{20 Day Challenge} Day 16: Wardrobe & Day 17: Medicine Cabinet

We had a Family Day Out yesterday, visiting family and friends. It was nice to get away for the day, especially after spending two days giving our front garden a Garden Makeover, however it puts me a day behind in the 20 Day Challenge! So I decided to tackle Day 16 and Day 17 today. 

Day 16 - Wardrobe

How do you store your clothes? Wardrobe? Walk-in Wardrobe? Drawers? Both? 
At the moment, I don't have the luxury of using my wardrobe, as we have converted the area into Master M's nursery (see it here). Every time I had the motivation to get in there and sort it out, Master M was due for his nap - well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it lol...so it is now on my to-do list tomorrow (after 1st nap). Most of the stuff in there is more sentimental items so I will sort through them after giving the wardrobe a good clean. Watch this space. 

So, onto the next task...De-clutter & Organise Clothes
I love op-shopping and at the beginning of this challenge I could have easily opened my own op-shop with the amount of clothes that I owned. Thankfully, I tackled and de-cluttered a massive pile of clothes during the Main Bedroom challenge because there were piles in almost every corner of the room and it was frustrating me. 

I am happy to report that all my clothes were actually in the drawers (laundry up to date YAY!), just not organised (Doh!), I got a bit slack about putting clothes away properly (Oops!). I went through each drawer, asking myself - Does it fit? Have I worn it in the last few months? Will I actually wear it? I am getting better at answering these questions honestly and got rid of some items today, putting them straight into a bag and in the car to drop off to the op-shop the next morning. 

I am a new liker of filing your clothes or rolling them in the drawers - 1) It gives you more space, 2) You are able to see what you have, and 3) It looks more organised. What do you think? 

Do you HANG, FOLD, FILE or ROLL your clothes? 

I love opening my drawers now, and I can open them with ease. 
New rule though - {One In - One Out} (that's going to be hard, but I will TRY)

This is how I organise my bracelets & necklaces. I found this funky mug tree at the op-shop for a couple of dollars - Perfect for displaying jewellery. How do you organise your jewellery?

Day 17 - Medicine Cabinet

Our cleaning task for today was to clean light switches & door handles! I really feel for those that have more than 3 bedrooms in their houses! We have a 2 bedroom house, and there are quite a lot of light switches and door handles...so I can only imagine that there will be two, maybe three times more in a bigger house (Good luck!).

My favourite task today was De-clutter and Organise Medicine Cabinet. This is an area I definitely needed to improve on. I keep Pamol & antibiotics in the fridge and First Aid items are kind of all over the house - bathroom cupboard, junk drawer & on the fridge. NOW...it is all in the one container that I keep on the top shelf in the pantry. I made my own label, filled out the Emergency Contacts form and popped it in, then put our 'First Aid' items/Medicine in this tub.

It's such a great feeling to know that everything is in the one place - so when I have a headache or the kids need a plaster, it's right there - in the First Aid Kit.

Miss B has her own Asthma Kit. It holds spare Spacers, Masks and Inhalers. Every 2-3 months, I check her inhalers and top up if I need to.

What do you have in your First Aid Kit?
