Well, I say "continued" as if I've made any headway. What I have decided to do however, is use things up before I buy replacements. No more stocking up at Costco as there clearly isn't an Apocalypse on the horizon and with a corner shop less that fifty yards from my house, I'm hardly going to be really stuck for anything.
How many of you have more than one face cream/cleanser on the go? Hmmm, thought so. I knew I couldn't be the only one who doesn't finish the jar of night cream completely before opening the one I was suckered into buying because of its patented anti-something ingredients. It's not that I don't use everything up - eventually, it's just that well, I don't know. I like variety I suppose.
I am also going to refrain from buying any more Ziplock bags until I have worked my way through the FIVE boxes I already have. Why do I buy them every time I go shopping? It's not as if I even use them that much since, in an effort to be green, I wrap the boys' sandwiches in empty cereal bags.
As for gift bags - well, it might help if I actually gave them away with the gifts, but no - I keep them for something special. How insulting is that to the recipients of my presents? "I'm not going to use the really nice, sparkly gift bag for you. You can have a plain one and I'll just put a nice bow on it."
And fake tan? I have four tubes of fake tan in my closet. As we know - most of them can take on a slightly orange tint, so we're always on the lookout for the one that looks natural. Given that three of the four fake tans are presumably inferior, shouldn't I have just chucked them out? What the heck am I keeping them for? And now, of course, I can't remember which one is the good one. Pah!
Stain removers are another problem - I have about three or four in my laundry cupboard, meaning that most of them aren't removing anything. Let's face it - once your clothes have gone through the dryer not even straight bleach gets a stain out. Hopefully I won't have enough stains to get through my supply in the near future, but I shall pledge not to buy any more this decade.
So peeps - what is your guilty hoarding secret?
