Do you stockpile?

One thing I noticed when sorting through the bathroom and en suite is that I  am guilty of stockpiling products.

Now this isn't necessarily bad thing, but I do need to take stock of what I have and stop buying until I need things unless they are super inexpensive.

This image has nothing to do with this post, but I just found it on my phone! 

When it comes to my favorite cleaners (Liz Earle) I get it for my birthday and Christmas (both in December), so it is good that I have enough to last me half the year.

However, there is no way that MadDad is going to get though all the shampoo I have stockpiled!

So I have wrote a list of what I have in and am not going to replace unless they are all gone or it is a unbeatable offer.

The other thing I realised I am guilty of is keeping for best.  I have toiletries that I have been keeping for best.  I actually deserve a relaxing bath with nice products ever week, so I am going to use them now!


  1. I am just as guilty as you. I have about 15 different bubble baths and shower gels that sit in the back of the cupboard and a couple of more luxurious products that I tell myself need a special occasion. Wonder how many of them will come along? ;)

  2. I escape to a long soak in the bath most evenings - it's the only thing that gets me through the day sometimes! Ha! I never save for best I use and enjoy it all every single day so good for you I say! As for stockpiling though, I'm terrible for buying too much toothpaste. I just can't help myself when it's on offer as there are so many of us that we go through so much but I end up with tubes and tubes of the stuff ;-)

  3. GUILTY!

    I did a clear out the other day and you wouldn't believe how many bottles of shampoo/body lotion/shower gel/perfume we have in. It is beyond reason. I have put them on a shelf in the wardrobe so I can't go in there without going "OH MY GOD! Why do I have all this stuff?!" that way (well this is the plan) I won't buy anymore. I just can't resist a good offer. It is a serious condition.

  4. I agree. I found packs of wrapped l'occitane soap that my mum bought for me LAST Christmas. I've now removed the dispenser soaps from my bathrooms (I'll save this for the kitchen) and I've put one in each bathroom. It smells lovely now and adds a touch of luxury x

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
