Current Panning Projects

Hello! Today I’d like to share the Project Pan projects I am currently working on. At the beginning of this year, I continued a rolling project pan, similar to last year’s. I hadn’t limited the project to a certain number of items, which made me start feeling like things weren’t as structured as I wanted.

In mid-June, I decided to regroup and better focus my projects – yes, multiple – and better defined my panning goals. Below I am giving a sort of introduction to each project, and a few notes on why I added the products to each project.

Project 1: 10 in 2019

  • Time Period: Starting June 11, will regroup at the end of 2019…or whenever I want.
  • Item Limit: Focusing on 10 products at a time.
  • Set or Rolling?: Rolling. Allowed 2 days to add new item after finishing one.

What I Didn’t Buy – Low Buy 2019

Today, I am sharing my list of the items I did not buy so far this year throughout my low buy. I also have a post on what I have purchased, as well as a breakdown of my progress on my low buy so far, so please check those out as well! This will not be a list of items I don’t even want (A.K.A. an anti-haul), but instead will be a list of products I resisted purchasing.

First up, an item I decided to pass on, even though it was on the “approved” list for my low buy:Read More »

June 2019 Favorites

Today, I’m going to share my favorite products that I used in the month of June. Unless I have any strong opinions about an item, I will just be listing and linking it, just to keep things short and sweet. This list is a combination of my favorite items used, as well as the most-used products in a given category – whether or not they were my favorite.Read More »

What I Bought This Year – Low Buy 2019

Hello again! Last time, I shared my rules and an overview of my progress on my 2019 Low Buy. Today, I’d like to share the items that have been worth the purchase. I’m going to break down my purchases based on the category they fall into, so first – here’s a quick review of the rules:

  1. No purchases until October 31 (or the fall VIB sale) except…
  2. Replacements
  3. Skin health/protection products
  4. Things bought with gift cards (+ up to $10 to round it out)
  5. Gifts for others

I’ve included the prices that I paid in each listing, along with some notes about how I feel about the purchase. These prices take into account tax, shipping, and any coupons or discounts I received on the item(s).

My 2019 Low Buy

Well hello again! One year after my last entry, I’ve gotten the itch to write a few new blog posts about some projects I’ve been working on.

2019 has been called The Year of the No Buy, and I chose to take part in that as well after attempting a low buy last year. This year, I really worked to think of what rules are truly realistic to my needs and based on the items I bought in 2018. Last year, my rules were honestly more strict, but I have been significantly more successful in this second attempt.
