Contain the everyday items

The Star Tribune shared 5 efficient bathroom-storage tips in the Home Section this past weekend.  It mentioned the idea of clearing the counters, but keeping the daily items out.  I like this idea and wanted to offer a few simple ways you can contain the items to keep the counter tidy.

Here are some options from Target, but I suggest you look around the the house before you buy.  You might have an old basket or magazine tray that you can reuse in the bathroom.IMG_4552

Whether this space has to function for the whole family or it is a master bath, decluttering this area can create a more efficient, serene space.

Happy tidying!
