop every day or anything. Plus I had made a couple online purchases before Lent started, so I still had a few things to look forward to getting, haha. It was so hard to pass up all the sales though! But it really forced me take a step back and evaluate what would have been an impulse purchase, rather than something I’d actually use regularly.
It also made me realize how much stuff I already have! Seriously. I have a lot of stuff. Especially makeup! I have so many eye shadow samples that I honestly think I won’t need to buy any for the rest of my life. My new goal is to finish at least ten of them before I let myself even consider getting any more.
ANYWAY when my no-buy ended I went on a bit of a spree x: I did mostly stick to picking up basics/essentials, like socks and underwear haha. But I did convince myself I deserved a reward 😛 So this is the slightly more interesting stuff!
