As soon as one promises not to do something, it becomes the one thing above all others that one most wishes to do.
The above quote is why I don’t believe in ‘no buys’ as they instantly make you want that make up product. I also see girls on YT that do "No Buys" and they do big hauls before and after their No Buys and I wonder, what was the point? During their no buys they continually talk about 'what they want to buy'. It seems they just pull in or procrastinate on their buying for a short period of time without really changing anything???
I have been doing a “Use Up B.U.S. (Back Up Stash)”. Making the list of my B.U.S. and focusing on what I “have” vs focusing on what I “want” (and can’t buy) has proved very effective for me. I have told myself that I can buy whatever I want but, when I look at my list I quickly lose the urge to buy anything. I focus on what I have.
What do you find works for you when you want to cut down on the amount of products that you have?
