7 Simple Storage Solutions That'll Sort Out Your Bathroom Without Costing A Fortune


There are far too many of us out there struggling to keep our lives organized. It's one of those things that probably shouldn't be so difficult, but I can't even count the amount of times I've been frustrated by losing something in a drawer full of stuff that shouldn't be there.

The simplest way to stay organized is by staying on top of it in the first place. Sure, it sounds easy in theory, but in practice it hasn't worked. But the reason it doesn't end up working for most of us is because we trust ourselves to just keep things tidy. That's not enough, we need help!

The best way to help yourself is by setting yourself up for success by finding storage solutions and organizational tricks that force you to keep things in their right place.

All of these will help you keep yourself organized and stress free in one of the most important rooms in your house.

1. Mason Jars

Simple, easy to clean, cost effective, and super cute looking, mason jars are an excellent storage trick for every room, especially your bathroom.

Need a place to store cotton balls? Mason jar works! Need a small container for hair elastics? Mason jar works! Need a place to keep all the attachments for your clippers? Toss em' in a mason jar!

They are honestly just the easiest way to sort out small objects. They come in so many different sizes, so you can always find the right height and width that you can easily tuck into your drawers.

Also, they look great on open shelves so it's not like you have to tuck everything away all the time. I use one in my bathroom to hold my toothbrush and toothpaste. It was so much cheaper than buying an actual toothbrush holder and it does the exact same job.

You can get twelve mason jars for less than $20, so you can store a lot of stuff for really cheap! Get your own here!

2. Lazy Susan

You see them in kitchens all the time, but it's time to grab one and bring it into the bathroom!

Just because the pictures always show them with food or spices on them doesn't mean you can't use them for all your hair care products, deodorants, or face creams.

They come in a bunch of different sizes so you'll be able to find something that is right for you that will help you take advantage of the little space you do have.

Whether you get a very simple one from the dollar store or one with edges to help you keep everything organized like this one, the fact is, it's an easy to execute solution that makes a world of difference. Get it here!

3. Hair Tool Storage

Anyone who owns a hairdryer knows that they are kind of a pain, right? The cord seems to always be in the way and the barrel of it always makes it impossible to store in the drawers.

Hair straighteners and curling irons are tricky as well, because as you collect more styling products your drawer space dwindles.

But all it takes is a little wire unit that hangs on your cabinet door and it'll solve your problems. It even has a spot where you can wrap your cord around it so it's not getting tangled!

They are super inexpensive, and you'll wonder how you managed without it for so long. Get it here!

4. Cutlery Organizers

Once again, just because you find it in the kitchen aisle doesn't mean that you have to keep it in the kitchen.

Cutlery organizers are super convenient for sorting out all the stuff in your drawers like makeup, makeup brushes, hair elastics, and really everything you have in there. A lot of them, including this one, are expandable so you can make it fit no matter the size of your drawers. Get it here!

5. Drawer Organizers

If you have a more limited space, you can get smaller separators that'll still help you tidy everything up, but won't take up all the space.

They come in all different sizes, so you can mix and match to design the perfect storage system. They are also easy to stack, and because of their low profile you can increase the amount of storage by an incredible amount. Find the perfect size for you here!

6. Outlet Shelf

It's a small thing that you probably don't notice until you buy one, but electric toothbrushes can take up a lot of room. Sure, they seem small, because all they need is their little charging station, but in reality, they seem to always be in the way.

Well, if you're going to have them near the plug anyways, why not get a little shelf that attaches directly to the outlet. It will be the perfect place to set up the little charging station, get yours here!

7. Thin Roll-Away Shelf

These are perfect for tucking in between your washer and dryer! You can keep your laundry detergent and dryer sheets out of the way. Get your own here!

Now you can get your bathroom organized and actually keep it that way!
