Greetings from the Dark Side!
And welcome to Week 1 of my No-Buy!
Week 1 (January 7th-January 13th) is the first week of my Project No-Buy, a project to reduce spending on beauty products and to go through a system of rewards in order to save money in order to buy new products. If you haven't check it out yet, go to my introduction post of this for a detailed account of this project. But let's see how my No-Buy has been so far!
Week 1's Rewards
Let's start by adding up any rewards from this past week.
1) Weekly goals:
Week 1 did not have any weekly goals so that is $0 for this week. (+$0)
I just started my quarter, and I have not had any assignments yet. (+$0)
This week I read:
-The Catcher In the Rye, 214 pages (+$7)
-Compilations of history of texts in Latin America, 45 pages (+5)
Money earned for Reading: +$12
The words that I picked for this week were words in Spanish that came from my readings that I did not know. The five words are:
-amerindias (indigenous American/native American
-baluarte (citadel/ stronghold)
I was actually able to learn these really well because they came up on my readings very often! ^_^
Money earned from language learning: +$5
I have 1 empty products this week, my Paula's Choice BHA Resist 9. I love this stuff! I actually need to re-purchase this >_> but maybe I'll wait since I have other skin care products to use.
Money earned from empties: +$1
I managed to have a good start on my No-Buy! I have not purchased anything since I posted my No-Buy! Yay! As I mentioned on my FB, my mother offered to buy the new Shiro Cosmetics Hobbit collection for me as a late Christmas present. At first I thought this might go against my No-Buy, but many of you insisted that if it is a present, then it is okay. :) So no money reduced for breaking my no-buy!
TOTAL REWARD MONEY EARNED WEEK 1: $12+$5+$1= $18!
Money in my MAKE-UP BANK: $18
Week 2: Weekly Goals
These two goals are my weekly goals for next week. These two goals must be completed by next Sunday in order for me to earn reward money.
Goal #1: I will post at least one entry on my blog every single day of the week. At least two of those posts must be makeup looks/tutorials. I will have at least one makeup review and one skin care review.
Goal #2: I will go to class everyday and be on time. I will have all my homework and readings done at least the night before my class. I will not get behind on my work.
Join me next Sunday for a Week 2 update :) Also, notice that starting Monday January 14, I have $18 to spend =3 Woo hoo!
If you are doing a No-Buy, how is yours going? :D
