Before Jacob was born, I was in a pretty decent nesting kick. All of the things around the house that were on the “someday” list suddenly became “must dos” and I was on a roll. Over one weekend, I cleaned out and organized all of my cabinets & drawers in the kitchen and the bathroom. They were nice & neat – it was wonderful!
Fast forward about three years and though my storage solutions are still in place, they aren’t quite as tidy as they once were. My latest battle is the bathroom storage. As you know, I’m on a decluttering kick and trying to eliminate a lot of unnecessary things from my life. Couple that with all of the medications and medical supplies that I need, along with all of the supplies that will soon become a regular event with the PleurX catheter, and there’s just too much.
So, I’m turning to you for HELP! I am looking to organize under all of my bathroom sinks (2 bathrooms but 3 under sink areas). In addition to the normal stuff such as lotions, hair products, cleaning items, makeup, tooth care, shaving items, travel toiletries, band aids, sunscreen, baby items, extra shampoo/conditioner/soap, etc., I also have a lot of medications. Not just day-to-day things, which I store separately, but others as well. My insurance requires that all daily medication (even if still testing out the amount), must be bought in 90 day supplies so I have quite a few bottles of medications. I also have lots of products for wound care related to my radiation burn (still not healed) and I keep all of my essential oil supplies here as well. Draining the PleurX catheter will require a station of its own supplies so I need a space to store those items as well (oops, need to add purchasing those supplies to my to-do list too!).
Add all of that together and there just isn’t enough room! I am sure there is a better way to organize things so here I am asking for help. J I’ve been scouring Pinterest and I’m surprised to say I have not found many fabulous ideas…it’s not often Pinterest doesn’t come to my aid.
What tips and tricks do you use for storing all of these different items? Is there a certain way you like to organize things? I saw stackable storage containers on Pinterest – are they the best way to store things to maximize space?
Feel free to share pictures! Any and all ideas are welcome. I am quickly running out of time before surgery and would love to have everything organized before then since I won’t be able to move my right side a whole lot at first. Thank you!
