Here it is! The inventory list I promised!
Just as a friendly reminder… I am an avid, enthusiastic couponer, (not extreme!) shopping and saving heavily in the drugstores. I have accumulated a stockpile of products. If you have been reading my blog, you have seen pretty much what I have bought and spent. lol My New Year’s Goal or Resolution is to deplete my stockpile throughout the year of 2012. Yes that means no more drugstore shopping unless of course, I run out of something. However, to make my goal/resolution more realistic, I am allowing myself a monthly sample box and in April at IMATS NYC I get a free pass. I’m only human. :)
So here goes!
These first few (okay many) products currently in “use” or in heavy rotation. I tried to approximate how much I have left of most items.
In my shower currently:
Products under my primary bathroom sink:
Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream (3/4)
Garnier Mositure Rescue Light Weight UV-Lotion (1/2)
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque (3/4)
Freeman Cucumber Peel off Mask (3/4)
Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil (mixed with castor oil, bottle is ¾ full)
NIVEA Sun-Kissed Radiant Skin (1/2)
Jergens Natural Glow Express (used 1x)
The only makeup I’m going to list here are my foundations. I obviously will not be buying any new eyeshadow or liners for the entire year since, let’s be honest here, I will never run out. I may run out of black liner… :)
Current hair treatments*:
John Frieda Full Repair Perfect Ends Deep Infusion
Got 2b 425 degrees heat protect ‘n blow out
Redken Shine Flash glistening mist
Pantene Restoratives Frizz Control Anti-Humidity Hair spray
*I moved over the summer and the movers did not pack up liquids. Half of these were brought to my mother's house in MA while we were in transition (back and forth between MA and NC) and a couple weeks ago I picked up my perfumes and other items that had been left there.
Products in Secondary Bathroom:
This is my true couponer’s stockpile, I mean nothing like the Extreme Couponing show depicted but a ton of product nonetheless. I have also provided a count if there are multiples:
AVON Naturals grapefruit & mint shimmering body lotion
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Flawless Finishing Cream
Nexxus Pro-Mend Split-End Repairing
Nexxus Sleek Finish Silkening Lotion
Shampoo (10 bottles total):
Conditioner (3 bottles total):
Now if you are a couponer, you are in the know and you only buy toothpaste when it is a money maker!
So in my closet I have a cloth drawer shelf unit, filled with unopened makeup, samples, etc or as I would like to say, back ups. I will go through them all.
Some items are for review, others are for a giveaway I am planning soon!
Top left: Sample box drawer. I leave the samples in the boxes until I am ready to try them. Right now I have both the November and December Birchbox and Bluum box. I have one more Bluum box before my subscription ends. I have 2 pairs of false lashes a ton of AVON lipglosses and mark. products that I will give away as samples to customers.
Top right: Samples & travel sizes. Too numerous to itemize but here I have samples from Ulta, samples from Sephora Mystery Bag, samples I send away for that I get in the mail, I recently got a bag full of organic and natural samples from a Drugstore.com Seventh Generation Diaper order. I will do a post on that one! There are perfume samples, samples from the sample boxes that I have tried and not tried etc… All travel sizes end up in here.
