Project Pan January 2014

Well then. I’m back from my trip, I own too many things, and honestly, it’s just all around time for a Project Pan. A project pan can work a few different ways, but basically my goal is to not buy any more products until I finish all the ones in this post. For some of those that will be easier than others, but my plan is to update my list with new products as I finish some. My goal is not buy anything, but my more realistic expectation is to keep a record of anything I buy (beauty-related) after this post goes live, and keep it to $20/month. Hopefully I can manage without it, but I wanted to give myself a tiny bit of wiggle room so I don’t feel like I failed if I find a good deal… but mainly I have to avoid the drugstore!

These products vary in their usage, some are brand new, some are nearly done. I didn’t necessarily have a “good” reason for picking any of them, it was mainly because I own too much stuff and need to focus on using it up rather than buying more. Seems like a reasonable way to start the new year, and I figured I’d have fun sharing my progress here since I really enjoy when other people do posts like this.

I am going to keep doing my normal empties posts and hopefully you’ll see these items in them. I actually have items I have to finish first before I start using these in a lot of cases, but these are ones I really want to finish. I was going to say a lot more and write about each product, but honestly that would just mean delaying posting this longer, and I wanted to get it up and committed. In the meantime, here are the products I want to use up, and let’s see how I can do.

Have you ever tried a Project Pan before? If you have questions about a particular product in the post, definitely let me know. I may update with more information later, but I want to get this up so I have something to refer to when looking for the next product to work on.
