See pictures above. After having dinner tonight decided to stop by one of our local haunts. The 2 boxes of cosmetics were at the bottom of a deep dumpster.

My husband jumped in. A few minutes later the security guard came by. I waved at him, he waved back and drove on. He’s seen me there plenty of times. I’m sure he knows what I’m doing. My husband stayed hunkered down until the coast was clear.

In the box were about 2 dozen cans of mousse and hair spray. Mascara, leave-in conditioner, nail polish, powder, eye cream, cold cream, skin care, the list is ENDLESS.

Most of the cosmetics were unopened and HIGH END cosmetics.

So now I have to find someone to give them to. I’m planning a road trip back to the south. Along the way I’ll give them out to women in rest areas, etc.

It’s a fine line I have to draw in how I present myself when giving this stuff away. People are still very leery when someone is giving something away. We’re very paranoid as a nation so we tend to look a gift horse in the mouth, when all I’m trying to do is to be kind.

I did a quick estimate and came up with a figure of about $ 1K in makeup, cosmetics and hair care we found tonight.

Well I’m glad they threw it away. Somebody can use it.

My target demographic is working poor or unemployed women. Sometimes a bottle of perfume, some good eye makeup and nail polish can lift a woman’s spirits.

Women like looking and smelling nice. And sometimes that takes money. If all the money you have can only feed your children and pay the light bill, looking and smelling pretty goes by the wayside.
