If you're not convinced that garage sales are a great place to reorganize your space on a budget, then check out this adorable bathroom. You might remember the cute cottage that I've been helping a friend get organized on a budget. I forgot to take before pics of this bathroom (sorry), but the main thing it was lacking in was adequate storage. So, I went garage sale hunting in hopes of finding an affordable solution.
I found this great metal square shelving unit. I couldn't have drawn up a better solution than this and it only cost $10.00! I fitted it with several garage sale baskets and a cute floral box. I also added a splash of color with the yellow mug that houses q-tips. I love using non-traditional items for storage and at $.25 this was a no-brainer.
Instead of using valuable cabinet space for towels, I utilized a fairly large basket she already owned. I think it looks cute and is functional with towels rolled in it.
The bathroom already had a nice built-in linen closet. I made better use of the space by adding some plastic containers to keep items together. I simply used pencil boxes for make-up, hair accessories and manicure supplies. I also used plastic shoe boxes for hair products and baby care products to name a few. For about $15.00, I was able to make a cute bathroom function better for this sweet family.
