The bathroom surely gets a workout each day.
Get it organized with this easy-to-follow process.
SET UP STORAGE
Some things are shared items, while others may belong to a specific person. Take into account the available space in your medicine cabinet, vanity drawers, and under-sink storage, as well as in your linen closet. (If you’re lucky enough to have one, see tips in the following article!) If you need to add storage, consider installing shelving on a wall or a free-standing cabinet above the toilet.
As you place items, group them into their categories, and/or assign a specific place for each member of the household. For example, each person could have one drawer, one basket on the shelf, or one toteable caddy. If you’re grouping by category, you could use baskets, bins, or specific areas on your shelves for easy locating. Be sure to label so that everyone knows how to find necessities.
Add hooks behind the door or on the wall so everyone has a place to hang towels. And while you’re at it, color code the towels and toothbrushes by family member so there’s no “ownership confusion.”
If you purchase paper products in bulk, store the excess in an out-of-the-way area, such as the laundry room or hall closet, keeping only a week’s worth in the bathroom. Replenish as needed.
