If you are just seeing my blog for the first time, last week we discussed clutter and how overwhelming it can be. We talked about how to have a clutter-free bedroom quickly and how decluttering doesn’t have to be overwhelming. There is a free printable clutter-free bedroom checklist over there, so go ahead and grab that and get started!

For those that saw last week’s post, how did you do on last week’s bedroom declutter challenge? Did you make any progress? I got rid of a lot of stuff from my bedroom and it feels a lot less overwhelming in there now. There is more of a calm and peaceful feeling when I walk into my bedroom now that all the clutter is gone.

Cluttered Bathroom

This weekend we are going to tackle the bathroom clutter. I have cabinets in my bathroom where I keep sheets and towels, hair products, bath products, first aid supplies, and so much more stuff. It can get crazy in there! Take a look for yourself!

Messy Bathroom

(I started organizing the top shelf before I remembered to take a picture!)

See all the chaos? I don’t know how in the world I ever found anything in there. So how do you have a clutter-free bathroom? Let me tell you!

Check out this amazing spring cleaning checklist from Sarah at Garden Full of Dreams!

  • Take everything out. You can put everything in a laundry basket, in the bathtub, on the floor… I don’t care, just empty the cabinets.
  • Clean off the shelves if needed
  • Put some type of organizing containers in the cabinets. I use these cute little cube storage containers.
  • Go through your items and toss anything that has expired.
  • Get rid of lotions or anything that has just a drop in it.
  • Do you have a ton of free samples that came in the mail a year ago? Toss them!
  • You can donate perfumes or body sprays or anything that is almost full that you never plan to use.
  • Get rid of old toothbrushes. (Or reuse them for cleaning!)
  • Start putting things into the containers in some sort of order. I put toothpaste, mouthwash, and toothbrushes in one container. In another, I put hair styling appliances. Lotions go in a separate container. You get the point.

Linen Cabinet/Closet

  • Take everything out.
  • Sort through the bedding and toss anything that is worn out (or rip up sheets to use as cleaning rags!)
  • Donate any old blankets that you never plan to use again
  • Sort through your bathroom towels and washcloths. If they are gross, toss them! You can replace these for pretty cheap.
  • Start putting them back into the closet. (I fold my sheets Martha Stewart style and put them into storage baskets.)

Under the sink

  • Take everything out
  • Get rid of anything that has expired if necessary
  • Wipe the shelf clean
  • Use organizing containers to put your stuff back in, such as bathroom cleaners, extra toilet paper rolls, etc.

Here is an awesome cleaning caddy Bushra at Bushra’s Lifestyle made for under $10!


  • If you have kids, then you probably have bath toys. Toss any that have mold on them!
  • Toss any shampoo bottles and conditioners that have less than one use left
  • If you have small pieces of soap laying around, put them in a reusable drawstring soap bag so they don’t go to waste.
  • Toss any old or rusty razors


  • Clear everything off the sink
  • Wipe it clean
  • Only keep things on your sink that you use on a daily basis
  • Get rid of expired makeup
  • Place makeup brushes upside down in a container half full of pebbles (Reuse old candle containers for this! Clean out the wax, put some pebbles from Dollar Tree in the container, and put your brushes in!)

Easy Bathroom Organizing Hacks

  • Attach a metal strip to the inside of your cabinet door to hang tweezers, nail clippers, or bobby pins.
  • Install a shelf above your bathroom door to store extras like toilet paper, cotton balls, q-tips, etc.
  • Hang your cleaning products on a tension rod under your sink
  • Install multiple towel racks on the back of the bathroom door to hang towels

Now you have a clutter-free bathroom! And it didn’t take that long! The whole process does not need to be overwhelming and the end result will make you feel so much better! Now light that candle, grab a glass of wine, and soak in a warm bath. You deserve it.

      Thank you! I agree!! One of my pet peeves is when things keep falling so I have to keep the clutter out! 😁

      1. I can’t tell you how many closets/cupboards in the house used to have falling objects every time you opened them! It was like open at your own risk! No more.

  7. Great tips and I like the idea of putting shelf above the bathroom door to add storage. It’s true once you get everything out and start from the clean slate. It started to make sense.

    1. Michelle says:

      Thank you! It may take a little bit of time to take everything out and put it back, but the end result makes it all worth it. πŸ™‚

      1. That’s so true.

  8. I think the most intimidating rooms to do are the kitchen and bathroom! So many knick knacks and tiny objects that don’t stay organized. I love your tip on taking every single item out and starting fresh!! πŸ™‚

    1. Michelle says:

      I agree! They’re the rooms that take the longest for me. Thank you!

  9. Thank you for sharing this helpful post! I share the bathroom with my teenage sister and omg…I’ll lock the bathroom and chuck all her stuff out first when I try this out! Thank you!

    1. Michelle says:

      Haha!! You’re welcome! Hope it helps!

  10. […] These tips are good to remember while you are deculttering your bathroom! […]

  11. I’ve just thrown out a lot of expired items. I can’t believe I’ve stored all these make-up, old toothbrushes, rusty razors, etc. This checklist is great! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Michelle says:

      I know! It’s crazy isn’t it? Thank you!!

  12. […] at Blessings by me created this Best Bathroom Cleaning Checklist for you. She is a very organized person who knows how to tackle every task in a quick and organized […]

  13. I LOVE this post Michelle! Isn’t it absolutely amazing how we can so innocently over time accumulate more junk than any one person has ever seen? 😲 What amazes me even more is how we become almost desensitized to it for awhile, right? Walk right by it every day until finally it clicks how you literally feel tense or frustrated as you walk by it?

    I’m a firm believer that de-cluttering a space does something awesome for the soul. You literally feel lighter and more peaceful, just like you said. Few things bring me more satisfaction than donating unneeded items that will be a blessing to someone else and getting rid of absolute junk clutter!

    I love your tips and will be keeping them in mind as the home improvements march on! Praying yours are also going smoothly and that you’re seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Blessings to you dear friend! 🧑

    1. I agree. I feel so much better when there’s no clutter taking up space. It’s so stressful having stuff everywhere that’s not even being used.

      Thank you so much! I’m glad you found them helpful. πŸ˜€ So far the renovations are going well and are nonstop. πŸ™‚ I pray the same for you! πŸ’•
