$6 and 15 Minutes

That's all it took to solve a nagging organizational issue in my bathroom closet, that I've been mulling over for a year.  I've been debating multiple solutions to keep things in their places, but haven't wanted to invest in anything, since we'll just pack up in a year.  It's so easy not to use that excuse not to make decisions or really set up a living space in a way I'd fully enjoy it.  I just tell myself I can deal with it temporarily.

Except, by that logic, then my entire life becomes temporary, because there's always going to be another move on the horizon.

So, last weekend I decided I should take hold of a few of the temporary spaces that nag me.  The trick then becomes to find organizational items that are multifunctional (i.e., not specific to the space needed right here and now) and not too expensive (i.e., probably not from the Container Store, as much as I LOVE that store).

Thankfully, Target had some wire bins on sale for $3 each.  I bought two.  Results below, which only took 15 minutes of rearranging things.  It won't be winning any closet organization awards, but, in the interest of not letting the perfect be the enemy of the good, at least my bathroom closet doesn't feel temporary anymore.
