This has been an issue for us, especially as our family is growing and we have a small amount of space to work with. Bathroom items for a WOMAN can take over a bathroom. Right ladies? LOL
We have lotions, make-up, hair accessories, nail polish, and the list goes on! And how about the men – they have STUFF too! What can be done with all of it if you don’t have the space to store it and keep it organized? I will be the first one to tell you that keeping it displayed on the counter is NOT a good choice. Trust me, I used to do it. My mom would come and visit and always comment on the fact that there wasn’t any space at the sink. So, I had to get my act together and come up with a plan.
In this video (which if you are a subscriber you have to click on the post title to go to my site and view the video)…. OK, so in this video, I share a few simple organizing tips that helps me to stay on top of all the bathroom STUFF.
Do you have a messy bathroom?
What do you do to keep all your bathroom STUFF organized?

Dawn, I can see that you have a tiny bathroom and this shelving worked for you, but I’d be agonizing over the possibility of having stuff fall in the toilet! Are all of you real good at keeping the lid down? That would not happen here I don’t think…so stuff would get knocked, bumped right over into the toilet…:( Yuck. Has it ever happened?
Not much actually. We keep the toilet seat down. That shelf is really MY shelf and I mostly utilize it after I shower and I make sure the seat is closed in case anything falls. But in the 5 years I have been living here, I have have only had things fall in the toilet a couple times. I have to put up with a few accidents I suppose in order to stay organized. There is nowhere else I can put the shelf unfortunately. I appreciate your comment.

This is such a great idea. I have a like a huge jewlery box (I think that’s what it is) that I got from walmart to put my stuff in. Even with it open my bathroom still looks organized.

Love the organization tips regarding the hair clips! I have use that one. I have a similar setup to yours with shelves over the toilet. I use lots of baskets from Michaels that I buy at 1/2 price sales to keep makeup, hair brushes and hair care products in. That keeps the area from looking too cluttered.

The shelf idea is great! I actually have one in our toilet room off of the bathroom that I have only been using to store magazines & toilet paper. However, I see myself utilizing the shelves/space more efficiently! 😀 The drawers for the hair clips & ties is great!! & also baskets (that the above poster mentioned) …. Great!! Tips! Thanks for sharing!
