Medicine Cabinet Organization

Right here is the medicine cabinet, and it has basically anything that someone might need to get ready fast in the morning, and just anything they might need. Let me share with you what’s inside. There’s toothpaste, there’s floss, there’s cotton balls, cotton swabs, cotton pads, everything has a cover on top so it doesn’t get dusty or dirty.

There’s wipes right here, there’s little perfume samples. I’m going to show you, there’s more samples down below of anything that someone might need right here. There’s Advil, there’s more medication, there’s mouthwash, there’s travel spray, there’s hand sanitizer, a lint roller and matches for the candle that is inside the guest room. There is open space at the very top so if they want to unpack and put their stuff away, there is plenty of space to do just that.

On the vanity top, there’s really not many things, so again, they can put their stuff here and not feel like it is too cluttered. There’s hand soap and there is lotion, and really that’s it. When you have a clear vanity top, it also makes it a lot easier to clean, wipe down, and also just keep it clean as well.

All right, now I’ve showed you these two places, let me share with you what is in the cabinet and the drawers below.

Bathroom Cabinet Organization

Down here is the cabinet and there is a set of drawers right hers, so I will show you the drawers first. These two drawers are completely empty because you want your guests to be able to unpack and feel like they are at home, so nothing is kept inside these. If you have to use your guest room as storage because you need more storage, before your guests come, take everything out and clean it up and just make it empty for them to unpack.

The bottom drawer has extra toilet paper, there’s some paper towels, there’s tissues and a cup for rinsing the bathtub after they take a shower, if it needs to be rinsed out.

This cabinet right here has all of the toiletries that someone might need to take a shower, again to get ready in the morning, and everything is of course sorted by category to make it super fast for someone to find exactly what they need, when they need it. There’s body, there’s face, shaving, lotion, tampons, hair stuff and then dental stuff. I just used pineapple labels because pineapples are a symbol of welcome. I used stackable organizers to maximize your vertical space because you have this really tall cabinet and you don’t want to have dead space.

On the bathroom cabinet door I have a over the cabinet door blow dryer organizer, so it just gets the blow dryer our of the space and on to the door, again to maximize your space, and this is puttied down along with the stackable organizers I just shared with you. Then there is the microfiber cloth right next to the hair dryer, so your guests can clean the top of the vanity if there is extra water, or it’s dirty, and then there is a cleaner right here, so they can use the cleaner if they would like.

That’s the cabinet, and those are the drawers, now let me share with you what is on the other side of the bathroom.

Around-the-Bathroom Organization

Whenever I have guests who are about to come in to town, I will make sure they have fresh towels in here, so the day before I will come in and put fresh towels right here, and then these are face towels for washing your face, or for drying your hands, and this is in a basket that is puttied down to the top of the toilet so it’s not going to move, or it’s not going to slide off. Of course, make sure that they are clean before your guests arrive.

The toilet paper, I will just fold it in to a nice triangle, just like they do in a hotel. Again, it’s these little touches that makes them feel like we were excited about their visit, and we are excited to have them inside of our home.

Shower Organization

Over here, there’s two towels for drying your hands and stuff, and then back here is the shower.

So what I will do right here is, again, the day before they arrive, I’ll take a foot towel and I’ll fold it nicely, hang it right here, and on the shelf right here, it’s nice to go to someones house and they have, again, all the toiletries in the vanity, but also in the shower. There’s bottles of shampoo, conditioner, there’s face wash, shaving cream, and on the other side there’s body wash and soap. Right here there is a squeegee that is hung using a command hook to get it off of the surface and on to the wall for squeegeeing the shower after you take a shower or take a bath.

Life is all about relationships, and having guests over is a lot easier and less stressful when your house is organized and you have systems in place that work for you and your family.
