In my sprucing adventures last week with my mom, she found she had all kinds of extra little clear containers which I decided to repurpose for this week's project: that bathroom drawer.
I think this is my third iteration on this drawer but now I feel like it's just how it's supposed to be, know what I'm talking about?
My mom gave me a larger clear container that I turned sideways so I could shift things around. Also, since I recently cut my hair short again, I could move the hair ties and bobby pins toward the back (always good to have a few of these around).
If you need a quick tidiness/happiness boost, here's how to conquer the toiletries drawer:
- Empty the entire drawer and wipe it down
- Have your cat join you for moral support (Archie just stared at me the whole time)
- Replace like items back into containers (hair, skincare, makeup, dental care, etc)
- Toss anything that's expired and donate unused shampoo, toothpaste, lotions, etc (or partially used, depending on the charity - the Ballard Food Bank accepts half used toiletries)
And voila! A quick tidy up can save you a little bit of time when you're getting ready to head out or when you're sleepily washing your face before you crash for the night.
