Bathroom Cabinet Organization

This cabinet used to be organized, but then I stole the basket that was holding all this junk because it was the perfect size for our guest bathroom. And since people see our guest bathroom more than our master bathroom, my cabinet ended up looking like this.

My husband has his own cabinet which I hope to get my hands on soon!

The first step I take when organizing a space is to clear everything out and give the area a good cleaning. In the case, I placed everything on the countertop and wiped out the cabinet with a microfiber cloth.

Truth: I can be such a slob sometiems!

I found these containers at Dollar General for $1 a piece. 

 FYI, they had a ton of blue ones, but I had to go to two different stores to find enough of the green bins. I forgot to measure beforehand, but three columns ended up being the perfect fit.

 Here is the label for anyone who is interested in getting some. 

Also, some similar ones that I found on Amazon (click here) that had good reviews. They are clear and come in a package of 8 and are a great option if you aren't able to find these.

Next, I went through all of my stuff and got rid of anything I didn't need. Then I began filling up bins with similar items.

Here is a closer view of each bin.

The middle bin is where I am storing all my jewelry. I rarely wear any besides my engagement ring and wedding band and occasionally a James Avery necklace, but the jewelry I do own is stored in a tackle box. I used a command hook in the back of the bin to hang a couple of watches and a bracelet.

This setup is working perfectly for me. I love that each bin is open so I can just reach in and grab whatever I need. I store my travel bags behind the bins so that it isn't wasted space. 

Anyone else get organizational supplies from the dollar store? It's one of my favorite spots to look and I was pleasantly surprised to find these bins in such a cute color!

Hi Kristen,
I am all about organization too! I like the bins you incorporated in the large space under a cabinet. So much of that space is wasted without the use of the bins. I am on the way to the Dollar Store to pick up some bins for my bathroom. I am a new follower of your blog! I would love for you to visit me at Still Woods Farmhouse and follow my little blog. Can't wait to see your other ideas.
Blessings from Still Woods Farmhouse

Because of the current economic climate, many homeowners in Britain are now called upon to spend time working to meet the ends; often tired and stressed at the end of the day. As we all know, stress is a severe condition that can lead to standards that can make people extremely ill. This has led to a growing demand for solutions that will ultimately help people de-stress. 1800mm Bath has been created for this purpose with the combination of a steam shower.
