In De-clutter, De-claim, De-cline, I pretended to work in the sink room. In D,D,D,De-clusion, I really AM gonna work in there! Promise!!

House’s Home !
De-clutter, De-claim, De-cline
Now we’re in the conclusion of D,D,D- the De-clusion. (At least I assume it’s the conclusion! But you know what happens when ya assume!!!)
Alrightey, let’s refresh your memory of the sink room counter:
Broom be gone!
I know, I know! The hamper is NOT on the counter! But, it’s significant, so must be included!
First, I found this hamper, as we were unpacking:
Purple hamper!! Plastic purple hamper.
And I filled it with toys, and toiletries that needed to come to the
bath sink room. You know me, gotta save those steps! I realized, it would be so much more practical, in the flood sink room, when it rains. So, that was first on the agenda.
better, drier. Also, the plastic will not attract bugs, in the same way the woven grass would!
And we already had a pre-existing palmetto bug problem, no need to add fodder to the fire!
Palmetto bug, in its final death throes. I chose not to video it. You’re welcome!
These bugs are huge!! (Those are 1 inch tiles. JK!! But they are huge!! The bugs, not the tiles.)
As I was moving the woven basket, to replace it, all kinds of roaches scurried out and away. Yuck!! Thankfully, DD1 had just walked in, so she was able to help me with La Cucaracha dance!
Good move (ha!) on replacing that hamper, Melinda!! Thanks!! Sometimes I DO use my brain well!!
Woven roach motel gone!
So, 1 major space taker, in the donate pile right off the bat! Yeah!!
Gorgeous purple, woven hamper, I love ya! But I gotta let ya go. I love my new, clean, roach-less room better! Adios!
Toys, and more toys. Since they haven’t noticed them missing till now, I think I’ll be safe in donating them. Yay!! Gonna fill up that rejected hamper!!
Do the girls really need a wardrobe of toothbrush choices?? Apparently, yes.
Sometimes their teeth might not feel like being brushed with a red brush. They’re sensitive, and need to be pampered! Teeth have feelings too!!
Oh yes, the classic, “3 band-aids left in the box.”
We like to be prepared for any rash emergency. Or are we just too lazy to finish squeezing out all the remainder??
Since “remainder” is a math term, I’ll let you decide!
2 of these things don’t belong…
Since they don’t belong in the sink room, they got banished to the laundry dungeon!
A butter knife?? To cut the medication dose in half, or what??
In the donation
box basket, with you!!
Yada, yada, yada, more junk.
Look, Ma- drawers!!
Who needs combs, and brushes in this house??? Oh yeah, the girls…. Don’t worry, I do NOT use that nasty wire brush on them!!
Ahem!! Not by a long shot, are you done!
Okay, since it’s only 1 box, it’s only a short shot, then.
AND!! You haven’t cleaned yet, either!
Dirty sink. In the sink room. Imagine that.
You’ve read all the same slob blogs I have. De-cluttering comes first!! So cleaning comes easier!!
There ya go! All nice and tucked away!
Now, I’m done done!
Nice and clean! Uh, de-cluttered!
So nice and clean!! Ahem!! Oh uh, I mean de-cluttered!! I can’t do it ALL in one day!! That’s just crazy talk!
The rocks are from PP’s carefully curated collection. Yes, we meant to leave them there.
Don’t these just say “calm, and serenity now” to you??
(Have I mentioned how much I HATE this black , faux leather, contact paper, that is on every flat surface in this house?? ARGH!!)
Oh yes, yes, “Calm, and serenity now.”
Take a well deserved break, Melinda! The sink room counter is lovely! And the black highlights the rough, natural texture of the rocks.
