Organizing Your Bathroom with Desk Organizers
My first projects in my house were the kitchen and my craft room, so the bathrooms were sorely neglected. When I couldn't get the top drawer open in the bathroom, I knew the bathroom needed to come next in organization schedule.
The first thing you need to do is dump your drawer and wipe it down. Then go through each item and decide what really needs to be in this drawer. In our house we keep shared items/my husband's items in one drawer and then I have a separate drawer for my hair and beauty products. For instance if an item is solely mine, it needs to go in a different drawer, freeing up space in this one.
In my organizer:
Contacts- My husband and I both wear contacts, so I keep a few spares here.
Spare Razor Heads- This might not be a good place to store these if you have curious kids
Chapsticks- We have a rule in our house. These two chap sticks stay here so we can find them.
Tweezers/Nail Clippers- I love having these in the same easy to find place every time I need them.
I keep the toothpaste behind the organizer and then I use the rest of the drawer to keep my husband's toiletries.
This system has been in place at our house for a few weeks and I have been surprised how well it has worked. Everything has been put back where it goes regularly, which makes this a success in my book!
