For some strange reason, I decided to organize our master bathroom closet on the 4th of July. I don’t know why but when I opened the door, it just screamed “Please organize me!” And I obliged.
I cannot count how many times Tim has asked me to go in there and find something that he cannot find. I decided I would label places and give everything a home. There was and still is a bucket on the floor that does not belong in the closet but it doesn’t belong anywhere else at the moment either.
Everything was just thrown into the closet. You can tell that I made a vague attempt at organizing into bins or containers but just gave up at some point. Now that we’re using coupons to stock up on items when we find things at great prices, I really needed to have a place to keep those items and make them easily accessible to Tim and the boys.
I put the toilet paper and kids towels on the bottom shelf where the boys would be able to reach them. I put the face, hand towels, and our towels on the next shelf. Can you tell it’s towel laundry day since we only have two left? The next shelf working up has the hair care, flushable wipes, teeth products and body products. Working upwards, the next shelf has my foot massager, first aid products, bath products, and medicine. Each of those are in containers so they are easy to bring down to get something. The top shelf has soap and cleaning supplies. And yes, a stray mouthwash which Tim got down for me and put in the teeth supply area after the photo was taken. And I put away the rest of the toilet paper that was sitting in the hallway earlier.
Now, everything has a home and is easily found. Plus, Tim and I can easily glance into the closet and see if we are low on certain items.
