Organizing Your Bathroom to Prevent Any "Fishing" Incidents

It's likely you walk into your bathroom at least twice a day. It may be a small room, but it is quite mighty in function and need. With its grand responsibiliy, it too needs to be organized.

Your items are scattered about on the countertop, waiting to handle your dry skin, make your hair shine, whiten your teeth and avoid that embarrassing wetspot under your arms. All those items are ready for action, though at times you grab one and 2 others begin to tumble over, knocking over your toothbrush into the toilet and ... well, big bummer start to your day.

Jeffrey and Michael had just too much stuff scattered about on the countertop. The boys were constantly knocking items all over the place.

Sure there was LOTS of space under the sink, but that would require them to open a door, bend over and search for the toothpaste, hair gels, then all of these steps in reverse to get items put away ... Yeah, right!

Solution: Get a great little over the toilet cabinet to store these needed items. There is a great little open shelf for every day needed supplies and cabinet shelving that puts their stuff smack-dab in their face (still no guarantee that they will not see extra rolls of toilet paper sitting on the shelf)

Now, there is the risk of items falling into the toilet with the cabinet. Though, the boys' mom was already an experienced bathroom fisherman with the items tumbling off the countertop. And I am happy to report that there have been no fishing incidences in the past month (hooray).

If you're looking to get your bathroom a bit more organized, think about an over the toilet shelving unit. The one pictured was purchased at Bed, Bath & Beyond for under $50 with BBB famous 20% off coupon. Sweet!

What have you had to "fish" out of your toilet?

The only thing I've ever dropped in my toilet was the rag I was using to clean the outside. Gross.

Those over-the-toilet organizer things are cool! And good price!

@Laura - dropping anything in the toilet never comes out good. On the Facebook Fan page, people mentioned sunglasses and cellphone which were tossed out, too. Enjoy the day!
