On the hunt for clever "what a great idea" projects that could make your life easier? We've got 10 favorite ideas for organizing your bathroom that are small and in some cases cheap — ideas you could quickly incorporate in your bathroom this weekend to be a little more organized by Monday.
1. Magazine or towel storage and display
Have either magazines or towels close at hand when you combine these two IKEA pieces together to create a sleek rod and shelf. Seen on Still Inspiration.
2. Jewelry Display
Love the idea of installing a simple wooden dowel between two shelves — or could be between a wall and cabinet — to store jewelry in a lovely and accessible way. This painted one spotted on Better Homes & Gardens.
3. Sweetly labeled simple fabric bins
Help take the guesswork out of where you've hidden your bathroom toiletries. Kristen McAshan of Almost Exactly came up with this soft idea.
4. Baskets turned towel holders
Grab some extra baskets and save floor space by hanging them on the wall, making the perfect cubbies for storing and displaying rolled towels and washcloths. Spotted on Shelterness.
5. Organize drawers with DIY dividers
Whether it's makeup, hair accessories or more, don't let your drawers become one big tangle. Make drawer dividers out of old shoe boxes, as suggested by Real Simple.
6. Vinyl chalk cloth wall organizer
Use this vinyl chalk cloth wall organizer for everything from hair supplies to shampoo and more. (This one does require a sewing machine so may not be quick for folks who don't sew.)
7. Leather valet tray
Catch all your bathroom bits and bobbles with this leather valet tray, which is actually quite the simple and attractive catch-all to have on a bathroom counter or back of the toilet. (This one requires tools not everyone may have on hand.)
These Magnapods are just the thing to hang on the inside of a medicine cabinet to nearly double the amount of storage in that space, not to mention organize it.
9. Magnetic strip
For bobby pins, tweezers and other small metal bathroom tools that always seem to get lost, this idea comes from Lifehacker.
10. Easy under the sink storage
Steal an idea for under your bathroom sink from this kitchen post or do what the folks in this Better Homes and Gardens post did and hang a hook.
