Cooktop Cove: 8 dollar-store hacks to help you organize your bathroom
An organized bathroom saves you time and money. It means no more digging through cabinets to find the one thing you need when you are in a rush. No more buying an extra because you didn't remember you already have three under the sink. And no more wishing you had more space in your jumble of beauty products.
All you need is one afternoon of free time and some inexpensive items to create an organized bathroom. These bathroom organizational ideas will transform your bathroom into a nicely organized space.
1. Use dollar-store baskets (h/t One Crazy House)
The dollar store is an excellent source for cheap organizing items. Plastic baskets combine with Command hooks to use vertical space. You can use other containers and baskets in creative ways to organize all your bathroom items. If you can't find a color you like, spray-paint them.
2. Use the space above your toilet (h/t Rise and Renovate)
The space above the toilet is often wasted. Look for cute shelves at a craft store, many of which offer coupons online and in their apps. The baskets are perfect for holding extra hand towels, soaps and other bathroom items.
3. Keep toothbrushes neat (h/t Little Penelope Lane)
A kitchen utensil organizer stores your toothbrushes and other dental care items neatly away in a bathroom drawer. Each toothbrush stays confined to its own space, preventing germs from spreading. Pulling it out for a quick run through the dishwasher on a regular basis is all you need to keep it nice and clean.
4. Give things a spin
When you dig through the mess in your cabinet, you tend to knock things over and make a mess. The solution: Use a lazy Susan for easy access. Instead of digging through, you simply spin it around to find what you need. As a bonus, it is also easy to wipe clean in case something spills.
5. Use Command hooks to organize tools
Use the space inside a cabinet to hang up your hair styling tools. Many heat tools feature hooks on their bases for just this purpose. With this method, there's no more dealing with tangled cords. Everything stays organized and easy to retrieve.
6. Save glass jars to hold small items (h/t Classy Clutter)
Mason jars are a cute way to store the small items you use on a daily basis. Glass jars keep cotton swabs, cotton pads, flossers and other items neat and accessible. Don't feel the need to purchase jars. Spaghetti sauce, pickles and other food products often come in attractive jars you can reuse.
7. Add storage behind your bathroom door (h/t Jenna Burger)
The area behind your bathroom door is just wasted space — unless you use this creative idea to reclaim it. Hang towel racks on the back of your bathroom door. If the door is not solid, make sure you use the proper anchoring to hold the racks securely without destroying it.
