    Hey everyone, I have got through a Facewash, shampoo, conditioner, novel and sachet of sauce mix so all heading in the right direction, (its quite daft that I get excited about these things!)

    Keep plugging on

    HI all, not been on forum for a few days, still plugging away at bathroom cabinet and kitchen cupboards. Have even made some bread to use up some dried yeast I got from a freebie site.
    Keep at it everyone!!

    I've been trying to tackle the ironing pile today, and will continue tomorrow, as there are probably about 200 things to iron. Two people simply do not need this many clothes, so I'm trying to filter out at least 1 in 5 items to put on ebay.

    Also DDs finished mouthwash and I dug out new tube of hair remover that had forgotten about from huge stash in cupboard. Am LOVING this thread..wouldn't have looked before and just bought some new stuff, knowing me:p

    Hi all, listing more stuff on e-bay and have enlisted OH in 'blitzing' spare (junk) room today instead of going out on his motorbike....either I'm getting super persuasive or he is up to something....
    Keep losing or using xx

    I'm quite pleased with my progress so far, really feel like I'm focussing on using up what I have.

    Someone at work brings in the Avon catalogue and normally I'd be throught it ordering all sorts of fancy things. I did buy from it but only things I will actually use that were all really good prices (shower gel, 2in1 shampoo for gym etc)

    I had one of those £5 off vouchers from Boots not that long ago and was all set to get a facewash as it is something you can get with a small spend but then I remembered that I have 3 or 4 already waiting to be used up in my drawers at home and stopped myself. Just because it is cheap, doesn't mean i have to buy it!!!!
    I've got my own flat :j:j

    Now I have to pay the bills :eek:

    And feed my interiors addiction ;)

    Hi all,

    Not been on for a while either, three boxes of clothes/shoes/bags etc gone to charity, can see floor space. Also just used up a bath foam, toiletries don't seem to be going down but also not being buying them so can only be good.

    Yes I am finding it a really useful reminder..have bought no toiletries for family in 2010 yet..a minor miracle or maybe even a major one. I have even held out against the junior mouthwash the kids were asking me for (may capitulate on grounds of encouraging dental hygiene though!).Took some of my many hotel samples on holiday last week and they lasted us very well..

    This is a GREAT challenge. Am loving it!!
