How I Organize My Bathroom
Okay, so there’s not much to share here but I figured I’d do it anyways. Just in case it might be helpful to someone. I know my bathroom isn’t your average bathroom and most of this stuff is probably going to be totally un-relatable. My bathroom is missing some essential necessities but, I’m glad to have a toilet and shower and washer and make the best of what I have for now. Hopefully in the future we will upgrade and when that day comes I will definitely be sharing the whole 5 yards with you 😁! Okay than, let’s do this!
Just a fair warning! It’s not a pretty sight. There’s a green sink and green walls to match it 😂! I have big plans for this bathroom and can’t wait to start. The wallpaper walls you see were flowers I hand painted while I was into shabby chic decor. I’m so over the green. Honestly, I look back at it and wonder what was I thinking when I painted it 🙈! OH😑 and no under the sink cabinet. I use a small curtain to make it look somewhat decent. It’s just an empty space with a visible water heater inside 🙈 I can’t make a legit cabinet even if I wanted to. This whole house isn’t a legal structure. It’s half home half mobile home that someone pretty much slapped together. Like a DIY type house! LOL 😅 not a good DIY though! Whatever I have planned for this house will be temporary and probably not up to code😬. The floor is cracked and soaks up water.. 😏 which is something I’m trying to fix as well. I don’t want to remove the old floor because it’s too much work for something temporary and at the same time I don’t want it to look crappy. LOL😂! There’s also the mold to consider. Oh gosh. We’ll see. It is what it is and I’m happy to have a roof over our heads.
Yes I know the bathroom door is in major need of a paint job. It’s been on my to-do least for ages. I’m getting their😂!
Okay here it is 🙈! This is so out of my comfort zone!
I have this shelf above my washer where I have a row of baskets and store all my bathroom goodies.
Bathroom Organization in Baskets
Here’s how I organize all my make up. I purchased some small plastic bins at the dollar store and like to organize by categories. If categories don’t fit I’ll usually do shape and size.
Here’s how I categorized it in each separate bin.
- serums and eye creams
- eyeliners, pencils, concealers, + miscellaneous
These little containers are sold at the dollar store in a set of 4 I believe. 😀
In this second basket I keep all my body + hair care. I also got these little containers at the dollar store and I think they came in a pack of 6. They’re the perfect size for lotions and hairsprays! Just what I was looking for.
Next is my hair styling basket. I keep my brushes on one end. My hair pins and hair ties in little cups and all my curling and styling on the other end. You probably already know where I got those plastic bins.
OH GOSH!! I’m cringing totally cringing 🙈🙈🙈! I was super duper tempted not to share this basket! LOL😅 If this is too much info just scroll down! 😬I apologize! I keep all my feminine hygiene products with bath salts in one basket. I like to stick to storing stuff I use less in the same basket.
Okay and last but not least is my big plastic bin under the sink. ( stored behind the curtain) I like to keep all my laundry detergents in here. I do not keep my cleaning supplies in here because it’s hard to pull out the bin each time so instead I store my cleaning supplies under the sink in the kitchen. 😀
Here’s a quick video –
That’s it! Not sure if this was at all helpful but, I promised I’d share my organizing challenge and I wasn’t about to flake out on it! 😀
How do you like to keep your bathroom organized? Do you organize by categories as well?
