Noticing a lil bit more empty shelf space in my HBA stockpile cupboard, I decided to take a look at my list to see how many samples I truly have used up.   You can read more about my personal challenge/goal that I decided upon here.

Trial / Travel Size
Organix Noursing – Coconut Scent (shampoo & conditioner)
Vidal Sassoon – Repair (shampoo & conditioner)
Vidal Sassoon – Moisture (shampoo & conditioner)
Herbal Essences – Hello Hydration (shampoo & conditioner)
Pantene – Moisture Renewal (shampoo & conditioner) – two sets
Tresseme – Moisture Rich (conditioner)
Olay Fresh Effects – Shine Go Away/Shine Minimizing (Face Cleanser)

That’s a total of 14 trial sized items outta my cupboard! Woohoo!!


Keeping with the theme of using up what I have in stock (har, har) I decided to keep track of my full sized products used up/finished off as well. These could’ve been partially used up products that were placed back into the cupboard (or elsewhere) to be used at a later date or something that didn’t work at the time I decided to use/try them.

Full Size
Nivea – SOS Hand Cream (50ml)
Pantene Pro-V – Fine Hair Volume Conditioner (1L)
Glysomed Hand Cream (50ml)
Bath & Body Works 3-in-1 (Body Wash /  Bubble Bath / Shampoo) (16oz)
Carmex Lip Balm Stick
Body Shop – Satsuma Body Butter (50ml)
Garnier Body – 7 Day Ultra Moisturizing  Lotion W/Mango Oil (400ml)

That’s a total of 7 FULL SIZED items outta here! Yikes!

WHOA!! 21 items OUT! That’s a lot products used up for 6 weeks if you ask me.  (this doesn’t include items I have deemed not worthy of using up and tossed)

I’m so glad to see more and more space in that cupboard while knowing I’m saving money by not going out and buying more. Who doesn’t love saving money and shopping at home? Nothing more frugal then that right?

Now – I need to continue making more room so I can  start to stockpile baby care items next LOL (Sad thing is, I’m half joking and half serious)  Eeesh.

Anyone else doing this lil challenge with me? What have you used up recently?
