Even though I haven’t mentioned it in awhile, I’m still working on my 12 by 2012 list. Remember that?
But instead of cleaning out my closet, I decided to clean out my bathroom cabinet.
My husband and I live in a rental. And I try a hard as I can to treat it as a “temporary living space”. I want to buy shelving and organizational products to help maximize space, but I stop myself because I know everything will change when we move to a home that we own one day. So, in the meantime, I look for cheap options to de-clutter and make use of the space we have.
My go-to place for organization is Michaels. They are always putting their box aisle on sale for about 40% off. And if it isn’t on sale this week, you can always find a 40% off coupon to use instead. I love them for that. So generous.
Anyway, I picked up a few boxes for 40% off in an effort to organize this disaster:
Yep. Every morning was a fight to try to find the curling iron I needed. . .the makeup I wanted to use. . .the hairspray. . .I could go on and on. . .
So I purged about 2 garbage bags full of j-u-n-k. It felt so good.
Then I took out the items I never use, but still wanted to hang on to. Why do we do this?
I was left with my dailies + some extras. And those were easy to place in my new baskets!
That is my stash of aquage uplifting foam and kenra hairspray back there incase of a hair emergency.
One more check off the 12 by 2012 list!
