THE ORGANIZING PROCESS

PREPARE:
Gather 4 laundry baskets, one for each of the following:
  • Keep
  • Trash/Recycle
  • Other Room
  • Donate (toiletries that you no longer want/use)
SORT:
  • Sort through everything in the drawers, closets, cabinets and countertops. Don’t forget to purge empty bottles in the shower.  Place everything in 1 of the 4 baskets listed above.  Recycle empty bottles, toss the trash, and donate any toiletries that you no longer use (to family or friends). Also remove anything that doesn’t belong in the bathroom.
CLEAN: 
  • Clean the windows & blinds
  • Wipe down doors, baseboards, doorknobs and switch plates
  • Wipe down counters & cabinet doors
  • Sweep/mop floors
  • Dust lighting
  • Wash rugs & shower curtain
  • Clean shower, bathtub & toilet
  • Clean out trash can
  • Clean out medicine cabinet
  • Wash mirrors

ORGANIZE: It’s time to go through everything in the “keep” box. Put the other items where they belong. When organizing things in the keep box, remove one item at a time, categorizing it. Below are some examples of what to organize together in the bathroom. You can use a different shelf, basket, cabinet or drawer for each category. Keep similar items together.

  • Make-up
  • Hair Care (Hairspray, gel, detangler, etc)
  • Body Care
  • Dental Care
  • Extra toiletries
  • Skin care (face wash, cream, etc)
  • Hair accessories (brushes, curling iron, hair dryer, hair ties, etc)
  • Feminine Products
