    I'd like to join please - not sure how I will manage to find everything - not so much the makeup thing but I'm a bit of a bathtime fanatic. Can't resist a good soap. I'll start to make an inventory. After seeing Jacksxx mines a doddle.

    I'm in again girlies! Forgot to count a couple of items "IN" as well - Mum's giving up Avon (booooo!) and when clearing out her cupboard found a skin So Soft body lotion and a load more sample sachets of Lotus Shield serum! I've been very good though and put the sachets away until I've finished my current Frizz Ease one though - will also make sure I have some put away for holiday etc.

    Count me in for September

    Useup's

    Avene body moisturiser WIBA yes ideal for the mornings when in a rush.

    Urban Retreat eye cream WIBA yes but I am now using up my Soap & Glory one, have an Organic Surge in my stash.

    Unknown serum which I was sent to test from Cosmeticsresearchonline WIBA yes it was lovely & hydrating.

    Opened a BS cherry body butter smells lovely & really hydrating.
  • ...especially as I have so many things anyway and want to get my stash down to 1000 items by Christmas.

    We've all got loads of things to use up on here - Boots, Body Shop, QVC TSVs etc.

    Oh pretty please...that's one toiletry SOA I would LOVE to see! (In the nicest way possible. ;))

    Best of luck! :T

  • Welcome, mommychaos! :D As you can see, you are among kinfolk! :D:D

    And isn't it amazing how it all adds up? I only had one small drawer full in my bedroom and one large drawer in the bathroom and when I posted my stash, people were goggle-eyed at my wares! I have steadily been using it up since, but there's still quite a lot to go.

    Best of luck! :T
