Is Your Medicine Cabinet Ridiculously Small?

Use acrylic drawer organizers (on top and middle shelves) to hold smaller items. Acrylic risers (middle shelf) create additional shelf space. Try putting your toothbrush holder without the lid in the cabinet to hold toothbrushes and other oral hygiene tools.

If you click on the image to get a larger view, you can see a shot glass behind the toothpaste holding small metal tools; tweezers, nail clippers, etc.

Awesome use of space. I never thought to use smaller containers in a medicine cabinet - this would seem to work well to prevent stuff from falling out (into to sink or worse into the toilet) when you open the cabinet.

Have I already missed where you show your make up in this apartment? Also, what about storing hair tools (blow dryer, flat iron, curling, iron). Those are the bane of my bathroom! We have two TINY bathrooms (nearly zero storage), and about to have a baby. Where to put everything now ... much less once children are grown up (we own and don't plan to move) are constantly on my mind. I don't think I could manage open shelves like yours, although yours look great!

These are great! Thanks so much for the photos and tips! I really try to keep things to a minimum ... but I am a hider (don't like to see anything out), and I am running out of places to hide things ha. Thanks again!

Good tip! I also use risers in the cupboard where I keep my plates and bowls.
