What do you with all those Lauder GWP cosmetic + tote bags? The extra creams and makeup?
Just wondering what you guys do. I'm accumulating a lot of bags. This is a collection unto itself. I gave some to family members. I kept some. The rest I'll donate.
I use lipsticks, eye shadow, and nail polish. Gave away duplicates.
I keep getting the re-nutriv cremes. That's the last thing I need (doesn't match my skin). Someone else has them now.SandraMemberMarch 16, 2004 at 2:09 amPost count: 2188
I think Woody had a good plan with these on a posting a while back . . . . donated to a charity cause, if my memory serves me correctly.
Perhaps he'll remind us again on this page.MicheleMemberMarch 16, 2004 at 4:37 amPost count: 874
Hi Greyhound –
Sandra's right…Woody's idea is the best. I do sell some on eBay, but have been giving the most to our local “Women in Crisis” shelter here at home. The ladies (usually young girls and their children) are just thrilled with them, and it lifts their spirits. Actually, just being nice to them lifts their spirits, as they're so mentally and physically beaten down, it breaks your heart. Plus, they usually end up at the shelter with literally nothing but the clothes on their backs and whatever they can stuff into a paper bag – fast – and run. Makeup is the least of their worries at the point of departure. However, once settled in and calmed down, they do try to pull themselves together and re-think their lives. Some go back…some venture out on their own. But at least one can try to put a little light back into their lives.
The location of each shelter is usually unknown to the general public for obvious reasons, but am sure you could find a liason to help you get the items to them.
It's worth it, and the return is beyond words! <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

I had enough “goodies” to fill 18 gift bags for board members of Assistance League. The ladies loved them and I had new found space for more stuff <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> .
Lately everyone wants to give the cute little hand bags or totes. I just keep stacking them up in the closet <img src='style_emoticons//unsure.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’unsure.gif’ /> The cutest one is the baby blue patent from SAKS Las Vegas.
Bye, KK <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />
