Organize Toothbrushes and Hairbows with Cutlery Trays

In what now seems to be the third installment of a Pinterest and Ikea organizing series, here is a simple bathroom drawer organizing idea.

Years ago I became grossed out by the idea of keeping toothbrushes out on the counter in the bathroom.  To me that's like eating a sandwich that sat out exposed in a bathroom while one person after another pooped and flushed and peed and flushed and spashed germy water all over the place. I wouldn't eat that sandwich, and I wouldn't let my kids do it either.

Anyway, because I'm weird about that, in the old house we kept our toothbrushes in the medicine cabinet, but now we have drawers the right size for cutlery trays.

There's space for toothbrushes, toothpaste, and "kissy-face" (Chapstick) for the kids to access easily.

I used the same kind of tray for Sophie's hair accessories.  So simple!

  1. Super smart! Right now our organizers are just in the kitchen organizing the actual silverware, but that makes total sense to use them in the bathroom too! Just stopping by to pin this, and to let you know I featured it on my blog today!
