Feeling Motivated to Declutter and Clean the En-suite

Cleaning the bathroom

I’ve been longing to get to the day where I have enough time and motivation to declutter our en-suite bathroom. Today was that day and this was the embarrassing mess that I was faced with…

I took everything off the shelves and placed them into an empty washing basket.

Then I sorted those items into the ones that I wanted to display and those that needed to be put away. Here’s the transformation…

I still need to find a place for the items that I didn’t put back. To be honest, I’ll probably just squeeze those into the cupboard under the sink for later sorting. That’s a job for a other day. It’s all about baby steps.

We have to remember that we’d never do anything if we planned to do it all in one day.

Until tomorrow…

  1. Sometimes having the visual of clean and orderly helps push you into more. Good luck, lovely bathroom.

    You have done a great job!
    I have got to the stage where I need to be harsh with myself. I’m still not 100% committed to binning stuff though. It’s much harder now all the tips and charity shops are shut but I’m going to try my best.

    • Thank you. I need to get better at throwing things away too – it’s really hard as I always think I can find a use for the items. I am also feeling less motivated to put things in charity bags now that I can’t actually take them to the charity shop. My cat boot is full already 😀. The problem there is that I can go back and take things out (ha ha) which is not a good thing. Good luck!

        Ah well, here’s the thing. If you don’t need something out of that bag whilst it’s standing there waiting to go to the charity shop, it’s the right decision to get rid and purpose it to someone else who can use it! We all have too much stuff.
        I used to dream someone would just come and do it all for me though…not gonna happen. We have to do it ourselves.

      • Ha ha, very good point that you made
