This might be kind of silly but Iím wondering what kind of set up you guys have in your shower to hold the products you want to try or what youíre going to use next?

Tbh I often change up what Iím using, itís nevee the same conditioner with every wash.
Sometimes I change up my shampoo multiple times in a week. Depending.
So for me, I have everything set up on a shelf next to the tub, but while Iím showering, itís a bit difficult to reach things, so now Iím ďselectingĒ what I want to use before I shower, then grabbing them and sticking what I picked in the caddy that hangs from the shower head. But now even this is getting cumbersome and I kind of want to make everything easily accessible while Iím in the shower lol

whats your set up?
do you pick out what you want to use before every wash? Lol

Things that are in "frequent use" (or that's how I like to think) are just stationed on the floor. Because of the stupid shower door things that look like some kind of capsule, I can't bother to have anything on the actual shelf I have there, besides it's so cold out there. Things that are not yet in use are just... somewhere in the house.

I have a cabinet in my bathroom where I keep all the products I'm not using and then I have a metal organizer with 2 shelves for all my current products. I also put stuff on the corners of the tub. Total I can fit 10ish bottles so I can decide in the moment. If it's not in my shower when I want to use it, as soon as I finish, I get it from the cabinet and put it in the shower for next time. But with 10 bottles I rarely have to do that.

Yeah I wish we had a regular shower again.
We have a real neat claw foot tub and it’s cool and all but there’s no storage space at all!

I have a bath tub with shower, so stuff I use is just on the side of bath tub. And my stash of products is stored in the shelf elsewhere.

They make shower curtains with pockets, perhaps that can help some?

I freed up some space in my cupboard earlier this year and I keep all the extra "beauty stuff" there. If I'm trying something out and/or I'm not going to use the same stuff twice, I may just wipe it with a towel afterwards and put it back in the cupboard.I don't want to keep all of my things in the bathroom, because it gets way too hot there, and cosmetic products don't like hot environments and drastic temperature changes.

I tend to rotate between different products each wash, so I have several bottles and jars on the corners of the bath tub and on three shelves that are next to the tub (where you would have your towel rack) as well.

I had a shelf built in when I remodeled my bathroom a few years ago. Now, I'm low maintenance, so I have the one shampoo I use, another I bought on vacation that I don't like for my hair but is good for shaving my legs whenever I get around to that. There's a wash'n'go a guest left at some point. And a jar of CV scrub. My CV bar lives on the little soap holder on my shower set up.

That's it :)

I have too many products... We have a hanging shower caddy with two shelves and some hooks, and also a three tier metal stand that sits on the floor. (Our shower is just a stall without a bathtub and it's rather large.) And I keep a plastic basket of extra stuff in our closet next to the bathroom. I'm definitely guilty of the stereotypical female sin of buying products specially formulated for my left elbow.

I'm working on using it all up and simplifying, please don't judge me. :p

I have a bathroom cabinet. And with my stash, there's now a few stackable boxes in front of it. :o Yeah, I have an issue. I have used up 29 products so far this year, and barely bought some (contrary to other years), so I'm good. I just put what I'm currently using in the top box and rotate if I can, but I try using up what I open up first (as much as possible).

Omg that sounds so tiring, all my products are on the floor in the corner of my shower... the only hair stuff I have is one normal shampoo and conditioner, and one anti-dandruff shampoo. They just chill there with my face wash and body wash haha. All the product testing chaos is skincare and makeup related for me :P

My bathroom in the city is tiny, not much space at all. I had my hubs mount a glass shelf at about 5 feet, and right next to the shower. All I have to do is reach out and grab a product. That's where I keep my most used items. It holds a mix of 7-8 bottles.
The others are on the edge of the tub, and in my caddy over the shower. Products I don't use or very rarely use, are under the sink.

At the house we built a large 7 foot shower when we were renovating. But, for whatever reason, I didn't consider storage a priority so we just had a small niche built in - enough for most people, but not me.
It does have a bench though, so that's where I've been keeping everything.

I have a shower shelf where I store my shampoo and conditioners. It's a stretch but I can fit my sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, my clarifying shampoo, and two deep conditioners on the shelf. Then I keep my oil treatments on my vanity since I do oil treatments on dry hair anyways.

My shower has a small shelf that holds a bottle of shampoo that I use as a body wash. This is like a cosmic alignment between the water-only washing and decluttering/minimalist threads. :meditate:

We have a shower over the bathtub, and a basket that sits suspended across the top of the bath widthways so the idea was to keep everything in there. In reality I keep my products within arm's reach based on whether I mostly use them facing the shower or with my back to it (I use a stool which makes turning round tricky!) So a few are in the basket, a couple are on the edge of the bath, and the ones that are used less frequently go back in my drawer in my bedroom in order to not take up too much space.

I have a small basket for all the standard items (shampoo, conidtioner, shower gel/soap) that's usually sitting on the edge of our bathtub (since we don't have a separate shower). Doesn't take that much space and can easily be put somewhere else when needed ;)

I generally have 2 shampoos and 1 or 2 conditioners, plus a bottle of shower gel, and it all fits in the indention that holds products on the back wall of the tub/shower.

These Hasko things (https://www.amazon.com/HASKO-accessories-Stainless-Bathroom-Rustproof/dp/B0746XTSHC/)from Amazon were an absolute lifesaver for me.

I'm not someone that keeps a lot of stuff in the shower though. It always grosses me out to think about water/soap residue building up on plastic bottles. I remember finding an earwig underneath a shampoo bottle I hadn't used for a while and I learned my lesson from that, lol.

Sounds like a very peaceful shower. ;) Just looking at TorrinPaige's overcrowded bathroom in her videos gives me anxiety, haha.

There's a very basic plastic basket (with a few holes drilled in the bottom for drainage) full of conditioner that lives on my shower floor. I'm picturing everyone's very organised, well stocked shelves/drawers and I'm getting jealous.

Im wondering if I should install a shelf closer to the shower head. Not everything is in arms reach when im in my shower and it irritates me.

Wow I really like the look of clawfoot tubs but never thought about the storage aspect!
Assuming the showerhead is over the tub and not a separate stall, could you get something like this (https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1258/0483/products/CC2158_FT_7526eff4-933b-4a60-876d-1946a0cd4800_2000x.jpg) and push it to the far end of the tub to get more storage space?
