Day 1 Master Bath ~ GOT TO RELAX

Ok, so Day 1 was pretty much a success. I decided not to really do any deep cleaning while purging. I did wipe out the drawers and cabinets, but I will leave the really deep cleaning for when everything is in its place. I tossed a lot of beauty products that were old and saved a few that weren't for my sister that I know I won't use.

I began by evaluating what I wanted to store in the bathroom cabinets. We have a vanity with HIS/HER sinks, but the counter still has items for Declan such as formula and bottle warmer (that will change very soon- He turns 1 on Thursday - tear). We also use an electric toothbrush and Waterpik that take up a lot of space on the countertop.

So, that being said everything else needs a home in a drawer or cabinet. I decided to only keep items in the bathroom we would need in the bathroom. In my cabinet, I keep extra Q-tips, cotton balls, my makeup and hair products including hair dryer and flat iron and other toiletries.

In my hubby's side of the cabinet, we store First Aid items including Band-Aids, Peroxide and Alcohol; a small heater for winter, and a container of basic medicines like Itch Cream, Ear drops, Eye drops, etc. The rest of the major medicines like Tylenol and cough drops are stored on a high shelf in the Linen Closet in our hallway.

We are going to put locks on all of our bathroom cabinets this week, but who wants to dig through a cabinet on their hands and knees in the middle of the night while suffering a stomach ache or headache?

I emptied everything out, purged and replaced it all in a neat and orderly way.
Somewhat Organized BEFORE
Too Many Products
Space Saver: The Overhang (Clever Container)

Out of Day 1, the most important thing I did was create a Spa Night Container for myself. The first step in becoming less stressed it to take time for yourself. So, I took all of my items I use to relax and pamper myself and put them in one container. I can pull it out, move the toys off of the tub and have one night to myself each week - MY GOAL.

What it includes:

  • Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Scrub for Boby
  • Perfectly Posh D-Tox Body Mud "Stripper" (facial mask)
  • Perfectly Posh Night & Day Natural Facial Moisturizer with Olive Oil 
  • The Healer - Perfectly Posh Shea Butter in a stick form 
  • Homemade soap that was a gift
  • Various foot pumice stones, scrubbers and wooden massaging tools I can use on tired feet (A Gift from my hubby on the night before our wedding)
  • True Blue Spa Cooling Eye Compresses from Bath and Body Works
  • Recipe cards for Homemade Beauty treatments (I will share some of these in a later post)
  • I also have a bag of Epson salt for long soaks in the tub. I plan to de-stress even more by adding exercising back into my weekly routine along with Yoga- gotta love the new Roku box where I have a few new Yoga videos waiting for me for naptime.
