Recently, I asked a lot of people which room in the house is hardest for them to keep organized. Everyone’s answer was the same… the bathroom! I honestly believe this is because we live in a world of creams, gels, and sprays for every hair and skin problem known to man. So, my first piece of advice is to clean out your cabinet and drawers and simplify your beauty routine. Once you have thrown out anything that is expired, or doesn’t work for you, it’s time to organize.
I absolutely love these storage bins from Target. I discovered them a little over a year ago and I think they are fabulous. I have an average size bathroom cabinet and six of them fit in there perfectly. The best part is they are very inexpensive!
The thing that is great about using these bins and this storage system, is that you can group like items together. As I mentioned before, I have six bins and they each hold one of these categories of items: make-up; facial products; body products; hair products; travel products; and miscellaneous.
This system is a great way to know exactly where an item is when you need it. If you are ready to put on make-up, just pull out the make-up bin. When it’s time to go to bed and you want to do your nightly skincare routine, pull out the bin that holds your facial products. Once you use an item, put it back in the bin where it belongs. This system has been working for me for the last year and I highly recommend giving it a try!
Another positive to using a system like this is it makes it easy when you do your shopping. When making your shopping list, you can easily see what you have, or what you don’t have.
If you try this system, or another one like it, I would love to hear what you think. I would LOVE to connect with you over on Instagram and Facebook. Just search Heather Loves Home! I hope you enjoyed these simple bathroom organizing ideas!
