    No Buying Unnecessary Toiletries December 2017

    No Buying Unnecessary Toiletries December 2017 30th Nov 17 at 9:06 PM
    Here we go again for another month. As usual this initial post has been shamelessly copied from the many previous months. A big thank you to, err me, sstevo19 for starting us off last month.

    Welcome all newbies and regulars to this very friendly and chatty thread where we give lots of lovely tips on how to use up your stash and lots of support and encouragement if you need them.

    Keep up the pampering and keep down the spending: let’s make the naughty step an empty and lonely place this month (rather than one so long that it can be seen from space)! Will this be the month when the "usual suspects" rein it in a bit? Let's see..... (but I doubt it!)

    Remember - those products do nothing for you while they are stashed in drawers, boxes and cupboards!

    We are eternally grateful to Katie Clampet who set up this fab challenge in January 2010. Here's her original challenge post:

    "No buying any new toiletries, cosmetics, perfume etc... until I have used up ALL the ones I already have. I got a huge amount of (really nice) stuff for Christmas but I am going to resist the urge to browse Boots, Asda, Superdrug etc, and pop another tub of cream, face scrub, shampoo or conditioner into my basket. I reckon the stuff I have will last me until possibly June. I have decided that the money I save I will put into my special holiday account. Anyone else?"

    Lots of us have taken part in the challenge over the past few months (and some of us even years!!) and are making great progress in reducing our stashes and unnecessary/excessive spending.

    Regulars ignore this, but a quick resume is always helpful for newbies:

    Why not add the challenge to your signature as a reminder?

    How about taking a bit of time to do a stock-take and see if there are any gaps in your stash that you might need to spend on this month? Some of us set a budget for the month for essential purchases or to help with withdrawal symptoms, others like to go cold-turkey!! Other ideas which some people find useful: Listing everything out so you can cross things off as used to increase the sense of achievement, and putting a sum of money in a pot each time you use up an item to save for something you really want, or simply to assist in making future essential purchases "cash neutral".

    Remember the challenge is about making the most of your money, enjoying your products, finding which products really suit you best and are worth buying, giving yourself a well-deserved pampering and breaking the habit of buying for the sake of buying. In money-saving tradition, it should also be about making your products l-a-s-t as long as possible (although the temptation of using an unloved shower gel extravagantly to finish it off is sometimes too much to bear!).

    Brand new products (or opened perfume) sell well on eBay.

    Unsuitable products can be repurposed and used for other jobs (shower gel/shampoo as handwash etc).

    Some items can be returned to certain stores for exchange (for essential items or gifts!!) without a receipt.

    Unwanted items can be recycled as gifts or for gift hampers (saving the money you'd have spent on gifts).

    Unsuitable items can be donated to charity or a local women's refuge as mentioned earlier

    It helps to avoid the places where temptation lurks for you; be it QVC, Boots, Body Shop, email newsletter, the supermarket toiletries aisles, Grabbit board, online toiletries browsing, seductive department store beauty counter offers etc. Remember retailers are making offers and promotions all the time, so there will always be another deal! Honest!

    Good luck all for June and indeed the coming months, and remember to keep your stash lists updated, keep popping in for inspiration and support and to report your UU's and IN's, especially any sales bargains - we want a nosy!

    Welcome to all newbies - the more the merrier. Please introduce yourselves so we can welcome you properly! Do de-lurk if you are lurking, this is one of the friendliest threads on MSE.

    Oh - and anyone thinking "OMG my stash is FAR bigger than all of theirs, I cant possibly join" - believe you me, we have been doing this challenge for well over a year some of us - you wont scare us, and I can almost guarantee that someone somewhere will have had more and survived.... we are very supportive (and protective - so don't be scared!!) oh - and did we mention that are nosy??!!


    Useful abbreviations and jargon!

