I’ve been doing a lot of little organizing projects around my house lately. A half hour here or there, whenever I can fit it in. My bathroom cupboards have been driving me crazy lately so I put them on my list of things to tackle and got two of them done recently on two different days. One is our main bathroom and the other is my basement bathroom which my two teens share.
As you know I can’t stand space not being used to it’s fullest potential. With both bathrooms I felt like I needed to go more vertical and so in both cases I decided to add some plastic drawer units that I picked up at Walmart. They are super for organizing small odds and ends that would otherwise get buried in larger containers.
Here’s the before of our main bathroom. This bathroom stores a whole pile of miscellaneous supplies including first aid stuff, sunscreen and bug spray, extra travel toiletries and toothbrushes, etc. I also keep a set of cleaning supplies in each bathroom to make life easier.
Yep things had gotten a little out of hand as you can see. We couldn’t find anything anymore without doing some digging!
So I removed everything out of the space to start.
And then added some grippy liner to the bottom of the cabinet to make clean up easy. It also looks pretty but that’s never my motivation for an organized space.
I purchased the liner at Walmart and it’s not the adhesive kind which I can’t stand. This stuff has a grippy bottom so it still stays put but without the fight to get it in. It took all of two seconds to lay down, my kind of project! It’s also machine washable.
And here’s how the space turned out once I sorted and purged and added some new drawers. (It’s all part of the PROCESS!) You also see I use a wire shelf to create more space. I love wire shelving as you can see in this post.
These over the door holders I purchased at the dollar store. They are perfect for holding my most often used cleaners where I can easily reach them.
My children’s bathroom also got an overhaul. Most of what I pulled out of there was garbage because apparently teenagers don’t understand that an empty box should be put in recycling. Sheesh!
Here is the before:
and the after:
The cabinet door holder I used in this bathroom is acrylic and also from the dollar store. It’s not as sturdy as the first one but it’s still getting the job done :)
So those are a few projects I’ve been working on. You can also check out how I organize my ensuite bathroom cabinet here.
What organizing projects are you working on this week?
