After my no-buy started I arranged a bunch of swaps, 5 to be exact... plus I bought 3 for Leslie because she is just awesome.
Also this month I bought 4 polishes for my own giveaway, but that was before the almost-no-buy.
Total # of bottles acquired this month: 50 (+4 frankens)
Total # of bottles acquired for me: 36 (+1 franken)
Total # of bottles for me that I paid for: 30
Yes! 31 days in May and 30 bottles I bought for myself! I made my goal! Hahaha.
May I also point out that 13 of them are minis and 4 were for frankening. AND I got most of them on sale.
(But the price I paid for DS Original kinda ruins it...)
So my almost-no-buy was pretty successful. I only bought one new shade for myself after I started it.
I consider the blacks to be a staple, so I don't mind buying them. And they are less than $2.
And the franken supplies, also less than $2 each. So that's not a big deal.
But... despite not buying much for myself in the no buy, I bought a lot for swaps, plus I had to ship them which cost $26. So I did good with my own spending but not good on spending for others. Which I guess is technically spending on me because I am getting polishes in return. Hah.
Seems like I might also have to go on a no-swap... haha. But more people are asking and it is sooooo hard to resist.
I am buying polishes for one more swap and then I am done for a while, besides maybe a few more bottles of Rebecca Likes Cupcakes for those lovelies who are asking.
I think I might do a new collection post once all my swaps and my giveaway goodies arrive. Or maybe I'll wait until I get my helmer in August so it can be a storage post too.
Or maybe it would be funnier to show you how badly I am overflowing from my current storage.
Oh helmer, you are so close but so far away.
Here's to a successful almost-no-buy June!
I will be buying some for my final swap, and buying very few if any for myself.
Did anyone read all that rambling I just did? Lol.
