Bathroom cabinet organization

The vanity cabinet in my daughters’ bathroom looked like this:

Not horrible, but not much space and kind of hard to find things. My oldest has her own towels and washcloths, as well as her beach towels, while my baby uses hooded towels and baby washcloths. I could never find the right towels when I wanted and I was tired of rooting for them.

 

 

You may recall that this past Christmas, we used a gift card to buy this shelf to help with the “lack of storage” issue in this bathroom.

While it does help, we still needed more space. I had toyed with the idea of putting a plastic chest of drawers in the vanity. The first one I brought home was too tall. #measureitbeforebuying

I did end up finding modular drawers at Wal-Mart for $9. I bought three of them. I did measure them first this time.

Then, I came home and pulled everything out of that cabinet. I decided to keep the wire shelf and the large tote with my cleaning supplies.  I fancied up those drawers with some scrapbook paper to make them less ugly.

I didn’t have room in the drawers to put the girls’ towels and washcloths, so I chose to utilize the wire rack for those. The baby towels got folded and put into a white basket that acts almost like a drawer with the rack. Emorie’s towels were folded and put on top of the rack.

I designated one drawer for each girl and stowed their washcloths and daily personal care products there.  I used plastic drawer organizers to section off and organize the drawers.

The bottom drawer is holding the girls’ first aid items and some seasonal items, like sunscreen and insect repellents.

Wanting to utilize every ounce of possible space, I stuck two plastic drawer organizers on top of the unit (and had space for them! I was amazed) to store extra toiletries and baby wipes.

I also put the cleaning supply tote on the top rack. I would put the towels in front, but it is a lot easier to move a bucket with handles to get the towels than vice versa.

I am so pleased with this organization project and it has really helped a lot.
