I'm easily in this challenge... I only buy during Holiday Black sales.... unless it's for business .... financial security... FINANCIAL FREEDOM!

I have a Sally's Beauty supply in my house.... and have being doing very well getting rid of it

Ladies, if you're confused on how much you spend... start selling your products.
I could have broke down and cried at the money "I made" ....which was the money "I spent":blush:!
I could have cried... funny thing i'm only 1/5 or 1/6 thru my original stash...(stash before I hit the hair forums)
I've been a hair product junkie my entire life!:nono::nono: Now I'm flipping that love to my advantage

my only true staples are
1-water (moisturizer 4 life!)
2- aloe vera juice (slap yo' mama for this one)
3- KCKT (all day...errrryday, fifty Tyson!!!)
