I have too much stuff, and not enough places to put it.
Tonight I returned to cabinet in the powder room. This half bathroom truly is my powder room, since I use it to do my hair and makeup in the mornings while my husband is in the shower.
Aside from storing toilet paper and some cleaning supplies, I have a quite a collection of hair products, sunscreen, lotions and bath products in here.
I find it kind of amusing that the black box in the front was full of stuff I hadn’t yet organized the last time I cleaned out this cabinet. It’s referenced in the post I linked to above … from November 2007!
Anyway, that’s gone now. Also gone are a lot of half and mostly-empty sunscreen bottles that have expired, some empty boxes, and some products that I remember disliking.
I have the same problem as last time — a ton of nearly-empty hair products that I simply won’t toss until it’s all used up. I now have all of them consolidated in a large basket in the front. This time I really do have to finish off all the almost-empty ones, and figure out if I like the full ones. And then toss them if they don’t work!
Last time I didn’t have that large basket … and all of the extra hair products were in the back where I couldn’t access them as easily. Hopefully this works!
I still have some work to do with the small basket in the front. There are some lotions that can stay, but there’s also a rather large assortment of travel-size shower gel, shampoo and conditioner bottles that should probably be stored with the others I have in our master bathroom cabinet.
But that’s another project for another day!
