Decorating Tip: Day 9

Declutter.



I'm working on our bathroom for the One Room Challenge, and this week's very first step is to declutter what I'm not using. 

This rattan basket is something I've had for a long time. Up until today, I have used it to keep washcloths handy by the sink. But it just doesn't fit my vision for how I want the space to look when the six-week One Room Challenge is over. 

The basket was also the perfect vessel for all the excess body sprays and lotions that I'm not using. By putting them together like this, it makes it feel like a gift! Which makes me feel a lot better about giving it away. Naturally there's some guilt about spending too much money on Aveda sunscreen that I don't like the smell of. And angst about simply giving away perfectly good things I do like (body spray) but have too much of to use before it goes bad. 

If you struggle with decluttering, contact my friend and partner Erica. She is a professional organizer and an exceptionally nice person! Visit Your Organized Space to learn more.

Linking up with Marty at A Stroll Through Life today.

  1. I love your idea of creating a "gift" for items you are getting rid of. What a great idea! :-)
