Project #1 - Bathroom!

Problem areas: Drawers and Cabinets
The drawers have become a free for all for anything and everything. It's embarrassing to even take these pictures!
But here goes....

Before Pictures.....



1st Step.....Purge, Purge, Purge!!!
I came out of the bathroom with a garabe bag FULL! Soaps and lotions that hadn't been touched in years all got tossed.

2nd Step....What doesn't belong in the bathroom?
I found several items that didn't even belong in the bathroom. Those items were all taken to where they should be. Under the sink it was crammed full of cosmetic bags, many that aren't ever used. I kept one small one for each of us to stay in the bathroom, the large bulkier ones went in the luggage closet, and the rest went in the rummage pile.

3rd Step....Evaluate what can be used to keep the space tidier and more organized.
I headed to Target and picked up inexpensive trays and baskets that would fit in the drawers and under the sink.


4th Step....Organize and put back together utilizing the basket and trays.

After Pictures......

Wow...impressive.

I read about your grocery store moment on The Glamorous Life of a Housewife and had to tell you it made me feel better about myself.

I borrowed my roommate's car last spring to go to the grocery store and got her keys stuck in the trunk lock--which apparently she told me would happen if I tried to use it. I was stuck for ages and people thought I was loony! So silly mistakes at the grocery store aren't so bad, or lonely! :)

Have a good day!

Oh, man - I really needed to be inspired to organize my bathroom. If I clean through my cabinets and drawers, I'll find that I can throw away 90% of what is in there. My problem is keeping the stuff from coming back!

Woooo Hooo!!! Nicely done, Tara! That's excellent! At first, I was wondering how the heck you managed to get into my bathroom to take all those nasty pics, but then when I was the after shots, I knew it couldn't possibly have been my bathroom ;)

Great work! I bet you feel FABULOUS now!!! Be sure to post update pics in 3 months — "How It Looks 3 Months Later" ;)
