At the beginning of the year, I thought about doing another Project Pan, but after looking at my beauty items I thought the one thing that seems to add to the overflow is my collection of sample packets. Now, I loved collecting samples whenever I went shopping at any beauty related store because I always thought it was a great way to try out products or to carry something easy to dispose of while on vacation. After years of collecting, I just find that a LOT of this stuff isn’t being used up so I figured why not just pull them all out and focus on using them up over the next few months and just clear them from my collection.

Now, I’m currently working from home for the next few weeks due to the rising fear of COVID-19 so I figured I would put extra focus on these items. It’ll be a good way for me to focus on something fun during this time and maybe I can provide some updates along the way of what I use up.

On a serious note, my work decided to promote social distancing and asked those who can work from home do so. I just wanted to take this opportunity to ask you to stay safe and pay attention to your local government’s update. There is a lot of information out there on COVID-19 and I encourage you to read creditable sources on what to do in your area so that we can protect the most vulnerable in our communities.

On to my Samples! I’m going to divide these into a few categories so that it’s easier to follow. I’ll include how many I have of each so that as I use them up I can update the counter.
