I think I have acheived what I wanted to from this goal – not to keep buying more things until I have used what I already have.
I haven’t bought shower gel for months as I’ve had loads of the mini samples/travel bottles to use. I’m fairly good now at raiding all my baskets of bits and bobs before buying new.
I’ve also been through the fridge and cupboards to use up everything before going shopping.
...turned into hummous (sp?) and babyfood. Yay. Need to use up the soups soon or they’ll sit in my cupboard all summer.
Working on the mini shower gels.
Planning some art projects with Jimmers to use up some of the many things I’ve collected for makey doey days.
...of conditioner all used up!
Currently finishing off my favourite perfume. I’ve got about four different ones on the go.
Was really tempted to buy some canvas’ today but I resisted as I have lots of other art materials to use first.
Now I have a sewing machine I can hopefully start doing something with all my saved pieces of fabric now!
Also I’m planning on soaking the chickpeas that have been loitering in the cupboard too long and maybe making some hummous.
...until I have used what I have:
- Bubble bath (I rarely have bubble baths)
- Body lotion (time to use it would be good)
- Styling products
- Tinned food
- Dried food
- Frozen food
- Art supplies
This goal interlinks with other goals (de-cluttering) & previous goals (reducing my environmental footprint). I am fed up of having stuff around the house that doesn’t get used up!!
