I’m the first one to admit I am not great at decorating or spending money on expensive drawers and organizers for any room in my house, let alone a bathroom that next to nobody will ever see. When the new year arrives though I am always ready to organize the playroom, my linen closet, and I’m always looking for how to organize your bathroom using Dollar Store items (yes that’s right, I’m cheap). Here are a few Dollar Store hacks for your bathroom I’ve used recently that help organize my kids’ and my bathrooms.
This one literally cost me $2, one for each plastic animal I found at the Dollar Store (or Dollar General or Dollar Tree….you get my drift). I hate having rolls of extra toilet paper stacked on the back of the toilet in the kid’s bathroom and this solves that problem. The rest can remain underneath the sink but just in case they run out in the middle of doing their business there’s an extra one there that isn’t as tacky as “the stack”. For the girls and their numerous thousands of hair ties is the giraffe’s neck that can keep them a bit tidier.
How to organize your bathroom
This wire basket is great to keep all the cotton balls, q tips and little loose items contained on my counter top. You can use these under your counter too to keep extra items like tooth brushes, tooth paste and “extras” you might find on sale and store in the bathroom.
Here’s something that won’t cost you a dime! Cut off the end of an egg carton and put it on the side of your sink to hold your ring when you need to take it off + the sides are great for putting your earrings in so they won’t get misplaced or go down the drain when you’re changing them!
This is a great Dollar Store organization hack from rachaelhairstylist on Instagram using removable hooks (Command), super clever and cheap! If you have a vanity in your bathroom that is built in but you aren’t a huge makeup person, like me, make use of the space and drawers and make it into a gift wrapping station….doesn’t cost you anything.
Beyond looking for items at the Dollar Store to organize your bathroom, look around your house for items you already have. No need in spending money if you already have unused containers or drawers you could repurpose like diycraftsu did with this drawer that was painted and repurposed into a shelf/jewelry holder.
