Cleaning the countertop of my bathroom vanity is a tedious task as I have to remove all the pretty little jars that hold cotton swabs & balls as well as the knick knacks before wiping it down.
Then I must dust & clean those jars & knick knacks before returning them to their original spots.
I want to simplify these steps because burning an extra 10 calories might endanger my girlish figure. ;-)
Taking inventory of the product in my medicine cabinet was the first step. Nearly half the product have not been used in at least 6 months. I prioritized what I use daily and purged or stored the rest in the closet.
In my search for medicine cabinet organizers, I found great acrylic 2-tier storage containers to store cotton swabs and balls that fit snugly in the cabinet.
I love the concept so much that I added a smaller side-by-side cotton ball/swab container for our guest bathrooms.
My goal is to keep the vanity counter free of clutter but that goal lasted only a few days. You see, I discovered a quaint clock at The Nest Egg recently and thought how lovely it would look on the vanity. It helps me not to lose track of time in the morning as I'm preparing to face the day.
