So, my family is a lower income household. About 4 years ago, we found out that we were expecting our second daughter. So to save money, I stopped buying alot of extras. Cut back on clothes purchases, shoes, etc. But I completely stopped purchasing make-up. Every now and then my mother in law will give me some eyeliner or mascara that she does not like, and I will just wear that that for like special occasions or job interviews. But once it is old, I throw it out and do not buy new. Then she may give me more later, and so it goes in a circle as such. I have went so long not buying makeup, that it is no where in the home budget to even purchase any if I even wanted to. (I even sold Avon for a while and never bought any lol). I don't really miss wearing make up too much, I don't really feel I need it. But I miss having that expense that was just for me, lol You know?.....SO.....What did you give up for financial reasons or why?
