This post is less about minimalism and more about trying to save money, but I find that the two topics overlap quite a bit.
I’ve been trying to get better about sticking to a budget for the past two months, which means
all thing fun things eating out, clothing purchases, and makeup buying have been severely cut down.
I had my makeup budget set for the month when I realized I was at the end of my primer. So out of desperation I cut the container open and realized that I had at least another two weeks worth – score!
Just look at that!
I picked up a little sample container last time I was at the Nordstrom beauty counter (pre-budgeting, obviously) and used a small spoon to scoop the remaining primer into the container.
Alright, I know this isn’t a groundbreaking post, but I love it when I end up being more of a minimalist when I’m not even trying. Instead of going out and buying some more primer, I’m fully using what I have. If that’s not minimalism – I don’t know what is.
Plus, now my face primer matches my eye primer and they’re both in my favorite colors – black and white. It’s the little things, am I right?
And yes, I see how unminimalist-like it is to have two primers, but minimalism is a journey. . . not a destination. Well, it kind of is like a destination, but I’m obviously still working on that!
