Happy Spring (Cleaning)!
Today is the first day of spring, and perhaps you’re thinking you’ll get some of that spring cleaning out of the way this weekend! For the next 6 weeks, I will be hosting a series on spring cleaning. Check back every Friday for the newest post, and use the weekend to conquer that spring cleaning list!
This week we will concentrate on cleaning and organizing the bathroom! My bathroom is in serious need of some organizing love.
Usually it stays organized, at least somewhat, but I rarely stay in my own apartment anymore. Unfortunately, we’re stuck in an apartment lease until June, while I spend most of my time in New Orleans working with a client. I sleep at my mother-in-law’s house during the week to save money on gas, instead of driving the hour commute twice a day. Not spending time at my own apartment makes it pretty hard to keep it organized or clean the way I like it. Thankfully, my fiance does a good job of cleaning up while I’m not there, even if he isn’t the neatest person.
I used my new spring cleaning printable (link at the end of this post!), and got started!
First, I started with the bathroom closet, which was definitely in need of spring cleaning. I took one bin out at a time and went through its contents. I threw away expired medicines, or items I had not used in months.
Next, I took everything off the counters, and out of the drawers to clean everything. While putting everything back, I threw away some more items, and sorted things into their bins.
-Angels sing- Ahh, doesn’t this look so much nicer! I just love a clean and organized bathroom! After this, I also scrubbed the walls of my shower, the base of the toilet, and the floor. I had actually recently washed my shower curtain, so I was able to scratch that off my spring cleaning checklist right away! I love that feeling!
As an athletic trainer, my fiance’s tape collection is equivalent to my washi tape collection. I really had no idea that tape had so many different functions. I cleaned up his drawer by using bins to separate his tape, bandages, gloves and medicines. This looks so much better than the chaos it was before!
Thankfully, since I barely use this drawer it was organized, but I rearranged the bins some. I also threw away a few things.
Don’t try to do all your spring cleaning in just one day! I’m taking one day every weekend and picking a room to conquer, it is best to take small steps so you don’t feel overwhelmed!
Good luck spring cleaning your bathroom! Share your photos with me on Instagram @girlorganized or post them to the Girl, Organized Facebook page! I look forward to seeing you after pictures!
