Temptalia Asks You

When was the last time you sorted through your stash? Did you toss anything? Discover old favorites?

Temptalia's Answer.

It’s probably been a month or two, but I did find some high end glosses I forgot about!

    I just went through my stash about two weeks ago. I had acquired a bunch of lippies and wanted to integrate them into my fairly organized stash.

    I got rid of about 3 lipsticks that I just never really warmed up to. My biggest surprise was just how much stuff I have. I mean I knew, but when you count it up it sort of hits you (about 186 glosses, 179 lipsticks, for example). This should prevent me from future hauling. It probably won’t, though :).

    That’s a never-ending process! I just partially sorted through my nail polishes, trying to weed out similar colors, and I’ve done that with eyeshadows and lip colors too. I do a lot of swapping! I should really weed through again, because I just added a bunch of new nail polishes (augh! can’t resist!) and I have already overloaded my storage system.

    I decided to go through mine yesterday after coming home with my Rose Romance goodies. I didn’t really get rid of anything.. I just re-organized and discovered a few items I’ve been neglecting for quite some time.

    i havent really reorganised for A LONG time but getting a new storage case for my birthday in a weeks time so when i fill that up (hopefully not literally as its HUGE lol) i will have a good reorganise then….it needs it. My current box when i got it i thought would be an over kill…..but it was nearly full when i 1st put my makeup in it….a few months later its over flowing lol. I have a box that came free with my huge 1. It has my mac makeup in atm.

  5. about 2 days ago when I got a whole lot of new stuff from NYX and was about to put it all away when I realized nothing else fit in my case so now I have to buy a new one to fit all my new goodies! 😀

    When I moved in Dec but its time for spring cleaning.

    my collection isn’t actually big at all so sorting them out and allowing myself to buy more is not difficult 😛 but i can’t ever imagine myself throwing anything away…unless it’s gone bad. even if i have similar colors, i force myself to find something different between them, especially with nail polishes 😀

  8. Like a month ago when I was cleaning through everything. I found some really neat jumbo eyecrayons that I use as a second base. They’re fabulous. Best part? I think my mom got them from the dollar store randomly one day. AND THEY DON’T CREASE! <333

    Honestly I only go through when I need room. Otherwise I notice products I hardly use and get rid of them.

    Actually, just last weekend. I am in the final stages of my makeup re-organization/storage project & there were some items i forgot i had & love. so happy to ressurect them!

    I don’t really need to reorganise it as my stash is pretty organised into boxes and makeup bags, and I have written on every box what’s in them, plus I have a sort of catalogue of all my high-end make up that shows where each piece is. :) I know it sounds anal, but as my stash grew over the last couple of years (I bought a LOT of new stuff esp on Ebay and now getting more and more into Mac), I really needed to know where everything was and what I have.
    Also, I’ve got a system that every week I use make up from one brand (this week is Mac week), so every Sunday evening I dig out what I have from that brand. This way most of my stuff gets used.
    I have one box full of drugstore brands that I hardly ever use, I might give some of them to my sister. I gave her a nice little bag’s full in October when I sorted through my stash, incl lipsticks and glosses and eyeshadows that I don’t use anymore. (Getting more and more into high end products nowadays.)She was very happy with it, so might do it again sometime soon. :)

    About 2 weeks ago or so, I went through my stash and completely reorganized. I tossed out a garbage sized bag of items that went bad and B2Med the rest. I am very meticulous about organization so it wasn’t too difficult except I found so many products that I hardly use!

  15. A week or so ago, I don’t sort it though often, although I love doing it and I save it for special occasions, and it makes me happy! :)

    About a month ago… I just tossed out some old mascara samples (they irritate my eyes if more than half a year old!) I never really have to reorganize, though, my stash is always completely organized and everything has it’s own spot. OCD, much?

  17. Denny

    About two weeks ago. I don’t have too much (although I would like more of it). It’s organized in a 4 tier storage box. I have eyeshadows & mascara in the 1st, blush in the 2nd, lipsticks in the 3rd and glosses in the last drawer. I wish I had a 5th drawer b/c my eyeliners are in a jar on top but this system works for me. :-)

  18. Christy

    I try to reorganize at least once a week. Just to make sure everything is within reach and clean. I put them all in a storage unit that has 5 plastic drawers. I have a lot though, so I’ll rotate out what I’m currently using (I put these in a plastic tray on top of the storage unit) and swap for some other items.

  19. Bettina

    today actually, my roomie and I organized it all too..she hated how it was so she helped put it in a way she thought was better and I agreed..threw a few things away but not tons.
