Organizing Your Bathroom Often Requires a BIG Purge
Sometimes life has a way of sneaking up on us and, before we know it, our clutter becomes overwhelming. This disorganization and clutter in this particular bathroom was a product of many factors:
#1 The client had lived in this house for a few decades.
The longer you live in one place, the more stuff you collect because you don’t have a super urgent reason to downsize. This particular home had a huge master bath with only one occupant so there was plenty of room to store the extra clutter!
#2 Health challenges made it difficult to clean and keep up with the clutter
As our health deteriorates, we sometimes lose the desire or have the capacity to create order in our life. Health challenges will almost always take priority. The tragic part of this situation is that when you are sick, this is probably the most important time to have space and a clear/clean environment. Space always makes us feel better!
#3.Being surrounded by a lot of stuff helps us to feel less lonely when we live alone.
Some people equate more stuff with greater happiness. They will try to fill the void in their life by accumulating more things.
Unfortunately, this project was completed after the client moved into an assisted living community.
The good news is that we were able to donate all of the usable toiletries to a local women’s shelter and they were ecstatic!
