Purge 2012 Day 1: The Master Bath

One of my goals for the summer is to purge the house of stuff.

Ike is doing in-house therapy for the next two weeks. We can't leave the house and Elli and Gwen are across the country. Sounds like an opportunity for me!

I decided to start slow today. The Master Bath. I pulled everything off of shelves, opened drawers, tossed ten year old makeup, expired medicine and products that are just OLD. I even cleaned the drawers and shelves themselves. Everything in that bathroom is reorganized and has a beautiful mise en place. I was even able to move the first aid supplies from the bookcase in the bedroom (with the adult reading collection) to one of the medicine cabinets.

Then I washed the entire bathroom down. Woot! Go me!

I wanted to start small. A small room that I could go over with Gray in tow. I then folded a couple of loads of laundry. Logic would dictate that I do the Master Bedroom next, but since the girls aren't here...I'm going to go do their room next. It will go a whole lot faster with them gone.

Currently Gray is napping and Ike is working with the therapist. I need to figure out what to do for dinner. But next? Another load of laundry I think.

Doesn't it feel oddly good to throw a whole lot of crap out? :) I find when I get in a purge mood I just throw out everything and get really into it that I really do a good job of getting rid of all of that 'use once in 5 years' kind of stuff.

Exactly. I rarely wear makeup, so I have a tendency to hang onto it. Most of the stuff I threw out today was approx 15+ years old. Yuck! Like I really want that on my face.

Downside is that now I need to go out and reinvest in the basics for a makeup kit again.
