Do you spend precious time in the morning looking for a lost tweezer or lipstick? Do you have two bottles of the same conditioner opened at the same time? Have you been out of tissues for weeks and just using bathroom tissue instead? Here are some quick ideas that will help you organize your bathroom.
To instantly transform a messy bathroom cabinet drawer to one that can is neat and organized, without spending hours organizing, simply corral everything with a Lazy Susan. Add the Lazy Susan to your cabinet. It is a round disc that can spin around. Stand everything up on the Lazy Susan, and it will all be within easy access.
Use kitchen drawer silverware organizer in your top bathroom cabinet drawer. Use it to organize anything that you use most frequently, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, etc. A second drawer can hold your makeup and other personal care items.
Take some time to de-clutter the items in your bathroom. The easiest way to do this is to take one section at at a time and empty the items from the cabinet. Take a look at everything you have. Do you really need that body scrub you opened and used once in the last year? In general, anything with a fragrance, such as perfume, body lotions and even scrubs, should be used within six months of being opened. Items with a pump dispenser so that the product doesn’t come in contact with skin (and bacteria) will last longer. Donate any items that are intact and unopened. A women’s or homeless shelter would be happy to have them.
Corral cotton swabs, cotton balls and cotton rounds in clear canisters on the counter. This way you can see exactly where everything is, while the canisters keep everything under control.
