Cabinet Organisation and Small Bathroom Storage Ideas

Right, so it’s time for a spring clean so I decided to put my toiletries in order.

Luckily, I’ve been sent these plastic storage boxes with lids and below are before and after photos and a VIDEO too. I hope you enjoy organising your toiletries and makeup as much as I did!

As you can see, it’s a big bloody mess under my bathroom sink. I’m embarrassed to show you but I hope you can learn from my mistakes 😉

With the awesome plastic boxes I organised:

  • makeup
  • nail polish and removers
  • body lotion and butter
  • face toners and creams
  • bath products like shower gels and bubble bath
  • razors and waxing products
  • travel or mini-sized items
  • instant fake tan
  • hair products
  • sunglasses?

I’ve stacked the boxes and I also added cute little post-it notes onto the boxes to show exactly what each one has inside… and to make it easier for me to find the things that I need!

Here’s a video where I documented what I did:

You know what, I didn’t realise I had so much stuff – and how on earth do I have so many sunglasses? haha. Unfortunately I came across more beauty products and toiletries that need organising as well.

I’m so glad I’ve got myself organised, it’s so easy to find things under my bathroom sink now. Thanks PlasticBoxShop 🙂

    Oh my goodness, you are so organised! I’d love for my stuff to be organised this way. I’m afraid they’re all over the place. When we move, I hope to get more organised. I love your labels, so cute too. x

    It is amazing what a few storage boxes can do isn’t it? I have quite a few under my sink to preserve products x

    I have given up trying to get the kids to put things back where they should, they just throw it in or on the floor. Great idea though

    You’ve got us thinking about how to reorganise our stuff. Everything’s a bit disorganised in our bathroom / kitchen cupboard under the sink. Cheers for the pointers!
