Is the medicine cabinet on of your trouble areas too? It turns into one of those catch-all areas we find in every room. If you’re trying to minimalize, try these 15 ideas to create a clutter-free medicine cabinet.
Check expiration dates and throw out all the medicine that has already expired. No use keeping it around — it’s not worth the risk!
Mount magnetic strips to hold tweezers, nail files, bobby pins, etc. This sure frees up a lot of shelf space!
Or place magnetic sheets behind your shelves to make the entire medicine cabinet magnetic. You’ll be able to add clips, hooks and more.
The back of the door is also an excellent place for stick-on pods for your makeup and toothbrushes.
Paint the inside of the medicine cabinet with chalkboard paint. It’s a smart way to keep track of items you run out of in the bathroom, or just a fun way to leave nice notes for your family.
This smart lady uses a recipe box to store boxed medicines and their instructions.
Use cups and canisters to hold makeup brushes, hair tools, cotton swabs, etc.
Some clever people have used this solution: a Rubbermaid pull-down spice rack. Even the messiest cabinet can get organized using this baby, and it doesn’t take up a lot of space.
It’s amazing what you can do with some small drawer organizers and a label maker. Now you don’t have to worry about your spouse or kids asking where the band-aids are. Right? Wishful thinking, but at least you will be able to find them quickly.
Install knobs or hooks to hang hair elastics. This is especially helpful if you don’t have any drawers in your bathroom (like us).
Hang toothbrushes with command hooks. This is an easier alternative to some of those bulky toothbrush holders.
If you live in an older home with super small bathrooms, you may not even have room for a designated medicine cabinet. This kitchen rack (or an over-the-door rack) is an excellent alternative, especially if you don’t have little ones that can get into the meds.
These little pails are darling! I also like bowls for tools, eyes, and face. Very neat and organized.
Corral and categorize meds in small, narrow baskets. I know I’ve seen these at the local Dollar Store.
Put some contact paper behind the shelves for a pop of color. Okay, so that doesn’t keep it organized, but it will make your medicine cabinet prettier.
