When I was younger I thought that organizing was super-overrated.
“Why would anyone want to be organized….when they could live like this,” I’d say to my piles of clothes draped over chairs in my room.
“I know right where everything is anyway,” I’d whisper to the closet floor.
“I’m organized in my mind,” I’d tell the stacks of papers on my desk.
I love organization.
Especially when it starts with 2017.
You, too? Oh good. 🙂
Here are some of my favorite bathroom organizing ideas.
1. Organize and decorate with your towels
You have towels. Why not let them do a little of the decorating work?
You can also organize towels in a vintage containers. I used an old locker basket on top of the cabinet to stack them for display.
2. Monogrammed totes
I had labels for the containers in the linen closet, but they’d always fall off because of the humidity in the space.
So I decided to use monogram totes like these (and they are so affordable) instead.
I chose a monogrammed letter for everything I wanted to organize in the space.
W for washcloths. A for accessories. S for soap.
And so on.
3. Create vertical organization
I made this display ladder last year to store items in the bathroom.
When you use the vertical space in your bathroom it takes up less room.
The ladder is perfect for storing extra hand soap and tiny felted succulents and a box to store extra hair ties.
Add a sprig of greenery in these measuring bottles (on sale right now) to freshen up the room.
(total aside: I decorated with the toilet paper, too. Doesn’t it look like art stacked in that basket?)
4. Organize the sink area
Hooks are your friend.
They make your towels look cute and keep the sink area a little cleaner.
I have one on either side of the sink.
(total aside: These towels are trying really hard to decorate, too.)
5. Get rid of extra things your bathroom picked up along the way
I found seven containers of almost empty this and near-to-being finished that in the closet.
I cleaned every bit of all those empty containers out, then I stocked up on pretty new hand wash to go with my new towels.
This is what the bathroom looks like now.
My towels are happy.
And I have a few words for that younger self.
You know….the one who was so dismissive of organizing?
Bless your heart.
PS I think my bathroom is southern. 🙂
