I forgot to set out the strict rules I'm going to adhere to for the next 365 days. Here's the plan.
- List every single beauty product I own, whether they're sample size or full size.
- Do my best to either finish the products and toss them (recycling the container when possible) or get rid of them if I absolutely can't finish them for some reason (my skin reacts badly, it makes me physically ill, it makes me look like a clown, they're expired, etc.)
- The next one here is crucial. I am not allowed to buy new products until I have finished the entirety of that category. For example, no new foundation until I finish/get rid of every single one I already have in my possession! (Ack, what am I doing to myself???) [Exemptions: blush, eye shadow, eyeliner, lippies and nail polish.]
- The only way I can get new products are under these strict conditions:
(a) if I run out of an entire category (I'll have a new post dedicated to each category);
(b) if they are given to me as gifts;
(c) I need it in order to accomplish something extremely important (I can't imagine what at the moment but life has a way of throwing curves at you the second you make vows)
