Alright, y’all, I feel behind.
And when I feel behind, I obviously start talking with a southern accent. Deal with it.
I feel like there is just so much to do around my house. I was gone for a few days, and now I’m trying to play catch-up with everything…and my husband even cleaned a lot of the house while I was gone!
I’ve got issues, y’all! (Oh, sheesh, I did it again!)
Decluttering the bathroom is the perfect job on a day like today. When I want to do something, but don’t feel like working too hard, I’ll often clean out the bathroom vanity cabinet. Organizing the bathroom is almost relaxing to me.
Yes, I’m odd.
Today, let’s tackle some specific areas in the bathroom, keeping in mind these clutter-free bathroom tips I shared a few weeks ago.
Does anyone still keep medicine in the medicine cabinet? We keep things like toothbrushes, deodorant, and band-aids in ours. Regardless of what you store in there, sort it out and make everything easy to reach.
Much like cleaning out our beauty supplies yesterday, we should help make our (and our husband’s) morning time easier by only having things we really need and use in our cabinet. Make the essentials easy to reach and easy to put away.
I don’t actually have any extra storage in my bathroom, but if you do, then now is the time to tackle any clutter that’s hiding behind the door. I’ll try not to be jealous of you for having those lovely extra shelves.
The bathroom counter should not be a dumping spot. Only have the things you really want and need on the countertop. Most things should be put away in a drawer, a cabinet, or a basket.
Tub or Shower
Ready for a reality check? I currently have FOURTEEN bottles of things like body wash, face wash, shampoo, and conditioner in my shower. I’m not joking. Get rid of shower clutter before it breeds and makes little baby shower clutters!
Floor, Baskets, Back of Toilet
I’m not going to judge you for whatever you choose to keep in your bathroom, but take a serious look around and get rid of anything that doesn’t belong. Don’t let old magazines, almost-empty bottles, and totally gross hair products have a place. If you don’t feel good when you see it in there, then kick it out.

Also, as you’re working in the bathroom, remember that we’re doing this as an expression of love for our family. It’s easy to resent those who make the messes when we’re cleaning the yucky stuff. Don’t go there.
