As a beauty blogger and lover, I'm constantly trying out new cosmetic, skincare and hair care products. However, over the past 2-3 years, I've been attempting to reign in my shopping and work through what I own through a comprehensive inventory system, periodic No-Buys, and yearlong Project Pans. Although my preference is always to finish up the products I buy, decluttering is a necessity when you own a vast beauty collection. The below products are beauty items that I have decluttered this past Spring, excluding those products that I am currently trying to sell on Poshmark. Although the total number of products decluttered is not greater than the number of new items that entered my collection, I still view this declutter as a small victory. It takes a lot of mental toughness to think critically enough to declutter beauty products, because of the personal attachment I place on these goodies. Please keep reading to see what I moved out of my collection this Spring!
According to the Daily Mail, we'll spend an average of 3,680 hours searching or 153 days searching for lost items. On average, we lose about 9 items a day (198,743 items in a lifetime)! But just imagine - if we spend this much time just looking for lost items, how much more time do we spend cleaning? As a beauty blogger, I spend a lot of time and money buying and organizing cosmetics and clothing, but I want to reduce the clutter in my life.
