Organi-Spring Week 1, Task 4:  Beauty Products 

Are you a sucker for a 5 for $30 sale on body lotion or buy 1 get 1 sale on shower gel?  How long have some of these products been lurking in your linen closet or shower stall?  Are there scents that no longer appeal to you or products that have lost their aroma?  If these items have been hanging around awhile, there is a good chance they may be expired.  Body lotions have a shelf life of about 2 years (less if it's in a pump); shampoos, conditioners and shower gel last about 3 years.  Pitch anything that is expired or unwanted.  Consider donating any unused/unopened products that are not expired to a local women's shelter.

There is a plethora of information about cleaning out your winter guck and letting the spring sunshine into your home, so we're focusing on those little things around the house that will give you a more organized home and perhaps a bit more storage along the way.  Just 4 weeks, 5 tasks per week, around 10 minutes per task and VOILA! in around an hour a week the little things in life seem a bit more organized.
