Project Pan: Followup


Following the project pan post, I have been using the same products very regularly for over 2 months now.

During such process I have used up quite a few items and grown to love others which I have never thought I would love before. 

How it feels

Using up products give me such a feeling of relief and somehow the less items I have in my drawers, the calmer I feel. Having said so, I love buying and trying out new things, and I don’t think that will ever change, but I am more mindful now about the stuff I purchase and try to make sure that any thing I buy, I will get a lot of use out.


Having said so, I have stopped purchasing certain items, such as moisturisers, eye creams, body wash and lotions as I have a large number of such items and before purchasing another one of these products I need to finish off some of the items that are already in my cupboards. 

If I try out something which doesn’t agree with my skin type, I either give it to family or friends ( if it applies) or I throw it out. I am trying to convince myself that if I love an item, I need to use it up, as I had the tendency of not using items I like so they will last, and if I don’t like it, I will not use it, so there is no point in keeping it in my drawers. 


An empties post will follow soon documenting the second batch of items I have used up since starting project pan. The first batch are in Empties #3
