Bathroom Organization: Drawers

The bathroom seems to be the one place in our house that stays extra messy! This is probably due to the fact that it's where I get ready in the morning and more times than not I'm running a little late. Items usually get left on the counter and then when I'm trying to clean up in a hurry, it all gets thrown back into a drawer and eventually ends up looking like this.


I know I am more likely to keep things organized if everything has it's own place to live, but I have been putting off buying containers because the ones I like are too darn expensive. That is until I spotted some simple white drawer organizers in various sizes at Dollar Tree. I configured an arrangement that would work for my drawers right there on the floor at the store. I only needed 9 so this project came in right under ten bucks!

The purple and orange bag came in my May Birchbox and is perfect for holding my makeup. Everything is in one spot when I'm getting ready and it's easy to grab if we take a weekend trip or go on vacation.

These reusable zip ties keep my blow dryer and straightener cords from getting tangled. I hurriedly added these to my Amazon cart to get my order over $25 so I could get free shipping and I am so happy I did. I am looking forward to finding other uses for these puppies besides cords.

I am loving the outcome of this project and the fact that it still looks exactly the same after a week makes me love it that much more! Any super star bathroom organization tips you want to share with me?
