Some of you reading this are probably thinking "Um, can these girls not control themselves? Why do they need a no buy month?" And in all honesty, our willpower and restraint from making little impulse purchases just isn't our strong suit...especially when it comes to the good 'ol red and white bulls-eye. An innocent trip to Target to pick up things like laundry detergent, deody and toilet paper results in us wondering how that new mascara, three bottles of nail polish and two pairs of jeans ended up in plastic bags in our backseat. Why can't we leave Target without spending at least double the amount of what we went in for? Why can't we quit you Target??

This month we're just going to have to learn how to avoid the temptations, build up our immunity to the marketing ploys of our favorite cosmetic brands and rework the clothes hanging in our closets to come up with fresh, new outfits. Besides, it helped that we got a lot of our frivolous spending out of our system in January, as you might have seen in our Forever 21 Haul and our Huge Beauty Haul...and there's one more still to come. After all of that shopping we knew that we were immediately going on house arrest until March 1st.
Anyone else on a no buy right now? Let us know and we can support each other. We'll be 100% totally honest and at the end of this month we'll let you guys know if we slipped up at all. You can also follow us on Instagram to see if we're behaving ourselves on a daily basis. We'll be using the hashtag, #nobuyFebruary, if you'd like to use it too. You can find us at JAYMEHLNC and MENDIHLNC.
Here's to a month of saving!
