Organizing the Hot Spots
There are certain hotspots in most homes, and that includes bathroom and kitchen sinks. Vanities or cabinets just don’t have enough drawers, and under the sink is just one big open space that gets easily disorganized. The basic problem is usually lots of little things in a really big space, that isn’t all that easy to organize because of the plumbing and pipes that get in the way.
I’ll always try to organize using things on hand first, but this is one situation where a new gadget is almost always the best answer. It’s too hard to see into bags like the ones shown here, and things just end up getting lost and forgotten.
Bed Bath and Beyond is my favorite place to get these great stacking drawers made specifically for this space, although you can find them elsewhere. The key is to get ones that are preferably made of metal and are heavy duty enough to hold your gear. Ideally they should screw down into each other and the cabinet itself.
What a difference in just a few minutes. You could stack taller items, like cleaners or shampoo bottles in the top rack. And you still have plenty of space on the side for paper goods and travel bags. The built-in dividers made these drawers easy to keep little personal items corralled and off the counter.
