to help you manage stress and boost your health by learning the principles of banishing clutter and restoring a sense of order to your world.
When was the last time you cleaned your medicine cabinet? It's likely been a while, huh? Well, there's no time better than the present to get it done. Even though you're probably not in a rush to take on this job, it's beneficial to do so.
"The bathroom medicine cabinet is probably one of the most accessed spots in the house, so it's worth taking the time to get this space neat and orderly," says MaryJo Monroe, a professional organizer at reSPACEd. Plus, it doesn’t take much time. "This tiny spot is easy to organize in less than an hour, making it a manageable project for everyone," Monroe says.

Even better, getting your medicine cabinet in order doesn't cost much. These inexpensive yet efficient products can help you get (and keep) your medicine cabinet neat and organized.
Acrylic Edge Stackable Boxes
Square-sided acrylic boxes are great to corral tiny items together on narrow shelves, Monroe says. These boxes are available in a three-compartment bin and a larger box. The sectioned bin makes it easy to store smaller stuff like hair accessories and cotton balls by category. The larger box makes a good home for bulkier or longer items like makeup brushes and combs. The cool thing is these boxes can be stacked together, used individually or under a lidded box. So buy one, two or several. (Psst! Amazon shoppers are obsessed with these life-changing organizing products for the rest of the home.)

10 silent signals you're way too stressed:
Carlisle 5526-8107 Stackable Shatter-Resistant Plastic Tumbler, 8 oz.
If cups, rather than boxes, are more your thing, feel free to grab some products usually designated for the kitchen. “I have used clear, plastic drinking glasses to hold perfume samples, contact lens products or men’s razors,” Monroe says. She recommends avoiding glass containers in the medicine cabinet because they can fall and shatter in your sink. These plastic tumblers are resistant to breaking, so no worries about that. They’re also easy to clean (just wash in soapy water or pop them in the dishwasher). The texturized pebble look adds a little splash to your décor while still allowing you to see what’s inside. These tumblers come in a set of six, so you have plenty to store and categorize different items.

CASAFE+ Wall Mounted Toothbrush Holder Toothpaste Holder Stand
Where do you store your toothbrush? If it’s on the sink, you should probably reconsider. “I always recommend toothbrushes be in a closed area so the toilet ‘splash’ particles don't get on them,” says Heather Clark, a professional declutterer and owner of Home & Office Detox.
To maximize vertical space, reposition shelves or remove one to make room for these taller items. Though your toothbrush and toothpaste will take up more room lengthwise, that doesn’t mean you need a bulky holder that will also consume tons of horizontal space. These small holders provide an area to house your toothbrushes and toothpaste without taking up a lot of space. They are adhesive and simple to mount to your cabinet wall, and they’re suitable for all types of toothbrushes and toothpastes, including electric toothbrushes. A bonus: The holders are stainless steel, so they’re rust-free and easy to clean.
