saving money
I've set up some rules for myself and unless I can check off every damn one, I'm not allowed to buy whatever it is that I'm considering buying.
eyeliner
It's easy for colored eye makeup to go the route of "fourteen-year-old who was dropped off at the mall by her mom and went to Sephora for a long enough period of time that it was definitely considered loitering."
makeup brushes
When you clean your brushes, you’re not just getting rid of old makeup, but you’re also ridding the brush of (and here’s where things gets real gross): old makeup, dirt, oil, dead skin, and bacteria. I know. I know. Being a human is disgusting.
packing
I realized that if I wanted to make my time in the airport as easy and cheap as possible, I needed to get my act together and learn how to pack a carry-on like an adult.
eye cream
Did you guys know that doctors are, like, waaay more helpful than a 3 a.m. Google search? It’s sort of insane how much they know.

glasses
To participate in nearly all other facets of such a superfluous industry and then sit on my high horse when it comes to glasses seems pretty ridiculous, don’t you think?
expensive
While I’ve made the transition to certainly drugstore beauty products, there are some products that I really and truly believe are worth their high price point.
eyebrows
I mean, I’d rather have my eyebrows back, but I’ll definitely be sticking the Brow Tech To Go in my purse.

closets
I understand why you should give clothes away. I mean, I understand the logical reasoning behind it.
