22 Easy Ways to Declutter and Organize Your Bathroom

You’re ready to declutter the bathroom? Great! Start by throwing out any products that are expired, or haven’t been used in months. Nix the duplicates – you don’t need three half empty bottles of peroxide. So, combine them into one container and get rid of the rest.

If you’re really ready to cut back, make a list of the items you use on a daily basis. Then, a weekly basis. If it isn’t used weekly, unless it’s part of the first aid kit, it can find a new home. Even though ponytail holders seem to disappear on a daily basis, is it really necessary to have 300 of them? Nope.

Of course, if you have a ton of room, you can always keep extras on hand, but if you’re wanting to declutter, it’s time to cut back a bit.
