Have you already completed your first Spring Cleaning task for the season? If so, you are well on your way to a more organized home and life!
Today we’re going to focus on organizing the bathroom. We may not spend the majority of our time in that area of the home, but the time we do spend is very important.
If your home is anything like mine, I need to be able to find things easily so I can get ready at lighting speed. There’s only so much time a mom can spend getting beautified before the kiddos need help. So, it’s imperative to have everything in the bathroom accessible and organized.
Four Steps to a More Organized Bathroom
1. Take everything out of your cabinets and wipe them down (for hard to pick up items use a vacuum attachment).
2. As you place your belongings back in the cabinet, keep the following in mind:
- Keep like items together for easy accessibility.
- Combine things when possible. For example, if you have multiple bottles of lotion that are only partially full, combine them into the largest bottle.
- Utilize a plastic container or caddy to hold things you use most often (hair dryer, flat or curling irons, hair spray, brushes, etc.). This will keep your cabinet space organized longer since you can pull the entire basket out when needed and place it back under the cabinet when finished.
3. Clean out your make-up bag. Use the following as a guideline for purging make-up:
- Foundation – toss if older than 6 months.
- Concealer – toss if older than 6 months.
- Powder – toss if older than one year.
- Blush – toss if older than one year.
- Eye Showdowns – toss if older than one year.
- Mascara – toss of older than 3 months.
If you have additional tools, do you use them? Are they necessary or just taking up space in your make-up bag?
4. Take a look at your bathtub or shower area.
- Is there anything that would make the area more useful?
- Do you have multiple scrunchies that need a hook?
- Would you benefit from a shower caddy?
- If you have kids with bath toys, could they be corralled by a toy scoop or toy net?
If so, order it asap!
As you can probably tell, organizing your bathroom can really be quite easy. The hard part is just getting started! Hopefully, you can follow this step-by-step process, get on a roll, and have a organized bathroom in less than 30 minutes!
