I use plastic organizer drawers all over my own house as well as in my clients' homes. They are among my favorite storage products and with good reason. Clear plastic storage drawers tend to be inexpensive, stackable, durable and easily accessible. They are stupendous (yes, stupendous!) for keeping small things orderly like bathroom items.

5 Reasons To Use Plastic Organizer Drawers For Your Bathroom Items

1. Bathroom or not.

With plastic drawers, you can keep your bathroom items organized no matter where they are in your home.

As you can see in the below photo, the plastic organizer drawers I use for my bathroom stuff are currently in my closet. Our bathroom is tiny and cannot house all of my stackable storage drawers, so I decided to employ an unused space that's nearby - the bottom of my closet.

Whether it's at the bottom of a clothing closet, under a bed, in a linen closet or anywhere else in your home, utilizing clear plastic storage drawers will keep your bathroom items neat and handy.

2. Find things easily.

Find things easily. I mean really in 5 seconds!

Whether I need something as big as my hair straightening iron, as teeny as a barrette or anything in between, I simply go to the "HAIR" drawers and reach in for the desired item. It doesn't get any easier than that!

Note that my drawers are labeled according to the category of items inside. I highly recommend this for quick recognition.

Plus, directing someone else to an item is just as easy. Let's say my husband asks me for some hand lotion. I can effortlessly tell him to look in the plastic drawer at the bottom of my closet labeled "LOTION," and that brings me to number 3.

3. Promote household organization.

This kind of storage solution promotes an organized lifestyle with your family members. It means you can tell other members of your home where to retrieve items as well as where to put them away. That means that they can never blame a mess or rogue items out of place, on not knowing where they belong. This in turn instills good habits and teaches your family how to be organized. Win - win - win!

4. Avoid the black hole of deep drawers or shelves.

Often I see clients trying to employ super deep drawers or shelves that require a flashlight in order to see the back. Naturally, small items like bathroom things get lost and jumbled very quickly in such spaces.

You can avoid that altogether and keep track of bathroom supplies, large and teeny weeny, with plastic stackable drawers.

Also as you can see in the photos, I prefer single plastic drawers that stack (mine are the ones from The Container Store but any plastic storage drawer that stacks should do). This way I can customize the way I stack them to fit any allotted amount of space. This is especially helpful if you move a lot, and that brings me to #5.

5. Moving is a snap.

Did I just say moving is easy?! Yep, you heard me correctly.

Whether it's switching rooms or moving into a new house entirely, relocating your bathroom items when they are organized in a plastic drawer storage solution like this is SO SIMPLE. These plastic drawers have moved with me 3 times and counting.

It is nothing more than packing the drawers into boxes and then unpacking them into your new space. Everything stays organized, and the only thing that needs to be done in the new home is configuring the way the drawers are stacked. Immediate organization - I love it!

BONUS: Use all of the vertical space under the sink.

Let's throw a bonus reason in for using plastic organizer drawers for your bathroom stuff! If you do employ them under the bathroom sink (which I highly recommend!), then you can use all of the vertical space on one or both sides of the pipe that hangs down. Since they are stackable, the drawers can be configured to the space available under your sink. This means that nothing will be lost in the back and all of that vertical space will be in play. Just wonderful.
