Spring Clean Challenge--Day #16 Update

didn't exactly sound like fun to me. Actually, it sounded like a HUGE chore that I would never accomplish. I'm happy to announce that I was  wrong. I did get it done, and it didn't take near as long as I thought! 

I followed my own definition of "deep clean" for this project. Since I had already cleaned tubs, toilets, and sinks the other day, I decided to do something else. 

Basically, I organized the master bathroom. 

I picked up the dirty clothes and towels out of the floor (come know you have those piles that accumulate too!) and put them where they belong. 

Then, I cleared everything off of the surface space.
Clearly, things are out of place here! 

I went through the "catch-all" on the back of the toilet...

as well as through all the drawers and the medicine cabinet. 

I pulled everything out, sorted it, threw some stuff away, vacuumed out the drawers (all the dust, hair etc), and put everything back in a more organized fashion. Some items got put in the linen closet in the hallway which is where they should have gone in the first place. 

Here are a couple of AFTER photos of the drawer and the "catch-all".

It feel good to have a more organized bathroom and it only took me about 30 minutes during naptime to get it done. I also took the time to sweep the hair off the bathroom floor. I had just washed, dried, and fixed my hair yesterday morning and that always makes for a nice little mess to clean. The sink got wiped out as well, but the shower/tub and toilet were still pretty clean from last week's cleaning. They'll get a good scrubbing in the next few days, I'm sure!



  1. My husband was just expressing concern at the hair all over. Concerned I have a hair loss problem, and we may need to budget for wigs in our near future. Uh-oh, I guess I need to focus on the bathroom more :)
    Your bathroom looks wonderful, and only 30 minutes! That's my kind of cleaning.

  2. Don't you love the way each time these tasks come around, they get easier and easier? Staying on top of everything really makes a difference.
