100 empties in 100 days - Challenge starting January 2015

Recommended Posts

Since I like shopping - a bit too much - its evident I like acquiring things.  Since I have a significant stash of makeup and other beauty products its evident that I like having things.  Though in sharp contrast to acquiring things and having things - I'm not using enough of the products I have so the accumulation has gotten a bit out of hand.  Having a low-buy or a no-buy goal is only going to resolve half of my problem.  My personal challenge - as listed below - is going to help me start to reduce my stash and I hope the reduction is significant.  After all what's the point of having something -- unless you're going to use it?!?!

 

In the first 100 days of 2015 - I want to generate at least 100 empties. My rules are as follows:

  • Full-sized products and Deluxe-sized samples count as one item used.  
  • Two foil packets count as one item used (i.e. one shampoo foil + one conditioner foil = one item used).  This is sort of a personal incentive to use the foil packets and just make them go away since I generally dislike foil packets and don't normally use them - hence the accumulation.  That said I definitely don't want the majority of my empties to be from foils.
  • Some products need to be tossed and replaced like eye lash primer, mascara, and liquid eyeliner though they may not be used until the product is gone - I generally toss and replace these products because I see them as expired.
  • I will consider a full-sized pressed blush or a full-sized pressed eye shadow 'used' when I hit pan because I want to put a serious dent in my blush & eye shadow collection in 2015 and this is a good way to get started.
  • The vast majority of products have to to be used until they're gone in order to count.
  • If there is a sample that I don't like and don't use until its gone - I will toss it and it won't count for this challenge.
  • If I accumulate 100 empties before 100 days is over, I will not stop.  Rather, I will see how many additional empties I can generate.

Through out the course of this challenge my empties are going to go in an empty identical bin so I can keep track of my empty container progress one item at a time.  I will provide updates periodically and a final tally at the end.

 

 

Sorry for the short notice ladies -- is anyone else up for another challenge?

I love this idea! I'm not going to make it a specific goal of 100, just because I've started a lot of full-size products recently. I AM going to keep track of what I use up or toss out.

Love this challenge as well! I won't be doing 100 because I don't subscribe to any boxes and I tend to use or toss any samples that I do get right away anyway. Plus I just finished and repurchased most of my essentials. But I do plan to keep a list of everything I finish this year and I'm hoping to put a dent in more of my makeup.

I don't use things up very often, and I don't get tons of samples since I have most of my HGs all figured out. However, I'm going to keep on using the monthly 'used it up' thread to track what's what.

 

I keep a bag on the handle of my closet doorknob that I toss empties into and then at the end of each month I take a pic, post there, and review what I've used.

 

I love the idea of using up 100 products in 100 days, I also love how you're not 'cheating' by using up lots of foils, since you address that. Awesome! Good luck to you and anyone else who embarks on this challenge. I wish I could do it, but I don't think it will be possible for me. I think I could set a smaller goal of.... 40 items in 100 days!! I'll try that!

Thank you for your words of encouragement.  I am definitely pushing myself outside my normal comfort zone to do this and I think this 'challenge' for self is only going to happen once because I don't want to accumulate a bunch of products like this ever again.  Its not like I am a frequent traveller and its not like I have lots of forgetful house guests.

 

As I said before, I don't like using foil packets and I have accumulated a bunch of them.  Many of the foils actually contain very nice products and more than one use and/or more than one of the same product.  I guesstimate that no more than 20-25 per cent (or so) of my final tally will be the result of used foils and imho any more than that seem kind of silly.

 

For some odd reason I like holding onto things and sometimes leave the last bit of product inside a container for a longer period of time than I probably should before I use the last of it or toss it and I don't know why I do this. All I know is that its got to stop.  I think I will be able to rid myself of this strange little habit I have developed by taking on this challenge.

I do this too- I just keep it because.... why? I really don't know. I guess I don't want to 'run out' of some things, even though if I'm not using the last bit, obviously I don't need it. My logic defies me!

I'll still update monthly in the 'used it up' thread, but when I get to each quarter mark (25, 50, 75, 100) I'll post here!!! YEAH!!!

 

Thanks for inspiring me to take on this challenge! It'll not only help me be more excited about not buying things, and consequently help with my no-buy, but it will also push me to use things before the go bad and are a waste!

I hope that after 100 days I have a somewhat smaller stash and a healthier mindset.  Ideally I will be more focused on using the products in my home and far less concerned about buying more product than I realistically need.  Without a doubt it will take a while for me to dwindle my makeup stash down to a reasonable number of items and this seems like a good start!

I agree- I want to whitle down my stash of things so that I don't ever feel the need to create an 'inventory' again and I'll just know in my mind... I don't know, we'll see!

 

I edited my post with my list of items and added numbers so it's easier to read.

Yesterday I finished my first product of the year!

 

1. George's Aloe Facial Spray

 

I also tossed 17 lip products, mostly glosses. I already feel a weight lifted! I used some of my dry clay mask this morning to work on using it up - I prefer my tube of hydrated clay

Here is a list which I'm going to consider a just general guideline for my 100 products in 100 days.  I have listed over 100 products.  There will be impromptu additions, impromptu omissions (if I try and dislike a product), and there's a chance I may fall short of using a few products until they're gone.  

