Home Neat Home: Bath + Linens

January 27, 2011

IMG_9020

I have two rules when it comes to the bathroom, toiletries, and linens.

Revise that. Three.

1) Keep clutter out of sight

2) Leave space

and of course

3) Simplify :mrgreen:

On the bath front, I’ve tried to keep things that I need nearby yet tucked away and have implemented new uses for old things to do so.

We have ONE bathroom in this house, so it’s all in one!

IMG_9033

This is the medicine cabinet over the toilet. We all must have some ugly things in our medicine cabinets – bandaids, floss, extra toothbrushes, nail polish remover, extra soaps, rubbing alcohol, pain relievers. Don’t see too much of that do you! [Although I’ll admit that we don’t keep a ton of medicines on hand!]

IMG_9028

My technique is to put the ugly stuff in the back and cover it up with pretty stuff. You could even use EMPTY pretty bottles!

IMG_9031

Also, turn the labels so it looks more real simple.

IMG_9032

These sugar bowls weren’t getting much use in our china cabinet, so I moved them upstairs. Inside you’ll find Alieve, aspirin, wart remover (!) and other small things

IMG_9029

Same with these mugs that I thought looked cute in here. They have extra soaps and mini toothpastes! They certainly look better than if I had them all just stacked on the shelf.

IMG_9030

I also have a cute little chest my grandmother gave me that stores more little things like bandaids, floss (I really do floss every  night! It’s addicting!) and nail clippers, an extra toothbrush.

IMG_9035

IMG_9037

IMG_9036

Underneath I have some bath products and extra TP – all contained and out of site (although the bath products are pretty!) I also keep some Method wipes easy to reach for quick sink (and floor!) clean ups when I don’t want to get out the big cleaning supplies stuff. 

IMG_9038

Since our above-the-sink cabinet is more for daily use and less for storage (and is also not see-through) we have daily things in here – toothbrushes (Matt’s is usually in the black thing) and Matt’s stuff.

Remember to leave space so it feels airy!

IMG_9039

I also think when it comes to bathrooms, upgrade the grody stuff if it drives you nuts. Our old toilet brush was pretty gross so I got a new one that matches the green and white theme. It makes me so much happier. I’ll admit that’s not the greenest [ha!] solution, but for $5 it was a nice change. 

IMG_9034

So where are all my other girly things?

Tucked away.

IMG_9059

In a nice box full of organized clutter at the bottom of my closet. Here’s where I put all kinds of makeup samples and travel stuff. I go through this a few times a year and get rid of the near-empty stuff or stuff I realize I’ll never use. I am such a hoarder of hotel shampoos!

IMG_9060

We are lucky in this house to have a nice big linen closet!

IMG_9016

It holds 2 spare sets of sheets (we have 5 sets total for our master and guest beds and 3 of them are on the beds). I like to fold sheets into a packet with the pillowcases folded lengthwise and wrapped around the flat and fitted sheets like a clamshell. Makes them easier to carry and it looks very neat on the shelf.

IMG_9019

For towels, I always put the folded side out (compared to the ends) so it looks more spa-like. I’m not that anal about folding my linens (they are pretty sloppily folded) but I do like them to all be the same way.

IMG_9017

Lastly, my cleaning supplies are in a carrying crate (it took me 5 years of adult life to learn this trick from the home magazines!) so I can tote them from room to room. I’m not too happy with my dustbuster situation (wish I could keep it plugged in) but I just take it out to charge once a week or so after using it on the bathroom floor.

IMG_9018

I’d love to hear some of your tricks for organization! And anyone with a photo of a super neat linen closet or bathroom – send them to me to post for more inspiration!!

Nice and neat … and airy. That’s my style, I just wish my 5 year old daughter would get on board! :-) The tip that I love regarding bed sheets is to fold all of the sheets and them put them INSIDE one of the pillowcases to keep it all contained.

I am a teacher in NJ and have a snow day today. Hurray for snow days! After I grade some papers and do my report cards, I am totally tackling my bathroom and linen/storage closet. I desperately need to declutter and organize. You have inspired me! I am loving this simplifying and organizing series. Thanks for all the great ideas!

Reply

9 Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete January 27, 2011 at 11:43 am

Kath I love these posts! I am in the process of simplifying everything in our house and it has been lots of fun!

