  • Final outs:

    Sure spray deo - WBA DH HG - plenty left in stash.

    Olay lathering cloths - WNBA - DD used these up.

    TBS Grapefruit body spray - WBA liked the smell but it didnt last long.

    But there are ins:

    3 Toothbrushes

    Clinique Lash power mascara - HG and the one im currently using is passed its best.

    Clinique take off the day cleansing balm - no excuse I just wanted to try it

    It was bonus time in Boots so I got the following freebies:

    Liquid soap
    Moisture surge
    Moisture surge eyes
    Mini mascara
    nail polish (I dont count polish in my stash)

    Ending the month with 67 outs but 88 ins +21 on the month.

    On a positive note I put £1 in a pot for every product I use or sell - I use this for holiday spending money. As its our holiday next week I was delighted (and shocked) to discover we had over £2300.

    I will therefore be resetting my totals in August to start saving for next years holiday spending money. This time to deter me further from buying more than im using (or at least to sell some of it) I am introducing a penalty system where I will pay £1 for each item gained so if I end up with a overall gain on the month of +20 its £20 in the pot.
    No more buying toiletries
