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 Babafette 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 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?

We have a "Swaps Group" on Facebook when you can swap good condition items with other like-minded addicts. PM your email address to Trudij, Tokkiandoliver, seasideDreamer or luvlycake and they can add you to the group.

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, 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 March 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!

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!

    WARNING!!! Enabling post!

    It's Clinique Bonus time at Boots!
    I'm not going for it because I don't use nail polish and I've tons of unopened mascara. I don't NEED anything anyway, I'd have just stocked up so it's just as well.

    I'm in again! Thanks clutterfree for the new thread.

    I sneaked in two late July UUs last night:

    32/177. Elemis Fresh Skin Cleansing Wipes (25) - these were only bought as a low spend to get a great Elemis GWP last year; WBA for the same reason, but otherwise not as they weren't wet enoguh for my liking and I prefer a proper cleanse anyway.

    33/178. Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Hydrating Antioxidant Serum 4ml - freebie and WNB, didn't seem to do much and smelled funny even though only open for a short while.

    Taking my totals to:

    UU: 33/178
    IN: 15/161
    TA 0/1
    Down just 18 for the year to date, boo! But no bought INs in July :j

    However, I'm off to a flying start for August with 3 UUs already this morning:

    1/179. Jenny Packham Salonniere Body Butter 250ml - Mr B sale item, was ok but probably WNBA as very strongly scented and not sure I like this fragrance on me.

    2/180. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion 30ml - GWP, WNBA as much prefer the gel now but would use again if received. Have another in the stash.

    3/181. D&G Dolce EDP 1.5ml - WNB, this was fine but others I prefer.

    *slinks in* Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted on one of these threads (I did graduate way back in 2012!) but thought I would pop in and say hello! I haven't gone totally back to my hoarding ways but I must admit I have succumbed to some Body Shop sales and now have about 4 body butters that need to be used up plus a couple of extra shower gels. I think posting here keeps me on the straight and narrow!

    Already used up 127 products this year so things could be worse! Hope you're all doing well and you don't mind me joining in again!

    Thanks Clutterfree for starting off a new thread, I am in again too.

    Hi to Ruby_Eskimo, it is lovely when people pop in and say hello.

    I must check and post my feeble UU's for July, I will hopefully have a few more this month.

    I have graduated in Deo's and Toothpaste and seem to have got out of the habit of wanting to stockpile, but am happy to have a just couple of spares when good offers come around. I don't have a stockpile of hair products either, although I have several of each type of product on the go as I like to ring the changes, so just skin care and body products to battle on with, no danger of graduating there for a long time. I need to keep my eye on the ball with eye makeup as I rediscovered what fun it is to play around with new things (having not bothered for ages).
    The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time. (Abraham Lincoln)
