Bathrooms are notoriously hard to organize and often house a large variety of beauty and health care products in a limited amount of space. Simply host Haley Cairo was tired of seeing her products scattered around the bathroom sink—so she decided it was time for a big reorganization project.

She started by taking everything out of her cabinets and assessing whether she still needed or used each item. Then she measured the cabinets to determine how much space she had to work with.

Next, it was simply a matter of sorting everything into categories that make sense (i.e., all hair products together, all face care together, etc.) and finding the right bins to keep everything tidy. In many cases, Haley opted for storage options that were designed for closets and kitchens, but still work perfectly in the bathroom. Using opaque storage may make your bathroom storage look less cluttered, but clear containers let you see what's where to find exactly what you need quickly.

Here's what Haley used to make over her bathroom storage.
