I will also include the dates used, given away, purchased or added in parentheses.


5. Outline your criteria for if/when you will use your pass to purchase 3 products/quarter (12 products/year): I will only use my pass when purchases in any of the listed categories will keep my Current Count at less than 20 total items (changed from 42 on February 5th & from 35 on March 25th).

I'm listing my entire inventory because everything is up for grabs. I will come back and update this post whenever there is a change.
  • Current staples/HGs will be labeled with a * and will most likely be repurchased when the category gets to one
  • Items marked (j) belong solely to DD
  • I'll gray out items when they are used/given/thrown away
  • Hopefully purchases will be kept to a minimum, but when there is one it will be marked with a +





Outline your criteria for if/when you will use your pass to purchase 3 products/quarter (12 products/year):

I plan to purchase only when a category reaches one and I need to replace a product. I'll try to resist sales, but sometimes staples will be gotten with a discount (although this is the gateway to trouble). That will be my pass.

I just finished off my Curly Kinks DC today, which brings my total to 44 remaining products, so I won't be able to participate in tomorrow's BOGO sale for Shea Moisture products.

Oh well, I should be able to catch the next BOGO sale.

I NEED PRAYER: I am curious if Walgreen's has the new Shea Moisture product lines and I know I will fall off the wagon if they do because they are having the BOGO sale. Please pray that I will just keep my behind out of that store.

I will ma'am. I had to force myself to keep driving today :lol:

I'm rolling along building up a nice empties stash to report here soon. :grin:

One question: say I have an oil mix and empty one of my oils into it. Do I have an empty when I empty to oil into the mix or when the entire mix is gone?

I usually estimate how much of a product I'm adding to a mix and when I use that same amount of the mix, then I count the product as empty.

Total Stash = 47
Product is staple

4. Explain what system you will use to update your list (i.e., different colors/symbols to denote used/purchased items or items added from your current stash):

Staples are italicized and pink. I do monthly empties and almost quarterly stash updates. I just copy and paste the list and anything used up, I just remove.

5. Outline your criteria for if/when you will use your pass to purchase 3 products/quarter (12 products/year):

Given that I'm so low on leave-ins, I think that will be the bulk of my purchases this year. I'll try to keep it under 12, but if I go over, I'm okay with that.


I'm currently working on the Mizani products. The shampoo has the potentialto be a staple and I would repurchase the conditioner if I didn't have so much other conditioner to use up. After I'm done with those, I'll start working on the Joico products. My goal for the end of this session is to get my total stash count to 40 or less.

Today I knocked out 3 products: Alikay Cowash Me, Fekkai Glossing Cream & Embrace The Natural You DC. It looks like I will be able to use up 3 or 4 more by the end of the month.

BTW: I successfully avoided the BOGO Shea Moisture sale. Want He do it!!! Thanks for your support ladies during my time of crisis.

I will be back!

I think I did pretty well last year until Cyber Monday lol.

However, I shouldn't have to buy anything until at least July (except for shampoo).

I'll update my stash tomorrow.

I just updated my stash by adding 13 new products. As I was looking at my stash, I have some products with very little to less than half in the bottle. So those items are on my hit list to be used up first.

I have a feeling that I will be adding more & more items as the year goes on.

I bought some sweet almond oil last night. All the oils I have now are essentials oils that need to be diluted.

I really want to try the new Shea Moisture lines. Luckily for me, I have no idea where to get them from lol.
