Wouldn’t you like to get a year and half added back on your life? You could if you stayed out of the bathroom. That is just about how much time the average person uses up in the commode. Obviously, there are some necessary functions that need to be taken care of but an hour a day? Surely, there must be a better way? Of course, there is. It is time to learn some great hacks to save time, money and help you organize even in the bathroom. Even if you save a few minutes from searching for what you need or cleaning the shower stall, you can put that time to more productive use. See how many of these you can put into action:

  • Before Showering, Hang Your Wrinkled Clothes In The Bathroom

The steam from the shower will smooth out the wrinkles and cut down on your ironing time. More time is more time!

  • Add Magnets

A magnet strip on the inside of your medicine cabinet is great to hanging tweezers and bobby pins. A bigger magnet board in a frame can help organize makeup. If it’s metal, it can be magnetized.

  • Consider A Second Shower Rod

You can easily install a second retractable type of shower rod in your stall. Hang it along the way and you’ve got a terrific spot to hang things like wash clothes, shampoo caddies and sponges.

  • Brush Attachment For A Power Drill

Instead of wearing yourself out with scrubbing the tile, use a brush attachment for a cordless power drill and watch the soap scum vanish.

  • Use Spice Racks For Shampoos

If you’re working with a lot of shampoos and conditioners, then a couple of single shelf spice racks attached to a wall is a perfect organizer. Just make sure those shelves are wide enough for your bottles.
