Tidy Up! Bathroom Organizing Ideas You Can Use Right Now

Here's how to organize makeup, toiletries, towels and more -- in style!

The bathroom can be a neglected cave filled with empty shampoo bottles, toilet paper wrappers and drawers stuffed with random items. Organize your bathroom without spending much money or time by taking on these five categories and accompanying blogger tips.



I Heart Organizing

There's no need to spend big bucks for a professional makeup organizing caddy. Take a page from I Heart Organizing's attractive, uncluttered and budget-friendly solution: Use a set of stacking drawers available from office-supply stores, and line each shelf with pretty boxes or paper for additional dividers. 

Styling Products

A Thoughtful Place

Keep the bathroom as tidy as can be -- and make your morning search for what you need way easier -- by hanging a shoe organizer under the sink, and filling each slot with a single product. It will help you grab just what you need at a glance, and keep the clutter from accumulating. See more details at A Thoughtful Place

Toiletry Samples

A Beautiful Mess

As keep-all storage for perfume bottles, photo frames -- and just about anything else -- try hanging a couple affordable wire crates on an available wall. Mandi Johnson has the tutorial for A Beautiful Mess

Countertop Essentials

The Nester

It's efficient to keep the items we access daily on the countertop. But eventually, those items tend to add up to unattractive clutter. Keep the whole assembly tidy by collecting items thoughtfully on a tiered dessert server. At Blissfully Domestic, The Nester shows off a well-rendered example. 


Shampoo and Conditioner

Keep Calm and Decorate

Keep the look of your shower way tidier and more organized by ditching those unmatched shampoo and conditioner bottles, and instead pouring the contents into a set of matching bottles that you can reuse time after time. Get the easy DIY at Keep Calm and Decorate.
