To recap June, I have completed 35.5% of the project and that is 71/200 items. I needed a really good catch up month and I think this past July was the month for it. I was able to use up quite a lot of products, so I should be having at least a couple of review posts up in September from July. Right now as I am writing this, I am on my last week of the semester and I am finishing up two powerpoint presentations. I hate writing presentations. I am not good at them. I would much rather write a paper than do a presentation. I am not artistic and I just don’t have a flare for that sort of thing. Anyway, that’s completely off the topic. Let’s see what I was able to use up/declutter in the month of July that counts towards my 200 pan goal.
13 items to add to the project. I hit pan on the liquid lipstick from bareMinerals. I am currently trying to use the whole thing up now. At this point, I had to remove the stopper, which I count as “panning” lipsticks/lip glosses. The Mark lipgloss has gone bad as I was trying to use it up. Every time I use it too much, it dried out my lips and caused cracked lips with some bleeding. I used up one full sized eye liner and three deluxe sized samples. The Urban Decay dried out before I could use the whole thing. I depotted two color correctors and three eye shadows. I would never use the green or the orange correctors. The black, dark purple, and dark blue eye shadows are ones that I never wold have touched with my hooded eyes. I decluttered the purple glitter, because who am I kidding?! I am also decluttering the Sally Hansen leg makeup, because it looks orange and rubs off of my skin. 84/200
Another 5 rounded up! I finished a full sized toner, eye serum, and eye cream. I finished up two deluxe sizes of eye cream and baby wash. I would repurchase the toner, but I can go without everything else seen here. 89/200
7 products to add to my list. I didn’t see this bubble bath, so I didn’t repurchase. I would repurchase it though. I bought the Equate knock off of the little Aveeno baby tubs, but I think I prefer the $3 tubs. I do not think that they are created equal. The deodorant was really nice and I would repurchase it again at Marshalls. The Degree spray I would not repurchase. Another sunscreen. Might have a few more sunscreen empties by the end of summer and next year we will need to buy all new ones! 96/200
I wanted to show you all Dean’s smile, because I love it! ❤ 96/200 is a really great way to catch up. I am 48% done with this challenge. I am so close to being half way down that I am smiling ear to ear. I really want to make it and have really put in the effort in July. I laxed in August, which you will see. So, I need to really step it up in September to make up for it by using up more of my stuff. I need to finish at least 10.4% of the challenge every month in order to complete it by the end of the year. So that would be like 20 products a month. I know that I won’t make it for August, but I will try to have an epic September like this month was. At this point, I don’t think that I will make it, but I am still going to have fun trying.
