I have been looking at my stash. I think I can go almost year without buying anything at least.

I might buy some stuff if sallys has a liter sale or a 4 for 20 but otherwise I wont buy anything until the end of the year or longer.
I could probably go 3-4 years. Only thing I would need is hair color because I refuse to live with these grey hairs.

Finished up a travel sized Briogeo leave-in yesterday.

I have to color my hair some time this week so will be having quite a few empties by the end of the month.

Q3 Update

Used Up

Shampoos: 0
Quick/cowash conditioner: 2
Deep Conditioner: 3
Protein & bonding treatment: 2
Leave-in: 8
Oil: 0
Styling: 2
Color Care: 4

Total: 21

Did not finish the exact products I set out to but I did finish the goal amount. Me and my decisions about styling being ADHD did not help with usage goals.


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).

Strike through to notate products that have been used up. I usually give my update at the end of each month.
New products that came in will be updated on my Google Sheets doc. If I plan to use them up, I'll add them here in green.
Decluttered items will be noted with a red fill color.

I think I did okay with the monthly updating. Not many strike throughs because I honestly forgot what items I was supposed to work on.

5. By the end of the challenge, what is the total number of products you hope to have in your stash.
Clearly, I've been over shooting way too much so I'm keeping it simple this quarter. If ULTA has their 10x points day again in August, I will get a few items but not go crazy. I would like for my overall stash to decrease to under 200 products and using up this is enough to get me to that goal.

I went crazy at the 10x points sale. So much so that not only did I not get to under 200 products, my stash went up by almost 40 items. And I still want to buy something.

I'm about to go back into Knotless Braids (3rd time this year) so I haven't used many products. Putting my favorite products in green so it's easier to keep track of things I plan on repurchasing once they are done.

Shampoos:
- Melanin Black Soap Shampoo
- Adwoa Beauty Blue Tansy Gel Shampoo

OMG I needed this challenge so badly back when. I currently have successfully with the help of my sons have NO STASH to use up. I was tempted to buy a new deep conditioner and said naw. I have a years' worth in this bottle since I don't use it that often and I don't need a ton of product for my hair.

Push on everyone, you will be through your stash in time!

Ms. Nobody
Finished a few products but not enough :bricks:

I was very moderate with my black friday spending but I really need to go on a no buy for at least 6 months to a year. I always say im going to do a no buy and fail though:look:
