I’ve had this post brewing for a least a year – originally it was titled “Blogging Etiquette” but what do I know about manners? 😛 I suppose it can be viewed as passive aggressive to post this now, as I am departing from the world of blogging. At the very least, I hope this will get you to think about blogging practices, and how it affects other people.
Let’s get the Don’ts out of the way first. Warning: I swear in this post. 😇
It is universally agreed, I have a hoarding problem. As a parting gift, I’m letting go of some of the items in my stash, as well as some goodies I picked up especially for this giveaway. These are all brand new, unused, full-sized products.
I know, I know. I just posted about makeup decluttering and here I am, showing stuff I’m adding to my hoard. Never did I once say that I wasn’t shopping anymore! (I was just making room? 😆 ) And, I didn’t go as crazy this year with post-holiday sales.
You may recall that the primary objective of this blog originally was to reduce my beauty stash. I had a three-pronged plan: A) Stop buying more (No-Buy / Low-Buy) B) Use up what I have (empties aka Trash Stash) C) Get rid of items that I no longer use (Purges / declutters)
This post is focused on plan of attack C! I’ve been meaning to post this since early 2017 for “Spring cleaning”, but never got my act together to gather all of the items. No time like now, right? 😉 This post will mainly consist of photos and product names listed out. It would take too long to provide a description of every single item with an explanation why it is being decluttered. Just look:
Gosh, you guys! I never expected to have the kind of feedback in my previous post. Thank you. Truly. ❤ To give you a time frame, I still have posts planned that will take us into February. So I’m still here. Let’s set all that aside for now, ok? 🙂
Nerd alert: I’ve been looking forward to doing this summary for the past few months. This is the third (and final) year that I’ll be doing this tally:
My goal this year was to achieve one empty product per day for a minimum of 365 empty products. Let’s see how I fared.
Here’s a combined Trash Stash post for the last 2 months of 2017:
I initially felt that my steam dwindled a bit toward the end of the year to finish up products but once I started to list them out, I found that I did finish quite a few items in the last 2 months. I decided to do a big post instead of separating into 2 posts, so grab a cup of hot tea. ☕
