Organize Under Your Kitchen Sink

Organize Under Your Kitchen Sink

Organizing under the kitchen sink and under the bathroom sink is always a challenge due to the plumbing and hoses that you have to work around.  I have shared with you my old system for organizing under the kitchen sink but I now have a new and improved system that I am excited to share with you.

There was nothing essentially “wrong” with my old system but recently I changed some things around in my closet and I was left with an extra shoe rack.  It was a small, narrow rack and I thought, “wouldn’t it be cool if it fit under the kitchen sink?”.  I tried it and it was a perfect fit!  There was even enough room to place my cutting boards right beside the rack.  I keep my cutting boards inside a file sorter.

I purchased two small plastic bins at Target.  One bin holds napkins and the other kitchen towels.  I now store all my glass food containers on the second and third shelf of the shoe organizer.  They are so easy to access!

On the cabinet door, I placed a large over the cabinet basket that holds garbage bags and storage bags.  All the additional storage bags and sponges are on the other side of the shoe rack.

On the opposite cabinet door, a grocery bag container holds all my bags – that happen to be all from Target!  :-)  There is a similar one here but most home stores have a version of it available.

What else do you keep under your kitchen sink?  Do you also find it a challenging spot to organize?

Organizing Small Bathroom Sinks

 

Last week we organized the shower area, and this week we tackle the bathroom sink or vanity area.  More specifically, organizing small bathroom sinks, such as the one in my master bathroom.  My husband has the same size sink on the opposite side of the bathroom and it works for him because all he stores is a toothbrush, a bottle of mouthwash and a razor…men…

However, my sink area has been challenging.  Where was I supposed to store all my makeup, cleansers and moisturizer??  A girl can simplify but she can’t part with all her products!

I would have loved a small cabinet, but the area was too narrow and I would’ve bumped it every time I leaned over to rinse my face.   A bloody nose would not mirror one of those graceful moments in facial care commercials.  By the way, who actually makes all those faces while applying product on their face?  I am sure that I make faces, but not pleasant ones.

But I digress.  So I added small shelves along the side and it gave me a ton of storage!

A closer look at the shelves.

Update to post:  Many of you have asked me where I purchased these shelves.  I think that I found them at Target years ago, but I no longer see them at the store.  I have just added a similar set to my Amazon store and you can find them HERE  Otherwise, you may want to check Homegoods or Marshalls.

The shelves are small but hold a ton.  I also like the open shelving (in this case) because these are items that I use daily.  Here are all my makeup brushes.

The third shelf holds items that I don’t use everyday but I do use often, and a little plant to prettify the wall.

Organizing Small Bathroom Sinks

Bathroom sinks can get cluttered in no time if there is no system in place.  When you don’t have a lot of counter space, sometimes the best solution is vertical storage.  Use your walls when the counters won’t do.

Do you have a narrow sink like me, or a large area to spread out your makeup and products?

Later this week, we will organize under the sink and I will share my master bathroom update, so stay tuned!
