Project Pan #2

It's Friday! I have decided to embark on a second Project Pan, but this time it will be a Project 20 Pan. I still have a lot of products I need to work through in order to significantly reduce the size of my collection. This one will prove to be a bit more tricky as it is the holiday season and there are sooo many cute things. 

Here are some things on my WANT list:

De-cluttering the Stash

Since my Project 10 Pan finished a few days ago, I wasn't sure what to do next. I still have items I never use and I still need to save money. I decided that step number one was to organize. As I was organizing however, I noticed that I had a lot of products that had gone bad, were broken, didn't react well with my skin, etc. I threw out a ton of stuff that was just plain dumb to keep. A majority of items I've given to friends and family, while others I've decided to work through. PinkSoFoxy on YouTube inspired me to go one step further and donate unused/ unopened items to a woman's shelter. This is the perfect time of year to donate cosmetics. I've also included some gently used clothing, etc., but for the purposes of this blog I will only show the beauty related items. In my next post I will go through the rest of my items and see from whatever is left what I can give to family and friends (products that are gently used).

Here's what I'm giving away to the shelter:

This is the skincare:

This is the makeup:

These are the body products:

What do you think I should do next to minimize my collection? Another project pan? 5 out 1 in? Any other ideas? I`m really committed to this.
