Getting Organized Together – October

Goals for getting organized in October – Organizing Your Bathroom

Common problems seen in a bathroom: countertops cluttered with make-up, jewelry, cleansers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, medications, you name it. Possibly towels on the floor. Drawers and cabinets overflowing with “stuff” and in no sort of discernible order.

The bathroom is a busy place and a lot goes on in there, and most of us have to share! A small space used by several people that holds a lot of small items makes it easy to get out of control and become disorganized.

The one biggest thing you can do to get your bathroom back in order is to declutter it of anything that doesn’t belong. The second biggest thing is to make sure that everything you are keeping in the bathroom has a home, a place to be put when it’s not being used.

For some ideas on how to organize your bathroom, click here. You can tackle one bathroom at a time to complete this mission, or you can decide to declutter all your bathrooms, and then come back and organize your belongings in each bathroom. Do what works best for you.

I hope that these tips help get you inspired to get into your bathroom and get it organized. I know that I have a little work to do.

One important rule to follow…

Most bathrooms are pretty small so you could probably tackle this job pretty easily. It just depends on your inspiration and just how much clutter has collected in your bathroom! Either way, it’s always perfectly fine to do these missions in 15 minute sessions. Do what works best for you so that you don’t become overwhelmed and quit partway through the task. Remember, it’s about progress, not perfection.

Put your things away!

Keeping the bathroom orderly really relies on following this rule. Make sure there is a place for everything in your bathroom. And then make sure that you put everything back when you’re done. Use your makeup and then put it away, back in the designated area. If there is a home for every item, there is no excuse for things to pile up on the countertops and floors.
