When we moved in, being that I had more important things to do, like point out where the couch goes, I just crammed all our toiletry stuff under the sink and called it a day.
Yikes!! What is all that stuff? Do we even need it all? It gave me a headache every morning when I grabbed my make-up bag and then would knock over all the bottles around it. Plus, we never had room for toilet paper, so I would just toss the rolls in the cabinet and slam the door shut. I like to think I'm organized, but when I'm not happy with something, I tend to make the problem bigger.
So, I figured it was time to face the
Here are my two piles. I'm embarrassed to say that many of the lotion bottles were epmty. I don't know why I didn't toss them when I bought a new bottle. I feel like a hoarder! So all that stuff in the top picture got tossed. The pile of stuff in the bottom picture I kept. I was hoping the toss pile would be bigger, but no such luck!
It looks like we take a lot of baths at that Pal house, but we really don't. I think I've taken 3 in the two and half years that we've lived here. I think I'll make it a point to take more since we have a ton of bubble bath stuff.
Once I knew what I was keeping it was time to get the cabinet filled and organized. I decided to ditch the make-up bag and use a mini-three drawer container to house all my stuff.
That also gave me a designated shelf to place all the stuff I use every day within reach. Behind that I put all the bubble bath stuff (since now I'm so gonna be a bath girl! haha) in a clear bag. Now it's all contained in one package.
On the other side I put all our first-aid type stuff in a caddy and then lined up a box next to it for all of Mr. Pal's stuff he uses everyday. I tried to keep all the remaining items contained in order for nothing to be knocked over and make a mess.
I'm happy with how it turned out.
Now, I just hope it stays this way! :)
