I had this little shredder for a while and it began to show it's age. I painted it and used it for earrings and my make up brushes. It's perfect with my black and red bathroom! Shredder Organizer




Approximate Time: 1 hour drying time



You can get a new shredder from the Dollar Tree. Or, find one from a second hand place or use your own. Paint it the color of your bathroom, or leave white or silver if you like it rustic.

When done, simply hang earrings from the holes and put your cosmetic brushes (combs, etc) in from the top.

You could also hang it and use it for necklaces as well.

I have a bad habit of stockpiling toiletries because I never know what I have on hand or I know I have it and can't find it. I hung a pocket shoe bag on the inside of my linen closet and now put new purchases (and those from my stash) of shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.


in the pockets.

Each of our 3 children has a small plastic tote stored in our hall linen closet to take into the bathroom. They keep all of their toiletries in these totes.

Don't have enough space to store all your toiletries in the bathroom? Hang a see-through shoe bag on the back of the door. Everything slips right in and you can see what you need.

My 5 year old daughter has a great deal of "Things" that we use while she is getting ready for bed and getting ready for school. We were constantly running up and down stairs, in and out of the bathroom and everywhere to get her ready. No more!

I had a bottle holder which I didn't have any use for. I decided to make a lotion caddy out of the bottle holder so I could store my lotions on the counter top and have easy, daily access to a choice of lotions rather than dig through a bathroom drawer or have them piled up all over the countertop.

Bottles of lotion in a wire rack holder.

While shopping, most of us know to check for the expiration dates on food items. Did you know there are expiration dates on over the counter medications, on toothpastes, and other items, as well?

My husband and I went to the flea market, and I bought a decorative glass bottle for $3.50 for our mouthwash. I was getting tired of looking at the plastic bottle sitting next to the sink and wanted to make a change.
