Monthly Beauty Basket #useitorloseit



At the beginning of August, I decided to designate a basket in my bathroom specially for products that I want to work on finishing up. These are products that I don't reach for everyday and they are either expired, almost expired, or almost finished products.

It's turned out to be a great idea! I started the basket on August 4th and I have been reaching for all of these products daily now, so I will be able to finish them up and not let them go to waste.

Since it's working out so well, I thought I'd share this idea with you guys. Maybe some of you will want to try this out so you too can finish up products before they expire or go to waste.

Most of these are products that I forget about as I have so many different products that I rotate through.

Having this designated basket of items and keeping it in an area where you will reach for it is a great way to focus on finishing up those products.

I will do monthly updates on my progress and changes I make to the contents of the basket as I add new products and remove those that are finished.

I lined the basket with a paper towel incase of any leaks.



Products to use up:
Note: I only continue to use expired products if they have not changed in any way; look, scent, consistency. If any of those things change, I do not continue to use an expired product, it would get tossed instead.

Hopefully, I've inspired you to use up some products before they go bad. I think this designated basket is a great way to remember to use up all the products that you want to focus on finishing up.

    1. Thanks, Tal! I'm loving this system. It's really helping me use these products up which otherwise may have eventually gone in the trash from going bad. xo

  2. I've been thinking of doing this myself as I have some mini sized products and a few moisturisers that are at that annoying nearly-finished stage! It's a great idea :)

  4. You're so smart hon I Have everything I need to use up on my bench, but there's so much stuff I can never remember what should go first, so I'm inspired to cull it back and just leave out what's absolutely essential to finish - thanks sweetie xxx
