With Marie Kondo out with her new Netflix Show, everyone is tidying up and sparking joy all around their homes. But, sometimes getting started is the hardest part. So, today I’m sharing with you 5 ways to declutter under your bathroom sink, since we all know this can be one of the hardest areas to organize and stay tidy.
1.Take everything out and see if they spark joy
One by one remove all the items under your bathroom sink. Throw out the products that are expired and put aside the products you don’t use anymore that you can give to your friends or family. Then with the remaining products, go through each one and see if they spark joy. Do they make you happy when you use them? Do they help with your skin or hair care? Do they smell nice? These are all some good questions you can ask.
2. Put like things together
Now, put together like items. Put together all the cleaning supplies, hair care products, skin care products, the first aid products. By grouping like things together, you are more likely to know where to find a particular item when you need it. You’re also more likely to keep your under bathroom sink area organized as well.
3. Tidy Up
Now that you have taken everything out from under the bathroom sink, this is the perfect time to clean up the area as well.
4. Make it beautiful
I personally love organizing and making the space beautiful as well. It helps me keep it organized in the future. All the spaces in my home spark joy because whenever I open my closet, a drawer, my pantry, I am just so happy by how beautiful they look. This really helps me want to keep the space looking tidy as well.
Although one may think the under sink area can be difficult to look beautiful, I think they’re wrong. Finding some beautiful baskets or storage bins really help make things look great, but also help with function. I love these storage bins from MUJI. They’re affordable, stackable and they look so beautiful under the bathroom sink. I categorized each bin and stored similar items in each.
5. Label label label
I think labeling is so important. You may not be the only one using the bathroom. So other users also need to know where items are located. By having clear labels, anyone should be able to find items and put them back where they belong. This black embossed label maker is one of my personal favorites. It gives the space a chic look while also clearly labeling what’s in each bin.
And there you have it. An organized under bathroom sink cupboard. It is so satisfying having a functional and beautiful space and it personally motivates me to tidy other areas of the house.
