UO= Unopened

By the end of the challenge, what is the total number of products you hope to have in your stash.

Total 86. Goal 50


But really I just only want staples and their multiples.

Right now I'm just trying to use stuff and get the number of opened stuff down before I can work on the unopened stuff. I didn't realize How big my stash has gotten since I have been protective styling under wigs. Products that would have been done already are still full and/or unopened. Will probably use up more stuff in the summer when i plan on wearing my hair out again but I may go into 2023 with some of these products barely used and unopened. As long as they are sealed (they don't expire unless you open them) I am OK with that.

Going on a strict NO BUY until June unless its a staple and COMPLETLY EMPTY.(which shouldn't happen because I have stocked up on all of my favorites) I'll see if I'll extend that to the end of the year when the summer hits.
