All those little bottles of shampoo, conditioner, soap, creams, toothpaste, razors, and shoe polish, from hotels, gift baskets, and eager sales people? I've got about 3 large zip lock bags full of them, and I'm finally going to use them.
I know... I should save them for traveling, right? Do YOU use those when you travel? I don't! I think I will, but I don't. I either travel with small bottles of my tried and true products, or I use the small bottles provided by hotels and bring home about 5 to 10 more little bottles and soaps by the end of my visit. And if I'm visiting relatives or friends I again bring the products I'm used to, or I use their stuff. They like their stuff. Maybe I will too!
So these zip lock bags full of tiny little bottles saved for traveling? They haven't been getting used. But they are now!
I will not be buying any new toiletries until I've used up all the stuff in those bags. I reserve the right to try something, decide I hate it, and throw it out if needed, and in an emergency I still have some of my regular products on standby, but the assortment of tiny bottles and soaps will be my only source of bathroom supplies until they all run out. - Which I think could take a good year or two!
Some of these last longer than I expected. I'd been thinking that each product had enough for one use, but not so! A small "packet" of toothpaste (Think foil packet that ketsup comes in at a fast food place) is lasting me a full week, and sample bottles of shampoo and conditioner are lasting about that long too. Soap seems to last forever (even the small ones) and I rarely use moisturizer so lotion samples will probably last forever too.
I'm kind of excited by this! I like using up stuff. I just hope nothing blinds me or turns my hair green.
