No buy / Low buy Update – Ulta Haul

I guess I should start out by just saying – I broke the no buy/low buy. Im going to flatly state that I could not pass up a great deal.

As you might know, Ulta does “21 Days of Beauty” a couple times a year, and there are some fantastic deals in that sale. And, even though there were multiple items I wanted in that sale, I decided to pass them up for one of their ‘Hot Buys”.

As you can see by the photo below, I decided to pick up the Tarte Maracuja Oil because it was $28. Its normally $48 and I really couldn’t pass the deal up. I would be picking this product up in a couple of months, so its best to get it almost half off if I could.

I wanted to try out the Almay Velvet Cream Shadows and they were buy one, get one half off, (One was $7.99 and the other was $4.00) so I got the two pictured below.

I also needed to purchase the Ulta shadow in Petite. I use this to set my eye primer and I have a decent dip in the one Im using and it was $4.00 (its usually $8.00).

My total came to $43.99. I used an Ulta coupon for $3.50 off and used $6.00 in points bringing my order to $42.51 with taxes and shipping.

After looking thru what I spent last year at this time, I can say that I am definitely spending less this year.

I am planning to purchase some things around June (my birthday month) but other than that, I think Im going to do considerably better on spending this year!

Are you doing a No buy / Low buy? Have you stuck to it?

One last haul of 2018

I decided to do a no-buy next year. I will only be repurchasing items I truly run out of.

So, I did one last haul.

The following photo does not show the makeup items I purchased as gifts for others, nor does it show the curling iron I just purchased to replace one that broke last year.

Will you be joining in on a year long no-buy?
