Any attempt to clean out part of our apartment is a win-win situation for me. This challenge fits right in with my 2012 goals (win #1) and I get to de-stress after a Monday full of work (win #2).
I agree, the bathroom cabinet is not exactly a closet, but sometimes getting a little space cleaned up is the best motivation. I am going to start with our bathroom cabinet as well. I noticed the other day when I grabbed for some extra toothpaste that the wonderful air vent located underneath the cabinet heats up all our extra bathroom supplies. Let's just say the shampoo's were extra watery. Ick. No better time to clean out all the crap!
I first got out all the current supplies, extras and random bathroom items.
I noticed that I seem to keep semi-empty bottles with little to no substance left. I took a handful of these items straight to the dishwasher to get a good clean so I can reuse them when I travel.

I then took my travel/cosmetic bags that were not in use and put them all together to make storing easier. I kept one of the larger travel bags out and filled it with some essentials so I can have a travel pack ready to go whenever I need.
I ran into a few products that I don't think will ever get used so those got moved to a throw away pile.
When it was all said and done, I got rid of a lot of useless things and found three tubes of toothpaste I didn't know we had! Guess I won't need to buy that for a while! I am glad to get a small project done, I always feel more accomplished.
This cleaning project spurred some new year cleaning bug and I have started a small pile of things I don't need from around the house. I informed my husband of the de-cluttering just in case things of his go missing. It might happen. Just saying
How about your clutter? What do you do when you find you have too much? Any good methods to keep clutter at bay?
