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.
