If you're hoping to have less clutter, you're not alone. But often, the hardest part of organizing a mess is just knowing where to start. Consider this a sign: Start with your bathroom drawer organization.

These are the spaces that hold makeup, brushes, lotions, and teeth cleaning essentials — basically, all of the toiletries you use every single day. And if this space looks like you've been throwing things wherever they'll fit for far too long, it's time to make it right. Not only will better organization help you find things faster when you're getting ready, but you'll also be able to keep these products cleaner (say goodbye to makeup residue all over everything).
