Before I even say anything else, I think you need to see this closet before the cleaning closet organization makeover...

YIKES! There was really no method to this madness but there needed to be because 1) I mean look at it... and 2) I was running out of places to put things.

I have lived in my apartment for over a year now so I have a really good grasp on what I wanted to include in here. I already have my other decor closet in my laundry room which allowed this closet to really focus on the "cleaning" aspect of my life.

I needed this closet to store:

  • Cleaning supplies
  • Medicine
  • Candles
  • Extra Store Bags
  • Extra Paper Towels/Toilet Paper

It really is crazy how much more your life feels so much more together with a simple organization spree.

I was also able to fit everything I need in here and still have room.

Here's where I got everything from and my favorite hacks for my cleaning closet organization...

I live in Wisconsin so it is extremely common to keep any grocery bag you get for the winter to haul your snow boots in. It's a real thing ;). Since I've done that my entire life, I have it instilled in me that you keep any and every bag you receive. 

For awhile there, I was just throwing these bags on the ground and it was a hot mess. I ended up getting this cute striped basket for $12.99 at HomeGoods. I shove it in there and it stores it perfectly while looking a whole better.

My O-Cedar mop sits next to it (which, btw, is the best mop EVER!).

This is one of my favorite little hacks. I ordered these black command strip hooks from Amazon. Renter-friendly hack and a million times better than all of these sitting on the ground.

These white containers are my absolute favorite. I use them EVERYWHERE in my apartment. Literally everywhere.

They're only $5 (or less) and come in all different sizes. Here's the link to the white containers.

These turntables are the best and another organization product I use throughout my entire apartment.

This is the clear turntable I used for my medicine.

Paper towels and extra toilet paper have their home at the top of the closet. 

...and thats exactly how I organized my cleaning closet.
