Default It's official... I'm a Product Junkie

I have finally arrived at the point where I can limit my makeup/ skincare purchases, then I found this site. I've replaced one addiction with another! I have made 5 online hair related orders in the last week 1/2 to 2 weeks and I am contemplating another.

I find myself browsing the swap board and other boards looking for the next best thing! Thanks, girls!

Welcome to the club!!!! This website has been responsible for changing me from a make-up addict to a hair product addict!

Have fun exploring the wonderful world of product bliss!

Good idea to start on the swap board. Samples and swaps are a much more cost-effective way to appease the PJ, speaking as someone who learned the hard way.

Oh... I've definately learned the hard way before discovering the swap board. I added up the receipts from hair related purchases, and I've spent $386 in the last week and a half!! It doesn't seem like a lot when your purchasing a few things at a time, but added up, it's rediculous! I made a pact with myself to never add receipts again!

Oh! My gosh, girl! I thought I was bad. I have spent more money on hair products in the month of September than I've ever spent in my life. I knew I had taken a turn for the worst when I started paying over $20 for a single hair product. When you spend that much on just one hair product and you order several it adds up quick. I keep telling myself that I'm just going to try one more and call it quits but then that one turns into two, then three etc.

Welcome to the club. I've been pretty good for 2 weeks, but I appeased the buying gods with other products (Meow cosmetrics and some <ahem> toys<ahem> from Eden's Fantasy

I'm constantly rainchecking new products and I have a to buy list already. But the key to really enjoying being a PJ is to allow myself to use the products I have and get daily enjoyment out of them. Buying more products at this time actually causes more dissatisfaction because I would have too many to use.

I have said that to myself with every single purchase I have made! I am trying SO hard not to place another order, but there's ONLY two more things that I really want to try

My biggest problem (besides the CC bill coming in and my DH seeing it ) is that I dont know what to use. I have so much stuff that I am going crazy trying to think about combos to use them!

Yeah... that true. I wish every company would have 2 oz trial bottles. That would make my wallet a lot happier!
