Project clearout

Hands up if you have a ridiculous collection of half used toiletries, foundations, shampoos or samples stashed away in a deep dark corner of your room/bathroom cabinet…!

I am the WORST for this. I buy new products all the time and end up hearing about something else before going off to trial that one too. Quite simply I am a marketers dream. However, since this year has been all about saving money for me, putting every last penny in a house fund i have really had to be cautious with my money and stop spending for the sake of spending – girl problems right?


So i am slowly working through my drawer full of half bottles and successfully finishing each product – hurray! After having gone through 2 face washes already believe me when i say i still have another 5 to go…!

Unfortunately project clearout is harder to adapt to foundations as for me it’s either too dark, too light or too oily for my skin – the ones which are too oily are ditched without any hesitation. Those which are not quite the right colour i keep hold of as it comes in handy when mixing foundations – a little trick for when you’ve just come back from your holiday or if you’re a little on the pasty side.

Whilst saving money is no fun and giving up a few luxuries is painful i did discover some great alternatives that are real money savers with great results. Here are just a few below…