 

In some cases I have picked products from my stash to target - i.e. eye shadow and blush.  The products I have picked are the ones which excite me so I will want to use them.  I think I'm going to really enjoy this.

Just a quick update:  While I realize it is still early on something kind of exciting and unforeseen is starting to happen.  I am trying different things and so far a have fallen absolutely in love with a couple of them.  While I don't think I will go out on a shopping spree after this is over and buy all of them I think I am going to have to treat myself to a few new things before the end of the year and after I have made a solid reduction in my beauty stash.  Since I am feeling kind of inspired though its too soon to share at the end of 100 days I plan to make a list of the 10 best and probably 10 worst items.

I have a quick question... if you use 100 items and there are still days left in the challenge are you going to continue with the challenge beyond 100 items?

I would love to join in and use up all my samples, and a few full size if I can. I will use this thread and post as I go along, rather than list right now what I want to use up ... I'm very close in finishing a few full-size items this next week. I had joined Birchbox in June as a way to get nicer samples for things I might want to try in the future, because I was feeling stalled with my limited makeup/bath/body collection. I "only" own 150 products (not including samples), and now my samples total close to 50 so I just need to start using them in conjunction with my full-size items as well.

That is such a awesome idea to make a list of the 10 best and 10 worst products that you used up in this challenge! I'll do the same.

 

Actually, I kind of love this one deluxe size product I'm almost finished with. I don't think I'll repurchase it though, but I'm really enjoying it and I'll have to remember to add it to my list!!!

 

I have a quick question... if you use 100 items and there are still days left in the challenge are you going to continue with the challenge beyond 100 items?

yes, I think I will continue on. I like the idea of using up items that I either have too many of, or using them up before they expire. What about you?

I'm going to treat this as a 100 day challenge.  Inside 100 days I'm going to see how many empties I can generate - the more the better.

I'm excited as I already have 11 empties and it keeps growing more every day!

 

I plan on posting my monthly used it up in the Offical used it up thread but I plan on saving all my empties and at the end of 100 days taking a picture and posting it.  I am curious what 100 empties will look like!  Or the potential for more than 100.  I need to find a bag big enough to hold them.

Good idea! Me too! If I get past 100, keep going!!!! Now that I'm discovering my holy grail beauty items plus colors that work on my skintone, I won't need countless samples of stuff lying around anayway!

Go you!!!! That's awesome!

 

I also want to save all mine and take a huge picture at the end. Hahaha, I'll keep it in my closet I guess. Right now they are in a paper gift bag on the handle of my closet door, but that'll fill up fast. I might go with a box instead of a bag... but we'll see!

 

ETA: I discovered another lovely product that I tested from a foil packet last night. It was a hair oil, and I just couldn't believe what it did to my hair today! Damn, may seriously consider purchasing this when my no-buy is up!

Ok, so I wasn't planning on the goal of 100 empties, just trying to use up a lot of the sample/deluxe sizes that I have. For some reason those are my weakness beacuse they are perfect for traveling or for my purse. However the one vacation and handful of mini trips a year does not justify my hoard. And while I was just starting to organize my samples I pulled out a box and went "Hmmm... what's in here?"  Oh, guess what it was? A whole box of haircare samples and minis. So I think that now I will try to aim for 100.

I've missed this thread. I generally keep track monthly in the "officially used it up" thread, but I don't set a goal of how much I use. I would guess I go through about 30 or so products a month, however, I am nearly out of foils so I'm not sure how much I will use up from here on out. But, I want to keep track! So far for January, I've used up:

  1. Lush Bubble Bar (don't remember the name...the label had come off. It must be discontinued since I don't see it on Lush's site).
  2. Lush Bath Bomb-Northern Lights
  3. StriVectin Labs 5-Minute Weekly Glycolic Peel
  4. Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel - deluxe size
  5. Desigual Fun Perfume vial

I am planning on keeping mine in the closet too.  I use a thirtyone gifts tote bin thingie for the monthly ones and I am going to take a big paper shopping sack like VS or something to keep them in after I post monthly.

 

I too am finding out about great products just by using them!  Who knew? lol Today I am proud of myself for wearing a product I would normally never wear (a tinted sunscreen) While I will not buy it or seek out products like it I am happy I went out of my comfort zone to try something new and got an empty out of it haha

ETA: I discovered another lovely product that I tested from a foil packet last night. It was a hair oil, and I just couldn't believe what it did to my hair today! Damn, may seriously consider purchasing this when my no-buy is up!

 

What is this magical elixir? I'm all about hair products and would love to know!

I just saw this thread for the first time; I'll join everyone. I would like to keep reducing my stash and I think my general goal will be 1/3 full size, 1/3 deluxe size, and 1/3 foils. I'll keep a bag of empties (even though my husband will think I'm a nut  :) ) and make monthly posts and see how far I can get.

 

Thanks for the idea - it's a good companion to the 100 day no buy
