    After I dye my hair some time this weekend, I'll put up my session 4 tally as well as my year end totals.

    Happy New Year everyone. I haven't been on but I have used up a lot of my stash (about 75%). I have four boys who run through my product like crazy. I am always giving them the eye but.. I had way too much stuff.

    Fourth quarter update: I did alright. I used up 8 items. I acquired 10, 1 was a reup (plus 4 extra backups:look:), and 2 were items that I re-added to my stash that I had previously put in DD’s stash. I expect to do much better for 2019. Headed over...

    3. 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): Products in red will denote ones that have been used, given away or repurposed, products in #green will denote purchased products (the # will identify purchased products if the color changes), products in *blue will denote products that I found in my current stash (the * will identify the products found if the color changes), and products in purple will denote products that I am targeting to use up for the current quarter. I will also include the dates used, given away, repurposed, purchased or added in parentheses.


    4. By the end of the challenge, what is the total number of products you hope to have in your stash? 150 was my goal, but my ending count was 175. #2 above lists my starting products for 2019 minus the 11 cowash products, which now fall below the number of products I want on hand for that category.

    I'm giving away Curl Junkie Curls in a Bottle because it doesn't have enough hold. Even when I use it as a refresher gel, it's a no-go.

    Also giving away the As I Am Dry and Itchy Scalp oil. It leaves a residue on my hair.
