It’s 11:58 on a Saturday night. Guess what I just spent the last two hours doing? Organizing our master bathroom! And I had way too much fun doing it.
(I promise, I really am 22.)
Anyway, here’s the photo tour…
We have lots of space, which is wonderful but just invites clutter. And after finishing this book last week, I was feeling inspired to simplify.
First, I emptied the vanity and sorted all the goodies.
That’s a lot for two people (okay, really one… I see nothing that’s his).
If I truly used this many facial cleansers, it would take me an hour to get my face ready for bed every night!
This is kind of pathetic. Hair products I never use…
Vs. hair products I use every day.
Next up: makeup I rarely ever use…
Vs. makeup I use nearly every day.
I have a tendency to use 1/2 a bottle and get sick of the scent. So I throw it in the vanity for later. Only later never happens, because I’m not all that excited about the product to begin with. So, I finally tossed these half-used items:
Since these hair products are expensive and useful when I’m in a bind (i.e. when I run out of gel… and sans gel, my hair’s a frizzball), I kept them. They’re hidden in a basket, up and away from regular traffic areas.
These baskets have sat empty for almost a year. Perhaps it’s time I fill them? Extra loofahs.
Next, I wiped out and sanitized my empty vanity drawers, and started the process of refilling them.
Top drawer: only items I use every single day.
Second drawer: things I tend to use weekly (new razor, face mask, nail clipper, etc.).
Third drawer: “fun” makeup that isn’t worn daily.
Bottom drawer: extras of the items I use every day.
The under-sink area was crowded before. Now it simply houses items too big for the drawers.
My fave: bright white washcloths. (I see no point in having any other color. So clean!)
Added bonus: I found my old nail polishes. I probably paint my fingernails, oh, maybe five times a year – MAX. But I decided to tonight.
The color = Bling Bling!
I’m excited to see if my new, logically organized drawers improve my morning routine.
Oh, how I love an organized home!
