Mini Mission ~ Wednesday 4OCT2017

Declutter, or start a use-it-up mission on, something that you constantly pass over to use a similar item instead. This might be a toiletry item such as a hair product, hand cream, body wash, purfume etc. Or maybe an ingredient in your kitchen, or a crafting medium, or even something as simple as a pen you don’t like the flow of… I am sure you can think of such an item.

I am going to set myself a challenge to use up some of the cardstocks in my craft stash that I never use. And maybe some embellishments too. To be honest, I suppose, I do this all the time because my whole craft stash is a use it up mission for me. But there are some colours that I prefer that I am beginning to run out of, so this mission will delay the need to replace them.

  1. Hmm. I have three things of deodorant, 1 little bottle of body wash, 2 hotel bottles of shampoo, and a few mostly used depilatories.

    Gave the shampoo to my husband to use, and am going to use the rest up or throw them out.

  2. Got rid of a hair product I tried and didn’t like. Also, A barely used highlighter pen tore up today so in the trash it went. I have another the same color so won’t be replacing. My huge stash of writing utensils, I’m happy to say, has really dwindled down over the last couple years. Used up all my colored writing pens except a dark green one. (This is not counting red). Actually, am down to just what I use on a regular basis, which is miraculous!!!

  3. Oh, forgot to add that the old microwave and an upholstered chair went to the dumpster yesterday.
    Yay!!!!!

  4. I am on a use it up mission with hair conditioner. I am down to the last one that I kept bypassing but it’s actually not too bad.

    • Hubby and I did a use-it-up lotion mission last year. Turned out that I had 4 or so tubes of cream…same brand as my lotion. I used all that, then started buying it instead of the lotion.

  5. 1 pair of sports socks that I always pass over because they’re thinner than the others. Need to quickly look through my sock drawer to see if there are more.