    WBA - Will Buy Again
    UU - Use Ups
    IN - Self explanatory - stuff you've gained into your stash - warning: lines may be given out for unnecessary purchases or you may be sent to the naughty step!
    NBI - A non-bought item such as a present, gift with purchase or free sample
    WNBA - Will Not Buy Again!
    Glitch - when a shop/online store make a pricing mistake so you end up paying less or even get freebies!
    PYN(M/T/W/Th/F/Sa/Su) DELETE AS APPROPRIATE! - Paint Your Nails Monday/Tuesday...... it allows everyone to try and finish those dastardly nail varnishes with group support! You can never be too groomed for this thread. Also see PY(T)N... - for toenails!
    Splutterer - the stage where an item is nearing the end of it's life and spluttering - also the most annoying and seemingly never ending stage!
    GWP - Gift With Purchase - a sample or mini sized item
    HG - Holy Grail - this is the product you would go back for time and time again, it does the job brilliantly, and is either economical, or so fantastic price becomes no object!
    NPI - Near Purchasing Incident (OMG we all have those!)
    LHJ - Long Haul Job - for those products - love 'em or hate 'em - that never seem to end no matter how often you use them
    PRCP - Pink Rose Candle Philosophy inspired by Erma Bombeck who said: 'If I had my life to live over again I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose that melted in storage'. Don't keep things 'for best' or 'for a special occasion'. That day never arrives. Give the best to yourself now and enjoy it. (Thanks to McCulloch29 for introducing this thought provoking sentiment to us)
    GA - for an out that was given away to charity, as a present, or "just because" rather than binned or UU
    TA - for an out that was thrown away due to going off (generally as it has been lurking at the back of a stash since time immemorial) or for any other reason such as a broken container or spillage
    PP - Project Pan: a list of specific items targeted to be used up

    If anyone can think of any more we can add to the list so newbies won't be intimidated by our jargon!

    Thank you so much for the welcome backs.

    I’ve had some Amazon NBI’s, sent to review... watch this space! Dry shampoo, (yay!) along with Garnier Ultimate Blends shampoo and conditioner.
    I gave away a lovely John Frieda shampoo and my favourite Aldi coconut shampoo to a friend who is out of work, so these were welcome.

    I've decided to make a list of things I will not need to buy in 2018 and the things I may need to buy. I am going to add it to my first post on this thread too then carry it forward each new month.

    Will not need to buy

    Shower gel
    Body moisturiser
    Hair conditioner
    Night cream
    Foot cream
    Nail polish
    Hair serum/oil
    Makeup of any sort
    Perfume
    Bubble Bath

    May need to buy

    Shampoo - we have lots but everyone is using the same ones now
    Cleanser - should get through most of the year
    Eye cream - only have the one which is in use
    Day cream - should get half way through the year
    Nail polish remover
    Curl cream - do have a few so should get quite a way through the year
    Deodorant
    Hand cream - should get halfway through the year

    Shouldn't need to be spending much at all really.

    Back for the No Buying Toiletries challenge. I pledge to only buy when I run out of a product that is not already in my stash no matter what wonderful emails land in in my Inbox or threads I read on MSE re: glitches!

    Great idea Dolly, I think that I should copy it if that is OK with you?

    I am going to keep a note in my purse of clothes/accessories that I am allowing myself to buy next year too, I do most of my shopping in charity shops and have a few things in mind, but have masses of clothes really and need to be very selective.

    I really liked the look of the Ted Baker weekend bag inn B00ts, don't need the contents, but loved the bag realistically I am not a light traveller and my skincare, hair care, make up and meds would probably fill it, let alone clothes and shoes

    VALM - 18 powder products - that will take some doing.

    I have a uu

    Hawaiian Tropic Coconut Body Butter - WBA, I really like this but I have two more in the stash I think plus a ton of other stuff.

    My PP list

    Philip Kingsley Moisture Balance Conditioner 1L
    Vaseline Intensive Care Hand Cream 100ml
    Avon MagiX Concealer
    Boots Time Delay Cleansing Oil 200ml
    Body Shop Vitamin E Serum in Oil 30ml
    Hawaiian Tropic Coconut Body Butter 200ml
    Tigi Curls Rock Shampoo 750ml
    Burberry Weekend EDP 30ml

    My 5 by Christmas list

    Garnier Oil Free BB Cream
    Bobbi Brown Pale Pink Blush - surely this time I can finish it
    Bare Minerals Brightening Primer
    No7 Stay Perfect Smoothing Eyeshadow
    Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Birthday Suit - I would just like to hit pan on this.

