My Life - My Organizing Stories If you’re looking for me, I’m under the sink Once a week, I get the urge to do a project. I’ve been wanting to organize the cabinets under the sink in the guest bathroom (which is also the bathroom my 15-year-old daughter uses) for weeks now, but between weddings and other weekend events we’ve been attending, I haven’t had the chance to do so. This past weekend, I tackled this project. I told my family, “If you’re looking for me, I’m under the sink.” This was their cue that I was on a mission, and if they disturbed me, I’d likely involve them. As you can imagine, they left me alone. First off, I emptied everything in the cabinets. Since my teen daughter uses these cabinets, you can imagine what was in them...a bazillion nail polish bottles in every neon color under the sun, dozens of flavored lip balms, countless hair accessories, probably 10 different scented hand lotions, as well as boxes of tissues, extra toilet paper and Dixie cups, pierced ear cleaning supplies...I could go on and on. First, I thought of asking my daughter to do this project on her own, since it was mostly her stuff. Then, I reasoned that it would be kind of fun to do it on my own...besides, I tend to toss out a lot more than she does. Finally, I settled on a compromise...I found everything I felt could probably be tossed and placed it in a bag. My daughter then sorted through the bag and either confirmed that something could, in fact, be tossed OR whether she wanted to keep it. Luckily, she is pretty discerning in this respect and was easily able to say goodbye to most of the items I thought could go...mostly near-empty jars of nail polish, lip balms that we couldn’t twist up any more, and so on. Once everything was weeded out, I wiped the cabinet insides clean. I then separated the keepers into categories, went on a hunt in my kitchen, and found containers to hold like-items together...all nail polishes in one container, all hair accessories in another, and so on. The entire project took me about 45 minutes and boy did I feel great when it was done...especially when my daughter came to check and see if I was still working on it and she saw how organized everything was. She actually said, “Wow, thanks so much...I love it!” and gave me a big hug. Talk about making the entire project a worthwhile endeavor!
