I use these Rubbermaid interlocking drawer organizers from The Container Store in all of my bathroom drawers. I always buy mine at The Container Store, but every once in a while I see them at Target. I love them for several reasons. I love that when they are put together they fill my drawers almost completely maximizing every ounce of space. I love the way they link together creating one complete unit full of lots of mini compartments. I love that they are cheap to buy so I can replace them if/when they start looking dirty. And I especially LOVE that I can create so many different configurations with them making them work for me and my specific needs. Want to see what I mean?
Top drawer is where I keep my make-up and hair brushes (nice and clean now!). Razors are in the back so that little fingers can’t reach them.
I have two of the mini organizers inside of a larger organizer to separate the girls elastics (because half of the time I end up doing their hair in my bathroom) and my beloved cherry ice chap stick – which I can’t live without and keep in stock at all times. I can’t find it anywhere I regularly shop so my mom buys it for me in Utah. Every time she comes to visit she brings me some to replenish my stash. Love my mom. Love cherry ice chap stick.
Second drawer holds other odds and ends. Toothbrushes, some hair accessories, Q tips, and shampoo samples (because I’m always trying to find my favorite). Yes I wear contacts and yes I realize that is an insane amount of extra contact containers. Ha! I get a new one every time I go to the eye doctor and I suppose I could get rid of a few of them. But I don’t. Because I have room for them and I love the color green. I also keep a sticky pad and a pen in this drawer because when I’m taking off my make-up at night I ALWAYS think of something I need to remember to do the next morning. It’s so handy having a notepad and pen near by to jot yourself a little note before bed.
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?
Have a great week everyone!
