Melanie C. Fascitelli is the founder of clos-ette a high-end, holistic organizational design company which focuses on design, build and styling for large wardrobes, closets and dressing room spaces. She also penned the amazing organizational book, Shop Your Closet: The Ultimate Guide to Organizing Your Closet with Style (if you haven’t read it, you must get a copy – it will change your closet!).

Being an expert “declutterer,” I asked my dear friend Melanie to give us some bathroom/ beauty advice. Here’s what she had to say: “It’s important to remember that bathrooms are like any other dressed up storage room in your house, they can either make your life easier or a living hell. Keeping one’s bathroom organized, edited and uncluttered allows you to get dressed with ease and comfort and that is an invaluable asset of any bathroom.”
