How do I organize my bathroom drawers?
First, take everything out of your bathroom drawer(s) and sort through and declutter the contents. Group like items and return them to individual drawers, placing things that you use most regularly at the front of drawers so that they are visible and accessible. If your bathroom vanity has multiple drawers, put everyday essentials in the top drawer for easy access. You can keep contents organized with baskets, trays, upcycled containers, or drawer organizers.
What should be in your bathroom drawers?
What you keep in your bathroom drawers should be tailored to products and equipment that you need for showering, shaving, skincare, makeup, and other daily personal care routines. Bathroom drawers can be used to store items including toiletries, makeup, nail care items, hair tools, spare towels, and medications. Try to focus on storing essentials that you reach for daily in bathroom drawers and storing extra supplies or lesser-used items elsewhere if space and storage allow.
