What I’m Buying in April

I think that April is going to be a month that I focus a bit on starting to build a wardrobe that is realistic for my current circumstances, rather than aspirational. I love clothes, I love dressing up and wearing pretty dresses and pretty shoes, but I also hate attracting attention to myself (says she … Continue reading What I’m Buying in April

February Empties

We're back, it's another empties post. I've included a couple different things this time. Partly because I want to keep track of the different coffees I've tried and what I think of them and how many bottles of salt I go through in the winter so that I can stock up for next winter, and … Continue reading February Empties

December Empties: Lotion, Mascara, and the Germolene fan club

It has been a full year of logging my empties and tracking my waste and doing a Project Pan, I'm going to go through them all and see if there are any conclusions I can draw or lessons I can learn. But December was a very normal month, although I have to say that I … Continue reading December Empties: Lotion, Mascara, and the Germolene fan club

October Empties

When I picked up my empties box today I thought it must be packed full because it was so heavy. It was decently full, but I think that most of the weight came from the couple empty glass containers that were in it rather than a great abundance of used up product. I also have … Continue reading October Empties

July Empties

This was a big month for using stuff up. Some of it makes sense, a few things I have been using since last November and some were purchases I had to make because I haven't yet got used to having to be prepared and planning ahead to avoid using plastic/packaged products. This is a great … Continue reading July Empties

May Empties

It's that time again! Time to check in on what I used up in the month of May. This is part of me tracking what I use up for Project Pan, actually learn what I like versus what is trendy/ if I am being influenced by social media, and keep track of my plastic waste … Continue reading May Empties

April Empties

Compared to March it looks like I didn't use anything up this month! Mostly, I just finished up some samples that I have had for several months. The nice thing about a Project Pan is that you actually do use those random things that you have accumulated over your years of purchasing. I do see … Continue reading April Empties

March Empties

This series is to help keep me accountable in my journey to reduce my single-use plastic consumption and Project Pan progress. This empties post is a little different. I don’t have a nice big class photo of everything this month because I couldn’t bring myself to pack up and haul what is basically garbage across … Continue reading March Empties

February Empties

So this is partly to help keep me honest about what I consume that has packaging/ keep track of my low buy/Project Pan. Also, when I moved home early January and was going through and KonMari-ing my stuff (still not done btw, when reading her book I was like there is no way it takes … Continue reading February Empties
