Empties - V2

Seeing product empties is so satisfying 🙂

 

Post your weekly, monthly, quarterly, whenever-ly empties and let us know how you felt about them!

Re: Empties - V2

Great job on the empties, @Samtian!! I've got to try Clean Bee, good to know it's great. I'm sorry the Boscia cleansers didn't work well.

Re: Empties - V2

@haleyvvvv Thank you! I'm just not a fan of the oil type cleansers. And the other one didn't remove much stuff. I really do like the Clean Bee though.

More decluttered and donated beauties

Fragrance samples - all 21 samples are new / never been used and have already been donated. The only fragrance samples I have in the house now are either of perfumes that I like and use, or are of scents that I'm interested in seeing if I want to pick up a full size, and I'm trying to limit those as well.Fragrance samples - all 21 samples are new / never been used and have already been donated.

YTD: 149 items decluttered, of which 60 were new, unused products which were donated to local charities.

 

Left to declutter are cheek products, foundation, hair care, bath & body, skincare and lip balms. I'm aiming to get through all the remaining category of products by the end of March, so fingers crossed my motivation and energy doesn't wane. 🤞🏼  Thank you again @heartsmyface for inspiring me to actually work on decluttering items and not just thinking about it. 😆

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi  Omg I actually de stashed my same benefit eye palette!!!! 

Re: Empties - V2

Because it was time, right @ather?!!! 😂😜 Ohhh, I don't even want to know how long we've had that palette around! 

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi  I know I got mine before 2004 🤣 probably haven’t used it since then too! I also have a bunch of the naked palettes I’ve had for so long and I should de stash 

Re: Empties - V2

That probably sounds about right @ather! Sigh. Yeah, with this round, I was brutal about pulling out and tossing anything that I haven't used in a long time or didn't remember purchasing. 

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi really nice work on decluttering. It must feel so good to make room for new products to love!

Re: Empties - V2

@eshoe, I have mixed feelings about decluttering; definitely pleased to have cleared out these things, and happy to donate unused items, but also mortified that there’s so many that truly needed to be tossed. I am looking forward to having mostly full size products to work on. 

Re: Empties - V2

Mortified @itsfi 😂 I hope for your sake this will be a one and done sorting, then! 

Re: Empties - V2

You can say that again @eshoe! I'm so much better with making sure my masks are not past their prime. Need to put a system in place with other products.

Re: Empties - V2

You probably already have one in place, @itsfi, but creating a spreadsheet with purchase/finish dates to catalogue everything has been a huge help to me. Especially since I sometimes keep things ‘safely stored’ in random places 😆 

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi that's amazing!! Great job decluttering!! 🙌

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you @lmaster! I need to keep at it, while there's momentum! lol. Hoping to get a couple more groups of products cleared out over the next couple of weeks. 

Re: Empties - V2

Congratulations on the declutter, @itsfi!!

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you @haleyvvvv! It feels good to clear out some things. 

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi Fragrance samples are one thing I can never part with - and I never even use mine!

Re: Empties - V2

@greeneyedgirl107, I understand. I had piles of fragrance samples at one point; a few years ago. Never used ‘em, but couldn’t let them go either. This is the first year where I have less than 10 fragrance samples. 😱 I need to use my full size fragrances more. I’m focusing on whittle down my lotions and creams for the first half of the year so maybe I’ll turn my attention to fragrances in the latter half. 🤔 

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi I can understand wanting to your your full sizes more!

Re: Empties - V2

@itsfi Holy moly!! good job!!

Re: Empties - V2

Thank you @Samtian! 🤗 I’m happy with how things are clearing out. I just have to be good with not picking up samples after samples just because,  and be more thoughtful on what I really want to try.
