I share my bathroom with a big mister and two little misters. Our stuff seems to slowly take over everything and any sort of organization usually gets thrown out the window. I also am a self-proclaimed toilet paper ignorer and rarely replace the toilet paper unless it is somewhere that is easily accessible. Making the most of our space (and keeping the toilet paper in sight) is a big priority and finding a better way to utilize our bathroom linen closet is the first stop.
My linen closet leaves much to be desired. When closed, the doors are pretty plantation ones, but when they creak open, inside is an organization disaster. Discolored and overused towels are falling over and while I have some organizational pieces, none of it is put together very well.
For the first step of my mini makeover, I headed to Target to get some essentials!
In addition to a few organizational finds from the infamous DollarSpot, I also snagged some Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper. Scott Tube-Free toilet paper is just like a regular toilet paper roll, but doesn’t produce the additional garbage that a toilet paper roll does. Once you’ve taken a look at my closet, then you know the less waste, the better! Plus, the fact that they lack a roll comes in handy for storage purposes!
I started with this container that I found around my house and opted to start my mini makeover.
All four rolls from my 4-pack fit inside this box and I was able to smush the rolls to fit them all in, making it easy to organize and store! Even after being smushed, they are easily popped up for adding to the toilet paper roll.
My next step was to tackle the contact paper. Since we rent our home, I didn’t want to remove the current contact paper or cover it, so I found a roll of drawer liner and used it to cover the bottom – creating a non-slip, covered surface.
Some of the green be gone!
With just a few simple changes, I could immediately see the organization stacking up. I rearranged some of the boxes, fixed the contents inside of them, and utilize small containers for makeup brushes and mini cups and milk jug bottles for storing essentials such as cotton balls and q-tips. These containers provide some fun storage while also showing me exactly what’s inside. No confusion there!
Next, I added my toilet paper storage and by storing upright, I utilize the vertical space better, make it appealing to the eye and by turning it straight to the door, I knew I would never have an excuse to not replace it!
The boys are of the ages now that they can help a bit around the house with chores and their own hygiene. Using these small containers with handles and a fun plastic insert inside for additional storage, each boy has his own caddy complete with bath paint, body wash, kids’ cologne, their toothbrush and toothpaste. I also placed a Scott Naturals Tube-Free roll of toilet paper in the side so that they can also replace the toilet paper when it comes up empty!
To add our daily checklist, I used chalkboard clothespins, added one for each child, and used a small dot of super glue to adhere to the wall. Perfect for a renting situation when you do not necessarily want to add a permanent fixture to the wall.
The Daily Checklist is simple and includes all of the essentials. I’ve even created a printable for you to have for yourself!

Once printed off, I laminated them and added them under the clothespins. It’s the perfect space for reminders and love notes as well! Each day, the boys can grab their caddy, finish their daily checklist and even help with toilet paper replacement!
Once I’ve finished my kids’ station, I’m ready to put the finishing touches on my mini makeover for my linen closet.
Creating the perfect bathroom spaces starts with the essentials like toilet paper! Find those pieces and put them together for a space that suits your needs, saves you space, minimizes waste, and gives you a clear picture of what you’re working with.
Hopefully, these caddies will help keep my little Misters out of mischief.
