If you have storage space in your bathroom, check that out and take out things you don’t use. This is also good if you stockpile any toiletries–you can see what else you need!
  3. Replace the things you use. If you need more storage, you can see what and where you can put it. Then you can try to find containers to reuse before you go and buy items. Some ideas:
