There is never enough space in any shower for all the doo-dads you use, bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash pretty much full up any available storage area within your tub or shower. But what do you do with all the small things? If you are like me, you keep a tube of toothpaste and a toothbrush in the shower – why not clean everything in the same space … right?
I also need a razor and I have one of those stones for scrubbing away dead skin on my feet. But where to put them?
I also like to browse through local charity thrift stores and second hand shops. I found a full size shower rod (in white which matches my wood trim around my apartment) for sale at a local shop – total price – $1.50. Then I went to Dollar Tree (Another favorite of mine) and purchased three storage baskets. They come in a bundle of three, so total cost on that $1 + tax, I also picked up a package of shower curtain rings at Dollar Tree – again total cost $1 + tax.
I strung six of the curtain rod rings onto the rod and then used two each to attach the baskets. Now, I have ample storage for all my shower needs.
Let me know if you try this, and send me pics of yours! I could have used any color basket, they had four or five colors to choose from at Dollar Tree, but I chose to go with white, because I wanted it to blend with the wood trim and the shower surround. If you want a pop of color to your shower – then use something colorful! Here are two pics of my little project that cost me less than $5!!
What’s nice about this set up, is if your baskets get dirty – you can easily take them down, replace with new ones for $1 or just run them through the dishwasher!
As always – Blessed Be!
