It’s the most amazing habit isn’t it?
And we ALL manage to stick to it.
Twice a day. Religiously.
Just think what we could do.
If we were all as good at other healthy habits as we are at teeth cleaning.
BUT let’s be honest …
The flossing. The mouth wash.
The poking around with those funny little brushes the dentist always wants us to buy.
We’re not so great at it.
Are we? Most of us.
And lots of dental stuff lies UNUSED in the bathroom cupboard.
So today we’re letting go of teeth cleaning clutter …
Just 10 Things – Teeth Cleaning
As always we’ll stick to the just 10 things rules:
- Take 5 minutes or so, 15 minutes max
- Focus on teeth cleaning
- Open our eyes to stuff we don’t honestly use
- And without yanking stuff out
- Spot any we’re ready to let go
Keeping our eyes peeled for …
- Toothpaste we don’t like
- Old toothbrushes
- Kids toothpaste they’ve grown out of
- Electric toothbrush
- Toothbrush heads
- Mouth wash
- Dental floss
- Teeth whitening
- Interdental brushes
- Tooth brush chargers
I have NO idea. Do you?
Why we keep old toothbrushes.
BUT we do. Don’t we?
Even when they’re manky.
So let’s get rid of them.
Add them to the pile.
And clear as much as we can in our five minutes.
BECAUSE everything that goes.
Means more space.
To organise easily and look after.
The stuff we actually use.
Great job for everything you let go.
But for an extra nudge read on.
A Little Nudge
Tooth brush heads.
They’re good things to have.
IF we use them.
They’re easy things to HOARD.
Now in the past, hoarding was pretty powerful.
In bad weather and hard times.
It kept us alive.
These days NOT so much.
BUT because we’ve all got addicted to shopping.
It’s hard not to keep hoarding.
Especially IF we’re a COLLECTOR.
And little plastic consumables are our weak spot.
They’re almost like Kinder eggs for grown ups.
We get NO actual pleasure from them.
BUT we can’t stop buying.
So IF this is ringing true.
And you’re a secret dental supplies hoarder.
Don’t worry. You’re NOT alone.
But observe yourself.
Watch what you’re doing.
And set yourself a challenge.
To start a clutter free collection.
