#Konmari before and afters – my bathroom

If you missed Monday’s post, you can catch up here.

Marie Kondo suggests that you start with clothes first (as these are the easiest items; you start with the out-of-season clothes) and do all the sentimental items last.

There’s sense to this because you don’t want to slow down and you want to keep up the momentum.

Once I got the thinking around her method, I decided to start with my bathroom first as it is (quite literally) the smallest bathroom in the world, and always gives me the momentum to start organising, cleaning, whatever.

I asked myself, “does this spark joy?” and most of it didn’t, to be honest, so I tossed it. It being eye shadow, powder foundation, a few old sticky lip glosses, tons of samples (why?!), hair things I hate but keep and toner (I seemed to have a lot of toner).

This is the make-up I kept. I keep it in a little bag so if I’m late and travelling with D, I can do my make-up in the car. I have another lipliner and some more lipsticks permanently stored in my handbag.

I wrote in a blog post or three ago that her folding method (while making huge waves on the internet) was the thing I was least excited by. Seems like I should have been more excited.

If nothing else, this is life-changing.

I got rid of nothing but simply re-folded all the hand towels and two drawers fit into one.

And then the cabinet. These things spark joy (as you can see, 5 hair products!) and I kept the 3 sample products I actually could use and put them in a pretty candle holder or some glass thing I found in the kitchen.

A few other odds and ends and that was the bathroom.

It sparks TREMENDOUS joy to see my bathroom so empty of stuff and I love it.

Also, I do have a thing for Labello!

Long-time readers may remember D and I have a deal – I’m not allowed to blog about or show pics of his stuff. The shelf above this one is his – I Konmari’d it too but no photos!

And there we have it.

Are you inspired yet?

Have you read the book?

  1. […] As I mentioned before, I need motivation to continue so I started with easy organising – my kitchen. I regularly declutter in the kitchen so it’s not an area that will slow me down. […]
