Throw It Out Thursday - The Bathroom

It's time to de-clutter and organize the bathroom. Items accumulate here easily, at least for me. I am always trying new shampoos or moisturizers. I can't commit to one immediately, so I keep the old AND the new until I make a decision. And because I'm a procrastinator who is afraid to make the wrong choice or change my mind at a later time, it's easier to keep ALL of it "just in case." :)
Well, this is the week to lose my "just in case" mentality and pitch the items we no longer need. Here's my list:

  • Old nail polish & makeup
  • An almost empty bottle of hand soap
  • Old cleaning products (including expired peroxide)
  • Some travel toiletries
  • Expired medicines
I would have a longer list (like those half-used shampoos & moisturizers), but I did a similar purge when I reorganized the linen closet a few months ago.

Happy purging! I look forward to hearing your comments about how it's going.

Thanks for the reminder ... writing now, but will head to my bathroom this afternoon to happily throw away what I don't use!

Thanks for the reminder....I need to do this.


You're welcome!

Janet, Good for you for getting your writing done! Hope you found some things to toss from your bathroom :)

Linda, I've been amazed at what I'm finding to throw away because I'm tackling one room each week. Good luck to you!

I am such a product junkie myself! I started by removing the things I hate and it seems to be working so far. I'm gonna try to dig deeper this week.
