OO: Tips & Tricks: Bathrooms, Part 1

Hey Hey Everybody!!! It is Organization Overhaul time. I'm all about a little OO abbreviation!

Bathrooms! Those cabinets- they do get messy! I blame the pipes. Those darn pipes make the whole situation tricky. Don't you worry too much about those sneaky pipes. I have got some ways around them. So, let's take a look into the world of bathroom organization tips and tricks! These are photos of things I hope to use in the future or have used in the past. Some are currently organizing my world as we speak.

In your medicine cabinet:

  • Put pretty paper on the back of the cabinet or paint it so it makes you happy when you open it! This is also another chance to use the beautiful decorative items that you have stored away. Bust out those funny coffee mugs and your pretty tumblers.

  • Turn shelves into more shelves with things like this.

You can buy it here

  • Or make the entire back of your medicine cabinet magnetic and use spice containers to hold small things.

The inside of your bathroom vanity cabinet:

  • Use a piece of PVC pipe to make a handy holder for your curling iron and hair dryer. Don't put them in the PVC until they have cooled off.

  • Use a lazy susan so you can access the things in the back of your cabinet.

  • Put shelves on the back of the cabinet door.

  • Use a pull out drawer in your cabinet. And, if you aren't into the PVC method I mentioned above, throw some hooks on your door and hang your hair dryer there!

  • While we are talking about putting things on the back of your door, here is one more: cups!

Tomorrow I will be back with the rest of my bathroom organization tips and tricks as well as photos of my bathroom organization before and after (prepare to be underwhelmed with that one)!

Now, onto Wednesday's Would You Rather Question:


buddies with Alf
or Mork from Mork & Mindy?


  1. I love these ideas, my bathroom cabinets need major organizing and you have motivated me to get started (thinking about it anyway)!

    wyr: ALF, of course!

    1. Yay! Can't wait to see what you do! Wait until the 2nd post tomorrow- there are some good ideas in it too!

  2. Those are a lot of great tips! i def need to use some of them

    1. Woo hoo! Get your organizing on (or maybe you should just focus on finishing your remodeling, having a baby, and posting something on your blog!).

  3. I just did this yesterday!! Great tips!!!


  4. Those are some good ideas. My bathroom cabinets and drawers are currently insane. Luckily I have way more drawers than I need, so it doesn't matter. But I like the cups on doors idea.

    WYR: Alf. Obviously, since I had (have) an Alf stuffed animal.
