PROJECT USE IT OR LOSE IT!

My stash is OUT OF CONTROL.

While I fully accept that I am a product junkie (I don't see it changing ANYTIME soon...) I do want to use up/give away/throw away any and all products that have not made the cut in my HHJ. For the next year, I will be in complete Use It Or Lose It mode.

I will not buy any new products without giving away/using up/throwing away another product that my hair hates (or forgot about...).

My sole goal is to get rid of some of these products that I've been hoarding holding on to for coming up on 3 years...

Anyone want to join? Accountability buddies? =)

Until next time,

Shika

    1. Hahaha NO! **takes a firm hand** (you can use black friday as a goal date to have gotten rid of/used up some products tho! That's approx 4 wash days away!)

      The way my BF wish list is looking, 4 wash days isn't enough! I'm SUCH a PJ!

  8. I have had this mind frame for a while. I don't have a huge stash and I don't want one. My plan is to only repurchase my staples until I get rid of all the stuff I'm not amazed with.

    1. I feel you on not wanting a big stash... if you think about it, when would you have time to use up all that crap??

      Delete
  9. I've been in PJ Rehab for years now....almost finished with extra products. It has taken so much longer than I thought it would to use up this mess. I will cheer you on. Go ahead and take inventory and cross the products off as you go. I was so ashamed when I created my PJ inventory. I couldn't believe I was spending ridiculous amounts of money on products. I am about 3-4 months from my staples only regimen. I will cheer you on!!!

    1. OMG that's what I'm scared of.... taking inventory. Cause right now it's so bad that I have products that I FORGET about... I sometimes remember a particular product like "I think I have that..."

      Sigh.

  10. Girl. I just sent my momma home with literally a BOX of products for my lil cousins. Not even all "bad" stuff - just stuff I know I'm not gonna use! Especially after Soft Sheen Carson just sent me some stuff and I racked up at the last Kerapro sale. I'm set for A WHILE!!!!

  15. Conditioners you no longer want = shaving cream!

    Or "just because" gifts for friends/family who like those products.

The products that I use are bought with my own money unless other wise stated and are for personal use. I am not paid to show any products on this blog! Results are on MY hair, but that does not guarantee that products/methods/techniques will work the same for you (though I HOPE they do!!) Happy Hair Growing!!
