project organize: first baby steps

At first glance, my apartment looks pretty good. I mean, I'll never be satisfied with it, but it's generally pretty tidy and calming and seemingly 'put together'. I have a dirty secret though. Look in my drawers and cabinets and you will find this:

The bathroom cabinet is next on the list, but this one is tricky. It's super deep (18 inches to be exact) so I need solutions that will allow me to access the stuff at the back easily while keeping each bin from becoming a "catch-all" (aka dump bucket), and making sure that the taller items don't just fall over when I pull the bin out. Been doing a lot of research, but no perfect option so far. The only solution? MORE RESEARCH.
