Bathrooms are notorious for feeling cluttered, thanks to the large amount of stuff you need to store there, and the very limited space you have in most bathrooms.

Thankfully, with a little editing and one of these three techniques, you can make the most of every inch of space in your under-the-sink storage.

First, take stock of what you have—now's a good time to throw away any expired products or things you don't use anymore. Sort everything that's left into different categories (like hair, makeup, dental products, first aid), so you can easily find exactly what you need. Take pictures and measurements of your space and head to the store to pick up organizational products to give everything its own spot.

When it comes to under-sink storage, consider one of three techniques for making the most of every inch. You can opt for stacking drawers that corral various products—use clear organizers, along with labels, so you can easily find what you need. Another option is "spin and stack," with a spinning lazy susan that can hold larger items, and stacking shoeboxes you can fill with smaller items. The third technique, open containment, uses stackable bins to keep everything you need in its place.
