A bathroom organization tip

I recently read about some organization tips for the home and I wanted to share one of them with you today.  I will apologize in advance for the quality of photos. I tried with and without a flash and just couldn't get it right this time. It may have something to do with the lighting in our bathroom.

Do you have multiple accessories lying around like metal nail files, nail clippers, tweezers, scissors, etc? If you do, you probably have them stuffed into drawers or containers like this...

In our little house, storage space is at a premium, especially in the bathroom.  We have no drawers and very limited shelving space.  So, I was thrilled when I read about this neat little tip.  Are you ready?  Here it is...
Magnetic tape!  This stuff is worth its weight in gold, and then some.  You can usually find it at a hardware store and it's available in different widths.  We got the thinner width, not realizing exactly what we would need.

Cut the tape to whatever length you need, using as many strips as you need, and affix it to the inside of your medicine cabinet door. And then...

start organizing those metal accessories!  Isn't that a great tip? Everything located within reach and within sight. No more digging through drawers and containers.  I just love this idea!  Do you have any other easy organization tips to share?

Stay tuned for another organization tip...this one for the kitchen!

Icebear, we actually have our kitchen knives on magnetic boards too. I had forgotten about that! Glad you liked the tip.

Very nice tip. Seems like everytime I organize a drawer something stashes things that do not belong in there. Can't figure out what it is...husband and daughter claim innocence (but I have my doubts).
