You might remember that I blogged here about my obscene ownership of way too many cosmetics…..
I realised that I was making great progress simplifying many areas of my life, but there were still areas of consumption that I was virtually blind to. I really love this process of simplifying, because the new “normal” is challenged after the passage of time, a bit of adaptation and some furthering thinking about consumption. It’s a lovely, thoughtful process.
Anyways, I thought I would post an update on my progress. This drawer contains my empties. As you can see, in six or so weeks a little bit of progress has been made, but man I’ve got a heap to get through.
I’ve realised that in order to get through THE LOT I am going to have to think of some creative ways to use all of my cosmetics and beauty products. One idea I thought of is to use excess moisturiser as conditioner, when my conditioner runs out.
One really interesting challenge is that I have that I have plenty of half used lipsticks…Any ideas? Facial toner?
