So I have great news to report. I have used even MORE items in my collection of beauty products. It has been much easier since I have them all housed in one area. Can’t miss them. I am working on consolidation for the makeup now- giving some away, purging old products etc. This will more than likely take place after the new year. 5 years ago
This is part organizing/ part trying to solve the beauty product excess issue
I bought a clear storage container (similar to the one above)from Wal-Mart to organise my eye, lip and face products. It puts all the makeup I own in ONE place so I don’t have to search in this drawer or that bag to find it. I am embarrassed to say though that I own WAY WAY WAY more of all three of these than I need to. I’ve heard you should purge your stuff periodically -to keep from catching da cooties. I did a little of this while I was putting stuff in the container, so maybe I don’t own as much as I think.
The only thing I wish I could add in there was my brush roll. I am sure I can get the brushes in the container separately, but I like the whole brush roll concept. Maybe I will just leave it on the top.
My goal for purchasing this is to help cut down on purchasing LIKE or extremely similar items. I literally have 8 shades of brown lip gloss. Not a proud moment 5 years ago
Ok so this morning I FINALLY finished another shower gel -one of my favorites too, Cotton Blossom. I am tempted to purchase another one but alas I digress. Keeping my eyes on the PRIZE. Lawd it is hard!!!! It actually hasn’t been that difficult. This is beginning to be less of a tedious challenge and more of a fun one.
Believe it or not I was watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta and the way they ( I say they because I don’t want to reveal those in the group I am not fond of) just do because they can. I have always been uncomfortable/guilty with waste even while in the act. I am a bit more cognizant of wasteful acts and try to do better each time.
I plan over the next couple of weeks or so to have all the shower products in one place and actually LOOK threw my stash BEFORE I head to the stores. Wish me luck 5 years ago
I am working on this. I have completely used one of the upteen facial moisturizers and working on finishing another one. In terms of cleansers, I used up one bar facial soap and am now working on a brand new tube I came across a week ago. To make this goal achievable, I will over the next month began to group like things( cleansers with cleansers, moisturizers with moisturizers, etc.) in a storage container that will be housed in the bathroom for convenience. I will also label to find all the items easier. 5 years ago
