Confession time: Keeping your bathroom cabinets organized is easier said than done. Trust me, I should know. While I’d like to think I’m a generally tidy person, the bathroom is my Achilles’ heel.

The bathroom in my old apartment in New York City featured three medicine cabinets, which I filled to the brim with surplus shampoo bottles, curling irons I never used, and my skincare essentials. I cannot tell you how many times opening one of the cabinets would result in a full-blown cosmetics avalanche, with some of my products plopping into my toilet. (I know, ew.)

Now, the bathroom in my new apartment features two spacious cabinets: One for me and one for my live-in boyfriend. But while my boyfriend’s cabinet is a KonMari dream, mine is a chaotic mess of lotions, potions, jewelry, hair accessories...must I go on? Not only does my clutter make it difficult to get ready each morning, but I’ve also been forced to put some of my excess products in my boyfriend’s cabinet. (Sorry!)

But when finding a new razorhead became Mission:Impossible, I knew it was time to make a change. Out of desperation, I stumbled upon Seseno’s organization bins—and it’s been a game-changer for my bathroom storage. 

Admittedly, Seseno’s bins aren’t reinventing the wheel—but that’s exactly what makes them so great. Made with a shatter-resistant, BPA-free plastic, each set features two sizes: A wide style for larger spaces and a narrow option for slim nooks and crannies. While Seseno’s larger bins are perfect for storing bulky items like my hair dryer or sunglasses collection, I use the smaller containers for my skincare products and those razorheads that were once borderline impossible to find. Plus, each bin is completely transparent so you can actually see what’s lurking inside.

Are the contents of each bin organized to perfection? Absolutely not. (I mean, I’m human.) However, simply grouping and organized all my grooming essentials by category has streamlined the time spent in my bathroom. Whether I want to accessorize an outfit with my favorite statement earrings or want to wind down with a face mask, I can find everything I need in a few seconds.

Best of all, Seseno’s bins are available on Amazon Prime. So if you want to get your bathroom cabinets—or any cabinets really—into tip-top shape, the solution is just a click and two days away.
