You may know that I like a good challenge. Having recently successfully completed some no spend and use up moisturiser challenges, I thought I'd embark on some new challenges for 2012. My challenges are two-fold, trying to use up the stash of products that I have and to try to save money. We're saving up for a new house and the less I have in my stash, the less I'll have to take with me when we eventually move!
Today I'm posting about my shower gel challenge. My challenge is to not buy any shower gel for the whole of 2012. I attempted this last year, but failed, buying three shower gels during the year. I probably could have succesfully completed this challenge if I hadn't bought them, but it would've been very difficult. Anyway, that's not the case this year. My shower gel stash is brimming with products, swelled with Christmas and sale bargains. I've also received lots of bubble bath at Christmas and as I rarely take baths, I use this in place of shower gel. I have not doubt that I will successfully complete this challenge with shower gel and bubble bath to spare.
The photo of my stash shows I have 28 shower gels and bathing products. I've also got one open that I'm using at the moment as well as one I forgot to include in the photo. So that's 30 in total. There's no way I'm going to use these all up by next Christmas, but I'll give it a good go. I'm certainly going to hold myself to not buying any more shower gels in 2012. I'll post occasionally about which ones I've used up.
Are you planning on any challenges in 2012?
Thanks for reading! xx
