For this portion of my Organize Your Life series I want to talk about how you can organize your bathroom.
I am what you would call a product junkie. I have about 3 different brands of shampoo & conditioner in my shower at any given time. I use four products every morning to clean my teeth. Basically, I have a lot of “stuff” that could easily crowd my bathroom if I allowed it to. Luckily I have found ways to organize everything in a way that makes these products accessible when I need them but keeps them stored away so they’re not cluttering my sink.
Let’s start with the shower. I personally don’t organize the items in my shower in any specific way. This is probably the least organized spot in my bathroom. I do keep the products I tend to use the most closer to the front of my shower. If you don’t like having things strewn about your shower it is wise to invest in a caddy that goes over your shower head.
Next, it’s time to determine what items you use every morning to keep them within easy reach. I keep my toothpaste, toothbrush, moisturizer, floss and contact case & solution by my sink. Everything else I keep in my medicine cabinet or in small storage bins. I use one storage bin for all of my hair products/tools and keep this under my sink. I then use another storage bin to hold all of the miscellaneous products, such as extra razors, q-tips and sunless tanner.
A while ago I purchased a small storage structure to hold my makeup. I use the top drawer for face products, the middle one for eyes and the bottom one for lip products. I keep all of my everyday products in a makeup case that can easily be carried with me all day if I prefer.
Above is a photo of my storage shelf in my bathroom. The top shelf has one of the storage bins I was talking about with misc. items. The next shelf holds my makeup. The 3rd shelf down has my nail polish, makeup remover wipes, false nails, false eyelashes & random hair products. The next one has my makeup bag, makeup brushes & extra makeup bags. I keep a few magazines on hand just in case
This is the cute box that I store some of my nail polish in. I purchased it at Dollar General for only $2 so it was definitely a steal. I think it’s just so girly and fun!
Keeping your bathroom clean is probably the most important aspect to staying organized. I’m obsessed with Lysol Wipes. They’re just so easy to use and they get rid of everything. I keep those, a dustpan and small floor brush, Windex, toilet bowl cleaner, paper towels and shower cleaner underneath my sink at all times. I try to clean my bathroom at least once a week no matter how busy I am because there’s nothing I dislike more than a dirty sink top.
