To eliminate bathroom clutter first throw away all but the most recent magazines on the floor or magazine rack. After, simply remove all of the products from the vanity shelves, the sink, and the cover of the toilet tank. Go through your drawers and empty them out as well. Place all of the bathroom items in the bathtub or shower and then go through the pile and pick the ones out you use on a daily basis. Once you have placed these items back in their spot, preferably the most convenient place for you in your bathroom, then go back to the shower and pick the ones you haven’t used in over a year. (Items such as unexpired medicines and first aid items are excluded. You should have a separate first aid kit or place somewhere else in the home.) Take the bathroom items you haven’t used in over a year and throw them out. Ladies, the products you think you will use again you won’t. You stopped using them for a reason. The remaining bathroom items are things you use, and want to use, so find a home for them in the vanity or drawers. Akro bins are a great way to keep like items together that you can grab out all at once and put back simply. Keep the area next to your sink clear of all products as less is always more and less is less distracting.

Bathroom Brawl Tip: In a perfect world you should be able to grab anything from your bathroom or any area of your home in the dark. Best tip for anything stored in your bathroom is when in doubt toss it out!

    I have a ‘morning basket’, an ‘evening basket’ , a ‘hair wash basket’ and a cleaning basket. After use, they go right back onto the shelf in the cupboard … I only allow myself, well almost, to buy something new when the old item is just about used up or empty… Works really well for me
