1. Organize Your Medicine Cabinet

Make your medicine cabinet a repository of things you need and use regularly, which means chucking any outdated medicines and relocating excess to another location. "The way to achieve a clean countertop is to change the use of the medicine cabinet," says Julie Morgenstern, author of Organizing from the Inside Out. "They are better used for everyday grooming supplies rather than medicines."

Keep like items in their own labeled storage bins underneath the sink or in the linen closet. When you need to use something, slide the whole container out for easy access. You might choose to move medicines into the kitchen because moisture can ruin them. By creating "active" storage in your medicine cabinet you'll minimize time spent in the bathroom, giving you more time to organize another space in the house.

2. Control Hair Product Clutter

Gels, sprays, curlers, combs and hair dryers take up a lot of space in the bathroom. For quick organization, buy a plastic tub for under the sink and load it up with your supplies. As you place them in the tub, evaluate whether you use the product often. If not, donate it to a friend or to charity. When you fix your hair, the whole tub can be taken out and put away without creating a mess.

3. Add Creative Towel Storage

If your towel rack isn't big enough to hang the family's towels, add hooks to the bathroom. Towel hooks are inexpensive, easy to mount and create a space for each member of the family to hang their towel. No more fighting over whose is whose, plus your bathroom floor will remain dry, not damp.
