Sample Packet Challenge

I don't know about you ladies but I have at least 562 sample packets in my possession.  In the "Project 10 Pan" spirit I thought we could challenge ourselves to see how many samples we could use up in a month.

 

I'm already at 2 with the Naked Body Butter and Hourglass foundation samples I used this morning.  Anyone want to "compete" with me?

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I'm in!  I have no idea how many packets I have, but I know I've got a ton of them; I keep having to get new containers to sort them into!  I've actually been trying to work my way through the various BB cream samples I have, in order to find one that's not too dark for me, but I haven't used any yet today.

 

Does it count if we empty a bunch of them into a travel-sized container for later use?  Smiley Wink

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

^ no cheating! 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Honest question!  Smiley Very Happy  I'm going to a convention next week, and I was planning on emptying the dozen or more Bumble & Bumble shampoo/conditioner packets I've got into travel sized bottles so that I wouldn't have to fumble around with them in the shower.  Just didn't know if I should count the packets as used when I empty them into the bottles, or later when I use what's in the bottles.

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

when you use what's in the bottle Smiley Wink 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

^ Agreed.

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I'll join the challenge. I have a ton of Birchbox and Sephora samples to get through.

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Ha, this is a GREAT idea!  I have this problem as well.  Whenever there's a bag with free samples in it, that's when I place an order (Beauty.com just had a HUGE bag, too).

 

I will jump on board for the month of September!  Perhaps to keep motivated and focused on this challenge we could occasionally update on our used sample count, or favorites (or big dislikes)!

 

I had been possibly saving some for a traveling box -- but I have travel and deluxe samples for that anyway!  I can focus on using foils this month.

 

 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I'm actually really good at this once I set my mind up to it lol.

I used up 20 samples in a week once when I was on vacation, I can't compete right now though, I'm so close to finishing a lot of my deluxe/ full sized items! Lol

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I'm still working through some deluxe sample items too!  You can always post those in the Deluxe Sample Edition post of Project 10 Pan.

 

My husband is going to start wondering why I'm saving bags of empty bottles and foil packets. I can hear it already,

 

Him: "Why are you saving garbage?"

Me: "Well... I'm going to take a picture of all the empty packets and post it on a makeup website..."

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

My mom threw away my empty sample packets -.-

I was so upset lol

I was all MOM! I was gonna take a picture of that... yeaaaah lol

 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Hahah, I had to explain myself too when I kept all my empties for August. I was pretty proud of my progress going through packets/minis though, I posted a picture in the empties board at the start of September. Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I'm so in! I'm in the process of putting everything away in my "vanity" & have so many samples, even though I got rid of a bunch for TSB.

Are we including minis & perfumes, or just foil packets? 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I'm just counting sample packets for this one.  

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

perfect

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Count me in! Smiley Happy When is the end date for the challenge?

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Should we go exactly 1 month till the 19th of October or should we go 6 weeks until the end of October?  What do you ladies think?

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

End of october Smiley Happy

 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

Let's make it until the end of October Smiley Happy

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I'm in!

 

Re: Sample Packet Challenge

I will bow to the wisdom of these ladies, but I would have said they count as "used" when you fill the bottle and put it in your travel case! hehe
