Cute Bins Will Help You Organize a Bathroom Linen Closet

3 Materials
1 Hour

About a year ago I was working on decluttering the house and came across a brilliant idea for organizing our linen closet.

Halos (the oranges company) a business partner with me for a while, would send me these super nice sturdy bins, with various gifts and crafting supplies in each one.

I kept the bins, and got the great idea of using them to store various toiletries and medicines I had in my bathroom linen closet.

Aren't they super cute? What was far less cute was the current state of my bathroom closet:

We didn't know where anything was and stuff would fall down as we tried looking for things. It was a mess.

I knew these round bins would be perfect as they are sturdy, already different with their logos, and so on. But, you can definitely use whatever buckets or bins you have or purchase some storage cubes from a local store.

To organize your bathroom closet:

I first removed everything from the shelves and went through and purged everything down, throwing out old expired medicines, collapsing down packaging, and so on.

I then made sure to wipe down and clean the shelves.

Then, I put things together in "like" piles.

These piles may be different for you, but they were things like

  • oral care
  • pain relievers
  • bandages and first aid
  • lotions
  • eye care
  • shaving supplies
  • bathing supplies
  • hair care
  • makeup

Then I began putting these like groupings into my bins!

Sometimes I combined two different categories, like eye care and oral care as seen above, just because I didn't have enough to fit in one bin.

You can see it is much better organized! If you don't have bins that are different (mine have different Halos characters) you'll want to label them for an easier time remembering where everything is.

When you need those items, simply pull down the bin. No more stuff falling in your face, or not knowing what you have! Yeah!
