I've been having a bit of tidy in my bathroom cupboards today (chucking it down outside and don't want to go anywhere!)

Like most of us ladies I'm a sucker for bogofs etc, but then something new comes along and the "free" one gets left on the cupboard. Or I try something a couple of times and decide I don't like it.

I've got everything from toothpaste (unopened obviously - gone onto non-SLS type now) to disposable razors.

Can anyone help me find them a good home/deserving cause, I hate waste, but I shan't use them myself?
:wave:

    Hand them in to your local homeless shelter- they would make good use of them.

    Couldn't you use it all? It would mean buying no toiletries for a while so you could spend your money on other things.

    I have given similar things to both our local homeless shelter and a women's refuge. They were both delighted to get them.

    Edited to add:

    During a sale, I stocked up on warm socks, and when I sorted out my drawers realised I could start a shop, so took a load to the homeless 'have a cup of tea' base. They were really pleased, cos they said they would go to people who probably couldn't remember having something new to wear.
