I have a problem y'all. I don't think I've ever denied the fact that I'm a product junkie. In fact, I think I've kinda embraced it, which might be why it's become such a problem. Haha! So, in the process of trying to organize my stash (which lives in 3 different places around my house), I realized how out of control it had gotten. I found more products after I took this picture, too. What to do? What to do?!
I've been on a product buying ban for 3-4 months, and I'm not sure that it helped. I've only managed to start running out of my favorites, which I have to repurchase. What I should have done was force myself to start going through some of the old favorites while not buying anything else. At this point, I'm not sure how much "don't buy any hair products... don't even go down that aisle... you don't need that" I have left in me, honestly. I have to be realistic with myself. I enjoy buying hair stuff period and I really like trying new things. So, I've come up with some new rules:
- I can repurchase staples when they run out.
- I have to evaulate at least 2 products at a time and
- decide if my hair loves or hates it
- use it up or give/throw it away
- Only when I've done that am I allowed I buy one product I've never tried before
What do you ladies think? Is anyone else trying to cut down on their product stash or struggling to get their product buying addiction under control? Help me out! :)
