Making it All Fit
Bathrooms are probably the easiest place to organize if you’re comparing them to mounds of paper or closets full of clothes. The contents are pretty cut and dry and the storage options or usually very black and white. You don’t have to come up with something clever or out of the ordinary. Simple tips will get you started out on the right foot.
1. Don’t waste space on expired items, hair products you never intend to you, and lotions whose smell has turned because they’re so old. Clear them out.
2. Use every square inch. That may involve buying extra shelving, stackable drawers or stackable containers. Either way you look at it, if you have open air space, you have space to be captured.
3. Drawer organizers are probably the only must have items you should purchase if your budget is very small. They make a huge difference and help you get out the door fast each morning.
4. If you don’t travel each week, don’t store travel size items in the bathroom. There’s no need to have that stuff close buy if you’re not reaching into using the items weekly. Better yet, don’t bring samples home from hotels. Use up what you have first.
5. Label, label, label. I probably write this so often that you’re sick of hearing it if you read my blog regularly. This is super important in a bathroom or linen closet setting where you’ll find categories of small items.
6. Do separate out familiy members personal hygiene products if you have teenagers or college kids. If they are willing to carry a tote or caddy back and forth to their room, this will help in small bathroom situations. If you’re blessed with a lot of cabinet space assign one drawer per kid.
