I am a collector. I collected hotel soap when I was a kid. Whenever my dad would go on a business trip he would bring back the soap for my collection. I have continued the tradition by collecting soap, shampoo and conditioner, and lotion from hotels. But now they are just clutter. Some people give away the tiny bottles to homeless shelters. I think I should do that for any that I collect in the future. The old ones, though, are really old. I'm not even sure they are what they say they are. I might have used them and re-filled them with something else. I do use 2 bottles when I travel but I don't need 20 bottles!
So, in an effort to clean out my cabinet, I am going to make an effort to use up all of those little bottles and finally get rid of them. By putting all of the little shampoo and conditioner bottles in my shower, they are in easy reach and I remember to use them. So far I have found that half of the conditioner is horrible stuff. Doesn't work at all. I am finding that out with the little lotions and soaps too. They smell nice and then dry up and my skin is just as dry as before. Sometimes they don't even smell nice. At least none have given me a rash ...yet. Anyway, the point is that I was hanging on to these cute little useless bottles that were taking up space. It's time for them to go!
