No Buy Week 1: What did I purchase?

January 2: I bought an oversized mirror that is taller than me for $65 from Home Goods. I wanted something much bigger than the full length mirror I got for $15 from Target a couple years ago. The original reason I bought this new mirror was so I can take Instagram pics of my outfits every day. The problem is this mirror didn’t help, the pictures still look bad because of my background, so that sucks. I didn’t feel like taking the mirror back, I already threw away all the tags and stuff and it’s heavy to get into my car. Anyway so the importance of Instagram (and YouTube) is that I need to be more consistent in posting so that I can get more followers and subscribers. If I can get more followers/subscribers I can make money off my social media. Apparently consistency is the key. I need to be posting on Instagram almost every day and on YouTube every week. *Sigh*, I can only commit to posting on Youtube every month. I will start there this year, then maybe next year I can move to posting twice a month.

January 3: I bought groceries and somehow spent over my weekly budget of $75 ($79)  and a HUGE thing of Charmin toilet tissue ($29), and some light bulbs ($5)

January 3: I sent my mom back the $50 she loaned me for New Years Eve partying, I also paid all my bills (such as rent, credit card minimums, etc..)

January 6: I spent $20 getting my tragus piercing fixed and on the silver hoop I had placed there by the piercer

January 6: I bought multivitamin gummies, fiber gummies and B-complex vitamins, all for $43   As a vegetarian I have to take ALOT of vitamins so that I am not deficient. I also take iron and D3. I found that I cannot swallow the huge multivitamins I bought which sucks cause they are really good and complete. Even breaking it up doesn’t help which is what I’ve been doing this far. I think a gummy will be better for me.


So as you see being on a No-Buy doesn’t mean I spend no money.
