When I purchase a beauty product, I usually like to keep the cardboard packaging it comes in.... I know, it's weird. I like having the product packaging on hand sometimes so I can refer to it for ingredients and sizes. But usually I can't really justify this strange action. To control myself from being an extreme hoarder, I limit myself to putting all the packaging in a medium sized Victoria Secret shopping bag which fits perfectly in a shelf under my makeup collection. If you walk into my room, I can bet that you wouldn't even notice this neat little bag of empty boxes!
Every few months I will go through the bag and pick out any packaging that I probably will not need (not like I really need any of them in the first place). I flatten all of the boxes for recycling along with the rest of the paper products in my household. Lately I've been on a recycling kick and now I even recycle the small cardboard boxes my contacts come in. Every bit counts so please do your part and recycle anything you can!
Do you save packaging? If you do, can you justify this habit? Do you recycle your empty boxes and packaging? :)
