Organizing in the bathroom:

Here are some great ways to organize your bathroom!

I have such a small bathroom, and it’s awful. Anything that makes my morning more smooth when getting ready would be great! Here are some inspiring things that pinterest has shared with me 🙂

Genius :)- Love this idea. You can put anything in a glass/plastic container for your makeup brushes. Although, I do not have a lot of counter space so this will not be happening until I move. I think cheap beads that you have laying around will work. I also think you can buy a big bag of blingy type beads/ pieces at hobby lobby. Stones that you would usually use in a fish thank would work well too. (Those clear ones)

Under my sink is gross. I have just the regular cabinet bottom that looks old and gross.Sticking cheap peel and stick tile there instead is genius. I actually found a box of it at the dollar store, but home depot and all those home stores have it as well. It’s about a buck a tile, but makes cleaning so much easier! Just wipe it down when it gets dirty. Love this! A must try for me!

This is a perfect idea to hang your tooth brushes. If your like me and don’t have a lot of counter top space this is wonderful. Pick up some magnets at Hobby Lobby or a craft store. Adhere a magnet on the back of your tooth brush,and then connect them to row of magnets that you create. No more tooth brushes laying around your counter! Like this!

I hate hate my straightener laying out on the counter. Not only is it in the way,but its an eye soar. This is great! Use hook-and-loop tape to attach 5-in. lengths of 2-in.- diameter PVC pipe to the vanity door to hold the curling irons. Do the same thing with 3-in. pieces of 1-1/2-in.-diameter pipe to hold the cords. Just measure your curling irons to see how long your “holsters” need to be. Let your curling irons cool before you stow them away.

These shoe organizers are my favorite way to organize. I have never thought of using it in the bathroom. Hang one on the back of your door and put all your bathroom needs in the pockets! It’s awesome for small bathrooms with little to no storage space! (It’s also a great organizer for your cleaning closet! I bought one for my cleaning closet and it does wonders!)

& Last but not least…

This is great! I found the website where to buy the plastic things at (http://www.stickonpods.com/) I haven’t looked around really but maybe you can find them even cheaper some where else? Anyways, I think this a wonderful way to organize your make-up and things. I have the smallest storage ever in my bathroom. Using the cabinet door is wonderful!! Will need to order a few of these soon!

Hope you enjoyed a few ways to mellow out the chaos of your bathroom. I sure can use these tips 🙂

Cream of [Insert Variety Here] Soup

When I saw this I was so excited. (I’m such a dork) But I use cream of mushroom, and cream of chicken in a lot of my recipes! Including a lot in my crock-pot things. So this was so exciting to see. I’m making my batch tomorrow!!

Saw this on: http://dancesdishesanddreams.blogspot.com/2011/09/cream-of-insert-variety-here-soup.html

She is a genious for coming up with this! I will let you know how it goes when I make mine!

What you need:

2 Cups nonfat dry milk powder

3/4 Cup cornstarch

2 Tbsp. dried onion

1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

1/4 Cup chicken bouillon powder/granules

1 tsp. basil

1/4 tsp. thyme

1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Place all in container (air tight) and shake up!

To use:

Combine 1/3 cup of dry mix with 1 1/4 cups of water in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat and stir until thickened.

She said for convience she labled her container with a sharpie, and put it one of those lock and seal containers. (love those!)

Although this may take a bit longer than just opening up a can of of it, I bet it taste way better! Also the convience of always having it on hand will be handy! I especially like how affordable it is to make! WOO HOO for cream of whatever mix! Love this.
