    I have far less in my stash than I thought. I was able to put all my remaining products in 1 bin vs. 2. I probably still have 6 months worth of a few things. I just wont buy anything buy staples for the next few months.

    Bought 2 jars of Mielles Babassu DC and 2 bottles of the Pomegrante & Honey Leave In during their BF sale. Both are staples I've been out of for a while.

    That was the only thing hair wise I bought for Black Friday. #progress lol

    Almost the same here. I've gone from a full shelf in the linen closet to a small corner. I have maybe a year or so of product if I don't buy anything new.

    I was good on Black Friday. I'm running low on daily spritz base, so I bought two bottles. Other than that, I bought gel.

    To keep myself motivated, I watched decluttering videos on YouTube :drunk::spinning:

    I'm doing inventory now to see what I'm carrying into 2020. I have a lot of samples which I hang onto. I hate wasting a sample when I haven't figured out what works for my hair. I'm hoping to be able to use them in the summer :pray:

    I finished up my cowashing conditioner last night.

    I'm on track to finish another 4-5 products by the end of the year. No plans to buy anything but if the after Christmas sales are looking right, I might get some staples.

    I recently finished or got rid of the following Curls Cashmere & Caviar Hair Bath(not going to miss), As I Am Coconut Co-Wash ( will miss through I go back and forth between this and The Doux cowash) and Shea Moisture Silicone Free Miracle Styler Leave in Treatment (didn't like it and the spray pump wasn't effective).

    Well, well, well! Call me a liar. I just finished up Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother. Excited! DD must’ve been heavy handed when she used it last night. I’m going to add two things to my stash and then no more buying except for reups. I need a purple shampoo to make my grays less yellow and I am just dying to add Cholesterol into my rotation.

    I finished up my bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil pre-shampoo balm. I won't be finishing up anything else this year. I'll have my quarter tally and all year update up tomorrow or Thursday.

    I didn't see a 2020 thread but I'll probably be sitting it out. My stash is still big but it's mostly because I have backups of staples. So getting it down is a matter of time, not my will to use stuff up.

    Total for End of Session 4: 54

    I did a lot of great work during this session but I got a few hair care gift sets for Christmas. And I did place a few orders during the after Christmas sales. So my numbers will be going up soon.

    Overall I'm happy with what I accomplished through this challenge. But I also know that it's time for me to move on from it. I'm still very much a product junkie but I'm not really try a bunch of new stuff as much as I'm repurchasing my tried and trues over and over. 2019 taught me that I much prefer to buy in bulk during a good sale and then go months with my stash until I need to reup. So I'm going to just do that moving forward.

    I think my long(er) term goal is to really get my stash down to maybe 10 products and have backups of those. I won't be able to do it in 2020, but maybee 2021/2022 will be my stash down year.
