51 Dollar Store Bathroom Organization Ideas
1. Utilize Cake Stands
If you’re not a frequent baker, then cake stands would be one of the most underused utilities in your home. It’s time to utilize those cake stands in your bathroom—you can place these on the countertop. Items like shampoo bottles, conditioners, moisturizers, etc. can be placed on them and now you’ll have easier access to these.
2. Install In-door Hook Racks
Have you ever thought of storing something on the inside of your under-sink door? If not, then you must. Align and install a hook rod onto it and you can hang anything from hair accessories to makeup bags to jewelry over here.
3. Use A Pegboard
Pegboards, as we all know, are typically used for organizing a variety of accessories and that too at a minimal cost. Mount a Dollar Store pegboard in your bathroom—on an empty wall or behind the door—to provide a handy place for storing multiple bathroom supplies.
