During a post on Friday I mentioned that I would put myself on product probation. During this period which will last for who knows how long, I will not purchase any products until my supplies completely run out. This product free period would allow me to catch up on all of the posts that I am backed up on as well as allow me an opportunity to get more space since my current product area is EXPLODING. I was so proud of myself because I knew that I had everything that I could possible need in my home so I didn’t step foot into a store. I didn’t make a single product related purchase all weekend. Hey probation is going to be a breeze I thought, until I remembered that on Saturday I placed an online Aveda order. I ordered the Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing shampoo and conditioner since Just Wondering raved about it in one of the comment sections on my blog. I don’t even need this so why do I feel the need to try it, I am so annoyed with myself. I also ordered the large Damage Remedy treatment even though my current supply is more than half full. Then I made my way over to drugstore.com to order that Giovanni cocoa body scrub that DE and Justme spoke about.
Probation is no walk in the park, but in true Frugalista style I may document how much money I am saving by not making as many purchases as usual.
