Tip Tuesday - The 3 Month Waiting List @ Tuesday, December 27, 2016
Buy till you die, shop till you drop is not only the motto of consumerisum but also the industry I'm in, which depends in spending. In particular buying things you don't need. When it comes to make-up I often find myself wanting spur of the moment things, things I won't use more than once or twice. Like that concealer, it doesn't work unless you actually wear the full face make-up.
While we've always had a running 'want list' to wait till there's a sale, we came across this tip. The three month waiting list. Instead of buying cheap cotton on crap or any modern piece designed for a couple wears we invest in quality pieces. Same with perfume, sleep on it. But not too long, as a perfume I wanted and waited for, well they stopped making it.
Do you have a constantly updated wish list?

I love writing out wishlists, they are a good way to track what you actually want, and what was just an in the moment lust! I find it fun to read over my blog wishlists and check off the items I have picked up, and those I no longer want!

I bought a balloon lamp last night, a novelty. Whoops. Impuse buy, good thing Kmart has great policies! I'm working on a list of brands/shops that don't do returns on sale items. The $$$ clothing shops don't do refunds/exchanges often because girls buy clothes, wear them once and return them!
