I'm going on a no-buy until at least January, possibly longer. Any hints/tips? I'm usually pretty good about these things but I've been really awful over the past month. I got a new job and I would really like to focus on building up my savings-- not buying makeup, clothes, or other pretty but ultimately not that important things. I'm budgeting for Christmas presents in December and a new pair of glasses in January, but other than that I want to try not to by anything at all, really. I'd love any advice from more seasoned and wise folk :) Thank you!
