Do you ever try to get dressed, brush your hair and teeth in record time and end up knocking stuff off your crowded counter? Or hunting for that one mascara? And when you finally have a moment to yourself, all you want to do is relax in a nice, clean bathroom? But it’s a mess?

Good news! I have some tips to tidy everything up and get your bathroom less “oh my” and more relaxing oasis. Let’s get your bathroom organized, so that you can actually find what you’re looking for (and maybe even have some room to breathe).

Messy Bathroom Counter

Throw Everything Away! Ok, not everything.

Get rid of everything you don’t need. This may seem like a daunting task, but it’s really not as bad as it seems. Go through your products one by one and ask yourself the following questions:

1) Do I use this product often?

2) Does this product work well?

3) Is this product essential?

If the answer to any of these questions is no, then get rid of it. You’ll be surprised at how much extra space you’ll free up in the process.

Smart Bathroom Organization

The bathroom is a place of leisure and luxury, but it can also be one of the most stressful rooms in your home. There are few spaces that require as much care when organizing them for efficiency or style; thankfully we’ve found some creative solutions to stay organized and make good use out of our bathrooms, especially the small ones.

Storage Solutions for the Bathroom

A great way to keep your bathroom organized is by using organizers. This can be anything from baskets and bins to caddies and shelves. By using organizers, you’ll be able to declutter your space and make it easier to find things.

Take Your Bathroom Organization Up, Up, and Away!

Hanging baskets – Not like a basket of ferns on the front porch. Hanging baskets on your wall are great for storing items up, up, and away. You can even use small, wire wastebaskets and attach them to the wall.

Over the door shoe holders – The pockets on them are fantastic for holding brushes, bottles of hair products, etc. I would recommend to keep the stuff you use every day, all the time on or closer to the counter. But we all have stuff we use and want to be able to find while NOT taking up all the counter space.

Shelves – We all have that weird wall space above the toilet. And probably in another space or two in the bathroom. Pop a shelf on the wall. You can place rolled towels on them, extra TP, a small basket with extra hair ties. Another fun and practical idea for organizing your small products is to pick up a spice rack and hang it on the wall.

Hooks – Whether it’s over the door or on the wall, keep your bath towels close and easy to grab on some hooks.

Using shelves, hooks, and baskets to store products and accessories that would otherwise take up valuable countertop or floor space. This will free up space so that you can actually move around in your bathroom without bumping into things every five seconds.

Speaking of hooks! One last bonus tip: If you have a little one who uses a potty seat that goes on and off to the toilet seat, put a hook next to the toilet to hang it on and keep it off the floor.

Organize Your Counters

What’s your favorite way to store stuff on the bathroom counter? For me, it has always been a tiered tray. They’re so cute and they double as an added storage space for all of those little items we accumulate throughout our daily lives! But recently I’ve also found “desk organizers” that work beautifully on a counter.

Mason jars are excellent for cute storage. Really any type of cute jar will work beautifully. They’re perfect for storing small items like q-tips, makeup sponges and brushes, cotton balls, band-aids and more. Stock up at your local thrift store or dollar store. For an extra bit of fun, you can always paint them or even just tie a small ribbon around them. For the items you don’t use a ton, pop those mason jars on your new shelves.

If you have drawers, use drawer dividers to help actually be able to find what you have. One kind that is easy to find is the same ones usually used for utensils. You can also find these at thrift stores and dollar stores.

Tackle Your Tub and Shower Area

It’s no secret that we all love to take a nice long bath or shower. Keeping your tub and shower area clean on a regular basis will save you time and frustration.

Shower caddies are a must-have for any bathroom. They’re the perfect size and can be easily attached to your shower head or stuck onto walls with adhesive so you don’t have trouble finding what’s necessary in an emergency! Ok, so not an emergency. But you can grab things easily and keep your tub sides from being a pile of bottles that get knocked out.

Not a fan of shower caddies? Another option is to hang your products on the shower curtain rings. Mind. Blown.

If you share a bathroom with your kids, mount a mesh toy bag above the tub so the toys can stay out of the way when not in use. Mesh is important so the water drains from the toys. Extra tip: Keep it down to just two or three toys at a time and rotate them.

So, there you have it! Some easy tips for getting your bathroom organized, even if you’re a busy mom. Just using some vertical space, baskets, and mason jars can make a big difference. And don’t forget to purge regularly to avoid excess clutter. By following these tips, you can have a bathroom that’s both organized and functional.
