Are the endless bottles of shampoo, shower gel and creams taking over the bathroom? If you’ve run out of space to store things, here are a few tips to help you get your bathroom back.
- Grab some medium sized boxes for moving and put everything in view inside it. This includes all bottles, beauty supplies, extra toilet paper rolls, magazines and knick-knacks. If your cabinets are also overflowing, take everything out as well.
- Sit on the ground with the box and go through everything in it. Do you really need five different bottles of shampoo, six different face creams and ten pairs of tweezers? Get rid of anything that looks or smells “old,” any container that’s almost empty and any product you haven’t used for longer than a month. If you haven’t seen the need for it until now, what are the chances you magically will tomorrow?
- Separate the items you use on an everyday basis to leave out. Everything else should go inside the cabinets. Consider getting small cardboard boxes, plastic baskets or containers to hold the items you’re putting away.
- Get baskets or caddies to organize everything. A small plastic basket on the sink can hold a number of products and make things look a lot tidier.
