    My name is Dolly and I am a toiletry hoarder

    Anyone else.

    I'm vowing to use up every last drop of all the toiletries I have before I buy any more.

    Will post back later with the current haul I'm using before I get to move on to the next which is lurking in the cupboard somewhere.

    Good luck. How much do you have to use up? Once you have used them up are you going to try new brands/own brands (if you don't use them already)? I use Boots own brand shampoo, conditioner and shower gels at less than 79p each. I think that we can all do with running down toiletries at times. That doesn't mean of course when we need to buy new we cannot take advantage of offers.

    I think I am going to stick to the same brands, I might change mu mind at a later date though.

    I do have quite a lot, had a clear out the other day and realised I need to stop buying!

    I'm a terrible one for when there is a bargain buying loads then putting them away and forgetting about them!
