(Cheap) Bathroom Organization

Hey people!  How's your summer thus far?  Here in Texas we surprisingly have not been three digit heat that much (well compared to last year).  We've even had a little rain here and there.  One of the days that I was holed up in my house in the cool A/C I got down to organizing my kids bathroom.  Well it's a guest bathroom too.  Anywho, the clutter and mess has slowly evolved over time and I had just about had it.  My kids were not too crazy about it either.  So I got down to work and within a half hour it was oh so much better. 

And like I said it only took 30 minutes or so yet it was an eye sore for so long.  Ay ya yay I tell you.  It was a super cheap project too.  I spent about $12 or so.  (Some of what I spent here I also used in my master bath but later on that project).

Let's take a look at the right side.  The two white stacking bins in the back I got from Wal-Mart.  They came in a pack of 3 for $4.97.  The two red oval bins I got at Dollar Tree and those were 2/$1. 

Here is a center view (sort of).  At the very back underneath the white pipe I have my cleaning supplies in a green stacking bin that I got at Dollar General ($1).  It was the perfect fit in that spot and the right size for my cleaning items.  In front of that green bin I have my disinfecting wipes and then there is a small white oval basket that I also got from Dollar Tree at 2/$1.

There is not much going on the left side except for our package of toilet paper and some not so hidden plastic bags from the grocery store. I don't think it is necessary to take the toilet paper out from the packaging and put it in a basket all nice and pretty.  Besides I feel better if the toilet paper stays covered in it's original packaging.  I mean it's going on your bum so let's keep it free of dust and stuff, right?  Also, the plastic bags are for the trash can.  In the picture they look crowded but there are only four bags there and I "refill" once all four have been used.  Confession: notice that Ruffles package on the right?  Well those trash bags are for when we have company.  Yep, we fancy up for guests.  :) 

You can't tell by looking at the pics but I also used this shelf liner.  I got it from Wal-Mart for $5.88.  Only part of the roll was used in this bathroom.  The rest was used in the master bath.

And here is another final look.  As you can see I didn't lable anything because it's pretty self explanatory.  I love my label maker but I don't think the obvious has to be labeled.  The kids now have any easier time reaching for what they need and I like that the red bins give it a pop and grabs their attention. 

Yay for organization!

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.

I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:

It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…

Organized Linen Closet... Finally!

Hi peeps.  Are y’all done decorating for fall yet?  No? Oh wait that's just me.  My decor is going up little by little as the hubs grudgingly brings more Fall/Halloween totes down from the attic.  heehee.
I do however want to show off (‘cause that’s what happens in blog land) my now neat and tidy linencloset thanks to this pin on my Organization board from Better Homes & Gardens that helped me get'er done.  Ta-da!

It is a small closet in my short and narrow hallway so taking full length photos of the before and after was a challenge.  But believe me you this thing was way too crowded and stuffing clean towels into each shelf was just plain dumb.  There was too much going on in there especially with the ball caps and candles taking up valuable space on one shelf.  So just like my utensil drawerlarge utensil drawer, and junk drawer I got to work.  As I told you in my last post, I got the caps out of there and hung up in the coat closet. 
I then emptied out the entire closet a…
