Well this isn’t the post I thought I was going to write today. I knew that this Black Friday was going to be a little different for me. Which meant I decided to ignore all of the deals and post content as usual. That was until I started to see deals; everywhere. I found myself browsing different websites, just to see what was out there. Until I reminded myself that I’m not shopping the Black Friday sales, and here’s why.
Also just a little disclaimer that I’m not slamming the sales or anyone who is using them. I know that the sales can be a great time to get an amazing deal and if you’re purchasing; I’m looking forward to the haul! I am in no way trying to make anyone feel bad for shopping or using the deals. It’s just that this year is going to be different for me, and I thought I’d share.
This is Why I’m Not Shopping The Black Friday Sales.
I Can’t Afford It
If you saw my October Favourites then you will know that Jake and I have had an offer approved on a house. Which has meant that I’ve had to put money aside for solicitors and surveyors and I can’t justify buying new makeup at this time. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the deposit.
I Need to Buy Other Things
In relation to the last point, I need to buy things for the house. So instead of looking at makeup sales, I’m on Curry’s looking for a washing machine. I wish I was joking. It might be practical, but it’s not as fun as shopping for makeup.
I Don’t Need More Makeup
I’m on a low buy because my makeup collection is a little out of control. Which means that I don’t need anything new. I have enough makeup to last me a long time, and I know that if I buy anything then I’m going to struggle to use it. As I’m realising now, makeup lasts a long time.
It’s Not Saving Money
This is something that is true for me, but might be a little bit different for you. I had no intention of buying any makeup in the sales, so if I did end up buying something it’s not a saving. It might be a saving on the full price, but that’s still £10 coming out of my bank that I wasn’t going to spend.
And there we have it, that was three reasons why I’m not shopping the Black Friday sales.
I thought this would be a bit different, and a bit of a different take.
Are you shopping the sales?
