day 14 - under the bathroom sink!

It's Day 14 out of 21 and today's challenge is organizing under the bathroom sink. Ugh. It's one of those places that I would never EVER choose to show off to anyone, but for the sake of my organizing progress...I'll do it today! There were 4 "under the bathroom sink" options, so I chose the worst place - MINE! The other three just need a little straightening up, but are pretty functional and organized "as is". I'll save you the agony of sharing a gazillion pictures of the other under the bathroom sink spaces and let you just take my word for it that they are much better than the one I organized today! Plus, I don't think my husband wanted me to share his side of the cupboard!

I don't know what it is...I'm actually a really organized person, but sometimes I just go through this rebellion phase and shove things in places just to get them out of the way. Can anyone relate?

Not quite using the containers I already have to their full potential!

I took everything out and piled it all on the floor. Anything that was "backstock" (extra deodarants, body wash, etc.) was put away in another "home", so they wouldn't clutter up the space anymore.

Now, that's more like it!

I figured while I was at it, I would straighten up and clean out a couple of the drawers in my bathroom. Yuck!

I still don't like the way this drawer looks with all the cords, but for is what it is.

The Counter - BEFORE
My poor husband. He's so good at putting things away on "his side', but me? Not always!

The Counter - AFTER

My goal this week is to have it this clear every day after I've gotten ready.

I'm so thankful for this challenge motivation because it was time to get these "out of sight, out of mind" places back to looking the way they did when we first moved in 9 months ago! I'm still trying to catch up with Day 13 - The Medicine Cabinet. I hope to get to it tonight!

It all looks so ......organized! I've been doing the same thing the past week or so. It feels good to get things back in order. However, I have no before pictures to show. :(
