Organizing your bathroom

I originally shared this post over at Limited Space Organizing, but I'm just so happy with my bathroom organization that I had to share it here! Yes, I think organizing is cool. If you think that's weird then you should probably just stop reading. I already shared with you how I made the neato-o labels you're about to see, so if you like them, head over here

Not only do I love for things to be organized, but I also love for them to be pretty to the eyes and cheap to the budget. Which is why I am proud of how I've arranged our small bathroom in our one-bedroom apartment. 

Between my husband and I we have a lot of stuff. Okay, yes, most of it is probably mine. But I needed to find a way to organize our things not only so that everything has it's 'own place', but also so that it's easy for both of us to maintain. It doesn't do any good if you spend hours organizing, only to have to redo it 3 weeks later. Here is what I love about our bathroom organization:

1. Labels - pretty and obvious. I love how they look and my hubs loves that he knows exactly where to find something or where to put it back. Head over here to see how I made them.

2. The things we use on a daily basis are in the front. The things we rarely use, i.e. first aid kit, extra shampoo, extra washcloths, are in the back or on the bottom shelf.

3. Hooks in the shower.


4. All materials are multi-purpose. The crates and shelves can be used in a bathroom, linen closet, storage room, kitchen, or even bedroom closet. If you're like me and like to change around your storage/organization every so often, then having items like these that can be used in so many different ways are extremely practical.

5. I used office organizers in the bathroom! If you're trying to organize your bathroom, don't limit yourself to the bathroom section in Target. Look in all sections - who knows what idea you might come up with.

My total cost: about 5 dollars for this project! This is because I only had to buy the supplies to make the labels and only used a small portion of the labeling supplies. Often times, an area can be organized just by making use of things you have lying around. I happened to already have extra crates and shelves that were not being used so I didn't need to buy those. However, they can normally be found for around $5.00 each on average. {similar: here} Totally reasonable.

I love it. I love that I know where to find things. I love that Parks knows where to put things after he uses them. Fun labels make me happy. Do you love the way you've organized your bathroom or another space of your place?
