Ok we have talked a lot this week about streamlining our lives for the better and to make 2019 the year you loved you. I am praying that it has blessed you as much as it has blessed me to write. Trust me when I say that when I am writing these topics, I am preaching to myself too.
Today I want to share three things that you can organize and clean this weekend that will completely change your days – for real y’all. We put all these efforts into making our kids lives organized and picture perfect – and then you look at our bedrooms, cars, makeup drawers, and purses and you would think it was a different person. Or maybe everything is a mess (that’s me most of the time!) and you need to at least get a few things in order to see progress and kick start your next projects. Here are my three things that I know change my life when I keep clean, happy, and organized…
- Clean out your makeup, hair supplies, and skincare. There was a time when I would have rather shaved my head before letting someone see my bathroom drawers. Getting ready was a headache and I hated it. One day, I had enough, said a few choice words and cleaned it all out! I bought myself some organizational supplies, and created a bathroom counter that I loved. Now – when I get ready every day – its my favorite. I feel like a different RB that has her shit together HA! So I challenge you to take a few hours this weekend and go through it all! Throw out ALLLLLL the product you don’t use or is old. Don’t keep it just in case. You won’t use it. Literally, clean all of your product – I am talking take a wet towel or disinfecting wipe and clean bottles and containers. Make it all shine. Clean your brushes and separate everything by use. Then only put things back that belong. Also organize your jewelry for easy access! Don’t create a museum that you can’t touch – make it livable and easy to keep clean and use. You will find that you will actually enjoy getting ready and your products. At the end of this post I am going to share some organizational pieces I use :).
- Clean out your purse! Dump it all out. Throw away all the wrappers, receipts, and old food :). Then make a small stack of things that you want to keep. Now think about what you need that you don’t have in there now – what would make your life easier? What do you always wish you had on you? Tissues, wet wipes, chargers, hand sanitizer, chapstick, etc. are things that always make sure I have in addition to the usuals. Also, take all those extra makeup bags that you found in your bathroom and divide the contents in your purse into bags for easy access. This way everything will have a place and you will know were to find it. You will feel like a new, grown up woman that has a clean purse HA! But for real.
- Clean out your car! Ok – I am so guilty of this. I practically live in my car. So the truth is that it gets messy. I sometimes refer to it as a moving trashcan. But y’all. The happiness I feel when it is cleaned out, floors vacuumed and smell good? Well I feel like I could take on the world! I started late last year making a clean car a non negotiable. Every day I clean it out. Once a month I have it washed and I vacuum. I keep smell good stuff in it constantly. I am always carpooling kids in addition to my own – it is such a relief to know that I don’t need to make a mad dash at cleaning it out and spraying febreeze when I have to pick everyone up. My kids are older and we don’t have car seats anymore so I know that this is easier for me – but everyone can make baby steps. Trust me – it will change your days.
Ok those are my three things I challenge you to get done this weekend and next week! If you do, take a pic and tag me! I would love to see!! Below is a link to an Amazon list of things that might help you!
