1. Hang metal baskets on the wall for appliances.

Using your wall space keeps counters cleaner. Using metal baskets or containers means you don’t have to worry about putting up a straightener that’s still a little warm. I think I picked up this one for a few bucks the last time I went to Ikea. You can easily find metal containers at the dollar store. They can be used for just about anything. Appliances, brushes, etc.

2. Stop tripping over the potty seat.

Bless their tiny little behinds. I thought I was going to lose my mind if I tripped over the potty seat in the floor one more time. Screw a coat hook into the wall and hang up the potty seat. We hung ours low and right beside the toilet.

3. Over the door organizers are your friend.

Use an over the door organizer to free up space. Store everything from hair accessories to make up to small bath toys.

4. The mirror is fair game.

Dry erase markers work wonderfully on mirrors! You can add some pizzazz and color to your bathroom by drawing “decorations”. You can also use the space to leave reminders or lists for the kids. A popular one around here is a checklist on the mirror that says, “Did you wash your hands, wash your face, brush your teeth, brush your hair?”

5. Pajama storage – My favorite!

My godmother used to keep her daughter’s pajamas in a big drawer in their bathroom. It’s genius when you think about it. No more digging for pajamas out of the shower or wet, cold kids running from the bathroom to their bedroom (where somewhere along the way mine would get distracted by something shiny). We used one screw to hang a wicker basket to the wall. Each bundle has a pajama top, bottom and undies folded, rolled and secured with a hair tie.

The kid “explains” pajama storage –

Bonus Tip:

Laundry baskets make excellent ‘bath seats’ for babies who can sit up well by themselves. Not only does it limit where all they can move around too, it keeps their bath toys close to them.
