Admit it, when you read that title, you started singing that Becky G song “Shower,” didn’t you?
I’m about to do something I never thought I’d do- invite my readers into my shower. Sort of. There are a few reasons why this is a rare occurrence- we are currently saving money to do a bathroom remodel here in a few years. Our bathroom fixtures, except for the vanities, are cheap and not in good shape. The bathtubs are horrible.
Our bathtub in the master bath is horrible for a different reason. On any given day, when I or my husband are in the shower, this is what you might hear: *running water, running water, crash! running water, running water, BOOM! running water, running water, BANG!**
You get the idea. But why all the noise? Well, our tub and shower are kind of on the narrow side. And by kind of, I mean REALLY narrow. Plus, the inside of the shower looks like this:
Bottles, bottles everywhere. Did I mention that the majority of them are EMPTY?
Kid shower items in my shower? But their bathroom is down the hall. And do we really need 6 cups to wash little girl hair?
Ok, this part doesn’t look so bad…
I want to get a bigger shampoo rack (or whatever you call this thing) so I can fit more things on it, but in the meantime, I decided to do what I could. I started by throwing away those empty shampoo bottles.
I also looked at what is being kept in the shower that we don’t need- I removed all but one cup for washing little girls’ hair, and while I left her shower products, I moved them. I also removed that bottle of baby oil gel that was taking up the bottom of my shampoo rack- can’t remember the last time I used that.
Then, I moved that bottle of Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body to my cabinet. I don’t use it everyday, and I figured I could get it out when I want to use it. By the way, if you don’t use Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub, stop reading right now, get in your car, go to Wal-Mart, and buy some right now. It’ll be the best $7 you ever spent and you’ll wonder where Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub has been all your life. Wonder how many times I can say “Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub” in one blog post?
When all was said and done, I stepped back to admire a shower that looked like this:
My husband and I both start and end our day here in the shower- we might as well make it an organized and simplified experience. Not to mention, a much quieter one.
