If I Finish This, I Will Purchase That...

In conjunction with my Project 10 Pan, I have decided to do a "If I finish this, I will purchase that".

I really want to start minimizing my collection and only have items in it that I actually enjoy using. I have too many products right now that I'm just "meh" about. On top of that, there are a few (non-makeup) items that I WANT but really don't NEED. I'm hoping this will help my budgeting and keep me on-track with my spending.

My next goal is going to be to actually count how many items I have in my collection and compare it to how many I'd like to have ideally.

To Finish:


1 Eye Primer
1 Face Primer
Hair Towel
2 Concealers
Shower Robe
5 Foundations
Curling Iron
2 Powders
Label Maker
1 Bronzer
1 Blush
Plastic Container
3 Eyeliners
Plastic Container
2 Perfumes
Plastic Container
2 Face Serums
Plastic Container
3 Shampoos
$25 Clothing
2 Body Washes
$25 Clothing
1 Lip Balm
1 Lip Gloss
$25 Clothing

Here is my rationale for the rewards: 

- I currently have a hair towel but the button broke off. It's still usable but I'd like a new one.
- I have an ancient shower robe that is shorter than I'd like. Ideally I'd like a long terry cloth robe. 
- Since moving out of my parents place, I no longer have access to a my sister's curling iron that I would use occasionally. 
- I will be moving in my new house in May of next year and would like to start packing away some seasonable items. That is what the label maker and plastic containers are for.
- I need to put a cap on my spending and have been finding some really cute, inexpensive pieces from Dynamite Clothing lately.

Are there any categories in your collection that you want to minimize?

    1. Thank you! I'm hoping it will help me stick to a budget and be committed to finishing products.

  3. I like this a lot, Natasha. Great idea. Thank for stopping by my blog.

    Have a great day.


  4. what a good idea. You should get those two concealers finished up asap as this is the perfect time to buy a new robe, I live in mine when the weather is cold! Have you ever watched Pink So Foxy's decluttering videos on Youtube? They're brilliant and think you'd enjoy them as you're doing something similar x

    1. I adore PinkSoFoxy's videos! I'm so upset that she's mostly done now. I always enjoyed watching those.

  5. Great idea!!!
    Have a good week!!:))) my g+ for you!!!:)))

    Besos, desde España, Marcela♥

    1. I always feel this inner voice telling me "but what if you need that eyeshadow colour?" when I want to downsize them. I'm insane. I'll definitely follow you!
