When you buy a new home, or rent out an apartment – you’re typically burdened with whatever generic bathroom fixtures the place came stocked with. Your shower head probably has one spray outlet that’s broken and spitting at you.

3 New Year’s Resolutions You Can Actually Stick To This Year

This is it. This is the year. I’m gonna lose weight and eat healthier. I’m gonna drink less and quit smoking. I’m gonna save money, get rid of my debt, and finally go on that trip I’ve been dreaming of.

But it’s tough. And I get it. New Year’s Resolutions almost never last, destined to become the latest joke you can’t wait to Tweet out. But I’m definitely not here to judge. I completely understand the temptation of that Monday morning doughnut screaming your name. It’s nearly impossible to resist.

And as much as I encourage every single one of you to make a drastic lifestyle change for the better, maybe it’s possible to enhance your life by changing just a few aspects of your day-to-day routine. And you can start in the bathroom

The bathroom you say? Yes, the bathroom. Most likely, your day begins and ends in the bathroom (I hope). And all it takes is a few quick updates to your Lou to potentially get the ball rolling on your other resolutions.

1. Organic Bath Products

Did you know that most commercial soap companies leave out essential ingredients in order to make room for artificial scents and unnecessary chemicals? And these chemicals actually result in cracked and dry skin. Rid your life from the shackles of consumerism and make the switch to organic bathroom products. Your skin will become undeniably fresher and you’ll never imagine a world without handmade products. And who knows? Maybe you’ll find yourself converting to organic food as well.

2. Eliminate The Clutter

Bathrooms lay home to an endless amount of products: hair products, face products, toothbrushes, toothpastes, razors, and who knows how many more. The problem is, many bathrooms tend to be small, so finding adequate storage for items may seem impossible.

Lucky for you, there are plenty of creative storage ideas that you can do yourself with items that are already laying around your house. And a clutter free room will create a clutter free life, free of stress and aggravation.
