These baskets are above my toilet and they were holding various things. These were working pretty good.
See the plastic boxes? It's trying to be organized....but is just not making the grade.
This was on the back of my guest bathroom door. the good thing about this system was you could see everything easily. But, I really don't like everything to be out in the open. It feels cluttered to me. Not to mention...I hang my robes on the back of my door....so this could not go there.
Here is how it turned out.......
I moved the towels up to these shelves....and you see the tp in one of the baskets. The other basket will hold our hand towels.
The baskets on the top shelf have my stuff in them because the big girls don't need to reach them....make-up, feminine stuff and the baby's hair bows.
I did the girl's hair stuff the same way. I sorted it all out into like stuff and then labeled each bag accordingly. I put the stuff they barely use on the bottom and the most used stuff on top. The plan is to just throw the stuff in the bin as they are done with it and then once a week (or so) I will put everything in it's place. (We've been doing this for a few weeks and it's working out great!)
I got this idea from the Organizing Junkie.
It has helped to get the toothbrushes off the counter! YAY!
Our hairbrushes have been in this drawer for a while.....no need to fix what is not broken!
These are hung with command hooks. I love those things! This way their towels and robes are easy access without having to commit to the height of the hooks. As they grow, I will just move the removable hooks up!
I got rid of a lot of stuff and I was able to get everything else under the counter! These boxes and shelves have my stockpile stuff in/on them. This is stuff that we don't need to get to every day, so they are in the back.
This is my nail and pedicure tub. The outer tub is what I soak my feet in and the smaller basket holds all of our nail stuff. This makes it easy to grab and head to the couch to pamper my feet while I watch TV. Does not happen often....but good to know it's there if I want it!
These bins are labeled Daddy, Girls Hair Stuff, Blow Dryer and Mommy's stuff. They hold all the things we use everyday, so they are at the front of the cabinet. It may seem funny to label them Mommy and Daddy instead of our names, but I did that so the kids could read them when I tell them where something is. Thought it would sound funny to say, "Go get it from Joyce's stuff;)" Yes, we have to bend down now and pull out the bin each day....or just grab what we need out of it......but the result is soooooo worth it.......
Clear counter tops! Aren't they pretty! (That basket holds wash clothes. I wanted them where the girls could reach them.)
I am thrilled with my results...and so far this system has worked for us for about 3 weeks....that is a good sign that it will work long term. So, it looks like I can fit 6 people in a small master bathroom! One other thing I am so thankful for is that I did have not buy anything for this redo! As much as I'd love to go buy all new bins and boxes in coordinating colors and make under my cabinets as pretty as I can...... right now, I have a very small budget....like $0 for new projects. So it is a huge blessing to have re-organized this room without spending a dime!
What do you think? See anywhere I could improve my system? I would love to hear it....leave a comment and let me know! Thanks!
