It's that time of the year to take a bath...no no, I mean organize your bath!
Now that I am sharing a bathroom with Joe, the amount of things I need to store has definitely increased. Joe has a pretty impressive collection of razor blades and grooming accessories, but I have to admit I have him beat with all my hair accessories (bobby pins, straightener, dryer, curling iron, brush, spray, etc, etc.), lotions, perfumes, make up, and nail polish. Luckily he doesn't complain when I spill over to his side;)
Less is more. To keep the bath looking neat and tidy, we keep the bear minimum visible on the counter top. We have a tissue box, toothbrush holder, and soap dispenser...that's it! Everything else has a home under the sink or in one of our three drawers.
His and Hers. A drawer for him and a drawer for her makes things easy. No point in crossing over each other to get to your items, just keep it on your side. Try personalizing your drawer with liners from Hammocks and High Tea. I love their patterns! Tidy up a bathroom vanity with drawer organizers that have several compartments. They keep things from rolling around and the consistency look better.
Extra. I like to have backups in the bathroom. Not the kind that requires a plunger. For example, when we run out of shampoo, I have one in stock, and then it goes on the grocery list to replace our inventory. No need for the back up items to be under the sink. If you have space in a linen closet or in your master closet, throw the extras in a bin and label it to match your closet decor. It's like your bathroom stockroom in a box. "Case, do we have any more body wash?" "One second while I check the back....."
