This top drawer of the dresser in our bathroom is full of my stuff.
I have lots of organizers and for the most part it's not so bad in there but every so often it needs a little tidy.
What I wanted to focus on for this project was getting rid of stuff I will never use. I have a hard time with waste. But the truth is, whether it sits in my drawer for 6 years unused or sits in the garbage dump, either way, it is wasted.
If you have toiletries that you know you really will not use, the goal today is to either donate them (if they are new), pass them on to a friend who might love that scented lotion that gives you hives, or, as a last resort, throw them out.
So, with timer set, I split my drawer into 3 sections and got sorting.
I was able to clear out a bunch of elastics and hair stuff that actually belonged to the kids. I also took out one of the hair sprays and left it on my dresser so I will use it up...I am terrible at starting a new bottle before the old one is gone.
The middle bins got a little tidy and items that did not really belong got moved.
I sorted through the make up and organized a bit. This clear plastic organizer is from Ikea and I love it! Beside the hairspray I also left out some furniture pads which Dino and I were supposed to put on the legs of the dresser weeks ago.
After 25 minutes I was done and while putting some nail polishes away in the second drawer, I noticed that it was breaking apart. So I ended up emptying it out, getting Dino to fix it, and then replacing everything - so it got a little tidy up as well.
Guess what did not feel wasteful to throw away? This ridiculous motion sickness bracelet did not work and as far as I am concerned, is complete MALARKY!
Not to mention it looks like some sort of Jane Fonda work out gear.
Have fun pretty organizing your toiletries space!
