We all know how messy our bathrooms can get after a night out. Whether it’s the hair irons on the floor, or the make-up brushes in the sink, our priority when getting ready is to look our very best, and not mind the mess. But because we spend so much time in our bathrooms, we also know that the mess never really lasts. Even if we’re just de-cluttering and shoving things in random places without actually organizing them, it’ll eventually get done. Perhaps if you thought of ways to better organize your bathroom, cleaning the mess would take half the time. According to psychology today, organized rooms are proven to improve your happiness and reduce your stress. Reducing clutter alone is said to increase productivity. So, if all it takes is a little organization to boost happiness and productivity, why don’t we all start organizing today! I have listed 10 tips below on how you can better organize your bathroom and de-clutter your space.
Drawer dividers might just be the most efficient accessory you can put in your bathroom. Not only will you know where everything is quickly, but you will also be able to create extra space to store more things. Luckily for you, there is a drawer divider for absolutely anything. Whether it’s for make-up, for your kitchen utensils, for your important documents, for your underwear, or for your socks, the list goes on and on. I have attached a few varieties below.

Makeup Drawer Organizer
I only recently got makeup drawer organizers and I cannot believe I waited this long! First things first, I can finally see everything I have. I know that may not seem like a big deal but when you have a ton of makeup and only one small drawer to put it in, it looks like a giant mess that is not fun to pick through. Now, I can group specific things, such as all my lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, eye liners, etc. My brushes are in perfect order and my creams are perfectly lined up. And because it’s so easy to put each thing I use right back, it stays organized at all times! I highly recommend makeup drawer organizers, they are not only worth it, but also super affordable.

Hanging Shower Caddy
If your shower or bathtub does not come with built in shelves, I would recommend investing in a hanging shower caddy. They’re great for both de-cluttering and for cleanliness. Leaving bottles on the floor of your shower or rims of your bathtub causes clutter and mildew stains that you later have to clean. It’s added work you don’t need to do! Plus, there are unlimited options of shower caddy’s, whether you want 1, 2, 3 or 4 shelves, it’s completely up to you. Oh, and did I mention they’re super affordable?

Since we are big consumers, we have a lot to store. But storing our things in an overflowing drawer or vanity mirror is not the most ideal. Therefore, we should all do ourselves a favor and invest in storage baskets. Beyond just storing our things, storage baskets organize them and can even make for a great aesthetic. You can put anything you’d like in the baskets, whether its toilet paper, hand towels, or bed sheets, the list is endless and not limited to just bathroom accessories.

Rolled up Towel Rack
Towels can take up a lot of space, sometimes an unnecessary amount. If you’re living in New York City like me, then you especially know how efficient you have to be with your space as you’re barely given any, lol. Rolled up towels also just look better in general!

A hair organizer is really nice but I would not say it’s the most efficient. Depending on the space you have, I would or would not get it. If you have a giant bathroom, then I highly recommend it. But if you don’t, it’s a waste of your space and it’s not absolutely necessary. You can still store your hair irons/products in a drawer or in your vanity. If you have a giant space and are interested in one, I would recommend you buy one that resists heat so that you can put your irons/curlers/blowers back in after using them.

Double Shower Rod
And last but not least, the double rod! I’m going to be honest and tell you that I do not find these aesthetically pleasing and therefore do not have one. BUT! Double rods are extremely efficient. You can let your towels and clothes dry on them and you can mount it backwards so that no one can see your things unless they are in your shower. You can also use it for double shower curtains, a sheer curtain and a thick fabric curtain.
