I set a goal for 2023 to spend 5 minutes every day decluttering/organizing.I’m sharing 5 minute projects on Instagram each week dayif you’d like to follow along. For those who don’t have Instagram or miss some of my stories, I thought I’d do a recap post here each week with a peek into the organizing/decluttering I did this past week .
Monday: Organize & Declutter Bathroom Drawers
My top drawers in the bathroom had all sorts of odds and ends in them — including a lot of things (meds, etc.) that I took in my pregnancy… and Micah is 7 month old! 🙂
It felt so good to clean these out, throw some things away, and put things away where they go — mostly in the hygiene and medicine closet upstairs where we keep extra hygiene and medicine products.
It’s always so nice when it feels like spaces in our home can “breathe”!
Tuesday: Clean Out the Cupboards/Area in the Laundry Room
Someone commented on my picture above of our laundry room cupboards that it made them laugh that nothing in these was laundry related. Years ago, when Jesse and I were first married and we lived in a tiny one-bedroom apartment, I learned that it’s okay to put things where they make sense (or fit!) not necessarily where you are “supposed” to put them.
I probably could come up with some better organizational systems for these shelves, but for now, it feels good to have them more cleaned out and easier to see what we have!
It looks like the sock basket could use a clean out soon!
Wednesday: Pull Out Your Washer & Dryer and Clean Behind Them
This wasn’t as bad as I expected. In fact, while the rag looked nasty after I’d scrubbed the floor area back there, I feel like it could have been much, much worse! I was also happy to discover a few clothing items that were lurking back there…
