{battle of the bathroom clutter}

There is still more I would like to do to pretty up our bathroom but I’m so excited to finally have the counter organized and tidy after months of it looking like this …
so messy
Something I’ve started doing since reading an e-book I got from A Slob Comes Clean is tackling messes like this in 5-minute increments. I rarely have the time to completely organize and clean an area so doing a little at a time keeps me from feeling overwhelmed. This particular project wasn’t that big but it’s a space we see several times a day so it feels so much better to have it cleaned up.
much better
I am in love with my new Yellow Heart Art print. It’s fabulous because it’s true. I heart Leonora’s beautiful work and her lovely Instagram posts.

And that pretty print from YLKPhotography always brings a smile to my face. Yony is a local photographer and all around awesome person. Her photography is really inspiring.

I also really love the two glass jars I found at Target ($3 for the pair!!) which I’m currently using to hold razors and hair ties. Keeps them away from small hands and easy to find.

There is more to come before I consider this particular battle complete but Operation Declutter 2015 is going strong! I’m hopeful my next trip to IKEA will result in some updates. Fingers crossed!

Today’s creative daily prompt is “refresh.” One of my favorite things about the start of a new year is finding a new day planner. This time I decided to build my own.

I bought all the components as my Christmas gift to me. It’s so refreshing to have it all set up and ready to use. I’ve color coded the months. I’ve got calendar stickers and washi tape ready to pretty things up along the way. I geek out over office supplies so I’m super excited about it.

What makes you feel refreshed for the new year?
