No Buy July update!

So we've made it half way through the month! Yay! I am happy to say that i haven't purchased ANY of the banned items. Now the temptation has been there, but that's never going to go away. I must confess, it is quite easy to not buy anything if you don't go to stores. So basically I have been avoiding all stores with the banned items or at least avoiding those departments. Online "shopping" has been a little bit harder, its just so easy to fill up a "cart" and buy with a click of a button. Luckily, nothing has been ordered!

But damn those stupid racks by the checkout counters at major stores!

I was in Wal-Mart grabbing a few groceries, waiting in line to check out when I spotted the Burt’s Bees lip balm! *heavenly song* I’m addicted to this stuff! Its a must in my bedtime routine and always in my purse! Well, my last tube was chewed up by my dog. I was not a happy owner. GRR! So I grabbed for a new yellow tube and put it on the counter. Last minute impulse buy! *beep beep* the alarm went off in my head and I put it right back! I have other lip balms that work just as well and don't need another one for a price of $2.87. Temptation resisted again.

Are you a impulse buyer? What can’t you resist?

Stay tuned for more No Buy July!

  1. I LOVE Burt's Bees stuff too! Back in June they were celebrating their 25th anniversary and for 25 days you could try to win a free lip balm. I got my coupon for it the other day..I was so happy! Save 3 bucks for something else I might need.
