bathroom organization tips

If you have been hangin’ with me for awhile, you know I am into cheap and simple organization. I thrive on organization especially since we lost over 1000 square feet in our new home when we moved.

Ouch! I had to figure something to organize the bathroom that is used by 5 of us. Something simple, so the rest of the gang wouldn’t ask me where something is 24/7.

Yes, it’s a little pet peeve of mine, when someone asks me a silly question where something is when it’s so obvious to me. I believe this is a man’s favorite way to annoy a busy wife besides leaving the toilet seat up in the middle of the night.

Easy Steps to Bathroom Organization Tips

  • Discard any expired products or stuff that you don’t use in your big garbage bag
  • Decide on what you are going to name your shoeboxes (think from a man’s point of view)
  • Place marked labels on shoe boxes
  • Put all shoe boxes on floor
  • Start filling your shoe boxes with the appropriate stuff
  • Organize the shoe boxes after all the products are in the individual boxes
  • Place organized shoe boxes in closet or cabinets
  • Have a quick in service with family about where everything is located

Here’s My Labels, but Label Yours How You Wish

  • Nails – nail polish, nail clippers, etc
  • Tummy – anything that has to do with stomach issues
  • Girl Stuff – tampons, pads, etc
  • James – all my hubbie’s stuff including his vitamin that he swears he going to start taking
  • Extra Essentials – toothpaste, soap, etc.
  • Topicals – bandaids, anything topical related
  • ENT – anything to do with ears, nose, and throat
  • Bows – all my daughters hair goodies
  • Stuff – powder, mouthwash, and things we don’t use everyday

So simple, huh?

This easy system has been working for us for a month and I have not received one silly question about where something is.
