So since about May of this year I have been super into the idea of project panning. Basically, project panning is focusing on using up your makeup by using certain items specifically until they're all gone! I'm not sure what about it is so interesting to me, but something is.
As you guys know, I've been getting a lot of samples over the past year. Like, way more samples than I could possibly use up right away. Even after cancelling my Birchbox, I still get 3 other boxes a month! This leads to a lot of samples, and a lot of things I want to try out. Because of this, I have so many little items just sitting around and gathering dust.
I've decided to gather up all my samples from back in 2015 and make sure they all get used up in 2017! As you can see, however, there are two different projects listed above. That's because while these projects do work together in a way, they are still separate.
My project use it up is where I list specific items (in this case, the samples I received in 2015) and try to make sure they get used up throughout the time period.
If I happen to have items from each category in both projects, then it makes my life even easier! I know the pictures are a little hard to see, so if you're interested in more detailed items let me know and I can type them out onto the blog itself. I mostly did this so you could see the set up!
My rolling project pan has 5 colors to mark each quarter of this project. I put a number behind each goal in the color equivalent to the quarter to show how many products I used up in that quarter. I actually started this project in the beginning of October because I had this all set up and was so excited!
I store the products I'm using specifically for my Project Use it Up in a mini organizer that has 3 drawers.
Well, that's all I have for you guys! If you want a post specifically on the products I want to use up, let me know! I'd love to show swatches and where I got them from.
Have you ever tried to do a project use it up? Do you have any of these same products? Let me know!
