5 Things You Can Declutter From Your Bathroom in the Next 5 Minutes

The next time you’re brushing your teeth, skip social media and invest in your mental clarity. Take a few minutes and declutter one of the five categories listed below. Within a few days, you’ll have a cleaner, less-cluttered bathroom. 


Although these samples are small, and you swear you’ll use them some day, they’re taking up precious space (physically and mentally). We love taking free things because we feel like we’re winning, but they end up being a burden. You have permission to part with these items. And if that guilt is weighing on you, use this as a reminder to not take free samples the next time.


Check those dates! I guarantee there are several that are past their prime. Pro tip: Quickly group like things together and then purge rather than purging one-by-one. Take this time to get rid of multiples too.


Can body spray and perfume go bad? Not really, but they can lose their potency. Say goodbye to those you haven’t used in over a year.


We tend to keep towels for those “just-in-case” situations or we downgrade them to rags. While keeping a few for these purposes is fine, you don’t need to stockpile them. Get rid of the extras. Pro tip: Fold your towels in thirds or roll them to save space.


Do you head to Target’s travel section to stock up before a trip? You’re not alone. And while this doesn’t seem like a big deal in the moment, it results in a lot of half-used travel toiletries items accruing in your bathroom. You’re going to swear to yourself you’ll use what you purchased the next time you travel, but be honest with yourself–accept that you won’t, and toss the half-used bottles.

Pro Tip: Want a zero waste option? Check out Cadence, which is what I use when I travel. Not sure which I love more–the labels or that they’re magnetic.
