Decluttering cosmetics and medicines

Bathroom cabinets tend to accumulate outdated and part-used cosmetics and medications, sometimes over periods of years! If yours is overstuffed, take a run through the contents…

First, get rid of everything that’s past its expiry date. This applies mostly to medicines, both prescription and over-the-counter, but rubber items often have expiry dates as well, and cosmetics may change color or grow bacteria over the years even though they have no “official” expiry date.

Next, anything you no longer ever use, and unwanted gift items. Unopened cosmetics and toiletries may be welcomed at shelters.

Multiple combs, brushes, and other equipment? Keep the ones you use, and toss or donate the rest.
