Product use up

This months product use up hasn't been as successful as other months as only five products were finished:

Dead Sea Source shea body wash
Charles Worthington straightening balm
Tara Smith shampoo
Tara Smith conditioner
No7 luxourious foaming shower oil
Bon Bon lipbalm

I also thought that as we're a quarter of the way through the year and I'm a quarter of my way through my big product use up challenge I would do an update on how my drawer unit looks now. Original info on this can be found here if you haven't been following my challenge.

As you can see my 'drawers' are almost empty. There are about 17 products in the left drawer and 14 in the right (5 are partially used).

I also had a number of products which were part used which I wanted to try to use up (again see original post, link above.

Still open in the left pic: Everything except the last product
Still open n the right pic: Both Herbal Essences conditioners, Avon 2 in 1 and both L'Occitane shampoo and conditioner

So far I think I've done pretty well in reducing these so fingers crossed it will carry on!

So just a quick sum up. In the first quarter I have managed to use a grand total of 31 products but I still have another 13 partially used ones to finish and a million new ones to use!

I will do another big post like this at the end of June and my monthly round up posts at the beginning of every month if you want to keep track of how I'm doing!

Oh I so need to do something like this, I have way too many bottles of stuff about!

Karla said...

Yeah you really should, you feel really good at the end of the month seeing all the empty bottles

That's a great idea! I really like your blog, I hope we can follow each other! :) Ciao from Italy!

I'm right with Karla, which is why I have a 2 month spending ban as well. I've got too much stuff and I can't literally fit anymore in my bathroom. I'm hoping to have a decent amount of empties in June myself.

I love hearing about what you use up!

Haha I think I should be on a spending ban for the rest of the year, I've got way way way too much stuff but I'm slowly but surely working my way through it