    My updated lists.

    With regard to the Christmas list, the BB cream feels light but not light enough to finish, there isn't much left of the blush and I am fed up of it so regardless I will call it done at Christmas. No way I will finish the No7 eyeshadow, I am using it as primer and there is loads left and it would appear I will never hit pan on the Benefit cream unless I start packing it on with a brush.

    One thing I have learnt is just how long makeup takes to finish and that I really don't need to be buying much at all.

    Bit late to the party this month, but I'm back in for December. Some UUs to start:

    - Julien Farel Vitamin conditioner - small. WNB - UU as shave gel
    - Helena Rubenstein All Mascaras eye makeup remover, 50ml. WMB - very effective, no irritation. One of the best I've used.
    - Clarins Extra-firming mask mini. WNB - very pleasant, but does nothing for me, so not worth shelling out.
    - Smashbox under eye primer. WNB - did nothing under my eyes (who knew you needed a separate primer for that?!), so used up as a normal primer. Was fine, nothing exciting.
    - Footner exfoliating socks. WDBA - HG, use twice a year.
    - Laura Gellar Balance & Brighten. WDBA - already have, HG. Mostly use as a finishing powder, as the finish and colour is so good. But sometimes use on it's own when I want a very light look. Took aaaaaages to finish! Very good value.
    - Garnier Olia hair dye. WDBA - HG.
    - Toni & Guy Radiating tropical elixir (hair serum). WDDDDDDBA - HG. Loooooove this, have done for years. Gutted it's finished. I'll experiment with some other things in my cupboard to UU some stuff, but I know I'll buy this again soon.
    - Erno Laszlo Lift and firm hydrogel sheet mask. WNB - came in a QVC Tili box. It's the best sheet mask I've ever used in terms of application. Doesn't matter how good it is though, I'm not paying the prices - £44 for 4

    I managed to clear most of my PP list from Nov, just a couple of things left, which are almost done. I'm not doing a PP list this month, just trying to get through as much as I can.

    The Laura Gellar B&B really lasted! Went on a lot longer than I expected.

    PP list (November):
    - Laura Geller B&B foundation – carried over from October
    - Unani cleansing milk – carried over from October
    - 2 mini cleansers
    - 2 face masks
    - Toni & Guy hair mask
    - Body Shop body butter
    - Helena Rubenstein eye makeup remover
    - 4 clarins sample serums
    - Body scrub

    And 5 by Christmas:
    - Seche Vite
    - Elemis pro-collagen eye treatment
    - Elemis night recovery cream-oil
    - Murad invisiblur primer
    - a hand cream (I'm soooo bad at using hand creams!)

    Hi everyone, I have some UUs tonight after a shower.

    Scrub Love Body Scrub, Coconut Cranberry - This came with a LF beauty box and it is really hydrating. However, half of the pack ended up on the shower floor and I spent 5 minutes to clean it up. WNBA.

    The Body Shop Vitamin E Body Butter - I love this, powdery smell can be a bit overpowering though. a couple of other body butters to use but WBA when I need more.

    Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo-Honey Treasures. This was a freebie and I enjoyed using it. Good for daily use. WMBA.

    I liked Dolly's idea too. I usually do something similar mentally then forget about it but I have a tendency to purchase the same type of products over and over again. This is not an issue for toiletries only but clothes and shoes as well.

    I've been going through up and downs over the last year and I don't even enjoy shopping as much anymore. Not so bad after all perhaps. I want to reduce the size of my cupboard in 2018 and have a smaller stash...
    £2015 in 2015 / £2015

    No buying unnecessary stuff.
    Clearing out by selling on Ebay, donating to charity etc.

I have been sure that this will hit pan for ages but it keeps going. I too have a back up ready along with two other powders hence why I want to make an effort to get through some in 2018.

    Bought a Happy Days conditioner from Sainsburys last night because I needed it.

    I had the email about the Soap & Glory Boots set this morning. I don't need anything as you all know but I did look at it as if I did and I do love S&G but they always include lipgloss and mascara which I wouldn't want plus the eyeliner wasn't something I would want either so I probably wouldn't have bought even if I did need something.

