Cleaning under the Bathroom Sinks.. July Round-up

Here we are again, folks! It's time for the July organizing round-up. The challenge was to organize UNDER the bathroom sink. I added the side drawers also.

Bathroom #1 (the master bathroom)
This is my junk: the top drawer of mommy's stuff.

AFTER (it's upside down here) Yes, there are labels that give homes to things like toothbrushes and make-up.

Drawer #2 BEFORE.

Drawer # 2 AFTER. (on the side)

Drawer #3 before

Drawer #3 after.. O.K. it really isn't that different..

Under the sink in Bathroom #1: BEFORE
Things blocking the drawers, bags hanging around, unlabeled drawers.. naughty, naughty.

AFTER: Labeled drawers, clutter out of the way, and a place for the bags.. (in the top left drawer)

Can you handle more? I did the kids' bathroom also. We call it bathroom #2.
This is under the sink: BEFORE

Hair supply drawer: Before

A few thoughts about organizing the bathroom:

1. Most of my organizing "system" was set for me before I even started.
I had dividers for the drawers, and plastic drawers for under the sink already in place.
2. When re-organizing, all I had to do is ask, "Has anything changed since the last time I organized?" and change it and the label.
3. It only took 40 minutes to re-organize the 2 bathrooms.
4. Once you get a system set, updates and cleaning only need to happen every 9-12 months unless you change something in your life that requires more equipment.

Awesome! I love "labelizing" and "containerizing"! It looks so great!
I don't know what I would do without my label maker--isn't that sad? lol
Love your blog and the granilla (hah) recipe. Yum!

Another inspiring job, O.M.! I do love your before and after pictures. The before shots look just like my house, so I know that there's hope I can make it to the "after" level, too.

Thanks for the before pics, it really shows the difference. I love to use those sterlite drawers when I organize too.
