Organizing Your Medicine Cabinet

Small Space Storage Solutions

I LOVE hitting the organizing store. The shelves and shelves filled from floor to ceiling with little holders, containers and compartments… so many ways to organize just about anything!

If you have a drawer or a space that is a mess, you’ll be able to find something there to get it all straightened out. There are the holders for specific things, like bags of milk or cans of pop. They have compartmentalized trays for drawers, storage bins and closet organizers. Things that make it easier to keep the little things in your house organized.

It’s always exciting when you have a spot with specific dimensions and you can find something that just fits and will perfectly hold the things you need it to.

I recently went to Solutions in search of something particular. We have a medicine cabinet in our bathroom that is large but shallow with only a few shelves. Everything I wanted in there didn’t seem to fit and I wasn’t taking advantage of the vertical space between the shelves. So I went in search of something that would help. And I found 2 little units that are the perfect depth and that hold all of our Q-Tips, little lotions, toothpaste, nail scissors, tweezers and more. Now every morning when I open the cabinet door, everything is in there, I know where it all is and it looks great.

So this week I suggest finding that one space in your home that could use a little containing, run out to your local organizing store and find that perfect something!

Oh and taking these pics of my medicine cabinet reminded me of a little tip… If your toothpaste tube is starting to run low, just push all of the toothpaste down, roll up the tube and use a regular old bull clip to keep it in place. Makes it nice and tidy and the toothpaste comes right out!
