Organize Your House: One Room At A Time {Bathroom Cabinet}

Happy Monday, lovely readers! We’ve lived in our house for almost a year, and I am so thankful for it! No house is perfect, and the master bathroom at my house is clearly not the product of a woman’s design. It’s teeny tiny, so a pedestal sink was installed when our house was remodeled a few years ago. It’s pretty to look at, but there’s no room for storage and no place to set my stuff when I’m getting ready! My curling iron even has a hard time balancing on the rim! I found a plastic box on the TJ Maxx clearance aisle, and balancing it on the rim of the sink is the only thing that has worked for me.

My makeup kit is pretty minimal (at least I think it is). Here’s what I keep in my magical balancing makeup box: 🙂

  • Decorative cup:brushes & BB cream
  • Standing up: deodorant, face lotion, foundation and hair spray
  • Makeup bag #1: powder, blush, eyebrow pencil, mascara, eyeliner, tweezers
  • Makeup bag #2: eye shadow (I keep these separate in an attempt to keep that inevitable “shadow powder” from getting all over everything else)
  • Laying flat: combs and handheld mirror

Here’s the storage cabinet we installed over the toilet. There’s an open shelf over the cabinet that you can’t see in this picture. I keep a few bath and hand towels up there. For me, the key to keeping storage areas in order is having plenty of container options. Can you imagine what a horrible mess this would be if all my makeup, rollers and hair care products were loose inside the cabinet?


Here’s a frugal living tip: if you like to use different or higher end hair products, follow coupon bloggers that advertise free samples. I like to keep moisturizing conditioner samples in my cabinet for days when I need to give my hair a little extra moisture. Samples are also great for small storage areas!  

If you made it this far, thanks for hanging with me today! Here’s to organized bathrooms , no matter how tiny!
