Organization is key – so is cleaning, storage, gardening, and more. In this series, you’ll learn various tips and tricks to make gardening, grilling and even sewing easier. No matter the problem, there’s a Home Hack for that!

Whether you love it or hate it, organizing your home is essential if you want to keep track of your belongings and be able to access your everyday must-haves easily. And while getting your kitchen and closets to look like they belong on a Pinterest board may be something you aim for, organizing your bathroom probably doesn’t spark joy in the same way.

If you’re no stranger to cluttered bathroom cabinets and unruly drawers, you’re not alone, which is why we’re sharing a few creative hacks that you can use to tidy up your bathroom quickly — see them in action in the video above!

For starters, there are a ton of great ways to use containers you may already have at home to keep things organized in the bathroom.

Try putting your extra toilet paper rolls in any container you like (instead of just tossing them under the sink or on top of the toilet tank). You can also use extra spice racks to tidy up your small products, like bottles of vitamins or nail polish. Whether you decide to mount the racks on your walls or inside a cabinet is up to you. And if you really want to go the extra mile and organize your makeup products while you’re at it, glue little magnets to the back of your must-haves and arrange them on a metal cookie sheet that can be left out or tucked away.

However, if you’d rather start with fresh new organizational tools, we’ve compiled a couple of our favorite bathroom organizers from The Container Store below to get you started.

  • Disney World attraction malfunctions in viral video, leads to hilarious memes

    Just a few days before Disney World enters its phased reopening on July 11, one particular attraction at the theme park seems to have gone rogue.On July 8, CinemaBlend reported that the park had conducted a test of its Carousel of Progress attraction at Tomorrowland.where its main animatronic character John recently appeared to spaz out on stage.An 18-second clip of that moment surfaced on Twitter, where it promptly led to some hysterical meme.“John clearly hasn’t been rehearsing during his vacation time,” the Magic Blitz Podcast joked on the social media platform.Several users took the opportunity to set the clip against some audio. One person, shared the clip set against rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s single “GOOBA”.All of this is to say that the pandemic, which temporarily shut down Disney’s attractions, clearly took a toll on poor John.But under Disney’s reopening guidelines (along with a bit of repair), the animatronic will hopefully be able to see new life again
