Trash Stash: November to December 2017

Here’s a combined Trash Stash post for the last 2 months of 2017:

I forgot to take a group shot and was too lazy to take the items out of the bag for recycling. ๐Ÿ˜›

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.ย  I decided to do a big post instead of separating into 2 posts, so grab a cup of hot tea. โ˜•

Trash Stash: August to October-ish 2017: Part 1 (Skincare and Sample / Travel Sizes)

You guys, I have 3 months’ worth of Trash Stash to share with you! I wanted to post this last week but we were in the middle of refurnishing our place and we didn’t even have dinning room table / chairs or a couch. But there’s no excuse that I left this for 3 months… I have no one to blame but myself! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I didn’t even bother trying to fit everything in this shot. ๐Ÿ˜›

I understand if you may want to go for a coffee break while reading this post. I’d just be happy if you read the beginning and the ending like I used to do with each chapter of Harlequin Romance novels! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve broken my Trash Stash into 2 posts to reduce the length – here goes:

Trash Stash: June and July 2017: Part 1 (Skincare and Sample / Travel Sizes)

Since I skipped June’s Trash Stash, I’m breaking up this post into 2 parts instead of overwhelming you with a monster post. ๐Ÿ˜› Here’s about half of what I used up in the past 2 months:

The first part will be solely focused on skincare and sample / travel sizes, and part 2 will be on the remaining beauty products.

Trash Stash: May 2017

This month was the month of finishing up a lot of facial skincare:

I finished both my day and night creams, plus a bunch of other essential face product. So weird how that happens.

Trash Stash: April 2017

A couple of housecleaning items to kick off today’s post. ย First: May the Fourth be with you! ๐Ÿ˜€ And second: I seem to be in spam hell once again. I’ve left a bunch of comments yesterday on various blogs and they all disappeared. ย It’s so frustrating when that happens – can you please check your spam box? Click here to see where your spam is located.ย Thanks!

Onward to my April Trash Stash! This month turned out to be ok for empties – I thought I’d have only a few to show but I am on an ambitious plan to clear out my cabinets of items that just aren’t working for me.

It was fairly well balanced in terms of skincare, body, hair and makeup stuff, actually.

February 2017 No-Buy-Low-Buy Accountability

February is a No-Buy month for me! I mentioned in my January accountability post that if all goes well this month, I’d have nothing to show. Well, February went well but I do have 3ย things to show:

I didn’t buy any of these items myself, I swear! ๐Ÿ˜‡

trash201701_2
As you may recall, in my 2016 Trash Stash summary post, I expressed interest in trying to achieve 365 empties for 2017 (aka 1 empty per day). Let’s see how I did.

Two Face Creams Face Off: The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream and MAC Studio Moisture Cream

I didn’t really know how to name this post – but basically, I’ve been using two new nighttime face creams recently. ย The first one, I started using and reacted badly to, and the second was to the rescue.

Can you guess which was which?
