Cleaning and organizing are different tasks, but the two often go hand in hand, and for good reason: Organized spaces are just easier to clean than those that are cluttered with things everywhere.
Nowhere is this more true than in the bathroom, where airborne particles from hairspray to toilet clouds settle on surfaces and where high levels of moisture and fluctuating temperatures create a breeding ground for bacteria. Taking the time to clear out and organize the bathroom pays off across the board when keeping that space clean is cleaner and less labor intensive.
With the help of organizational expert Lisa Kron, who started Smallish Home to document the process of making her little home functional and stylish (check out her addicting TikTok videos!), And Rachel Rosenthal, owner of Rachel and Company , a professional organization firm based in Washington, DC, we have selected 20 top-rated bathroom organizers, all of which are priced at $ 20 and under.
When your bathroom lacks storage space like shelves, drawers, towel rails, etc., finding a place for all of your belongings can be a big challenge. These organizers offer solutions.
Exilot Slim storage trolley
There are so many uses to a rolling storage cart that we couldn’t possibly list them all here – a bathroom can hold toilet paper, hair styling tools, cosmetics, and toiletries. The list is really endless. This storage trolley has a smaller footprint than comparable models and is therefore perfect for bathrooms with limited space.

White Nordic storage baskets with handles
If towel storage space is limited, lidded containers or baskets should be considered. Rosenthal says: “I love these white baskets because they have lids that are great for stacking them in different places.” Opt for models with lids to prevent clean towels from getting dirty when not in use.
Project 62 Small felt basket with seams
Kron calls these felt baskets “perfect for organizing towels and washcloths” in the bathroom, but they can be used to store many other things, from first aid items to hair accessories. The felt baskets are available in two colors: oat flakes and dark gray. There are cut-out handles on the side that make it easier to grasp or carry.
4-part marble organizer tray
Keeping frequently used items like toothpaste, face creams, makeup wipes, and more in one easy-to-reach place is a smart way to speed up prep. However, a messed up pile of these items looks bad and makes cleaning a hassle. Clean up the look of your vanity with this four compartment marble organizer that can hold everything from makeup brushes to a bottle of daily vitamins.
Another clever way to increase storage in bathrooms is to use vertical spaces. With these hanging and wall-mounted storage units, you can maximize the normally unused wall space to free up space for your belongings.
Y & ME YM bathroom shelf with towel holder set
This wall-mounted bathroom organizer has a towel rack for towels or a bath towel and sits just below two shelves large enough to store toiletries, tissues, extra toilet paper, etc. It is available in white and three wood variants.
KES towel holder for wall mounting
Another versatile towel storage solution is a wall shelf with hooks that can be used to hang bath towels, bathrobes, hair packs and more to keep them out of the way when not in use.
Command hair dryer holder
The vertical wall area is also a great place to install a wall mounted hairdryer holder. This affordable, holster-style caddy uses 3M’s Command tape to attach the device to the wall. Therefore, no hardware is required for installation and the walls will not be damaged.
Tooletries toiletry wall organizer
This waterproof toiletries organizer has a self-adhesive backing that allows you to mount it on glass (including mirrors), drywall, or tile to store small items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, and razors. It’s made of antibacterial silicone and the bottom has drainage holes to prevent mold from developing.
Wall mounted floating shelves in Sriwatana
Floating shelves are a great choice in any room for creating storage space where there isn’t one. They come in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles and are relatively easy to install. This set of three white U-shaped shelves offers plenty of space for storing cosmetics and toiletries.
Medicine cabinets and drawers can easily turn into dark holes for your care and first aid staples to disappear into. Keep small and oddly shaped items organized in a small space with these smart solutions.

Expandable drawer dividers, set of 2
Very deep drawers can quickly lead to a clutter of items, from bandages to hair ties. That’s why Rosenthal recommends investing in an inexpensive set of drawer dividers to tame the clutter. “Drawer dividers are a great way to organize your drawers and keep everything in place,” she says. “We use them for everything!”
Daptsy Drawer Organizer Tray
Drawer organizer trays are typically associated with desks and trash drawers, but they don’t overlook how convenient they can be in a bathroom. Kron likes this inexpensive set of eight small organizers for felt drawers in different shapes and sizes, in which grooming tools, cosmetics, hair accessories, medicines and more can be stored.
mDesign Plastic Storage Organizer Bin, set of 2
The professional organizers we spoke to love the mDesign range of clear plastic storage bins for just about any room in the house. This slim container is sized to fit most standard medicine cabinet shelves. Each unit has eight compartments that hold vitamin and medicine bottles, first aid items, and more. The containers can also be used in the refrigerator to store things like medicines and skin care products that need to be kept cold.
The container store
Rosenthal suggests a surprising use for an item usually thought of as a pantry organizer. He says, “This tiered can rack is great for storing cans, but it can also be used in your bathroom or linen closet to store products.” The three-tier design makes it easy to find items in the back of a dark or crowded closet.
The space under the sink is a prime storage space, but all too often it turns into a jumble of cleaning products and hair styling tools due to the strange configuration of the space.
Copco Nonskid Cabinet Record Player
Kron says of this lazy little Susan-style turntable, “I use this everywhere.” She likes the turntable for storing cleaning products under the sink to maximize storage space and make it easy to get to the product you need, when you need it.
Command spray bottle holder, set of 2
Kron has another super intelligent way of organizing cleaning products under a sink: command hooks for spray bottles. The hooks are attached to the wall with adhesive tape so there is no hardware required for installation and no damage to the cabinets. The hooks can hold bottles up to 32 ounces or 2.5 pounds.
The container store
Madesmart Flip & Stack bin
Sometimes a super-simple storage container is the solution to organizing a tricky space. This stackable storage container is designed to nest when empty. It has handles with a soft grip that make it easier to grip or carry. Each container has an area that can be marked with a dry erase marker so that you can write on the contents.
When it comes to shower and bath storage, opt for metal styles whenever possible instead of plastic, which will develop mold and other bacterial growth faster than metal. And don’t forget that bathtubs need to be cleaned from time to time – most can be washed in the dishwasher!
Command stainless steel bathtub caddy
A disadvantage of suction cup style bathroom caddies is that the fluctuating temperatures and humidity levels that characterize a bathroom can cause the suction cup to detach from the wall it is attached to. Command’s adhesive strips are water-repellent, so the caddy stays securely in place without you having to poke holes in the walls.
Mind reader bamboo bathtub caddy
If you bathe frequently, a bathtub caddy can help you lead the most organized life! Use it while enjoying a bubble bath to hold a book or drink. It also doubles as a storage tray for soap, body wash, shampoo, and conditioner.
Youshangjia Black Corner shower cubicle
Corner shelves are a smart way to create storage space in a shower and keep the floor (and tub ledge, if you have it) free of shampoo and body wash bottles. This set of two black metal corner shelves uses self-adhesive tape and / or glue to attach the units to the wall of your shower and can hold up to 20 pounds.
Amazon Basics Bathroom Shower Caddy
A caddy over the shower head is as simple as possible – no screws or adhesives are required to install. Just hang it over the shower head and you’re done! This metal wire unit has a wide shelf for shampoo bottles, a soap holder that can hold most bars of soap, and hooks for shower stools and razors.
