This is the last Saturday of February and overall I’m pretty pleased with my efforts during Frugal February!
I wasn’t perfect, but I did break out of some bad habits that were developing.
There are still a few days of February left, and I expect to be fine on the no-shopping front until they go by. I have pulled out a few things to focus on using this next week.
I recently did some hair maintenance, and as usual I am left feeling like I should have done it much sooner. My hair looks a lot better and healthier, so I’m recommitting to treating it well.
These aren’t my favorite hair treatments, but before I buy more (I think my favorite one, which was by pantene, has been discontinued, so I was trying these instead) I want to focus on finishing them up. The Pantene is pretty close to empty, so that’ll probably last through the week if even that long.
The L’oreal obviously has a little way to go still. Having them out will help me remember to use them, though. Since they aren’t damaging my hair I may as well take advantage of what benefits they do offer before I spend more money on new items to try!
One of my favorite candle scents, Pumpkin Waffles! Yay. I don’t care if it’s almost Spring. This scent is just so creamy and yummy I burn it year round. I currently have 7 of this scent in 3-wicks, so it’s time to dip into my stash ; )
And the last items on my list are art supplies. I bought these completed Gesso boards for less than a blank one costs, so with a little sanding I think I should be able to get the art off (sorry to the original artist!) and repurpose them. I won’t be using these paints on them, but painting them is a consideration.
I also want to use these paints on some canvas panels. I’m making a gift.
And this watercolor paper. I love this stuff for print-and-cuts with my Epson 7620 and my Silhouette cameo. I did create some new products with samples made out of this the last two weeks. I need to complete a few more, though. I may buy a 24″ mat for my Silhouette so that I can utilize it fully.
That’s Shop Your Stash Saturday for this week : )
I’m liking this series. It’s helping me focus and reduce clutter as well as impulse spending. I even went to a thrift store today and walked away empty-handed! Yay : )
See you tomorrow for Silhouette Sunday!
