Decluttering - Day 10


I have tons and tons of samples around here, so I gathered them all up so they are in one place. I have enough shampoo and conditioner to last me at least a month! I have them in a cute little container sitting by the shower, so I remember to use them. My goal is to use up the samples before I continue my use of 'normal' sized products. I love freebies but they are kind of pointless if they just sit around taking up precious space!

I use my samples when traveling--it makes for a much lighter load and there's nothing to bring back home.

Another really great thing you can do with sample sizes like that is donate them to a homeless shelter. I know mine passes the hotel size ones out to clients to use when they shower.

Keep up the great de-cluttering job!

Thank you! Both of those are great ideas!!! I'm flying in August and those bottles take up so much room and weight.

great idea :) i like using up stuff that's almost empty to just get it out of my hair.

i actually save mine up for vacation - its easier to pack them. i have a closet specifically for my drug store purchases and my samples go there.

I let my kids use the samples especially the shampoos and conditioners. Children's shampoos and conditioner are so overpriced and so I have stopped buying them and let the kids use our products. They don't need a lot so we don't go through them as quickly. The only thing about using the samples is keeping a pair of scissors nearby, I can never open them up!
