4. Explain what system you will use to update your list (i.e., different colors/symbols to denote used/purchased items or items added from your current stash): Products in red will denote ones that have been used, given away or repurposed, products in #green will denote purchased products (the # will identify purchased products if the color changes), products in *blue will denote products that I found in my current stash (the * will identify the products found if the color changes), and products in purple will denote products that I am targeting to use up for the current quarter. I will also include the dates used, given away, repurposed, purchased or added in parentheses.

5. By the end of the challenge, what is the total number of products you hope to have in your stash? 90 was my goal, but I did not make it.
