Whether mornings at your vanity mean the perfect blowout, contouring your makeup, or barely combing your hair and brushing your teeth, it's the space where you begin your day. Keep it organized to feel a sense of calm instead of clutter. None of us are about to raise our hand to say getting ready in a messy space feels good, so don't be that girl.

Keep only a few items on your vanity or around your bathroom sink. Hair blowers, flat-irons, other hair care tools, makeup and jewelry should have their own designated spaces and there are plenty of storage solutions for those items. Scattered on your vanity isn't one of them.

For my favorite perfumes and fresh flowers, I like to display them on a pretty trays. We sell a lot of trays on The Organizing Store and the Jaye's Studio black cane tray we are giving away today is one of them. I also keep a catchall tray on my nightstand for water and to put my earrings when I take them off at night.
