Bathroom Organization

 

I get asked a lot about how to keep a bathroom organized.

My answer is simple: less is more. Three towels per person, and a basket or bin for everything. When everything has a home, you know where it is, and you will use it! This basket  above holds all my washcloths. Simple and pretty!

Keeping less not only ensures a clutter-less space, it also ensures that you are actually using everything you own. #proorganizersmotto #husbandscupboard Golf Accessory Storage Bin

I like to keep all my cleaning supplies in one place too. This bin is perfect! When I go to clean my bathroom, I have everything I need, where and when I need it. My favorite scrub brush makes cleaning the shower and bathtub a breeze.

I updated our shower storage recently. These built in corner units are nice but the wet bar of soap never stayed put. I love this soap caddy  It has a screw on tightener that actually works! And shaving in the shower just got easier for my hubs with this shower mirror.

My side needed an upgrade as well. Since coloring my hair, I have a lot more shampoo products to keep. I like to switch up my products, and with this gel lock bin I can keep several bottles in my shower.

The side knobs are perfect for hanging a luffa, mirror, or washcloth!

I think your bathroom should be a pretty space that you enjoy. It’s the first place I go in the morning, and the last place I am at night before bed. Make it a space you love.

One of my favorite self care rituals to do is take a long soak in my tub with lavender oil, a glass of red, and a good book. This bath tub caddy is perfect! It’s pretty AND practical, a win win in my book.

Do you or any of your kiddos have long hair? Then, this starfish hair catcher is a must. No more “snaking” long gross hairs out of your shower or bathtub drain! It comes in a pretty teal color too!

The suction cups keep it in place. Perfect for bathing babies, as it covers the hard metal drain pull.

And last but not least, my guest room bath received an upgrade with this three tiered caddy. The top bin is for grown ups, second bin is baby wash, and third bin is for baby toys! I give a lot of baths to our grand babies here.

It’s sleek and clean and holds a lot! You can hang it from the shower curtain bar or the shower head. Either way it’s a great storage solution!

If you have small children, use this corner caddy for their soap and toys. It’s easy for them to reach, but keeps the corners of your tub clean and free of soap residue. Makes cleaning your tub so much easier.

 

Thanks for reading and letting me share my favorite bathroom organizers with you! What room needs updating or tweaking in your home to make it work better for you?

Spring Cleaning

Can you believe it’s March?!

March Madness doesn’t mean basketball tourneys to me, it means “LET’S GET THIS HOUSE CLEANED” !! My family loves March….lol!

 

Why do I spring clean?

Dust accumulates, closets are full, winter is over, and it’s time to lose this weight! Clutter weight really does weigh you down! Plus, every single surface needs a deep scrub.

So here’s how “we” clean my home…..and by “we” I mean me and The Container Store lol!!

First I do a deep clean of every room.

Using harsh chemicals in my home is a thing of the past.  The Container Store now carries cleaning products! Did you know that? My favorite part is that they are all non toxic,  which is very important to me and my family.

Having a system in place makes all the difference.

House work is just that, work. And we wouldn’t got to our day jobs without the right tools and systems in place would we? That’s why I love this storage caddy .  I have one for upstairs and one for downstairs. It makes quick clean ups so easy. What I keep in my caddy is TCS’s all natural multi surface cleaner which contains orange essential oils , this 3-pack of dusting cloths, a small broom and dust pan, gloves, and these sponges.

Having everything with me in my tool box makes the job so much easier.

Can I also say how obsessed I am with this brush set by Full Circle? Not only are they gorgeous they get the job done! Click the links to see each one.

I love how they have built in loops to hang on the hook in my pantry!

Next I do a deep purge of every closet, every cupboard; nothing is left untouched.

Once the space is purged and empty, I give it a once over with my vacuum and cleaning supplies. I use these cellulose sponge cloths to wipe every surface down.

The last step is to take all my donations to my favorite charity.  The Samaritan Inn

That’s it! That’s how I spring clean my home. I will say that I hire out the washing of my windows inside and out, and leave that to the experts. Me on a tall ladder is not a good thing. lol. #clutz

But, having all the tools I need to get the job done makes all the difference. I don’t have to start and stop because I can’t find what I need.

If you’re on the search for new cleaning supplies or need to update your cleaning tools, check out these great products at The Container Store. They are quality products plus affordable, which is exactly my style!

Need help spring cleaning your home? I love to clean out closets and purge; just ask my clients.

Getting Ready for Baby

This week I helped a sweet client, who also happens to be my daughter, get her nursery ready.

This sweet baby girl will make baby number 3 for my daughter, and grand baby number 7 for my husband and I. Hashtag blessed!

This nursery shares space with the guest room. The extra bed in there will be nice for Mommy on those long nights and late night feedings.

Mommy’s design choice is simple and classic but with a modern twist. Light, airy, no clutter. Bedspread from Anthropologie.

Sheets and wall hanging from Target, crib from Ikea. All we have left to do here is raise the mattress up.

 

We turned this unused dresser into a baby changing table. I think it turned out so pretty!

Each drawer holds baby items like diapers, wipes, onsies, jammies, plus extra sheets and blankets. The drawer dividers from Target help keep sizes separate, as well as diapers and wipes organized.

The ensuite bathroom will make bathing baby easy too!

Fun recycle tip: don’t throw away the little bags that the sheets came in. Use them in your diaper bag for everything from a change of clothes to holding your keys and wallet!

And last but not least, hampers don’t have to be plastic and “not cute”! She is using this pretty basket for her baby hamper. Darling right?!

Are you, or anyone you know setting up a nursery? Need help? I’m your gal!
