Bathroom organization can be really fun and a lot less maintenance than the kitchen for sure!
Your bathroom is space that can be filled with compassion and its a great place to visualize your dreams (you know, during a nice warm bath or shower).
This is the space where we bathe our kids, take physical care of ourselves, and show ourselves some love. To me the bathroom represents beauty, self-care and compassion.
That’s why its ultra important to keep the energy in your bathroom alive and fresh in order to create a space you really love to relax in.
I will have a video up for you soon on the “Emotional Elements” you can create in your bathroom but in the meantime here are some quick ways to get your bathroom organized and pretty. Be sure to follow my board on Pinterest for some more ideas!
#1 – First things first!
Declutter your bathroom; go through all the cupboards and drawers and get rid of anything that is expired, you don’t use regularly or you don’t love. You will be surprised how much you toss out and how much room you have left over!
#2 – Grouping Items
Once you have rid yourself of all that old stuff you didn’t like anyway, then create groups of “like items” (just like you did in your pantry/kitchen area). So in a drawer you could have all your band-aids, medical tape, first-aid stuff. In another drawer you could keep toothpaste, floss, etc.
#3 – Cabinets & Cupboards
In your cupboards its helpful to have shelving units or little drawers you can use to organize your beauty products, medicines, nail polish. If you don’t have a linen closet you can make enough room using shelves to place an extra set of towels. (Click Here for some shopping ideas).
#4 – For the Kiddos
Use little shower caddies for the kids so they have everything they need in one spot. You can pick these up at the Dollar Tree and they come in a variety of colors. They store easily and are perfect for keeping your kids organized! (Check them out here)
#5 – Storage Ideas
Another idea I love is having a pretty basket (or cart) next to the toilet that will easily store your extra toilet paper, feminine products, etc. (Check out these cute ones at Bed, Bath & Beyond) **Hint: You can also find these and other really pretty baskets at The Dollar General!
Remember the most important thing is how your bathroom feels to you. It’s not really about how organized it is, but how functional it is and that when you walk into it you feel good, you feel compassion (toward yourself & others), and you feel beautiful. It’s a space that should inspire you toward self-care and new dreams and ideas!
