    No Buying Unnecessary Toiletries December 2013 30th Nov 13 at 2:04 PM
    Happy Christmas everyone

    AND 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 Maddiemay 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 locked 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 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 sig as a reminder?


    We have a "Swaps Group" on Facebook when you can swap good condition items with other like-minded addicts. PM Trudij, Tokkiandoliver, seasideDreamer or luvlycake your email address 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 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 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 December and indeed next year, and remember to keep popping in for inspiration and support, and to report your UU's and IN's, especially any sales bargains - we want a nosy, and keep your stash lists updated

    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 nosey??!!

    Useful abbreviations!

    WIBA? - Will I 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!
    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.From Erma Bombeck who said, 'If I had my life to live over again I would have burned the pink candle sculptured 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 rather than binned or UU, to charity,as a present, or "just because!".

    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.

    If anyone can think of any more we can add to the list so newbies won't be intimidated by our jargon!

    Graduates

    Here is a list of our lovely,fragrant ladies who have polished and pampered their way through their products and managed to get their toiletries stash under control.

    Temptation is everywhere, it is a struggle to resist for me as I think if I don't get it now I will never get another offer like it. So far I have resisted Debs 15% off, Body Shop 50% off, the Clinique GWP to name just a few.

    I have some uu

    Mandara Spa Citrus Spice Shower Gel 50ml - this was the last of several of these and I am sad to see it go as it is gorgeous.

    Champneys Distant Shores Body Butter - this was a massive pot but it wasn't a chore to use as like all the Champneys I have used it is beautiful. I have a body oil in this scent left but I am not a fan of body oils.

    Epaderm - 500g - this was a prescription product for DD's eczema but I noticed that one of the ingredients is SLS which is added into it because it can be used as a hand wash too but we used it as a moisturiser and SLS thins the skin which eczema sufferers do not need so I used it up as foot cream.

    The weather here today is a bit extreme, rain and 70mph winds. School run was fun.

I keep thinking that I am missing out on offers too, although I know that Debenhams often do 10% off beauty. I would love the Naked palette but luckily it is sold out cannot justify the purchase at all as I am getting the third one for Christmas.

    I have seen lots of things that I would like to get people for Christmas but everything is out of stock! Wanted to get my friend TBS smoky plum eye palette as thought would be a nice gift and is a good price, especially with 40 or 50% off but it has been out of stock for ages. Will have to look in store but not sure if can get discount in there.

    I've been naughty and given into the recent M & S glitches:

    Ins: 3 x 30 ml of M & S White Flowers Eau de Parfum : On first sniff, very floral (Obviously)

    6 x 10 ml Eau de Tolilette True Red Purse sprays - Reminds me of another famous brand possibly DKNY.

    Will declare a UU now to make up for the above as only a few sprays left: Tommy Hilfiger 10 Eau de Toilette. WNBA, initial scent is lovely but fades very quickly. Not sure if it's because it's a toilette rather than parfum.

    Quite often when Debenhams do the 10% off they do bonus points or have GWP's included which makes the 15% not as good as it seems. If you can get the bonus points out of them that is, they are a nightmare for adding points to your beauty card.

    Have two ins

    La Roche Posay Effacler Duo - little sample tube through the post, I only use this in short burst so this size will be quite handy.

    Witch Primer - supposed to be good for breakouts and as a primer so will give it a go.

    Glad to hear your son came through the operation OK rosemary, and it was really good of the surgeon to call you and let you know everything went well. He will find something nice for Christmas dinner I'm sure.

    I have UU a pot of Organic Surge facial moisturiser. This was part of a Glossybox I got a few months ago, and I'm not sure I'll buy this one again. It was just a little bit too heavy for my liking, and I'm trying to switch to SPF moisturisers.

    I'm using this moisturiser too at the moment and like you find it heavy to use. Don't like the fragrance of it either. Never mind, I noticed last night I can see the bottom of the pot so hopefully not much of it left.


    Laura Mercier Colour wardrobe, not that i need ANY more Laura Mercier palettes lol! these usually go to 50% off on boxing day so I'm going to have a look and see if i can find one. i usually have a look in the Illamasqua sale too, they usually do a really good new year one and I've had some really good bargains from them.

    I did get to the Trafford Centre yesterday and bought the MAC eyeshadows that she wants. I also took advantage of the 15% offer at Debenhams and got my sister the Daisy gift set, bought a tube of L'occitane Cherry Blossom hand cream for my friend at work and also a tube of Elemis Sensitive Shave Gel for MrM. Was pleased with these savings. I then bought a L'Occitane Cherry Blossom solid perfume to add to my friend's gift so she is getting a little hamper including those items above and a 250ml bottle of L'Occitane Cherry BLossom shower gel.
    Back for the No Buying Toiletries challenge. I pledge to only buy when I run out of a product that is not already in my stash no matter what wonderful emails land in in my Inbox or threads I read on MSE re: glitches!

