Something needing to do in my bathroom - especially the make up drawer. Next on the list of "what to declutter"

Recent major downsize so have done all of the above (except the plastic toys - child-free house here!). One thing I have done is to keep all cleaning products in the kitchen. Ive managed to fit most items into a caddy that I can grab and take to other rooms as needed. And for cleaning (haven't yet got myself onto the baking soda and vinegar thing) I discovered several bottles of Sugar Soap when clearing an over-stuffed garage and laundry so have my spray bottle of well watered down sugar soap - fantastic for cleaning down kitchen benches, splash-back, glass and all other hard surfaces. So that's my go-to cleaner these days - all those different cleaners I used to fill my cupboards with - gone!

My husband insists on bringing back hotel toiletries every time... I have given up. But I decant shampoo and shower gel into dispensers and use them mostly as handwash. The soaps are used for guests. The conditioner goes into another dispenser and is used on my sweaters.... and I do use the hand lotion! I must admit the vanity kits are useful to carry in my handbag along with the lotion.

Since I have cleaning staff I usually hand out toothbrushes etc to them for their kids and they love the little bottles of shampoo and lotion.

Quick tip. Hair conditioner can be used for a shave in an emergency! Doesn't foam but makes the beard really soft.
