    Got this idea from another site..that got the idea from another site... :)

    We all have a lot of products and it's probably more common for many of us to get new products into our den than it is to actually finish off a product.

    This thread is to say goodbye to a finished product - and maybe let us know if you see yourself ordering more of it.

    Simple rules;
    - The product has to be finished,
    - No samples,
    - Pics are nice but not required

    I'll start.

    This morning I squeezed the last few drops out of my Stirling Coniferous aftershave splash.

    It's a product that at first I didn't care for at all..but it really grew on me to the point that I will actually re-order it.

    Bye-bye...go gently into the shadows old friend.

    It's a nice bottle. Maybe I can re-purpose it for something. Travel-amount of Tabac maybe :)

    You mean, we're supposed to finish things? :signs002: Clearly, you just don't have a big enough rotation. :taunt002:

    I have the intention of finishing up products this year before I order more of the same type.
    I can now order one more A/S :)

    (I may have to accidentally drop a puck of Williams into the toilet so I can order some P.160 when that comes out). :D

    Anyway, here's hoping to that I stick to my guns on that. My wallet will thank me :)

    If I followed that logic, I'd drop three or four pucks of Williams in the toilet accidently:p

    I have the same issue with Vitos Super Duper Extra (1k) and Body Shop Macca (2 tubs + a tube in reserve). I'm trying to convince myself to not have the same "problem" with Barbus.

    edit: forgot that I also already have the "problem" with Erasmic stick (the old/good one) and puck.

    It's Williams. Why wait for "accidentally."

    Yeah, @Darkbulb , just pretend that "1k of soap" means GEM-type razor. :D

    Do DE razor blades count? :p
    I am so overstocked in shaving stuff, I fear I may never run out.

    I actually just came to the end of a bottle of my own Bay Rum— the 'Black River Bay Rum' I made in the Fall of last year.
    Would I get more? You bet. It's a good thing I made enough to have another bottle waiting in the wings, properly 'aged.'

    Nivea Cool Kick.. It's not as "cool" as I would like, I'll most definitely be picking up another one. To go with my 6 Gillette balms that I have. My spending habits have caused me to empty out a dresser drawer. I see no slowing down in the future..
    You just never know when something will be discontinued. :D

    Williams goes in the urinal, not the toilet

    In the last month I've used my very last DE blade. Gillette 7 o clock green. It was a freebie that was thrown in when I bough a razor. I won't be buying again. It was an ok blade but I just don't use DEs anymore.

    Also during that time I've run out of Arko and have replaced it with a 12-pack box from Amazon for $13.05 shipped (open box). I obviously will continue to replace it. There is not one soap that works better for me. There are other soaps out there that perform just as well but they are much more expensive and their scent irritates my skin.

    True, I don't have a urinal in my home but I could donate some Williams for use at the office.

    Brilliant! The citronella scent will be just fine there.

    The hubby & I each just finished a bottle of pre-shave oil. I will mix up some more today.
