How To Organize Bathroom Drawers

Share it with others!

Are you looking for bathroom drawer organization ideas? I love organization projects and finding the easiest ways to sort items to make the most of a small space. After opening my bathroom drawers one morning I knew it was time to organize my master bathroom again. Just a little cleaning, decluttering, and a few plastic bins from the dollar store, and it’s organized again. Today I want to share the basic steps to organizing your bathroom cabinets so you have easy access to everything you need.

Here's the before shot - too much stuff! it was falling over each other, I couldn't find what I needed, and it was time to get to work.

Here’s the before shot – I have enough room in my bathroom vanity drawers, but way too much stuff! it was falling over each other and nothing was within easy reach. It was time to get to work.

The first step was removing everything out of the drawers and cabinet. I also went through everything and got rid of anything I wasn't using, was old, etc.

The best way to begin is by removing everything from the drawers and cabinets. I went through everything and got rid of anything I wasn’t using, was old, etc.

I vacuumed and wiped out all of the drawers and the cabinet under the sink.

I ran to the dollar store and grabbed some inexpensive baskets to help with my organizing.

I ran to the dollar store and grabbed some inexpensive bathroom drawer organizers. Using plastic containers of different sizes is a great way to store items and make the most of every square inch of space available.

I placed the baskets into the drawers and filled them with the items that made sense.

I placed the small baskets into the drawers and filled them with similar items. You can use a different container for skincare products, beauty products, hair products, makeup brushes, hair elastics, etc. This will clear off your bathroom counter so you have a clean, uncluttered space.

I went through all 3 drawers doing this same process.

I was able to put some of the back up supplies in the back as well.

I also added a tension rod under the sink to keep my cleaning sprays easily accessible for cleaning. I'm thrilled at how clean and organized it all is.

You can add a little vertical storage space by adding a tension rod under the sink. This is the perfect place to hang cleaning sprays so they are easily accessible. I’m thrilled with much bathroom storage I have now and how clean and organized it all is.

What are the best drawer organizers?

There are several to pick from, and I like using baskets from Walmart or the Dollar Store for inexpensive and effective options.

How do I organize my vanity drawers?

First empty out your drawers and eliminate anything you don’t need, don’t like, or is expired. Next vacuum and wipe out your drawers. Measure your drawers and buy baskets to organize your drawers. Place items back into the drawers but only what you need.
