You may remember Cole from Cole's Bedroom Tidy. He was definitely a minimalist in the end, but you couldn't tell from all the clutter!
We went through all of Cole's items and ended up throwing out almost everything in the medicine cabinet and under the sink. He actually had six toothbrushes! One particular challenge for Cole was removing all of his toiletries from their excess packaging. This allowed him to store them using much less space and he was more likely to use them regularly. This was especially important because a few of his toiletries were on automatic order every month, so if he didn't use them up he got backlogged!
What remained easily fit in his open storage, so it was easy to access and streamlined!
We had Cole "shop his kitchen" for the Coke glass that holds his toothpicks and we found the mason jar for his Q-tips in the garage. The Aveeno bath salts were in a large box, so we threw that away. In general extra packaging will keep you from using everything because it is just a *little* less convenient to access. Studies show that habits you would like to develop have to be almost ridiculously convenient! So if you want to take more baths and use those bath salts, keep em handy!
That's all for Cole's bathroom! What storage challenges do you have for your toiletries?
