Let's talk about goals!

Last year, all I really wanted to do was to cut down on all my makeup/personal care products a bit. I think that experiment was a resounding success! I beat my goal by something like 500%.

This year, I want to do things a bit differently. I'm still pushing hard to use up some of the many, many products I still have in my stash (I don't even want to count...). However, I want to shift my focus a little wider, and partake in the 365 Less Things challenge. The general idea is to give away, throw away, use up, donate, or sell one item every single day. I think I can make this work! We have so many things that are really just taking up space, and I'm making it my mission to make it happen!

So... without further ado, here is my list for January:

- C. O. Bigelow Lemon Hand Treatment lotion (85 g)

- The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover (60 ml)

- LUSH Fairly Traded Honey shampoo (100 ml)

- LUSH The Comforter Shower Cream (100 ml)

- LUSH B Electro shower gel (500 ml)

- Benzagel Acne Gel (15 g)

- one pair of knee-high boots

- 3 bras

- 9 t-shirts

- one blazer

- one tube top

- 2 shirts

- 4 pairs of pants/jeans

- one cardigan

- one stuffed bear

- 2 books
