One thing that’s super annoying about organizing underneath the bathroom sink is the annoying J-pipe in the middle of the cabinet! This totally limits what you can and cannot do when it comes to organizing the space.

In this video, I show you how I organized my bathroom cabinet to get the most out of the horizontal and vertical space. I just love this space now, everything is super easy to access, easy to put away, and there is now a home for everything!

    Hi, everyone. So in this video, I’m going to share with you guys how I’m organizing my bathroom cabinet.

    So this is my bathroom cabinet. I’m just going to quickly go up and down and show you guys and then I will explain in more detail. But if you saw my last bathroom cabinet and you saw that it looked a lot different from this, what I did was I wanted to come up with a new system for the new house and I also got rid of a lot of stuff before we moved- like stuff I wasn’t using anymore or no longer needed.

    So this is pretty much all of my bathroom stuff with the exception of my makeup which is a lot smaller in this house than in my old house. So I will have to show you how I organize my makeup and my organized linen closet another time.

    How to Organize a Bathroom Cabinet

    So let me just show you guys what I did here. So when you’re organizing underneath the bathroom sink, you’re always going to have that annoying j-pipe underneath the sink that you kind of have to organize around and it’s so annoying and it’s so frustrating and you really have to get creative with the space.

    So what I did was got these stackable bins. I like them because they’re open like there’s no lid here that’s going to open, everything is just open so you can just come inside the cabinet and grab what you’re looking for and then put it back when you’re done. They come in different sizes so I was able to put the bigger ones on the outside and then the smaller ones toward the middle around the j-pipe so you can kind of see that everything just fits really nicely.

    And what I did underneath here, which I don’t know if you can see here, but I put some putty. Let me see if you can just see it over here. There you go. So I put some Museum Putty, Mounting Putty on the bottom of each bins so they don’t move, so they stay in place. So these are plastic lightweight bins. And if you’ve ever had a lightweight bin, you know that it moves especially when you’re trying to get something out and you go like that, the bin moves. So the Mounting Putty just holds it in place really securely and it doesn’t move. So that’s really nice also.

    Organizing Hair Accessories & Toiletries

    So let me show you guys everything I have. So I have my hair tools down here. So this is like my curling iron, my flat iron, my hairbrush is here. This one is still empty for the most part. I think there’s a nail kit in there.

    Then this is everyday things like face lotions, toothpaste, tweezers, scissors, deodorant, I have perfumes down here, I have lotions here, and then there’s Advil also. Over here, I have tampons, I have Q-tips, I have soap, and then facial stuff for washing my face. There is wipes for cleaning around the sink. There are razors. There are wipes. There are paper towels, toilet paper, and trash bags.

    So up here, this bin is kind of hard to access. So I want to put something up here that I wasn’t grabbing every day. And so, this is like extra trash bags to line my trashcan. I’m not really grabbing that every day. I’m just grabbing it every time I take the trash out.

    And then on the inside of the bathroom cabinet door, I have an over the cabinet door organizer holding my blow dryer. And then on the other side, I have all of my hairsprays, hair gels, creams, and anything that I need to make my hair nice.

    So my favorite thing about this system is how everything is just super accessible and organized. Like I love the fact that I can just get out of the shower, I can just open up the cabinet doors and immediately grab like my deodorant, my lotion, my face lotion, tweezers, anything that I might need to get ready for the day. Everything is just so easy to find. It’s easy to grab, easy to put back, it’s easy to maintain, and it’s working for me.

    And another thing I like about the space is how the space is maximized. So you can see that I’ve organized across but I’ve also organized up. So I’ve maximized my vertical space and not just like my horizontal space.

    I also like these cute little labels that I made. So I just took scrapbook paper and I cut it out and I put it behind the little label holder right here and then I just took my label maker and then I put a nice white clean label so you know exactly what goes inside this bin.

    So that’s how I’m organizing everything in my bathroom cabinet. I hope these tips were helpful. I hope you can use some of the things I shared with you guys.
