‘Use It Up’ Challenge

I’m not going to count my chickens before they hatch, but it’s likely that in the next year or so I will be moving into a new house (fingers crossed). Thinking about the move and the financial situation I’ll need to be in to live comfortably without too much stress led me to once again start thinking about the amount of beauty products I currently have stockpiled in the bathroom. One of the easiest ways for me to start saving money will be to try and use up all of the products that I currently own that I don’t plan on taking with me to the new house. In a way it’ll be very similar to a Project 50 Pan, but I’ll be formatting it a little bit differently. To start with, I’ve chosen 10 products that I’m ready to finish up and that I don’t plan on repurchasing or taking with me to the new house. They are –

01: The Face Shop Herb Day Cotton Face Wipes
02: AlchemicMuse Chiquita Soap
03: Seven Wonders Moroccan Oil Shampoo
04: Seven Wonders Moroccan Oil Conditioner
05: Haus of Gloi Vice Body Lotion
06: Toni & Guy Boost-It Mousse
07: Urban Rituelle Hand Cream
08: MUFE High Definition Powder
09: MOR Marshmallow Body Butter
10: L’Oreal Elnett Supreme Hold Hair Spray

Wish me luck!

6 Thoughts on “‘Use It Up’ Challenge

  1. Good luck ! 😀

  2. I think that is a great idea, often I finish up products that I am planning on repurchasing and it just doesn’t feel as good.Chris and I will hopefully be moving into a house next year so I should probably do the same!

  3. Good luck! I’ve been doing the same kind of thing lately – though I certainly do wish I’d started earlier! I’m moving house in just over a month, and will NOT have the same bathroom storage I currently do (sad face) – so I’m doing my darndest to use up what I can, and I already bought another couple of storage tubs to store excess prodz under my bed. Eeeep!

    It’s so satisfying though – I made a list of everything that’s partially used (sort of like you have) and I do so love crossing items off the list as I use them up!

  4. Ah, the addiction of emptying things. Somewhere out there there’s a support group. Emptiers Anonymous.

  5. Good for you Jess! I also have the 7 Wonders shampoo and conditioner that needs using up! I am going on a little trip next year to Paris, Italy and London so I’ve really reigned in my spending! I did however just make a ridiculously large Haus Of Gloi order! Fugues luck using up some of your stuff!
