Default purging your makeup stash

how often do you purge your stash? i have a "use everything up" mentality but i think there are somethings i'll never use yet i've been hesitant to throw them out.

how often do you purge? do you force yourself to throw out things that you don't use? do you donate things? any thoughts and ideas welcomed!

I have a use everything up mentality too. But I draw the line when things start smelling funky. If it starts stinking, it goes into the trash!

If I just WANT SOMETHING TO GO I try to find other uses for it or make it into something else. For example, I made a lipstick I hate into a lip gloss and eyeshadows I never use into a highlighter (still trying to perfect the formula but I'll be sharing that soon)!

If it's something I never use but I know one my friends or family members might love, I sanitize (very important!) it and pass it on to them. I've gotten rid of a lot of eyeshadows and liners that way.

I'm really bad at remembering what I have and have been known to purchase 2 and 3 of the same items. In that instance, I will sanitize the newer item and give to my sister. I just recently sent her a huge box if makeup...a lot of it brand new because it was a dupe of something I already had or I'd purchased two of the same darn thing.

I don't purge. I just buy more storage stuff to keep it in.

I have a problem...I have more makeup than I could ever wear in 2 lifetimes, yet I can't part with any of it.

This is me as well, with many items. I will purge mascara's and pressed powders, but I have some eye shadow from 1991.... Somewhere.

If I haven't used it in a year, I toss it or I give it away. I have the same rule about my hair products/clothes - after six months/one year of non-use, buh-byeeeee!
