November Project Pan

I’m going to start with the hauls for the month because I got a bunch of new stuff. My birthday was on November 4th so they were all gifts, including a gift or three from me to me.  I also made an order from the Sephora sale but I didn’t get them yet so that will be a post for another time.

I’m so grateful for all the stuff that I got but as I was trying to figure out where to put everything, it really made me realize just how much stuff I have. I don’t plan on asking for any beauty products for Christmas and I don’t plan on buying anything else for myself for as long as I can hold out… or until I run out of something that I need!

I desperately need to finish some things so I can have a little more room and not waste what I have. On the bright side, I managed to finish off another nail polish and I made some progress on two others! Here are my empties for the month, 10 in total which is great!

This is everything I plan on finishing off this year, I know the mascara will be done in another week or two and the body butter won’t last too much longer either. Most of these are samples which I think is realistic for me to work through as long as I remember to use them.

Here is the body butter from The Body Shop, can you believe that is my first ‘pan’ ever? I was so excited when I saw it!!

Some nail polish progress. I think I’m going to switch out the colours though because they aren’t exactly fall/winter ones.

Some small lip product progress was made. I’m hoping to finish at least one of them. The Lipstick is the perfect fall/winter colour so I should make some decent progress on it.

I’ve been using the eye shadow trio on the right but I didn’t feel like I was making any progress. I remembered my other trio that I barely used and pulled it out to see a difference and I’m glad I did! It definitely made me feel better though it’s a little hard to see it in the picture.

I finished off my perfume last month so this is the one that I’ve been working on. It’s Victoria’s Secret Love Struck. It’s a lot stronger but that’s better for the winter. It is also a lot smaller so it shouldn’t take me forever to finish this time!

As I mentioned earlier I just have an overwhelming amount of stuff right now so I plan on doing an inventory. I have no idea where to start though so I’m going to put it off a little longer.

Do you guys have any suggestions on how to do this inventory? How do you guys do it?

  1. I’ve tried all methods. I have a hand written list of every product (name & color) by category. I have an excel spreadsheet with even more information (price, when purchased, notes etc). And I also have made blog posts about each section. Honestly, it’s whatever works best for you. I think the excel sheet is the best way to have more information at hand (would you repurchase, was it a sample or full size etc) it’s also quick to update without having to write an entire new list. You can also tally up $$ totals this way.

  2. I count inventory by category. All the perfumes, body lotions, face powders, lipsticks. I did a blog post for each category and took pictures of everything. I have 47 nail polishes. It really is eye opening and sobering. I never need to buy a nail polish again. I have every color I need.

      1. I felt overwhelmed at first as well, but then I realized all the money I was saving afterwards. I don’t feel the need to buy anything when I know that I am fully stocked for a long long time. I haven’t spent a penny on any bath or body product on myself this year or a nail polish or a perfume.
