One blogger shows us the way.

If your bathroom medicine cabinet is anything like ours (a tidal wave of bobby pins and cosmetic tools just waiting to give way), you’re going to love this easy organizational hack from The Merry Thought blogger, Caitlin McGrath.

Her 2013 trick for keeping track of loose bathroom accessories (we’re looking at you, nail clippers!) was recently featured on Apartment Therapy, and we were struck by its brilliant simplicity. To be honest, it gave us a serious “why didn’t I think of that” moment. Luckily, she was more than willing to share her secret: magnets.

McGrath was able to transform her cluttered medicine cabinet into an organized paradise using only ceramic block magnets, floral fabric and Mod Podge. She offers a step-by-step guide on the blog, but basically all you have to do is cut a handful of shapes out of heavy-duty ceramic block magnets, Mod-Podge some floral fabric on top for a fun touch, and voila: the cutest, easiest organization system you ever did see!
