A Little Organization

Everyone who has been to my house could agree on one thing, and that is that my bathroom is tiny.  And there's only one of them.  That means that with two adults using it, there's very little storage room to go around.  I shudder to think about what it will be like one day when we expand our family and there is even less room to go around.  We don't have the luxury of being able to keep things behind closed cabinet doors.  I have two drawers under the sink that were overflowing with makeup, hair understand. Something had to be done.
Then today I was wandering around the One Dollar Spot at Target when I noticed little galvanized buckets with a ribbon handle.  I said to myself, "Those are cute and $1.  But I'm not sure what I'd do with them.  But I'd practically be losing money if I didn't buy them."  So I tossed them in my cart and went on my way, eventually picking up bobby pins and hair clips for my new favorite hairdo, the sock bun.
When I got home I was putting everything away and new exactly what I would do with my little buckets.  So I cleared the only shelf in my bathroom, filled one bucket with bobby pins, one with clips, and one with hair ties, and put them on the shelf. 

(Yes, that's a bathroom reader, Judgey McJudgerson.)

It doesn't look so different in these pictures, but the difference feels drastic to me. I like the look of the buckets and it's going to be so much easier for me to use all these items without having to dig for them through drawers. 

Have you stumbled across any treasures at the Target's Dollar Spot lately?


  1. Target is THE BEST for stuff like that. Love the look of them! Your post makes me want to go organize EVERYTHING.

    1. Thanks, Jeannette! I'm telling you, their selection is really on point right now.
