30 Day Tidying Challenge • Day 29 • Bathroom Komono

Welcome to Day 29 of the #30daytidyingchallenge! This challenge runs from February 18th to March 19th, and if you're tidying with me, the plan is to be finished in time for the first day of spring on March 20th (or the March Equinox if you are located in the Southern Hemisphere). This tidying challenge is based on the KonMari method, and I was hugely inspired by these three resources: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and Spark Joy, and Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

To help with the process, I put together this calendar, which shows all the different categories I'll be tidying during the 30 day challenge. Depending on your situation, you may want to tackle this project over a number of months, and that is totally ok too! You can still use the calendar--just follow the order, but take more time for each set of categories.

Day 29 is the last day of the komono category! We'll be going through bathroom komono, hair care, and toiletries.

Some thoughts on Day 29:

1) By storing like items together, there is a clearly defined set of products that belong in the bathroom. While the particulars may be different for each person, if you've been storing like items together, you'll come across some things during tidying that no longer belong in the bathroom. For example, during today's tidying, I found a bottle of acetone, a sewing kit, and many items we only use for travel--all tucked away in our bathroom cabinets. After removing all these items, I was able to better organize what remained. I was also able to store all hair accessories in the bathroom, alongside my hair care products. I'm not sure why I didn't think of this before--previously, I had hair accessories stored both in the bathroom and in the living room.

2) The effects of an inflated stash lingers long after you've stopped shopping. I haven't shopped a whole lot in the last year and a half or so. Since I've been steadily using up products, one would assume that I'd be relatively close to the end of my stash. Ummm, not really. I still have a lot of products left in my collection of hair care and toiletries! Part of the reason is because I stocked up on way too many products during sales in the past. It's going to take me quite a bit more time to dwindle down my stash.

Thank you for tuning into Day 29! If you're tidying alongside me, please let me know how you're doing. I would love to hear about your journey and if you have any tips or tricks to share. I'll see you tomorrow for Day 30. OUR LAST DAY!!
