Three and a half years ago this is how I stored my bath toys:
And while that method worked for many years I soon realized that I was wasting a lot of vertical space in that area that I could be taking advantage of. This area is right next to my bath tub and for convenience I wanted to be able to store my own bath supplies there as well.
By now you know that inexpensive is the name of my game. I wanted something with a couple of shelves that would fit in this not very big space without breaking the bank. And for the low price of less than $20.00 my bathroom storage now looks like this (the painting of the walls was done at a different time).
I now have space for my candles, bubble baths and epsom salts and of course the bath toys in such a convenient location. Last year my girlfriend bought me a set of planters and one of them fit perfectly in the bottom space to house the bath toys. How’s that for clever containering? 🙂
The shelf is a Closet Maid and is available in places like Walmart or Target.
I don’t organize just for the sake of organizing (okay maybe I do but only when I’m bored, upset, mad, anxious, nervous, happy, sad or silly LOL) but what I especially love is streamlining my systems to save me time and free up space. I now have easy access to products I use nearly every day and my bathroom counter top remains uncluttered. Let me tell you, there’s nothing I love more than an uncluttered counter top. Ahhh such sweet serenity to me!
Think about products that you use nearly every single day. Are they located in prime real estate for no hassle access? Can you get creative and “make” space or even relocate other products that maybe you don’t use as regularly to free up space for the things you do?
Give it some thought, you never know when something so simple can change your life 🙂
