Trash Stash 2015 summary

A “side effect” of my No-Buy was the opportunity to dig into my stash and use up what I already owned. ย I didn’t imagine that I would actually go through so many products each month! And now looking at the full year as a whole, I’m quite proud of my accomplishments. ๐Ÿ˜€
12 months’ worth of empties!

Stats of my Trash Stash:
โ€ข I documented 173ย finished products during 2015 (133 were full-size products and 40ย were sample / travel size)
โ€ข On average, I finished 14.4ย products (full and sample size) each month
โ€ข The highest number of products I used up was 28 in October and the lowest was 7 (Jan and Feb tied)
โ€ข The average rating I gave to all the products was 7.8 out of 10
โ€ข Skincare was the main product type I finished up (46%) followed by body / hair products (36%) and then makeup [mostlyย mascaras and base products] (18%)
โ€ข I noted that I would repurchase 52% of what I used up, 38% I would not repurchase, and 10% I may repurchase

However it’s important to note that many of the items that I wouldn’t repurchase do not necessarily mean I don’t like the products… many of the products are discontinued and I can’t repurchase! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

        1. Yes, being on No-Buy definitely gave me a sense of relief… like I didn’t have to make ANY decisions about what to buy because I wasn’t allowed to buy anything so I just focused on other things!


    1. It was really good to tally everything – makes it all seem worthwhile with all the tracking of the monthly empties. I think it helped to solidify my resolve on sticking with the N0-Buy (and now Low-Buy for 2016)!
