- Reading materials
- Over-the-counter medicine: Go though and check for expired medicines
- Make-up: Toss away anything older than 6 months
- Bath toys
- Cleaning agents or supplies
- Appliances: Toss old, non-functional dryer/curler, electric razor, and electric toothbrush
- Bottles of shampoo/conditioner
- Towels: Do you really need all those? 2 per person per bathroom, plus 2 hand towels and 2 wash clothes (and give each person their own colour)
- Prioritize first. Start by pulling out the things you actually use on a regular basis. Make sure they are in the most easily accessible areas. It will definitely make it easier to get ready in the morning.
- Keep any extra stocked items together. If you like to keep extra toothbrushes, bars of soap, or bottles of shampoo on hand, keep them in the same area.
- Consolidate duplicate items. Try to avoid the crowding of extra items by combining them. It won’t hurt to combine two half empty bottles of conditioner together.
- Place small items in a contained area. It’s easy to lose small items like nail clippers, tweezers, and hair clips. Use a small drawer/plastic bin near the front of a drawer to keep small things from sliding out of sight.
- You don’t need all those tiny bottles. Buy the travel size containers that you can refill with your regular shampoo.
- Kids need their own spaces, too. Make things convenient for them as well. Make sure they can access the extra toilet paper and give them a designated spot for their toothbrushes and hairbrush.
