Organizing a Bathroom

My friend recently asked for help organizing her bathroom. And because organizing is one of my most favorite things to do (weird, right?), I happily agreed!

This is what her bathroom looked like before:

First, we took everything out of her bathroom and put like things together. Then we threw away anything she didn’t want and put things that wouldn’t be stored in her bathroom in the right place.

Next, we looked at what she had and discussed how best to organize things according to her needs. We made a plan for where things would go, and then it was time to shop!

Our budget goal was $50. We went to several stores and found some options, but they cost too much. We decided to go into Ross, a discount store. Jackpot! We found some baskets and twine that she liked, a caddy for hair tools, plus a few other things.

Then we went to one of my all-time favorite stores, Target! We bought a three-drawer organizer, a tray with compartments and some hooks for the baskets. In total everything cost about $52.

We put all her stuff in her new baskets and drawers and then stepped back to admire our work. Here’s her bathroom now:

Organizing something can seem like a daunting task. But if you break it down into steps, such as the ones outlined in my post “How to Organize Anything”, it can be a fun and easy process!
