How Do You deal with Your charm Budget?

missing this thug a lot today!
Lately, I’ve been listening to podcasts about financial literacy, and consequently, I’ve been thinking about how people deal with their charm budgets.

I read in an short article recently that says on average, women spend $313 a month and men spend $244 on charm products. I’m not really amazed at those amounts, though, seeing how it’s easy to go there if you’re shopping at places like Sephora.


Anywho, I’m trying to be much more purposeful with the charm products I buy, and so I’m taking stock of my spending habits. I’ve discovered that I tend to do one of three things:

1. Restock, then pick up extras

When I run out of something, I’ll go in to Sephora or Target for a restock, and while I’m there, I’ll typically pick up a few extra things that weren’t originally on my list because YOLO.

2. tension shopping

If I’ve had a rough day, I’ll purchase charm products that typically aren’t on my wishlist for some instant gratification.

3. Sale shopping

OH, GOSH. This is my Achilles’ Heel. If I can get a bunch of products on sale, I have no problem splurging, even if it’s for things that I technically don’t need.

I’m thinking about creating a set charm budget per month, but you know… There’s something about those impromptu charm purchases when I need a pick me up. Sigh.

I’m curious to know how you deal with your charm budget.


Like, do you choose to purchase makeup only when you run out of something? Or do you have a set monthly budget for charm products, and you pick up whatever you’re fancying at the moment? Or are you the type of person who purchases products on a whim? let me know in the comments.
