Project Sample PanThursday, July 11, 2013
Does this look familiar? Who else has a container (or containers) filled with samples? Either from various beauty boxes, gift with purchases, beauty insider perks... they can really pile up, can't they?
That's where Project Sample Pan comes in. A little variation from Project 10 Pan -- instead of using up 10 full-size products, I'm making it my mission to use up as many samples as I can. I've been casually doing this anyway, but I figured I should step it up. Some of the samples here have outlived the companies they came from, and some are from my very first beauty box (which was a Luxe Box, btw).
So, I keep my collection of samples in these clear shoe boxes. I like being able to see inside them, that way, I know what I have (and what I need to use up). There's no rhyme or reason to the organization -- just two completely full containers of a hodgepodge of products.
Every once in a while, I randomly grab a few products to store on my vanity for use. I keep the samples I'm planning to use up in a cute bowl that I picked up from Target. I adore the colour & the fun floral design.
How do you store your samples? And do you have a system to help you use them up? x
