Organizing Tip of the Week: Toss expired products

Sounds too easy right?  I recently took the time to toss out any expired products in my medicine cabinet/makeup stash and I was amazed by how much needed to be thrown out.  You'd be surprised by how much space opens up when you start ditching the expired!

  1. It is so true! I was shocked to see some of the expiration dates of items that we still had. Some of them definitely probably moved with us four years ago too!

  2. I'm afraid to look. It will be such a "duhh" moment when I do.

  12. This is a great tip! I try to do this at least twice a year. It's amazing what you find still lurking in those medicine cabinets.
