1. Use a shower curtain with pockets for some extra, handy storage.

Your shower curtain is probably one place you never thought to store bath essentials, but luckily there’s even a product for that too. With this bathroom storage idea, you can easily fit all the soaps and cleaning tools you need while showering or flip it around to store other bathroom essentials, such as hair care products and deodorant, at arm’s reach.

2. Hang your toothbrushes (and everything else) with this wall-mounted hanger.

Buy it on Amazon – $13.94 (regularly $16.99)

Freeing up your bathroom counter space is priceless especially if you’re sharing a small space with your whole family. I personally made the switch with all my kiddos to some Quip electric toothbrushes which stick on any flat surface and it really does make such a difference!

However, by scooping up one of these wall-mounted hangers, you don’t need to splurge on fancy toothbrushes. Plus, you’ll even have a place for all your other essentials like toothpaste, razors, and so much more!

3. Store all your clean towels on a wall-mounted rack without the need for a linen closet.

Buy it at Target – $20.49

Those towel bars taking up all your wall space aren’t doing any justice for your bathroom. Instead, consider hanging a unique shelf to store multiple towels at once. If you’re short a linen closet, this is also a decorative, yet very effective, way to store some of your clean towels.

Plus, this bathroom storage idea even comes with a shelf on the top, perfect for washcloths, a candle, or even a cute plant to liven up your space.

Hip Tip: Speaking of towels, these are the best-rated bath towels on the market. 🙌🏻

4. Use an outlet shelf to keep your countertops clutter-free.

    I put extra rods against the wall of my shower/tub to hold everything. We each have our own mesh hanging shower organizer. Everything drip dries wonderfully through the mesh. One rod low for the kids and one up higher for us. The bigger pockets hold my large shampoo bottles with no problem.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How neat! Thanks for letting us know how you’ve organized your shower items! 🙌