For the bathroom — I have plastic tubs to hold all of my lotions, body wash, razors, makeup, extra toothbrushes, etc. Jason has his cabinet and I have mine — and it works out really well!

I love the little sugar holders for your wart remover :) How hilarious. I have little tupperware containers in Jason’s drawer to hold all of our nail clippers (we kept “losing them” so we kept buying more) — now we have 9 clippers! and tons of chapstick — it makes the drawer look so much more organized.

My dad and I are super hotel sample hoarders…and even take a few from the maid cart if it’s sitting in the hallway unattended. Therefore, we have 392434 of those things. I finally learned to put it in a basket instead of letting it roll freely in the drawer. No one sees my bathroom except me so it’s not as motivating to keep clean!

I didn’t read all the comments, so this might be a repeat: I like to put all those hotel soaps, shampoos, and lotions that I don’t use in a cute little basket which I place in the guest room. Guests always forget something! I also put in there the toothbrushes from the dentist office (mine is an electric Sonicare) and any other extra toiletries, like disposable razors and the like.

If I ever do end up needing something, I know where to find an extra!

48 Tonyne @ Unlikely Success Story January 27, 2011 at 12:56 pm

One of my favorite tips I got from my sister, I can never fold sheets so they look nice and neat, especially the fitted ones. So I fold my sheets and then I place them inside one of the matching pillow cases and fold it over to close. This keeps the fitted sheet, flat sheet and pillow cases all together neatly and looks better on the shelf.

Reply

49 sheila I January 27, 2011 at 2:42 pm

That is how I do it. We have 5 beds, all assorted sizes, so that keeps me sane to just pull one case out of the closet with everything inside. Especially if I need to change a sick kid’s bed at 3 am!

Reply

51 RhodeyGirl January 27, 2011 at 12:59 pm

These are really my favorite posts ever.

I am the opposite with towels. I must fold them JUST SO or the closet looks messy to me.

We maximized our linen closet space my hanging little wire baskets on a wall that was previously not used for anything. We each have two for our daily toiletries and such. Then I hung an old school coat hook on the inside left side of the closet and my hairdryer sits there out of the way and not taking up space. Extra stuff (like duplicates and travel shampoos etc) are in little tupperware bins under the sink for easy access. Bathroom cleaning supplies are in a bucket in the closet. The only things on the counter are our toothbrushes (in a pretty cup), hand soap and a candle.

Now… if only you’d teach us how to keep our bathroom clean! Showers are my nemesis!

I have a cute storage cabinet and keep my towels rolled on the top shelf and toilet paper stacked on the bottom. It’s out of sight but looks organized even when the doors are open!

Thank you so much for all your wonderful ideas on being organised, come the day you start a family, it will make life soooooo much easier. It is just as easy to put things away as you do, than to be unorganised, it really is time saving in the long run (I am a Nanny for 4 kids under 6 !!!!)
If you fold sheets top to bottom, then fold across into quarters, you end up with a quarter of the width, so at a glance you can tell what size the sheet is,then just fold the length to fit on the depth of your shelf.
When you work in a house that has baby cot, single, king single, double, queen and king it is not good to be hauling out sheets to see what size they are.
Keep it coming, I need all the help I can get……Thank you

First-time commenting, although I’ve been reading for almost a year. I really like this series you’re doing! I especially like the idea of just using a dustbuster or the method wipes for a quick, easy clean-up. I usually do a “major” cleanup after 2 weeks because I’ve shed so much hair on my bathroom floor or it’s gotten too dusty/gross in the bathroom. Thanks for the tip!

Hi:
I love the top cabinet with the crystal knobs. Where did you buy it?

Thanks

I love these posts. When I read it, it feels like a task that is doable coming from someone real, instead of reading them from magazines. I’m more inspired from real examples like yours, rather than reading them from professionally organized/staged closets.

I know I have too much stuff. Reading your organization series really confirms that life is better lived when it’s simple, lol!

Do you want to do swap clothes for nut butters? I have a lot of new and unworn stuff. Ha ha j/k

I love this series Kath! I’ve always admired your organization and neat, simple living. Any ideas for home office papers, supplies? We’re in the midst of overhauling our ‘office’ and after trips to Staples and Office Max, I’m not any better off.

Thanks!
