In our master bathroom, there is a very small closet with bifold doors. For the longest time, I had it abandoned and cluttered. But I set myself a goal to get it organized, and it was done in just under 45 minutes. It is not perfect or beautiful, but it’s functional. And thanks to the labels, I can find everything faster now.

Organizing this bathroom closet was so easy that I almost didn’t write this post. But before and after projects are exciting and inspiring,  and I wanted to create the free printable labels so you can organize your bathroom’s closet, too!

Here are some tips and ideas on organizing a bathroom closet. At the end of the post, you can sign up to download the free printable labels for your bathroom containers!

Our Bathroom Closet Before

I have neglected my bathroom closet for a long time. In my defense, I only open it twice or three times a week when I need to get -or put away- clean towels and when I need my hairdryer or flat iron.

Yes, it drove me crazy, but I always closed it quickly and moved on to something else. Finally, I decluttered and cleaned the closet, corralled things in baskets, and put my new bathroom labels on the baskets. Now, the bathroom closet is organized and functional.

My bathroom labels aren’t paper labels but little chalkboard signs I found at Michael’s. But I recreated a free set of printable bathroom labels for you. You can find them in our Free Printables Library

Baskets I Used to Organize the Bathroom Closet

Storage baskets are my all-time favorite items for organizing. I probably have more baskets at home than items to store in them. Baskets are functional; they corral things, especially keeping small items from tipping over and/or falling through the cracks if you have wire shelving, as I do.

By the way, if you hate wire shelving, I have a tutorial on how to cover those ugly wire shelves!

One morning I walked into Michael’s and found all the baskets in stock buy one, get one free.

When buying baskets, consider the function you’re giving them, and always measure the space to ensure it’s a good fit. You probably won’t need to measure if you have a good idea of what you’re looking for and a good eye for dimensions. I knew I wanted deep baskets to fit as many towels as possible, but they also had to be narrow to fit in the tight closet space.

The Decluttering Process

My first rule for decluttering and organizing is to clear the space completely and begin with a fresh start. I find it impossible to work when there is a mess around me. In other cases, I have opted to work in sections, allowing 15 to 30 minutes of decluttering and organization.

I placed the entire closet’s content on top of a bed and sorted all items into four main groups:

  1. Keep
  2. Donate
  3. Toss
  4. Relocate

This is a very small closet, and it was an easy project to tackle, so I sorted all the items in minutes. However, if you have a big closet (or room) to tackle, you may want to use my free printable guide for organizing your home.

Organizing a Very Small Closet

The more space you have, the more stuff you accumulate. So, I’ve decided to stop complaining about the lack of space and commit to decluttering more frequently. This closet had too many things I didn’t need and other things that did not belong there.

  • Four bathrobes. I donated three and kept 1.
  • Old washcloths that have seen better days. Toss.
  • Five towels that we never used. Donated.
  • Three old makeup bags. Tossed, donated.
  • Decorative votives and candles. Relocated.
  • Beach towel. Relocated.
  • Makeup mirror with light. I never used it and never will. Donated.

Now, almost half of the closet contents are gone. I limited the closet to:

  • Towels (hand, bath, washcloths, guest towels).
  • Hair styling tools.
  • Manicure and pedicure tools.
  • Cleaning products and other supplies.

I also store some cleaning products upstairs for quick cleanup. Inside a shallow basket, on the top shelf of this closet, I keep disinfecting wipes, multi-surface cleaners, carpet cleaners, fabric deodorizers, and lint rollers. I store toiletries in the cabinet under the sink.

Free Printable Bathroom Labels

I fell in love with these chalkboard clothespins from Michael’s. Unfortunately, they’re not available at this time, but these chalkboard hang tags, could work too!

Labeling these baskets was a piece of cake. But, because I can not give each and every one of you a package of these, I figured I would make similar bathroom labels, a free printable for you to download.

After printing and cutting, punch a hole and hang them. You can also stick them to the baskets with double-sided tape or, if you’re feeling crafty, replicate them by printing them on heavy cardstock and gluing small clothespins to the back of the label.
