I have posted unique ways to make shelving here before, so here is another cool tip.

Recently, I moved into a home that had 2 white shelves leaning up against the wall. There was a perfect space in front of a window, but I didn't have the ability to use brackets. I went to a thrift shop and got 4 cups, all the same height. I used them for shelf supports. My bathroom is red and black and white so I stayed with those colors. Cool Bathroom Shelving


They turned out nice and are easy to move, leaving no holes in anyone's walls.


Source: Nope. Just a repeat of things I have done before.

Do less wash, buy each child a towel in their own color. When my 4 kids were growing up, I had a problem with them just throwing their bath towels onto the bathroom floor. I remedied this by buying each child their OWN towel in their own color. The rule was that they were each responsible for their own towel.

They had to use the SAME towel all week long. I'd wash them all every Saturday. If I saw a towel on the floor, I knew who it belonged to. This not only stopped me from yelling about it, it also taught them to take care of their belongings. Believe me, you'll do whole lot less wash!

With regards to children and their washroom habits, I have found from time and motherhood that children and youths have some main things each of them need and it is a little different for each person.

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.

I was trying to de-clutter the bathroom counter, and looked up to see this towel ring and thought "I wonder if these would all fit?" and sure enough they did!

I clip my hair clips to the towel rack in my bathroom. They fit perfectly!

I had a lone Dollar Tree hook over the bathroom door facing inside. It was for my robes, but was pretty high up. A friend gave me one she didn't need anymore and boy, has it made life easier.

I love those wire basket shelves that adjust over the tub. I finally found one, but then realized that the oval shape of my tub made it not fit.


Not one to be daunted, I found that it fits over the lip on top and the curtain rod.

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.

I love shower caddies. They are convenient and hook over the shower faucet just perfectly. Except when they don't.


That was the case today when I went to hang mine. The faucet was so far forward that the caddy wouldn't stay put.

I'm a terminal pack rat. One of those people who is always buying stuff and then forgetting where I put it. Recently, I bought a 3 drawer rolling cart at KMart for $10. I use it for all my bought ahead health and beauty items.

To free up some counter space in the bathroom, I purchased a shower caddy and placed it on the mirror. The suction cups hold it on tight and it has worked great for me.

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.

I save the plastic containers that shower curtains come in, etc. I put all my hair products in one, all tooth paste and mouth wash and floss in one, all nail stuff in one, all perfume in one, all make up in one, and finally all hand cream and skin cream in one.

Assign a different colored nylon scrubbie to each member of your household. No more wash cloths to launder!


A scrubbie creates a ridiculous amount of suds thereby reducing the amount of soap used.
