Wood Dresser Drawers Design by Ludi

4. Divide and Conquer Your Makeup

Drawers in the bathroom tend to be catchalls for lots of different containers, most of which badly organize their contents. An expandable cosmetic drawer organizer fits in a shallow drawer and takes the place of bulky cosmetic bags. Different size compartments will organize lipstick, blush and eye shadow so you never have to root around to find what you're looking for. As you organize your makeup, be sure to throw away anything that smells or is expired. Old makeup contains bacteria that can irritate your skin.

5. Reassess the Shower Caddy

It's your best friend when you're in the shower, but is it working for you? Shower caddies that are too small or too large can be a pain, both for cleaning you and your shower. There are plenty of options: from over the showerhead and suction shelves to corner caddies. If you don't have enough room, one solution is to pare down your toiletries. How many bottles of shampoo do you really need? If you have too much, consider downsizing so you don't feel like you have to fill up the extra space.
