My Summer Empties

Hello everyone! Today I figured I’d share my summer empties with you!

I’m sure I’ve accidentally thrown out some empties over the course of the last few months because hoarding trash isn’t a natural instinct honestly. But here’s what I was able to save!

Beauty Empties

Well, I haven’t really used a ton of beauty products as I’m still mostly home! I do have a couple skin care items though. First up, is I finally used up my Tula Purifying Face Cleanser. I’m so sad about that as I love the cleanser! I have another cleanser I’ve started using but I do love that one and would probably repurchase in the future.

The other is a Charcoal Almond Fusion Sheet Mask. I don’t quite remember where I got it from, maybe in Mexico or a subscription box I used to get? Not sure! I’m not a huge fan of sheet masks actually but I do enjoy using them from time to time as a little self care treat!

Drink Empties

First up is the Tazo Classic Chai Latte and the Tazo Skinny Chai Latte. I do like them both! I’ve switched to oat milk and they both combine really well with it! I also have the Simply Balanced Classic Chai Tea Latte. I think Target is phasing out the Simply Balanced brand in favor of the Good & Gather brand but this was a good mix as well!

The other drink I have is the Bai Antioxidant Infusion drink. It tastes really good too! It’s super refreshing so it’s a great summer drink. Of course, it is quite sweet but still pretty good!

One that isn’t pictured that I did finish recently (so I do remember finishing it) is the Oregon Chai Latte. I’ve tried both the powder and the liquid mix and both are pretty good as well! I don’t like the powder nearly as much but it still tastes good!

Oh! And I used up a McCafe Premium Roast Ground Coffee bag. I will fill up the reusable Kcup for my Keurig and I’m pretty sure I’m the only one that uses this so it takes a long time to finish a bag for me! Even so, it’s really good and tastes great!


First up is the Crunch Master Multi-Grain Crisps. I love this one! They have other flavors but I’m not a huge fan of the other ones honestly. This is the more plain version which is perfect for me. I also enjoyed the Abound Veggie Chips, although I don’t think they’re as healthy as their packaging wants me to think.

I managed to save boxes of the Sunbelt Bakery Chocolate Chip and Oats & Honey Granola Bars. I love granola bars for snacks and even have tried to make my own before but it’s just never the same! I really liked these though because they are smaller so I don’t eat so much but super tasty.

Another granola bar is the Kind Peanut Butter bars. They’re really good as well! I do enjoy them as they’re more crunchy and sometimes I just want something crunchy!

I included a bag of the Good & Gather Blanched Almond Flour. I’ve been trying to bake with alternatives to flour and also low sugar recipes. Almond flour is pretty pricy and this is the best value one I’ve found so far. I really like almond flour bakes actually!

Personal Care

I didn’t know quite where to put the rest of these items so I’m putting them under personal care items. First up is the Herbal Essences White Grapefruit & Mosa-Mint Shampoo and Conditioner. I really loved the scent of these! I am using other products now as I already had stuff lying around, but I do miss how great these smell.

I finished up a bottle of the Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin, & Nails Gummies Vitamins. They were super yummy even if I don’t think they actually did anything. Honestly it tasted like candy!

Finally, I used up a travel sized version of the Synsodyne True White Tooth Paste. Since it was a travel size and I’m not doing much travel right now (thanks pandemic!) I figured I should just use it before it goes expires. It was fine but I don’t think there was anything really special about it. Of course, I only had a bit left before I used it up so it might not have been enough to really see results.

So that’s all my empties that I have for you today! Like I said, I threw out a ton without meaning to so it would have been more, but sometimes I just forget or the packaging isn’t easy to save without leaving a mess somewhere. Plus, some of it is just boring (like a regular bag of flour). So while they’re not everything, it is a pretty good representation of what I’ve used!

Thanks for reading!
