Bathroom Purge and Organization
I cannot even believe I’m going to show this Bathroom Purge and Organization. Who knew you could have so much stuff in a tiny little area.
First Things First
When getting ready to minimalize and de-clutter any space. You need to see all the things. In order to see all the things, you need to empty everything from every corner, nook, and cranny.
To be grossed out, embarrassed, shocked, and a slew of other emotions. I mean, how many feminine hygiene products does 1 girl need when she doesn’t even have a uterus? To the normal person, you wouldn’t have any. For me, they were on sale and I had a coupon. I guess I thought I was spontaneously going to regrow my uterus much like a starfish regrows a leg.
If you can, consolidate things. I had about 5 bottles that were 1/2 full of lotions. Once combined, I now have 3 full bottles. I had about 4 bottles that were 1/2 full and 12 little travel sized things of baby shampoo. Once done, I ended up with 2 bottles. If you can consolidate to use it up, do it.
If it is unused, donate it to a women’s shelter or a food pantry (they take things other than food). I had 12 bottles of Neutrogena face wash. Coupons, ya know. It breaks my face out. I tried to let my girls use it. It breaks their face out. So, why keep it?
Hoarder maybe? Donate if you can.
If it is outdated THROW IT AWAY. By throwing it away, I mean gathering it all up (if it is prescription) and taking it to your local law enforcement office. They have proper ways of disposing, safely, of prescription medication. Be wise. I would, often, flush it. Then I read that that was not safe. Now, I take it to the people who can handle it effectively.
Use your husband’s beard/mustache trimmer on your dog’s butt. Or, if you do, take it OUT of your bathroom. There is a 100% chance you will forget you shaved your dog’s butt and he will reuse it on his face.
He will not be happy. Not. At. All.
In the End
Once everything is emptied, purged, donated, etc. you have the perfect opportunity. Use up your leftover cleaner and clean the crap out of everything. I still need to take a straight edge to the soap scum in the shower, but all in all, it is a thousand percent cleaner than before. It is a nice feeling to organize, throw away, donate, clean, and traumatize your spouse. Here are the end results of a 2-day process. Oh, I found a charcoal face mask, so just ignore what you see in the mirror.
