Cabinets and Drawers
Close the cabinets and drawers, and the mess disappears. But once a year, do yourself a favor and clean them out.
In the kitchen, remove anything that's not being used on a regular basis, as well as mismatched storage lids and bowls, out-of-date herbs and spices, and anything that doesn't really belong in the kitchen.
In the bathroom, throw away expired medicines and prescriptions, nearly empty bottles of rarely used items, and last year's sunscreen (you should replace it yearly). Note: Do not dispose of medicine in the toilet. Alarming levels of numerous drugs are now appearing in many water supplies. Many pharmacies are now accepting expired medications for recycling.
Wash down the cabinets and drawers, inside and out, and reorganize the contents.
