I have been on a mission over the past few weeks to get my house in order before the holidays. I started by tackling paper clutter in the kitchen and home office. This week, I’ve moved on to the bathroom!
Yes, that was my bathroom cabinet before I did anything — piled over two feet high with toiletries, extra toilet paper, and who knows what else that you can’t even see! This was the status of the bathroom drawers (I cringe just looking at this photo now):
I suppose things had gotten this out of hand because I figured that it would take hours of work and I would have to spend a lot of money on shelving to organize properly. However that wasn’t the case at all! Everything I used for this bathroom organization project I found at Walmart for under $10!
I started by taking every single item out of both drawers and the cabinet. I evaluated what was old, spoiled, spilt, or never going to be used and tossed those things into a big trash bag. Be honest — if that lotion smells amazing but makes your skin itch, pitch it!
After wiping down the insides of the drawers, I placed two plastic baskets in each one (they were a perfect fit!) Each basket contains a certain group of items: first aid, dental care, travel-sized toiletries, etc. Easy! Just look at the difference:
For the cabinet, I found this small “Lazy Susan” (in the kitchen section at Walmart), which keeps all of our extra toiletries readily accessible. It spins, so nothing gets buried in the back of the cabinet!
Now there’s plenty of room to store our extra toilet paper — we love Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong Toilet Paper because it is both soft AND strong! It’s designed to prevent tearing, which is especially nice when you have kids learning to do the bathroom business on their own. It’s also sewer and septic safe, just in case they use a little too much!
I’m so glad I finally got my bathroom in order — it was so much easier than I thought with these simple bathroom organization hacks! You can do this yourself in about 30 minutes and for under $10 with supplies from Walmart. While you’re there, make sure to stock up on Quilted Northern Soft & Strong (you can never have too much toilet paper!) because you will have plenty of room in your cabinets now!
Do you have a clever place to keep your extra TP so it’s there when you need it? Tell me about it! I love to hear all of your creative ideas!
