Happy organization month! Being organized just makes me happy. I love to open a cabinet or a drawer and see order. It is a huge bonus if the organized area looks beautiful too!
After packing away all of our Christmas decorations in the most organized way possible, I always feel inspired to organize a few additional spots. First on my list, my nightstand organization project.
Since my nightstand can end up becoming a gathering place for random items, I knew I needed a better system. I think I came up with a good one and I want to share it with you today.

I am a huge fan of using clear bins for organizing. There is no better way to keep your items neat, tidy, and easily accessible. I previously had a few small bins in my nightstand, but the sizes were wrong and they were too shallow.
For this project, I purchased The Home Edit 10 Piece Bath Edit. It is a collection of modular clear plastic containers that are perfect for drawers. The containers are incredibly versatile and priced at only $24.98 for the whole set. Yes, it is called “the bath edit set” and it would definitely work well in a bathroom, but it is ideal for your nightstand.
I started by emptying my drawer. You really can’t properly proceed with an organization project without clearing everything out first. Of course, organizing and cleaning go hand in hand, so I wiped down the drawer while it was empty.
Next, I sorted the contents. Boy, were there a lot of things in there that shouldn’t have been! I made a few piles (bathroom things, office things, kitchen things, etc.) to put away. I then discarded the items that were no longer needed.
Next, I put the clear containers into the drawer. The set I bought is sturdy and I love the depth. FYI, they are stackable too, which is great for other uses.
Finally, I added my nighttime necessities.
- Add clear containers
The set includes:
- 3 Large Insert Bins – 9.37” x 4.68” x 2.95”
- 4 Medium Insert Bins – 6.24” x 4.68” x 2.95”
- 3 Small Insert Bins – 9.37” x 4.68” x 2.95”
I filled my bins with these essentials:
- Skin care favorites
- Lip balm
- Reading glasses
- Trinket dish
- Silk sleep masks
- Makeup wipes
- Small candles
- Pain relievers
- Silk hair ties
- Hair clips
- Phone charger
And now I don’t mind if my drawer gets left open!
Here is the set I used filled with bathroom items:
