Random thought
Note to self: Next time you go away on holiday and put shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, moisturiser etc into small travel bottles, for heaven's sake PUT A LABEL ON THEM!!! Today's small decluttering job was to tidy the cupboard under the washbasin in the bathroom. There were all these little bottles of stuff, but as I had no idea what each kind of pleasant smelling goop was, I've just put the whole lot to soak and I'll wash out all the little bottles properly tomorrow.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

I'm so glad it's not just me that does this!

After many years of eating random food, eg spaghetti bolognese with rice, and chilli con carne with spaghetti, I finally learned to label the stuff that I put in the freezer. You'd think I'd transfer that lesson over to other situations, but no! I have to learn the hard way. :)

I purchased a permament marker to mark up my travel bottles! :o)

An excellent solution! However, I think I'll go with sticky labels. They last long enough for a holiday and then can be re-labelled if I put something different in the bottle next time.

Yes I am bad about this too. In fact (confession) the last time I shampooed my one dog Annie I realized afterwards it was with conditioner :-/
No wonder it didn't suds, hee hee!

My husband once complained that his shampoo wasn't working properly any more. It was only then that we realised that he'd been using conditioner. I'd bought it in a rush and grabbed what I thought was shampoo off the supermarket shelf but failed to notice the tiny print that said "Conditioner"! Otherwise the bottles were more or less identical.

Thank you for saying that, now I don't feel so bad! Yes the matching bottles, what were they thinking ;-)
