I am still in the organize and simplify my life mode! I really hope this is the year that I get rid of the unnecessary clutter.
The other day I gave myself a 20 minute challenge to organize and clean out an area that I have neglected for far too long. It is much easier to justify organizing an area that we see daily, but what about that closet you never go into? Well I set my timer to 20 mins, and got to work!
This is a storage cabinet that is inside of Andrew and Abigail’s bathroom. It holds toiletries, cleaning supplies for upstairs, beach towels, table cloths, linens, décor items, humidifiers, etc. It was a MESS!
Evidence! I had a little helper…so this could have been done in 15 mins. LOL!
I pulled out tons of old lotions, sprays, and beauty items. They were so old that they didn’t even smell good anymore. WHY was I holding on to them? I also got ride of a pile of table cloths, place mats, and towels that were no longer my style.
I am making a point to use up the TONS of lotions, shampoos and soaps that I got at baby showers. I tend to buy things when we obviously do not need them.
I didn’t do anything to fancy. We hope to add a bathroom cabinets into their bathroom this year. This will be move and used in a new space. Right now it holds things we actually use! Genius!
I took this pile of stuff downstairs because it was just in the wrong place.
So, did I make it in time? YES! I went through every item and put everything back into place right at 20 mins! I never wanted to bother with this space because I thought it would take forever. I was wrong!
So I encourage you to find a space, give yourself a certain amount of time, and do it!
