July monthly buys

At the beginning of this month I decided to add a feature on my blog where I would list all the hair-related items I bought for the month. I also gave myself a limit of $25 and $40 for ordering products online like Bee Mine, Curlz, CUSH...any specific product line online.

For the month of July I spent a total of $17.20 + the $39.29 on Bee Mine products. I didn't go over either of my limits.

Here's how I spent the money:
Glycerin $2.89
Soap holder (for Bee Mine shampoo bar, I forgot about this so its not pictured) .97

Hair sectioning clips 12 for $1.79
Widetooth detangle comb $1.79
Ouchless ponies $1.19
Babyliss scalp massager $2.19

16oz Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Moisturizer in Coconut $34.97
8oz Bee Mine Curly Hold Butter unscented $13.97
Purity Rhassoul Clay Clarifying Bar $8.00
I also received a sample of the Bee Mine Bee Lovely Moisturizing Daily Conditioner and the Bee Nrished Ayurvedic Herbal Bar.

So in total I spent $56.49 now that isn't a lot BUT that's a lot to be spending on HAIR. If I were to spend $50 every month thats $600 a year! This could be money spent on other items. I'm trying to spend smart here so I'm hoping I will be able to keep within my price ranges every month.

I'm pleased with the items I purchased this month. The glycerin is really good in the mixture I created to spritz on her hair from time to time. The flower clips I think are cute but I'm not too fond of because the clip is small and plastic not like an alligator clip or anything. So when I used it in Leelee's hair for this style, I had to grab a thin piece of hair because it wouldn't snap shut with a big amount. Also, the flowers seem frayed and pieces of it would be in her hair. The items from sally I really like. Both the brushes are great so far and I will do a review soon. I love the fact that they are both plastic with wide spaced apart teeth so its easy to clean. The ponies I bought for banding since she needed new ones and I'm still trying to decide if I like them or not for that purpose. The Bee Mine products I of course am satisfied with! Stay tuned for more reviews and updates of the items I purchased this month (:

How much do you think you spend every month on items for your hair? Do you think you need to budget?

30 day challenge, day 7 - Five pet peeves
1.) Stepping out the shower with nothing on the floor. Ugh, I can't do it! I have to have something there to step on.
2.) Washing dishes with cold water. Noope! It has to be warm or hot.
3.) When people Typ3 AnD TaWk Lyke diiZ..why do you do this? Esp if you're over the age of 12! What is the point of adding extra letters that do not need to be there? A simple you=yuh, yew, y u uh..are you serious?
4.) When the wrong word or phrase is used. Example: don't take me for granite (don't take me for GRANTED). Recently, I seen inter-wishing for intuition -____- I'm sorry, it bugs me. #dontjudgeme!
5.) People who are loud for NO apparent reason in public places..its not that serious.
