Project Use It Up - AKA: BUS

Hello friends, I am changing the name of my monthly BUS report to "Project Use It Up".  Just thinking it better describes what I am trying to do.  Its been awhile since I have done an update.  I went on vacation and when I got back a number of things went down.  I had a changing of the babies.  Isaac went on to big time daycare, so I had to say goodbye (sniff).  And I began taking care of my grandson (smile).  And then there was some big events that happened with my younger son and his wife.  So I just did not feel like blogging too much. Anyway, here is my Project Use It Up report. 

Okie dokie, pictured above is the current shampoo I am using, Andalou lavender & biotin.  I am about halfway done with it.  I smells good and is gentle, but for the most part I don't notice anything special.

I have been using these A La Maison products in the scent Thousand Flowers.  I've used about a 1/3 of the soap and probably 1/2 of the lotion.  I like the smell which is very light and springy.  The lotion is light and absorbs quickly.  I like the lotion a lot, but they have discontinued making it.  Bummer!

In this picture of products I used up the lavender scented snowflake soap and the blue bottle of lavender lotion.  I've only used a 1/4 of the liquid soap.

I finally got my lemon collection out.  I am currently using all of these products.  The Hugo lotion in the scent Lemon & Bergamot is 3/4 gone.  The bar soap is about 1/2 gone.  And the lemon shower gel from Germany, I actually have two tubes of it.  I've just about finished one tube and will soon be using the second one.  As far as the Out of Africa lotion, I am using that as a face cream, I've used maybe a 1/4 of it.  And last, but not least, the Deo from Germany (which I LOVE), I've used about a 1/4 of it.

So that is my update.  I am so happy with myself because I have not been buying any new products the past month or so.  I do look every once in awhile, but I know I have stuff at home so I tell myself not to buy.  I have 3 collections yet to get through which are:  Coconut, Sea Salt, and Honeysuckle.

I like seeing these posts because they encourage me to use what i have, are thrifty, and you offer opinion on the different products. The La Maison products might be found on ebay or amazon.

Hi Sherry! Thank you for your comment & help. I didn't know I could get A La Maison on Ebay. I've recently become a big fan of Ebay. I also like when other gals post about how they are using up products, it is very encouraging. As for A La Maison, they are still making soap products, they just are no longer making the lotion, which I love. I am connected with A La Maison on Pinterest and they said they are coming out with new scents which is exciting.