    If any of that made sense well done.

    I do look forward to the day when I can choose something, buy it and start using it pretty much straightaway.

    One UU from last night:

    The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter 90ml WDBA. I love this stuff, so nourishing and great. I love this stuff.

    One little note about the Body Shop lotions is that the pump stops working when your nearing the end. Grr...

    I have been very bad recently with not using up much of anything but I cleared out 3 mascaras (open at least 6 months and potentially gone off), a few samples that had cracked. I was glad to have not purchased whatever it was.

    Ohh that's interesting re. the change in consistency - was there a formula change? My first B&B was a medium that my sister gave me, as it was too dark for her. It was too dark for me too most of the time, so I bought a fair from QVC - the one I've just finished! I noticed the fair was a lot softer than the medium, and I have to use a much softer rush with it. I always wondered if it was a different formula for different colors, or if it changed at some point?

    Bit of a pampering day for me - early prep for the big work party next Friday!

    Gave myself a manicure and pedicure (nails now painted with Ciate fade to griege on fingers, and Barry M Raspberry on toes), and did a face mask, hair mask, and slathered myself in body lotion And had a couple of UUs!

    - Garnier summer body lotion. WDBA - I hate fake tan; gradual tan lotions work much better for me on my pale skin. I just want something to stop my very pale legs looking blue in winter . This is my fave - easy to apply, doesn't smell much, and sinks in well.
    - Toni&Guy Damage Repair mask. WDBA - love this, but always wait for an offer. Not quite as good as Elasticizer, but not far off - and a lot cheaper!
    - L'Occitane Verbena shower gel mini. WNB - really lovely scent, but I have quite a few shower gels lined up, and if I ever did buy one, it'd be a cheapy from Aldi that I love...
    - NB labs bio extracts serum mini. WNB - didn't notice any effects from it, or anything interesting about it at all.

    Finish 5:-

    OPI Spare Me A French Quarter- am wearing this at the mo. Noticed that application is getting patchy.

    Benefit Dallas blush. Am now picking up more product on my brush on application. Have decided for next year I want to rotate blush monthly in the hope of getting through some.

    Tiger Balm. Have neglected this cos MRM complains about the smell. Think I'll apply it in the mornings before I leave for work.

    Burst Bees lip balm. Again, I've neglected this and need to be more diligent.

    PP List:-

    L'Occitane Amber and Santal perfume - have Quarter of full size left
    L'Occitane eye make up remover oil - sample size
    Botanicals eye cream - tube is becoming difficult to squeeze
    Lush Cup o Coffee - small tub and should be gone this month
    Liz Earle body wash - 500ml bottle that has been on the go for too long. Want it gone.
    Smashbox eyeshadow- still want to hit pan on it
    Nivea deodorant
    Boots nail polish remover
    Aussie shampoo
    Jessica Phenomal oil - need to be more diligent in looking after hands and cuticles.

    Am off work for a few days. Am shopping today and will be going to LUSH for Dirty cream.

    UU : OPI Spare me a French Quarter - tried applying last night and only got enough Polish out to paint 3 fingers in total so counting it as done. Wearing OPI Sending you Holiday Hugs which I think is a dupe for A Ruby for Rudolph that I used to love. Will be panning OPI minis in the New Year.

    Dallas blush still hanging on. Have now started applying to the perimeter of my face in an attempt to use more.

    Don't know whether to give up on the Tiger Balm.

    Have made more of an effort with the lip balm now it's colder.

    Exciting news though. I have the tiniest pin !!!!! of pan on my eyeshadow. Will keep it going til Christmas I think to get more progress but for this challenge it's done.

    The next thing I'll finish I think is the nail polish remover. Only one application left I think.
    Back for the No Buying Toiletries challenge. I pledge to only buy when I run out of a product that is not already in my stash no matter what wonderful emails land in in my Inbox or threads I read on MSE re: glitches!

    One UU from yesterday:

    Soap & Glory Hand Food Hydrating Hand Cream 50ml WPNBA. It was nice but I'm so glad it's finished. Sometimes when I used it, it left my skin a bit itchy. Hm.. Now time to replace it with one from my stash.
