August Empties & Expireds

This month is a little different, I went to use one of my favorite lipsticks early on in the month (or maybe in late July), and was appalled by the stench coming from it. And it, not quite burned, but it definitely tingled on my lips when I had it on and it doesn't normally … Continue reading August Empties & Expireds

June Empties

After a few months of really hefty empties posts it feels very nice to have a slightly more normal level of empties this month. I also am slightly annoyed with myself because three of these empties are because I can't resist samples/trial sizes, particularly the Ouai samples because I requested them, whereas I didn't even … Continue reading June Empties

May Empties

I've been on a bit more of a buying moment lately than a use up moment, and I have been using what I buy so I have no guilt about it, but I need to put a freeze on the buying and really lean back into the Project Pan and get some stuff used up. … Continue reading May Empties

April Empties

There was definitely a net gain when it comes to beauty products, skin care, and stuff in general this month. It was needed, my clothes were in rough shape, I couldn't do a full face of make up because I literally didn't have the products (and by full face I mean a full face of … Continue reading April Empties

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

January Empties

We are entering year 2 of keeping track of the cleaning, hygiene, and beauty products that I have been using. I find it super interesting, and I don't think I expected to. When I went in to doing a Project Pan last year it was all about editing every product I used down to a … Continue reading January Empties

A Full Year of Project Pan

I thought it would be interesting to reflect on a full year of tracking the empties that I used up throughout the year. So overall, I don't know how effective it was, I still have a lot of product, but the majority of it is stuff that I use every day now, I have a … Continue reading A Full Year of Project Pan

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

August Empties

I was actually pretty surprised when I opened my empties shoe box and saw how little there was. This is probably a product of my no-buy month, but I felt like I used a lot up this month and I definitely need to do a skincare order/shop very soon. I'm going to get more into … Continue reading August Empties
