Coping with a Shopping Addiction

2 Week update on my No-Buy:

Today I went grocery shopping for the week. I spent $40 when my budget is $50. I wanted to make up for the drinks I had on Saturday. So I’m back on top of my food budget.

The only thing I bought that I maybe shouldn’t have was a bottle of nail polish last week. BUT, I bought that cause I decided to cut out pedicures for the rest of the year. The nail polish is for my toes and should last me the rest of the year. I’ll save $150 not getting pedicures for the rest of the year.

Today I bought some reusable straws for $5 off Amazon, those were legal on my No-Buy because they replaced the plastic straws I’ve been using. Plus reusable straws are better for the environment.

One of my coping mechanisms to aid me in my No-Buy is putting things on my Amazon Wishlist instead. So next year if I really still want some of that stuff I would have bought impulsively, I can get it next year off my Wishlist.
