Goo Hoarding

I forgot to include this when I did my first "resolutions" post in January, but it's {mostly) the start of a new month, so this seems like a good time to write about it. I didn't coin the term, but it describes exactly what I've been doing. Goo hoarding is when you collect, well, goo. Shampoos, lotions, body wash, lip gloss, all that good stuff tends to pile up. When we moved last summer, I noticed just how much I had, and since then, it's only continued to grow. 

I've been working on this for a few weeks now. I'm trying to worth through my stash and use what I have beforeI buy more. There are a whole lot of samples, and I'm not entirely sure where they came from. But I've started to use them. I put a few little lotions by my bed and hotel shampoos and conditioners are in the shower. The lip gloss situation is resolving itself, because I haven't bough myself any in months. When I put them out where I can see them, they get used a lot more than when they're tucked away in a drawer somewhere. As an added bonus, I feel like I'm pampering myself all the time {most of my sample stuff is for products I don't buy because they're out of my price range}. 

The hope is that once I work through it all, I come away with a few favourites. Then, in the future, I won't have to buy so many things, because I'll know what I like. 

Are there any other goo hoarders out there? Or am I alone in this crazy?
