Do you find yourself struggling to find your favorite skincare or personal care products in the morning? Or maybe you feel overwhelmed by the clutter in your toiletry cabinet? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then keep reading! In this post, I will be sharing my 5 Tips for organizing your toiletry cabinet and de-cluttering your bathroom using my favorite Amazon organization and Yuka app finds.

I’ve been on this spring cleaning project mood since March but it’s been a bit of a challenge figuring out how to keep things organized in such a small space, particularly our bathroom. With only have one bathroom, it’s ideal to keep it guest-friendly with minimal personal items on display.

My anxiety spikes at the sight of clutter so I am striving for a more minimalist lifestyle where everything has a place tucked away. The idea of a clutter-free home sounds so stress-free but is not always possible with a busy, active lifestyle, a husband and a curious poodle, so I have to work with what I got!

We have a small linen closet in our hallway for towels and sheets that we’ve been using for our toiletry closet since we’ve moved in but it’s gotten a bit out of hand. A bunch of random items that I barely use tussled in with my go-to products. Not the way I want to start my morning routine so I decided to give it a complete makeover, do some product inventory and get rid of items that were just taking up space and replace them with clean beauty and personal products I love with the help of the Yuka app. If you don’t know what the Yuka app, I talk more in detail about it below.

Tips for Reorganizing Your Toiletry Cabinet

Start with a Clean Slate

Before you start organizing your products, empty out your entire toiletry cabinet. This will give you a chance to clean the space, take measurements and start with a blank canvas.

Take Inventory & Group Like Items Together

5 Tips for Organizing Your Toiletry Cabinet and De-cluttering  Your Bathroom

Once you’ve emptied out your cabinet, take inventory of what you have and what you need. I found that I had a lot of near empty product bottles and beauty tools and knicknacks I no longer used. Next, group your products by category like all of your skincare together, face, hair and so on. If you are don’t use a lot of different products like me, I just used each drawer bin to fully stock each product.

Stage Your storage before you stock

Plastic and/or acrylic containers although pretty durable are still susceptible to dings and cracks. So before you add the weight of your products to them and start fitting them into their idea space, it’s probably best to stage everything first.

I spent quite some time playing Tetris figuring out the best way to organize the drawers and baskets into the closet. Some fit perfectly while others took some rethinking, and some I had to completely omit. Once it was complete, I took a picture for reference and then placed all the drawers and baskets on my counter top.

Now I had to figure out which products would go where. It took a couple rounds before I could determine which quantity and size fit best in each drawer. A good way to reference where everything goes beforehand is to label your containers, even if it’s temporary!

Label Containers

To make it easy to organize your products or find what you need if you have a larger space and product quantity, label your clear plastic bins and drawer organizers. This will save you time and reduce stress in your daily routine. I used post-its to label each drawer bin initially but ultimately decided not to place labels since I didn’t own a lot of products and my toilet closet is not that big. But do what works for you!

Maximize Vertical Space

If you’re short on width, an easy solution is using stack-able containers or drawers to maximize vertical space. This will help you store more while keeping products organized in more different compartments.

I was so happy I found these stack-able drawers on Amazon! Such a game changer compared to just using the bins because I was left with so much wasted space. With the drawers, I was able to store more with just enough clearance to add some of the smaller bins on top. Plus, the idea of sliding open and close drawers instead of digging around makes it a lot easier to grab and go my favorite products.

Cabinet Liners

Lazy Susan

Amazon has a variety of Lazy Susan turntables available that are a great option for organizing toiletries you use often. They come in different sizes and styles, making it easy to find one that fits your specific needs. The one I bought was 9 inches round and fits perfectly next to my towel basket to hold all my daily go-tos skin and oral care products.

Drawer Organizers

I found these cute little drawer organizers on Amazon but wasn’t sure if they would fit in my small toiletry closet. I measured the with and vertical space considering the door hinges and cabinet frame clearance, and it appeared to be plenty of space so I bought one set of each style first, then bought another after I was confident it would fit.

By using drawer organizers, you can separate your products by category and easily find what you need when it’s time to restock your bathroom or Lazy Susan. Plus, the clear material allows you to see everything at a glance, making it easy to keep track of your inventory.

Woven Baskets

Using woven baskets for towel storage can be a great alternative or addition to using clear plastic bins or drawer organizers. It adds a natural and stylish element to the bathroom or toiletry cabinet while still keeping things organized and tidy.

They’re also made of durable materials such as wicker, rattan, or bamboo, ensuring they’ll last for years to come. I use them to store my bath towels and shower brushes.

Not only are woven baskets functional and durable, but they also add a touch of rustic charm to any bathroom or toiletry cabinet. They can be used to store towels, washcloths, and even toilet paper. Plus, they’re easy to move around and rearrange, making them a versatile storage option.

Yuka App Finds

Evaluating Product Safety

So, you’ve probably heard of Yuka, right? It’s this free app you can get on your phone that lets you scan barcodes and see how healthy your food and personal care products are. It gives you a rating and all the deets on each product’s analysis.

While not always 100% accurate, as they are a small company learning and growing, the Yuka app can still be helpful for understanding product labels and making smarter shopping choices. However, it’s important to do your own research or consult a credible source in addition to using the app. I use it often along with other apps and sites like “think dirty” and “ewg”.

For me, the golden rule of thumb is, less is more! Less ingredients, the more your body will thank you!
