The cupboard is a place for the things we use every day. Everything else had to leave. Well, everything but the bubbles that I blow when Peter takes a bath, since we lost the lid to it! Gone is the contact solution since I now prefer glasses. Gone are all of the hair accessories. The things that cluttered the cabinet now have a place here.
Here is my favorite thing I did to felicitate organization in our bathroom. The sliding drawers were in place before we bought the house and I’ve always loved them. Now they are put to even better use. On this side we put our first aid supplies in the back, and in front are two clear tubs from the dollar store, one for Michael, one for me. In mine you will find hair accessories, a hand mirror, contact solution, and make up. Michael has his razor case and re-charging stand, his mouth guard for Kung Fu, Listerine (I can’t stand the stuff!), and other miscellaneous bathroom things. Now when I want to mad-dash* the bathroom, I am actually supposed to just throw everything in a container. I love this.
