If I Finish This, I Will Purchase That...

In conjunction with my Project 10 Pan, I have decided to do a "If I finish this, I will purchase that".

I really want to start minimizing my collection and only have items in it that I actually enjoy using. I have too many products right now that I'm just "meh" about. On top of that, there are a few (non-makeup) items that I WANT but really don't NEED. I'm hoping this will help my budgeting and keep me on-track with my spending.

My next goal is going to be to actually count how many items I have in my collection and compare it to how many I'd like to have ideally.

To Finish:


1 Eye Primer
1 Face Primer
Hair Towel
2 Concealers
Shower Robe
5 Foundations
Curling Iron
2 Powders
Label Maker
1 Bronzer
1 Blush
Plastic Container
3 Eyeliners
Plastic Container
2 Perfumes
Plastic Container
2 Face Serums
Plastic Container
3 Shampoos
$25 Clothing
2 Body Washes
$25 Clothing
1 Lip Balm
1 Lip Gloss
$25 Clothing

Here is my rationale for the rewards: 

- I currently have a hair towel but the button broke off. It's still usable but I'd like a new one.
- I have an ancient shower robe that is shorter than I'd like. Ideally I'd like a long terry cloth robe. 
- Since moving out of my parents place, I no longer have access to a my sister's curling iron that I would use occasionally. 
- I will be moving in my new house in May of next year and would like to start packing away some seasonable items. That is what the label maker and plastic containers are for.
- I need to put a cap on my spending and have been finding some really cute, inexpensive pieces from Dynamite Clothing lately.

Are there any categories in your collection that you want to minimize?

Project Pan #2

It's Friday! I have decided to embark on a second Project Pan, but this time it will be a Project 20 Pan. I still have a lot of products I need to work through in order to significantly reduce the size of my collection. This one will prove to be a bit more tricky as it is the holiday season and there are sooo many cute things. 

Here are some things on my WANT list:

What's on your list?

De-cluttering the Stash

Since my Project 10 Pan finished a few days ago, I wasn't sure what to do next. I still have items I never use and I still need to save money. I decided that step number one was to organize. As I was organizing however, I noticed that I had a lot of products that had gone bad, were broken, didn't react well with my skin, etc. I threw out a ton of stuff that was just plain dumb to keep. A majority of items I've given to friends and family, while others I've decided to work through. PinkSoFoxy on YouTube inspired me to go one step further and donate unused/ unopened items to a woman's shelter. This is the perfect time of year to donate cosmetics. I've also included some gently used clothing, etc., but for the purposes of this blog I will only show the beauty related items. In my next post I will go through the rest of my items and see from whatever is left what I can give to family and friends (products that are gently used).

Here's what I'm giving away to the shelter:

This is the skincare:

This is the makeup:

These are the body products:

What do you think I should do next to minimize my collection? Another project pan? 5 out 1 in? Any other ideas? I`m really committed to this.
