Works For Me Wednesday - Organizing the Kids Bathroom Toiletries

Join us at We are THAT Family for more Works For Me Wednesday posts.

In our house the most used bathroom in the house is the kid's bathroom.  You know how a bathroom used exclusively by kids can get, and unfortunately it's the one that guests use when they come over, so I like to keep it as clean and neat as I possibly can.

Several weeks ago I noticed that it was getting way too cluttered.  Each of my kids like a different type of toothpaste, they each have their own deodorant, along with several other toiletries and all of these things had taken up permanent residency on our bathroom sink.  I knew there had to be a better way to store all of these items.

So I went to the Dollar Tree (don't you just love that store) and bought four of these handy little containers.


I wrote each kids name on the end of their container and gave it to them to fll with their toiletries.


The containers stack neatly on top of each other or they can take them to their rooms with them and bring them into the bathroom only when they need them.  Another added benefit for us is that when we start camping this summer there will be no need for them to pack up their toiletries, all they have to do is carry their container out to the camper and put them in their drawer.
