Sharing my bathroom drawers today! The master bathroom is one place that can get unorganized in a hurry, isn't it!? I've had my bathroom drawers organized the same way for the past ten years and I LOVE my system. Love it. Every once in a while I clean the drawers out and maybe move things around a bit, but the system stays the same! So I present to you my beloved system... just in case you want to make it your system too.
Here are just a few ways you can organize these fabulous compartments! If I didn't have three little people who constantly need my attention I could have created and photographed different configurations all. day. long. Aren't they fun!? Mix and match - match and mix. Everything links together. So many different sizes. So many ways to organize your things. I can't exactly explain the happiness I feel when I look at the picture above. Like everything is right with the world. :)
I keep our most used bathroom items in a cupboard on the wall (deodorant, hairspray, etc.), but everything else I use daily goes in my bathroom drawers. Here's how I have my organized configurations configurized. (I'm so happy about this post that I'm making up my own words. Although Kenny would tell you that I tend to make up my own words regardless of my mood.)
For my third drawer I use two of the largest organizers. This drawer holds my headbands and is also a random catch all of for extra stuff.
My fourth drawer contents tend to change. This is where I like to keep my curling irons and blow dryer. But when I have a child under age 3 in the house my fourth drawer looks like this...
The idea is that while I'm getting ready in the morning Kole has his own stuff to play with in the bathroom (and curling irons are out of reach). Of course he'd much rather reach into my drawers to play. And who could blame him? Why play with a train when dental floss is so incredibly interesting?
In the mood to organize your bathroom drawers? Just a few tips...
1- Dump out all of your drawers (I like to grab a towel or sheet to dump everything on).
2 - Get rid of anything you aren't using. (If it's a maybe I might use this someday item... toss it!)
3- Assess what you have and put things in categories.
4- Buy/find/create organizers that maximize your space and work for your needs.
5- If your organizers don't fit your exact drawer dimensions and you want to keep them from sliding around in the drawer, use Velcro to hold them down OR stuff a few paper towels in the back of the drawer. Both methods have worked for me!
6- And if your organized drawers make you so happy that you want to take pictures of them to share with other people who love to organize as much as you do?
Then slap your hair back in a pony tail, stand on a chair (to get the best view possible), and have at it!
Have a great week everyone!
