Getting Organized Series: In the Bathroom

Bathrooms can present many challenges for organization. Try these tips courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens for Restoring Order to your Bathroom!
Limit medicine cabinets to items you use every day. Keep medications in original containers on a high shelf or other safe spot, particularly if there are small children in the house. Store remaining items one layer deep, doubling space with acrylic ledges. Rest toiletries in caddies or trays on the vanity so you can lift them for quick cleaning or tuck them away when guests visit.

If your bath lacks a closet, repurpose a cabinet or dresser to keep extra linens and supplies on hand. Bath oils and bulk items, such as cotton swabs, look pretty in glass jars -- plus its easy to know when to restock.

Be sure to Organize Drawers! Grooming is so much more enjoyable when drawers are clean and clutter-free. Use removable organizers in vanity drawers to keep things from migrating. Once a month, remove all toiletries and thoroughly wash containers, trays, drawers, and drawer liners. Remember to toss expired products and transfer unused or out-of-season items to less prominent locations, such as under the sink.

Remember, the secret to organizing the bathroom is to be diligent and ruthless about getting rid of what you don't need. Get rid of the stuff you rarely or never use and keep what you use on a daily basis.
