    No Buying Unnecessary Toiletries February 2015

    No Buying Unnecessary Toiletries February 2015 1st Feb 15 at 8:52 AM
    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 Dolly84 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 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!


    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. Ladies - congratulations, you are an inspiration to the rest of us, xx . Thanks also to InaPickle who suggested we start the Graduate list. To join the list of graduates let us know by posting that you are graduating in big colourful letters, that way the OP can easily spot you and add you to the list, or better still - PM the OP as the thread can move really quickly! You may also wish to add how many products you have used up during the challenge. Good luck ladies! xx

    I have so many toiletries that need using up. I have ordered 2 more lavender bubble baths from Avon (ordered them a couple of days ago) for DD. Normally £3 a bottle but half price ATM so got 2 which should last me all this month. It helps relax DD before bed but as I ordered them last month would it count as buying this month? I need to pay for them when they come.

    Hello everyone,

    I hope you don't mind me joining, but I have started to develop a terrible habit of hoarding and acquiring toiletries, nail varnish and make up! My cupboard is stuffed full of things, and I think I need your help and support to get this under control

    I will post a list of what I have in the cupboards as soon as I have a chance to write it all down, and sort out a PP list for the month. I have a couple of things that are nearly empty, so they think they will be a great place to start.

    I read along last month's thread so I think now I'm ready to join in. Thanks for having me!

    I'm back. I didn't UU nearly as much in January as I'd have liked, but it does mean I have a few items soooooo close to finishing that February looks to be a much better month for me

    Seeing how many items some of you declare as UUs was almost enough to scare me off - but as I don't even know what more than half the items a lot of you mention are I don't know how many of them are 'one time use' (like my face mask, or bath bombs which I don't use as I don't have baths ), and I don't include (as so rarely use and own very little) makeup which means I have less on the go.

    This section shows the items I have open and out for everyday use in my en-suite and cloakroom, as well as in my gym bag and in my travel washbag (which gets left at the holiday home from our first visit until our last each year so has to be well equipped - owned by a family member who's kindly given me permission to leave a couple of boxes in the garage).

    Hi everyone,

    Went abit AWOL in January but I was still catching up with the thread just didn't get to post!
    Had some INs
    Lancome bi-facil 200ml (larger size) which they had on sale at the counter in Boots so was only a couple of ££ more expensive than the 125ml and I had finished my other one.
    S&G big box from the Boots sale - I can't decide whether to give this away as a present or keep it for myself! I'm not a HUGE fan of S&G but it was £18 from £60 so I couldn't resist!
    2x S&G Eau la la Orangeasm gift sets also in the Boots sale - these will definitely be given away as presents. Nice smell but I really don't need any more shower gel/body lotion.
    Ted Baker bubble bath

    and a few OUTS
    Harmonie calm moisturiser sample - WMBA - this is for sensitive skin and i've had it before but doesn't do as much good as the clinique redness solutions.
    Lush Dream Cream - WNBA - didn't like the plastic smell
    Herbal Essences seductively straight mask - WMBA - this was nice, worked well but I don't think it was much different to the normal conditioner of the same range.
    Lancome bi-facil eye make up remover - WDBA - See above

    I'm very close to finishing a few bits so hopefully will have some more UU soon!
    I'm off to London for an overnight stay tomorrow...i'm bridesmaid for my best friend in August so me and the other 3 bridesmaids are organising the hen do and having a planning session tomorrow evening. Hopefully I will have time to make it for a quick jaunt round Selfridges at some point before I come home!

    Bought is to buy. Brought is to bring.

    Getting there but still a long way to go until I'm happy with the numbers, as we struggle for storage. I've been doing well with INs so hopefully this month will be the same.

    Thank you so much for all the recommendations! Think I'll avoid the other due to be discontinued blusher why do brands do this to us?!

    The no 7 blush I've seen before and it has a definite shimmer which I'm not too keen on.

    Have you looked at mua. I think they have a similar colour. I think it might be shade 2?

    I think I forgot to declare two small INs (both free - one was a gift):

    Body shop pomegranate lip balm - so delicious!
    Sample pot of the new body shop sleeping bouncy mask - really has been making my skin feel plumper, although it hasn't really touched the dry spots I've had this week (I've been ill with a virus), so it's not as intense as it makes out.
    I've also got a bottle of avon skin so soft on the way, but that's an essential ready for next month's trip to avoid getting bitten to death by mozzies!!

    I have a couple of INS after declaring my stash for February!

    Veet Hair Removal cream
    Imperial Leather Foamburst Honey and Almond
    Imperial Leather Foamburst Sweet Vanilla and Cherry Blossom

    Managed to resist No7 vouchers as have pretty much everything I need, and they always bring out vouchers anyway.

    Takes me up to 50 items.

    Bought is to buy. Brought is to bring.
