De-Junking War - Day 5

The Bathrooms~

We have one and a half baths in our house. For the past 5 months we have basically be down to the small half bath with no outlets. Over Labor Day weekend we started to gut our main bathroom. That was also the weekend that Mr. NtJS had to work almost the whole weekend with no warning. After that weekend he has had to increase his hours at work a lot because of the lack of staff. We are of course grateful that he has a job, but this has been very problematic for finishing the bathroom remodeling. We started to see the light and was exciting about finishing the remodel this past weekend. Then it happened. He came home early from work on Friday sick. He was sick all the way through Monday night. The bathroom is still not done.

However we are so close you can smell it! We are also close enough that I moved us back in today. Normally when I prep for de-cluttering a room I have a mental list of what needs to be done. This time I really had no clue. Our bathroom was now divided up and broken into four different rooms/ closets.

I was surprised when I started emptying boxes by the amount of items that were expired or extremely old with no expiration date. I ended up filling a large trash bag with expired items and extremely old items! I was able to organize everything in a logical way and nothing was cramped. Our bathroom is small so that was amazing to me!

I'm extremely happy with the way things have turned out so far. I have not taken any photos yet because I want until the mirror and shelves are hung, the drop cloth is gone and the vanity doors shut all the way. Then we will show you before and after photos along with a post about the project. I can't wait to show you the new and improved bathroom!

Have you checked expiration dates on your first aid items and toiletries lately? Do you have a de-cluttered bathroom? Feel free to share a photo of your space.

This battle has been won! The next room to tackle is the office. This is by far the worst room in the house. Check back next Friday to see how the final room is shaping up or if I've lost the battle in the worst room.