    I was speaking to a girl at work today about her nice nail polish and she said she had the Ciate advent calendar. I was very jealous about her getting 24 new nail polishes! although I wouldn't want to declare all those Ins.

    Repainted my nails last night and am wearing OPI Callin me a Lyre which is a very soft sheer french pink. Looks rather boring though.

    Forgot to report another IN but not for me. Bought Emma a Sunnyside bubble bar from Lush on Monday when I was in Manchester.

    Sorry to break it to you, but I started to see the bottom of the pot months ago! I didn't mind the smell so much, but if it helps you, I used it up quicker by applying it again before bed. It works quite well as a night cream - it's the right consistency. I probably could have used a second moisturise instead for the day time, but opted instead to focus on one.

    I have received a free sample of La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo today - thanks for whoever shared the link! I forget....

    I'm thinking of Rosemary and glad the surgery went ok.

    back to work tomorow for the 2nd consultancy meeting, TBH not sure exactly what the point is. At the last one they gave me the redundancy info as well as details of the money due, only statutory and even then they've tried to diddle me out on an extra year I have pointed this out too.
    I've also asked for all the relevant forms and HR are doing their best to as obstructive as possible. Really want it all over with so I can move on. Still need to get my stuff from my desk as well.

    I have no INs or UUs, so I suppose that's ok

    A few years ago I had moved to another office in the same organisation, when they made my position redundant a couple of years later they gave me 4 weeks notice and offered statutory redundancy pay, forgetting that I had 14 years service and was entitled to 12 weeks notice or pay, red faces all round when I reminded the area manager of the relevant facts, they sort of had the last laugh as I had to work the notice period, however, the situation was unavoidable and there was no ill feeling ( the whole lot folded about a year later)

    I hope that it goes well for you. (hugs)

    My wand....my lovely but VERY LHJ Madame butterfly wand that I made myself at our shop nearly 2 YEARS AGO!!
    I keep adding a bit to each bath to use it up, it is nice but the smell isnt as good as rose queen or rose jam whcih I would prefer to buy anyway, so its taken forever to use this...
    I was doing the usual little stir of it at the start of the bath and it BROKE, hooraaaahhh! Meaning i could then crumble the remaining in as a bubble bar instead and thus use. it.UP
    This was on PP last month but I took it off cuz it was bugging me so...
    now it has gone, muahahahaha! And the stick has a nice message on from one of my lush friends (more junk for me to hoard)

    Off to enjoy my bath now....oh and Potion is spluttering so this could be a double celebration tonight, happy days
    Don't turn a slip up into a give up

    Sorry to break it to you, but I started to see the bottom of the pot months ago! I didn't mind the smell so much, but if it helps you, I used it up quicker by applying it again before bed. It works quite well as a night cream - it's the right consistency. I probably could have used a second moisturise instead for the day time, but opted instead to focus on one.

    I've only been using it as a night cream as I use my PCMC during the day. My skin has felt lovely in the mornings - shame about the smell of this stuff.

    back to work tomorow for the 2nd consultancy meeting, TBH not sure exactly what the point is. At the last one they gave me the redundancy info as well as details of the money due, only statutory and even then they've tried to diddle me out on an extra year I have pointed this out too.
    I've also asked for all the relevant forms and HR are doing their best to as obstructive as possible. Really want it all over with so I can move on. Still need to get my stuff from my desk as well.

    I have no INs or UUs, so I suppose that's ok

    My thoughts go out to you asset. I went through a botched redundancy consultation some years ago and the whole experience was horrible. I took my former employers to a Tribunal but they still won against me. If I were you I would think long and hard whether you actually want the job or not. In my experience Employment Law seems to work in favour of the Employer.

    Also have another UU from my PP and a very sad one:-

    Decleor Herbal Clay Mask - my HG and I have no others in the stash. It's too expensive (27.00) to stock up on and I really can't justify buying one before Christmas.

    Am feeling rotten today. Have a barking cough that started out last week as a tickle but now is one of those body shaking ones. Have an appointment at my GP this am.

    asset - hope today is not too dreadful. 10 years ago I took voluntary redundancy whilst on maternity leave, I had left for maternity on good terms but things turned very sour during the process because they made a complete mess of it all and didn't like it when I pointed it out their mistakes to them.

    I have a uu

    Benefit That Gal Brightening Primer - this is fine as a primer but I don't see any brightening effects so WNBA. This one was a mini from Glamour I think and I may have another this size.
