5 Ways to Maximize Bathroom Storage Space

Purge, Consolidate and Organize

You can't always buy a solution to the problem of finding enough storage space. Keeping bathroom clutter to a minimum, corralling like items so you know where they are when you need them and getting rid of what you don't use are all part of an efficient bathroom storage strategy. Rotating seasonal items to another room can be a space-saver, too. After all, when there's snow on the windowsill, do you really need four bottles of sunscreen in your medicine cabinet?

Taking a quarterly bathroom inventory can help you get rid of expired prescriptions, crusty lipsticks, dull razors and all the other by-products of an active and stylish lifestyle. Just think of all the space you'll free up for other things.
