Well...peeps...here we are...day 3!
Thanks to those who have left comments...I truly appreciate them! I'm so glad to see that there are some people who are coming along on this journey, too...albeit, it's their own path they are taking! That sounds like a bit of an oxymoron, doesn't it! LOL We're taking the same journey but taking different paths...hmmmm...
Since I started out in the bathroom, I thought I'd continue in there with this area:
We don't have a linen closet in the bathroom, so I have a china cabinet, c. 1930, in there that we keep things in. The top section has three shelves behind glass doors and that is where we keep towels, washcloths, TP, mouthwash and a jar with cotton balls. The bottom has two shelves with solid wood doors. We keep other things like body wash, soap, etc. under there. Between the two section is the drawer shown in the above picture... this is where we keep small supplies.
When we were in Georgia this past spring we went to a yardsale and I picked up this item:
I didn't exactly know where I was going to use it, but a Lenox China wooden drawer organizer for 50 cents...I'm all over that one without question! LOL
This evening I spent about 10 min. on cleaning out the drawer. I took everything out and found a shallow box that would fit in the drawer along with this organizer to help keep things from rolling around when you open the drawer. (I learned this trick a LONG time ago! If you use boxes or organizers in drawers it makes finding things easier because it keeps them from getting all jumbled up in the drawer.)
This is what I culled from the drawer:
The tube of Retin-A expired in 1999!!! I think it was time to toss it, don't you? LOL There was another tube of that facial mask that I didn't like that I threw away on Tues., and about 8 or so contact lens cases. Just how many lens cases does one woman need anyway? (I kept two.) The headbands are Erin's so I will put them aside for the next time we see her. Everything else got tossed! Pitched! Outta here! :)
This is what the drawer looks like now:
It still looks pretty cluttered in the picture, but believe me, it actually looks really good IRL...with room to spare! :)
I'm please with the result and that it only took 10-15 min. (It took longer to write this blog entry than it did to actually do the work! LOL)
Please leave a comment and let me know what you "released" into the wild today!
