    • Discard Leftovers

      Toss things like almost-empty cleaning supplies, partially used shampoo bottles, and opened-but-used-only-once products. Too often, you forget to use the rest of that conditioner, or you buy new soap because you don't want to run out -- ultimately storing old supplies but never using them.

    • Store Hot Items Fast

      Use heat-resistant containers inside drawers (or a linen closet) so you can immediately put away hot items such as curling irons and straighteners instead of leaving them out to cool and taking up counter space.

    • Use a Step Stool

      If bathroom items are stored on tall shelves, keep a folding step stool handy. You'll be more likely to put things back where they belong when a step stool is always within reach. Look for a foldable step stool that can hang on a closet door.

    • Utilize Nooks and Crannies

      Don't forget about small spaces in the bathroom, such as behind the door. Fill these nooks with a hamper, laundry bag, or basket. This creates a designated area for dirty towels and clothes that would otherwise litter the floor.

    • Tray Time

      Trays are a cure-all in the bath: a smart, stackable way to store items that belong together, including first aid or manicure sets. Place a tray on the vanity when needed, then quickly put it away.

    • Install Hooks

      Install wall or door hooks to keep the bathroom looking organized and prevent towels from molding. This also reduces laundry by letting towels dry completely to be reused the next day.

    • Crowd Control

      Don't crowd sink tops with unnecessary items. Supplies used every day, such as perfumes, hand soap, and lotions, can be left on the counter, but keep moderation in mind so the countertop doesn't become cluttered.

    • Medicine Cabinet Miracle

      Use a medicine cabinet to corral clutter -- including toiletries and grooming materials. Medicine cabinets come in a wide array of styles and shapes to accommodate any bathroom.

      Basket Solutions

      Employ baskets (to store extra tissues, linens, or even dirty towels) so they can be easily whisked away for refilling or laundering.
