Home Organization 101 – Week #12 The Bathroom

November 17, 2012



 Home Organization 101




If you would like to join our organizing challenge, sign up (here) on the event page.  Once you are signed up, join the Home Organization 101 group page on Facebook (HERE). On this page, you can ask questions, post pictures, and support each other during this 14 week process. 


I only have one rule for the challenge.




 If you are joining the challenge, please place the challenge button on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, please share the challenge on your Facebook page, Twitter, or Instagram.






Home Organization 101 is 14 weeks long. Each Saturday, I will post a new “space” along with pictures of my finished space and share the process of how you can organize yours. You can take as long as you need, and once you are finished organizing your space, come back here to this post and link up your blog (with pictures) to share with all of us. If you do not have a blog, you can take pictures and share them on our Facebook group page (here).   Questions, ask away… Our facebook page is the best place to ask them.  Have fun!  Now lets get organized.




We are almost finished with the challenge. Yay! This week we are organizing the bathroom.  Your goal for the week is to purge, clean, and organize your bathrooms. Have fun. It will be a rewarding week for you!!




1. Take a picture of your space “before” you start & share it with the facebook group here.

2. Gather up 2 baskets:  Keep, Trash.

3.  Sort & purge!  Go through everything in the drawers, closets,  and counters.  Throw out empty bottles &  trash.

4. Clean! Now you are ready to give  it a good cleaning. Scrub the bath, shower, toilets, counters, mirror and cabinets.

5. Organize! Now its time to organize.  Use baskets, bins, drawer organizers, etc… Containerize everything you can.  It makes a big difference.

6.  Now take an “after” picture. You’re done!  Come back here to share your hard work.




I have not finished with my bathroom, but for the purpose of showing you how I organize, it will do for now. 😉





My “fall” shower.



Baskets, baskets, baskets!



I used Martha Stewart folder labels for these containers.






I love to use baskets and bins for everything!!










I purchased these plastic containers at Target.

    I’ve been following this blog ever since I felt the “nesting” urge in my pregnancy, and this hits the spot literally every time! I love it, and your bathroom is slightly similar to mine, which inspires me that much more! Thanks for all you share!

  2. Jenn says:

    Wow! I love your bathroom especially the black details against the white. I really like all of the baskets too – that towel one in the bathtub is my fav! 😉

  3. Are those towels brand new? If not, how on earth do you keep them so white?????

    I love reading your blog, so many great ideas and your house is beautiful. Where did you get your green rug, been looking for one like that for my kitchen and cannot find one anywhere.

  12. Jennifer says:

    I love the entire space! You and I have very similar taste in style…classic, clean, yet vintage….<3 I too love using bins and baskets as much as possible. I will have to go check Target and TJMaxx for the metal bins and you said you also found the mini chalkboard tags there too? Where did you purchase your laundry hamper? I love the color 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!

    • Admin says:

      The laundry hamper is from either target or walmart (I forget which one). The chalkboard tags are from a local store here but I have similar ones in my store on my blog. 😉

    Beautiful Bathroom!!! Where did you get the shelf with your cotton balls and q-tips.

  14. Hannah says:

    I am obsessed with your organization series!! So inspiring!! I love the basket on your bathtub for towels!! I have been trying to solve the dilemma of having towels handy after baths and just love your basket! Where did you get it??

  15. Christa says:

    Love the bathroom. Where did you get that green rug, it’s so cute?

    • Admin says:

      They are from Target in the kitchen isle.

      • Jennifer says:

        The rug came from Target? Is it one long rug? I have looked forever for something like that. The one we have now I purchased a long time ago and really needs to go. Plus it still was never quite long enough for the double sinks.

  16. mary norville says:

    I have been to hobby lobby so many times looking for that cute basket. I cannot find it.

  17. Ashley says:

    Love it! What’s your favorite brand of white towels? Looking to invest in our own 🙂

  18. Christy says:

    Love your bathroom! I have shower organizer as yours but mine are small ones and they are great! I wanted to ask you two things, I almost buy green rug same as yours but they are pretty slipping so do you have problem to keep them stay on? And the chalkboard on wall where do you get them? Thanks!

    • Admin says:

      Christy, I use a rubber mat under each rug to keep them in place. You can purchase them anywhere. Also the chalkboard is from a local store here in Charleston sc. I dont think its available anywhere else. 😉

      • Christy says:

        I wonder what kind of rubber mat to put under? I’m asking because I always had rug that attached with rubber on back. Also do you cut to fit into rug? Thanks again!

        • Admin says:

          There are actually “rug” rubber mats or you can use the kitchen rubber dish liners that are in the “contact” paper section. Yes you can cut it to fit. 😉

  19. J. Murphy says:

    Can I just say I love the fact that you actually included a picture of your “girlie” items all organized as well? 🙂

  20. Lynn says:

    Can you tell me about your bathroom tile? Did you install it and if so, was it inexpensive?

  25. Michelle says:

    Where did you get the shower caddy??? I wish to have my home as yours one day 😉

  26. Cheryl says:

    I am very intrigued and inspired by your series. I have been unsuccessful in joining the challenge and was wondering how to get the full 14 days if organizing program. The pictures, how to’s and where to purchase is awesome! Please advise–thanks!!

  27. Anita says:

    I love your series – it has been the reason I am getting my house in order! 🙂 Where did you get the large wicker baskets in your bathroom closet? They look so spacious and I think I could really use those in one of my closets. Thank you for a great job and your bathroom looks lovely!

  28. I love how neat and organized your bathroom closet is. I have to get my bathroom closet organized!
