November Update

I can hardly believe how quickly 2014 has melted away.  Thanksgiving is next week!  I continue to be busy, which I guess makes time fly.  However, I am not keeping up with my housework so well.  It is nagging at me, but I just don't have enough energy.  With working (daycare for a 10 month old), visiting with my grandson once a week (who is 9 months, crawling and sporting two new bottom teeth), Bible study and volunteering at the church, well, there isn't much left.  On top of that my younger son moved back to Colorado from California last month.  That has added some soap opera moments.

Anyway, I continue on with riding the BUS which brings a sense of accomplishment.  I have finished some items from my BUS.  I finished up a couple bars of soap that I did not take pictures of.  I also finished a bottle of lotion and there are a couple items that are approaching empty.

Of course I have added to my BUS.  Lots of A La Maison, due to the fact that it was found at TJ Maxx at less than half the cost I pay at Whole Foods.  And in varieties that Whole Foods does not offer.  A La Maison is versatile, because I can also use it as a shampoo.

Here below are pics of products I have used up.

EMPTY! I used up the lotion in this picture.  The soap is nearly gone.  I particularly love the fresh, clean scent of Rosemary-Mint.  It reminds me of Christmas.

In this picture the Vanilla-Orange lotion is almost all gone. When you have to take the pump out to get the last bit of lotion, well you know you are almost there.  I am also approaching empty on the Jason Vanilla scented lotion.  I have used a 1/3 of the Hugo Orange-Vanilla shampoo.  I am not sure how long I am going to keep using it though.  For some reason it has turned completely white like milk.  Maybe because it is old?  Who knows how long it sat on the shelf at the store.  I got it on clearance.  Anyway, I am not hugely impressed with it, but it was nice to try it.  I think I will stick with Hugo lotions though, they are nice.
