Organized Bathroom Drawers

Over the weekend, I spent some time (only took about an hour) organizing my bathroom drawers. They were what I call “semi-organized” before, with similar things grouped together, but I needed to throw some old things out and group them better.  I use my favorite “Linus” clear drawer dividers from The Container Store.

The top “go-to” drawer needed the most help.  Things were just thrown in there and the makeup I never use was stored there too.

It was great to go go through my nail polish and get rid of the old, icky ones and see what colors I have.

After organizing everything, I had a whole extra drawer free, so now nail stuff gets to be by itself.
The hair clips and and bands have been relocated to a new drawer.
How many hair brushes and curling irons does one person need?  I put the ones I use most in one drawer and the others in the drawer below.
James loves to pull the curlers out of the bottom drawer and play with them while I get ready in the morning.

It’s so nice to open my nice, newly organized drawers!!  Been organizing anything lately at your house?!

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. Like you, I have an 18 month old who likes to go through the bathroom drawers. She so likes to flush things down the toilet, but that's another story 😉 thank for the inspiration. I will blame my disorganization on the fact that Santa Barbara does not have a container store.

    Have you heard from Val (SoCal)? I'm getting worried about her because her blog is suddenly private and she's not returning email which seems so unlike her. I hope everything is okay.

  2. I'm organizing at my hubby's parent's house right now… They're on a holiday and we stay at their place! Their shelves are all a mess, it's incredible, really… But they always love it when I organize something for them, so I've decided to work a bit for as long as we're here 🙂

  3. Come on! It's not a normal day unless I organize a little something 🙂 Your drawers look great. I find bathroom drawers to be so hard to keep looking good because of all the random size stuff that they hold. It's a daily challenge over her. Glad you're back 🙂

  4. Now that I've tackled the basement, maybe I can get back to organizing the smaller things…my makeup drawer is a hot mess right now! Need to clean it up and replenish for fall/winter. Love how you organized everything. OMG…between Kate and I we own waayy to many brushes! Both of us went from long hair to short, but hate to throw out our good "long" brushes just in case.

  5. Nice work! I'm so much happier when my things are organized and in a nice spot.

    I have the same kind of hot rollers, but I couldn't find mine quite as large as yours. Love me some hot rollers!

    I need to go through my nail polishes. I don't do my nails often enough b/c it always chips off so quickly.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Hi, this post, well, actually almost ALL your post just make me so so happy. I absolutly adore organization and you just put a little kick for me to do it. I don't think i've left a comment before but check your blog daily and think it is great. I just read your "losing the baby weight" post and ahhh, such great info. I am also trying to take my workout up to the next notch, (trying to lose the last five from baby #2) and just reading your suggestions on the food , I think may just be the thing I need.
    Anyway, sorry don't mean to ramble, just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy your blog and thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas on organizing and your great fashion. (OMG and YOUR CLOSET is a dream for me)
    Thank you very much! (oh, and I hope you don't mind, I have your blog listed on my blog under my fav. blog list….I don't really get into the blog thing, I really just use it to keep photos up and current events for my family that is out of the country…but would love for you to check it out…) Thank you!

  7. It looks great. I've been saying I need to do this but like you mine is "semi organized" so I haven't taken the time to get it done. Which is ridiculous because I know it wouldn't take long. Maybe this weekend!

  8. WHY do you do this to me??? =) You know I will have my rear end on the floor organizing drawers until 1 am now, lol. You are a girl after my own heart, or something like that- I just LOVE ORGANIZATION. I used to be so good at it, *sigh* =) xoxo shel

  9. You did a fantastic job. I'm about ready to clean out my linen closet and vanity drawers in the bathroom. You shoulded me some great ideas. Thanks!! I guess I need to make a trip to the Container Store and get some dividers before I get started.

  10. Great, inspiring pictures. I wish I had some drawers – I only have a deep chest so I'm wondering how to keep everything divided and not overlapping so I can actually find stuff! Some plastic bins I think. Anyway I really like breaking organizing down into small spaces like this – doing the whole bathroom at once can seem overwhelming. Thanks, Chloe
