If you read my post on two reasons you struggle with staying organized, you saw the struggle I had for 15 years under my bathrooms sinks. Sad part is, I didn’t even realize I was struggling until I found the way that works best for me. Ready to get your bathroom organization under control and stop being afraid to open your bathroom cabinets?
For 15 years I used an organizing system for our bathroom cabinets that I didn’t realize wasn’t working for me. The system I used to organize was the plastic shoe boxes, I even labeled every one of them. And, that may be ideal for someone else, not me. The problem was, it wasn’t easy for me. When I needed something out of a shoe box that was labeled so pretty, all the other shoe boxes on top would fall. When I would attempt to put something back, instead of messing with all those boxes, I would simply put the item in front of the box instead of inside of the box. Well after a while, the whole bathroom cabinet looked like a kill zone of bathroom items. It must not have bothered me too much considering I kept that system for far too long.
Many years, and of course, the invention of Pinterest later, I have found an organizing system for our bathroom cabinets that works for me (and everyone in our house). I have been using this system for over two years now and couldn’t be happier.
The best part is, when we open the cabinet, everything is in its place.
Here is the bathroom organization system I use:
The plastic container with pull out drawers. There is a three drawer system that works really well for what we are trying to accomplish. I stacked two plastic containers on top of one another. Having every drawer be a different category, I labeled every drawer using my handy labeler. For example, shampoo, shower gel, dental, hair supplies, travel size items, dog items, etc.
I can’t believe the struggle I had without this system. Now, when an item is needed I open the cabinet, open a labeled drawer, and not one thing falls out or over. And, I smile every time.
What about you, does your bathroom cabinets need some attention? Or, do you smile when you open the doors? If you aren’t smiling, maybe it’s time to reconsider the way your are organizing your bathroom. I know I am sure glad I did.
