For me, the cabinets under the sink in our bathroom were more like caves where everything got lost than useful space. I recently decided to tackle one of them and I was able to find good solutions for organizing it.
I used a small set of plastic drawers to organize all of the hair accessories we have. I have a drawer for rubber bands, one for headbands, and one for barrettes and clips.
I used a basket for all of the hair products. There is a basket for lotions and other skin care products, as well as one for nail polish and related items. Now I can bring the whole basket up to the counter and use everything. Then easily put it all away.
I have a ton of room in my bathroom for medicine and such. Hiding it all behind mirrored doors that often didn't close properly was a pain.
So today I decided to combine what I had on my cabinet shelf on top and on the counter to inside and on top of the cabinet itself. I stored the mirrored doors and stashed the med's in a 6 drawer unit I can now separate by what is in each drawer. I am a happy happy camper!
In my bathroom cabinet, I keep a see-thru plastic jar with a screw on lid, (probably about 1 1/2 qt.). When out shopping and I find cough drops on sale, I stock up. When home, I empty all the cough drop bags, into this see-thru jar in the bathroom. This way, they're all in one place, compact and everyone knows where they are. No one has to go searching in the pantry or in some drawer for a cough drop. The same could be done with band-aids, cotton swabs, and cotton balls.

I bought some shelving to maximize space in my bathroom vanity, but still was not satisfied with the bottom. I had to take things out of the cabinet one by one to reach things in the back.
I had a plastic shoebox that was missing a lid. I decided to put the items in the shoebox, and was pleased with the result. I now only have to take the box out to reach my items in the back.
