Project Use Up (2014)

Here’s to a thrifty 2014!

In 2014:

  • I will be repeating Project Use Up! I’d love if you joined me; leave a comment below if you’re in!
  • I will be limiting myself to 10 new products (excludes basic toiletries like cotton balls, q-tips, basic shampoo/conditioner, nail polish remover OR replacements of products I use every day).

At the beginning of 2013, I had two goals:

  • Project Use Up: Use as many items as possible (beauty, nail polish, toiletries, etc)
  • 13 for 13: Only buy 13 (THIRTEEN) of these types of items during the year 2013

I highly recommend a “Project Use Up” because:

  • It forced me to use up products that were about to expire/that needed to be used up
  • It provided a sense of satisfaction every time I finished a new product
  • It saved me money!

  2. I am with this … my blog is suppose to be in a part about project 10 pan. I am trying to put a few post but I have like one or two products holding me back from posting. Uggh, its hard out here for a blogger, LOL

    1. Ugh Project 10 Pan…I tried that twice in the past and let’s just say I bought more than when I wasn’t on Project 10 Pan haha 🙂 It is definitely difficult, but it’s also such a good feeling when you finish something all the way up!!!
