Today’s organizing and decluttering challenge was to spend 30 minutes on your basement, garage, or any other room in your home that we haven’t covered. This could be a porch, an extra family room, bedrooms, etc.
I chose to spend my 30 minutes in our 2nd bathroom and honestly, all I got done was cleaning. There wasn’t any decluttering going on!
The 2nd bathroom is upstairs where all of our bedrooms are. It is also the only bathroom where any of us shower or take a bath so it is always in use! Unfortunately, it’s also very small and gets cluttered and messy quickly. The kids leave their dirty clothes in there instead of putting it in the hamper and bath toys seem to miss the basket when it’s time to pick them up.
I set my phone timer for 30 minutes because we spent the entire day on the run and I didn’t start this project until 9:00 P.M. I decided that I would get done what I could and be done with that!
I started with getting the dirty laundry out of the bathroom, cleaning the toilet and the shower/bathtub. That took 16 minutes by the time I scrubbed both and threw the shower curtain in the washing machine.
With 14 minutes left, I decided to wipe down the mirror and sink and clean and organize under the sink. I had 6 minutes left and decided that I would clean out the one cabinet we have in that bathroom.
I didn’t get to our built in shelving unit which is where I wanted to declutter and organize, but I did end up with a fairly clean bathroom. Progress is progress, right?
How did you do on your organizing and decluttering project today?
(Have you missed the previous challenges? Don’t worry you can jump in right where we are in the series and go back later if you want to catch up or just finish out what we’re working on with us! I’m so happy that you are joining us in organizing and decluttering your home!)
