Cleaning out the bucket under the bathroom sink

IMG_0960For some reason, we have a wooden bucket filled with plastic items used for hair styling under our bathroom sink.

This bucket has been quietly sitting and collecting dust (an embarrassing amount of dust) for months (dare I say years) without one of us using any of the items in it.

I decided to do an inventory of the items in the bucket. I dumped everything out in the bathtub so I could give them a good wash.

  • 17 hair clips
  • 13 combs – including one from an airplane flight my parents took 19 years ago.
  • 3 plastic brushes – including one shaped like a Christmas tree
  • 2 plugs – which don’t fit in any of our sinks or bathtubs.
  • 1 hair styling tool
  • 1 pumice stone
  • 1 sponge
  • 1 piece of string
  • 1 rubber glove

Total – 40 items

I managed to get rid of 26 of them.

  • Garbage Bin – 2 plugs, 1 pumice stone, 1 sponge and 1 piece of string
  • Recycling Bin – 12 combs, 3 brushes and 1 hair clip.
  • Donation Bin – 5 hair clips

I kept the rest, but not in the bucket. Now I have to figure out what to do with a nice empty wood bucket. One thing’s for sure – I’ll never have to buy another hair clip again.
