Declutter Your Bathroom And One Extra Room

Spread the love


September is a great month to declutter your bathroom and one extra room.  Labor Day kicks off the upcoming holiday seasons. It is my job to help you look ahead and do maintenance in specific areas before the new year arrives.

Why September?

Why not? Here is my thinking. September is the new start to the school year. Why not declutter your bathroom of empty bottles and products that have expired. Go through your towels and retire the ones that always get stuck in the back of the cabinet. They are old and not effective anymore. They are just taking up space.

Start fresh!

Once you have decluttered them it is a great opportunity to give your bathroom a really good scrub down. It is also a great time to check plumbing and the seal around your bathtub. Mold loves to live in bathrooms. Don’t give it an opportunity.

Maybe you are thinking of updating this room. Fresh paint and a few accessories can make a world of difference at how you feel about your bathroom.

One Extra Room

Everyone has that one room that doesn’t seem to get the attention it needs during the rest of the year. It could be your office, guest bedroom, mudroom, craft and sewing room or storage room if you have one. Use the Do The 25 Scoop And Cha Cha Cha Your Clutter Away!

The Best Way To Approach This

The easiest way to approach this is to use the method that works with your body. Enter the room looking for things to declutter from Left to Right,Top to Bottom and Clockwise. If you are left handed you will move Right to Left, Top to Bottom and Counterclockwise. 

But First

It is important to have your 9 Daily Habits Home Keeping Made SIMPLE each day done. Many times when decluttering projects begin, the extra work can take away from our daily habits. When you think about it, it is like taking on a part time job. Don’t let them. It is more important that your day to day activities get done first.

Don’t Be Like Me When I Began

I was so into the decluttering that I would let the dishes and laundry pile up. I was trying to do this in my pajamas. Therefore myself and my house actually looked worse.


Did You Know?…

Many of the decluttering gurus are assuming you have a daily routine in place. Instead, they focus on the clutter you have accumulated never mentioning whether you know what you are wearing, eating and what bills you will be paying. Isn’t that in fact the real reason your home is full of clutter? You have never really put in place a set of 9 Life Changing Daily Habits because you see, Clearing Out Clutter Isn’t As Easy For Some As It Is For Others.
