Maybe I’m weird (who am I kidding? There’s definitely no ‘maybe’ about that), but I get excited when a pot I’ve been using runs empty. I love the feeling of finishing something and chucking it into the recycling.
Probably because I am very sad and have no life.
Since I’ve implemented my ban, I’ve finished several mini shower gels, Ruth Romano bath salts, Soap & Glory Calm One Calm All bubble bath, Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter, REN Hot Cloth Cleanser and a few other things I’ve lost track of. I know that if I hadn’t banned myself from buying more then these products would still be sitting half empty (half full?) in my cupboard.
I am also trying to implement this ban into my awful tea buying habit. I have over 30 (no kidding) different types of tea. I have a serious problem and I admit that I failed and purchased some beautiful Twinings Salted Caramel Green Tea. However I redeemed myself on a recent 48 hour trip to Spain by picking up a box of delicious tea and putting it back down. Wow, achievement!
Are you a weirdo too who gets great pleasure from finishing things? Haha!
