Organized Bathroom Cupboards--Yay!

This month's challenge over at the Organizing Junkie's Monthly Organizing Round-Up is to organize under bathroom sinks. Now that's doable. It's not the whole bathroom, just under the sinks.

Since I was rushed to pack and get ready for my vacation, I chose to do only the master bathroom, because it didn't have 1,700 hair accessories to corral and make a decision about. I know, I'm such a cheater. So, above you see my before picture which, I admit, is not really that bad. That's because I had started on this cupboard previously, but just never finished it.

And here is my after picture. I have a lot of manicure/pedicure paraphernalia, so separating everything into the small set of divided drawers was a good idea for me. It's easier to just grab what I need and take it away.

I also really like the idea of keeping cleaning supplies in each bathroom to make quick clean-ups easier. Also, maybe it will help me to keep my bathrooms cleaner since that is my least favorite room to clean. I tend to cheat in cleaning the bathrooms too, as I've discovered that the disinfectant wipes are super handy to have for quick jobs, usually when people are coming over and I've procrastinated on my cleaning.

As you can see, some of my vertical space is wasted, but I really don't have anything else that needs to go in this cupboard, so that's okay.

Here's the before picture for the adjacent cupboard. Again, I know it's not that bad, but there was still room for improvement.

Here's the after picture. Probably the most useful thing that I've done here is to stuff that drawer full of Q-Tips. We are constantly running out of Q-Tips and even though we buy the industrial sized packs of them at Sam's Club, they never seem to be easily accessible. This should do the trick.
