For me, my bathroom is my everything. It’s where I get ready for work, escape from the kids, and well, do my business. It’s also where family and friends do their business when they come to visit. So it’s important, extremely important, that it be neat, tidy, and sparkling clean at all times. Not to mention fully stocked with lots of hand towels, TP, soaps, and lotions.
To make sure there’s plenty of space for all of that I recently added some much-needed shelving and storage- for mere pennies! If you’re in need of some extra space or just want to get organized without breaking the bank then check out my list of 20 mind-blowing DIY bathroom storage ideas.

6) Hide and Seek
One of the easiest and cheapest ways to organize and create storage when you have a pedestal sink is to wrap a curtain around and hide baskets behind it like One King’s Lane. Costs next to nothing and also adds a little glam to the space.
7) Hang it Up
A shower rod is great not just for hanging curtains, but other essential as well, like shampoos and a loofah. Just attach some caddy’s or wire baskets like Good Housekeeping to easily reach for the conditioner!
8) Shelves. Shelves, and More Shelves..
For me, the best way to get organized without making the bathroom feel cramped is by adding shelving like these from HGTV. The beauty here is you can use old wood or crates you already have and paint or stain them any color you want. And each shelf can hold something different so it looks neat and tidy.
9) No Tools Needed
Camping World came up with this quick, simple, inexpensive way to store shower must-haves. Now, everything has a place and you don’t have to worry about them sliding off of shelves when they are all wet and soapy.
