The following is a guest post from regular contributor, Kristin at The Gold Project.
I am slowing getting my house put together and organized. The cabinet under my bathroom sink has been a mess for awhile. I know I just moved into my current home in January, but I had the same problem at every house before the current one. I would just place the items in the cabinet, which meant a lot of unused items would accumulate in the back of the cabinet. You would be shocked at the amount of items you can collect in the back of a bathroom cabinet. I loved it when I opened up one of the cabinet doors, reached for something, and a domino effect happened instantaneously. A great way to start my day!
So, I made my bathroom cabinet a priority this time around. And, it wasn’t a change that happened overnight. I would add organization elements, see how it worked for awhile, and change it again as needed. After five months, I think I have a system that works for me and my essentials.
Bathroom Cabinet Organization Essentials
1. Single Turntable
There is only so much room in my cabinet and everything that I need on a daily basis can’t sit at the front of the cabinet without some help. I purchased a small turntable that sits in the front of my cabinet and stores all of my daily beauty essentials. Now, I can get to everything easily and without making a large mess.
2. Organizer Rack or Shelf
For the items that I do not use everyday and that live in the back of my cabinet, I purchased a white shelf from Wal-Mart. You can find them in the kitchen department. This shelf makes all of the items in the back of my cabinet visible and keeps the domino effect from happening.
3. Large Bin
The first two items are located on the right side of my cabinet. On the left side, I have a large bin that is the size of the entire side. If I need something in the back of the cabinet, all I have to do is slide the entire bin out, grab what I need, and slide it back into place. Very easy and convenient.
I am on auto-delivery for my Philosophy Amazing Grace lotion, perfume, and shower gel. Sometimes, I haven’t used up one bottle before receiving another, so I place the new bottles in this bin. So, this bin mostly contains items that are new and waiting to be used.
And, a look at my entire bathroom cabinet…
This project didn’t cost a lot of money and is working out great. What are your bathroom cabinet essentials?

We recently made a life-changing move to Arkansas, so our new house is always under construction. I get excitement out of finding new creative, functional, and cute ways to organize things! I also enjoy writing and documenting life as it happens. So, I put these loves together and created The Gold Project. With the help of my husband, I am attempting to turn our house into a home.
