I haven't bought anything yet - not even samples. But, even more importantly for my resolution: I've been rediscovering what I have. I'd completely forgotten how nice of a scent Play Intense is. The bottle is so awful - so juvenile - but the scent really is quite nice. It's dark but not heavy, and sweet but not cloying. And it's quite nice in the winter.

Rediscovering what you have is KEY. I grew tired of amassing bottles that I hardly ever reach for. That's why I'm down to 23 and I plan to buy only 1 great scent per month, rather than the 4 or 5 mediocre ones i've been buying per month. If I don't wear them, I want them gone. My 30 bottle limit is my critical mass for regular pruning.

Haven't seen any sign of me starting on those reviews I said I would start contributing

Been doing good so far, haven't purchased anything other than a 10ml decant in the last 4 months and actually boxed up 5 bottles to give away to some relatives. I am in the market for something new, however, and will be ordering about a dozen samples over the next week. Trying to limit myself to no more than 4 new bottles this year.
I've only bought one bottle this year, Creed Royal Oud. I'm trying to limit my purchases to only the scents that I absolutely love, which is tough because there are a lot of likes.
Current Top 10:
Creed Green Irish Tweed
Creed Silver Mountain Water
Creed Royal Oud
Amouage Jubilation XXV
Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
Tom Ford Amber Absolute
Tom Ford Italian Cypress
Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan
Bleu de Chanel
YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme
Didn't buy anything yet this month, not because of a resolution but because most if not all recent releases have been uninteresting and crappy so more money saved, which is a good thing!
I had a vague plan to buy only 4 new bottles this year, that lasted about 3 weeks... so far I have purchased 6 bottles and 2 decants. So much for that plan!
