One of my goals for 2017 was to try and spend more time doing things just for me, I thought I’d start off easy by taking something I currently deem as necessary and then making it a bit less functional and more about me
I’ve opted to attempt to have my baths on my own, as much as I love having one of my children laughing and pointing at me naked screaming ‘Look at your boobies Mummy, LOOOOK!’ or pointing out my C section scar before bringing in her own doll into the bathroom and pretending to cut herself open and give birth to her own doll by section whilst laughing hysterically; I have to say I feel somewhat more relaxed when I don’t have an audience.
So nice and easy – and I’ve even got loads of products to use to look after myself!
Ok well maybe I’ve got too many products and this is just toiletries, in fact my bathroom and bedroom is overflowing with all sorts of bathroom toiletries and skincare from full size products to trial samples (courtesy of my Look Fantastic monthly box), I could open up shop and give Superdrug a run for their money
So onto my challenge, as it stands I’ve got way too much cluttering up the place, and it’s all well and good having all these lovely toiletries and skincare but they don’t do anything unless you actually use them.
THE TOILETRIES CHALLENGE
This year I shall not be buying anymore toiletries until I run out of something, i.e. No shower gel means I can go to the shops and buy some, no moisturiser means I can look for more -BUT I’m going to do those on a budget which means budget brands, sales or if I’m lucky review them for companys, infact I’m going to attempt to keep my toiletry and skincare spending down to just £20 for the whole year -eek! I’ve decided this won’t include SPF (skin cancer isn’t money saving) and if my children need specific fragrance free toiletries this will be omitted (but I won’t be using it!)
I’ll be making a list tomorrow of all my current toiletries and skincare swag and will be updating monthly with what I’ve used and what I’ve spent!
Is anyone else feeling inspired to clean out their bathroom cupboards and take on the challenge?
