No waste this week!  T’was kinda easy actually – we didn’t buy that many fresh / perishable items AND we’ve been diligent on eating up leftovers. Spaghetti with meatballs for breakfast anyone? 😀

How’d you do?

On Friday’s, I share what food items that I have ‘wasted’ by letting spoil during the week from forgetfulness and/or neglect. Kristen over at The Frugal Girl has inspired me to publicly post in hopes of reducing waste. (Food Waste Friday is now being co-hosted every other week with Simply Being Mum – pop on over to take a peek!)

Continuing on in my challenge to use up the HBA items I have stockpiled as well as all samples/trial sizes I have stashed away, its time for an update.  You can read about why I started this challenge here as well as my last update here.

Let’s get to the nitty gritty shall we?

That’s a total of 21 tiny bottles outta that cupboard!

Live Clean Fresh Face Refreshing Facial Wipes

Total of 11 full sized items outta that cupboard!

Now as I read over the list, I’m quite shocked and impressed that I’ve been able to use up all these products. Can you imagine how much all of this stuff costs?!  In a way I feel blessed to have a stockpile to pull from but at the same time, I want to go out and try/buy new ones. In good conscience, I can’t spend that money on new versions of things I already have.  It just doesn’t make sense.

Oh and by the way, in case you’re wondering –  I have been enjoying the empty spaces I am seeing in the cupboard however now that my lil one arrived early, its starting to fill up with necessary items for him.  However, I am not stockpiling his items. Yet. 😀

If you’ve joined me (or wish to join me) in this challenge – how have you been doing? What have you used up lately?
