At the beginning of the year I posted a list ofthings I didn't need to buy any more, at least until I used up what I currently have on hand.
So far so good: I haven't bought any. Woohoo!!! I might have to buysome new sunscreen in case what I have expired, but that's it so far.
Ditto the lip balm! I actually used up a tube to the very end without losing it. Believe me, it's a feat...
Not a single new pen all year! I have bought mini-sharpies for DH to use at work, but that's it.
None here either! But, I did buy a Day Timer kinda thing that I can keep notebooks in, along with a calendar and contact list. This way, I can carry around the notebooks I have all to meetings etc without looking utterly disheveled.
Bought a pair of brown boots and black heels in February, but have set aside 4 pairs of shoes for Goodwill to make up for the 2 pair I brought into the house. Not too bad, seeing as I had 'allowed' myself hiking boots, dress boots, and a pair of heels in the original post...
Nail Polish and Care
Nope, none! Still need to throw out the stuff I have, though, since all it does is take up space.
Bought a new mascara. Still not satisfied, but for a buck at Dollar Tree it's still not a bad deal: easier to put on than the $5 a tube Mabelline stuff, and looks better too. Just doesn't stay on my lashes real well: makes me look slightly racoonish after 8 hours. Bah!
