This one doesn't sound like much--until you open up the cabinet, the makeup drawer, the medicine cabinet... It's time to toss all those outdated meds and cold remedies, unused items that have been pushed to the back of a drawer, old makeup, and anything gooey.(lol)

Once you clean out the drawers and cabinets, you'll have more room to store what you really need and less clutter on the counter or sink top. Less clutter means quicker cleaning which translates to more time to stamp!

When it comes to bathroom cleaning, I don't have a specific time to clean mine. I just clean something every time I'm in there. For instance, while I'm in the shower, I spray some Soft Scrub on the walls and glass doors and clean them as needed. After brushing my teeth, I rinse the sink with water and dry with a paper towel. Then I use the wet paper towel to shine the faucet, clean the mirror, countertop and lastly, the toilet rim. The only thing left is the floor, which I do at another time.

Leaving the bathrooms clean whenever I use any of them (we have 2 1/2) only takes an extra minute or two each time. If I could only get my DH to do the same...

I hear you with the hubby doing the same. Great tips Doris.

Don't you just love organization? My husband thinks that all wall space as well as cabinets should be filled with whatever. Shame, shame. After 26 years of marriage I don't see it changing, but he is wonderful with everything else. So, I think I'll keep him. lol

Mine's a keeper, too--especially after 42 years!

Doris, I love your tips. I agree about our loving husbands. Last year I decided to get rid of what I didn't need (no, my husband didn't go :-) We had a yard sale and I sold over $1200.00 worth of things that to this day I have not missed. That gave me lots of money to buy new craft supplies! I need to declutter even more. Lots More!
