I'm not a fan of all the packaging bathroom essentials come in. When I'm getting ready to go out, or washing up at the end of the day, I don't particularly want to be rifling through that annoying slider box thing that q-tips come in, or trying to pull cotton pads out of that really skinny plastic sleeve. Gets so old. I also really don't like using a makeup bag. Those things get so unavoidably grimy and dirty. Plus, I never take makeup with me when I leave the house (I usually forget but it's probably also laziness!), so I really prefer to just leave what I need exactly where I can find it instead of throwing it all together. So I started keeping the glass jars that food comes in (salsa, pickles, etc.), and I use them for EVERYTHING. But I'm just covering my bathroom today :) Here are a few photos:
|So much handier! (and nicer to look at!)|
|(This is also good for keeping your makeup brushes in tact!)|
If you're feeling a little fancy (I was), you can add different but cohesive bracelets to the jars. I'm also a big fan of keeping flowers in the bathroom. Even the top of the toilet tank needs some attention!

Last but not least, something every bathroom needs:
|NEVER forget the tealights! ;)|
