I have this thing about finishing something completely before opening up a new package. For example, I try to finish up (till the very last drop of) my shower gel. Then, I'll open up the cap and add some water in the bottle to dissolve the remaining 'usable' portion. And one last shower with the diluted and soapy shower gel before I finally toss the whole thing into the wastepaper basket conveniently located in my bathroom. Aaahh.. Another well-used toiletries item. Good till the last drop! *literally* Then, and only then will I open up the stocked replacement of the said toiletries item.
It just so happens that I was looking out for lotions to smother on my bulging belly to avoid the unsightly stretchmarks and to my surprise, I gathered the following:
AAAARRRGGGHHHH! 8 containers of lotions of varied brands, textures and degree of 'finish'ness. All opened, none finished. Double AAAARRRGGGHHHH! It contradicts all that I have been so anal about!
We have (from far left, going clockwise) : Boots' ante-natal massage cream, Marks & Spencer's Waterlily Hand and Body Lotion, The Body Shop's Soya Dry Oil Mist, The Body Shop's Almond & Honey Body Lotion, The Body Shop's Honey Body Butter, The Body Shop's White Musk Moisturizing Satin Spray, The Body Shop's Cocoa Butter Mosturizing Stick and lastly, The Body Shop's Vitamin C Stimulating Body Smoother. The thing is, some of these have been in my keeping since 3 years back --> cue the ante-natal massage cream. :( I wonder if they are still good to be used. As long as it smells OK and I don't get rashes over it, I'll just use it, lah. And this time, I'd better finish it!
Excuse me while I strategize on which one to finish up first and that sweet smelling Strawberry Body Butter from The Body Shop would have to wait until ALL these are gone! Sheesh!
*updated* Just discovered three more bottles of lotion located in my office, hubby's office and in my bathroom!
