Dollar Store Storage

We have a tiny house. In our tiny house is a tiny bathroom between the kids' room. The only storage in the bathroom is the medicine cabinet and one cabinet below the single sink. With the pipes and bath toys there isn't much room to store towels. Until recently I kept the kids' towels in the linen closet in the main bathroom. It worked okay but I thought it would be more fun to not have to go get a towel each time they forgot one. ;)

Enter the dollar store. My dollar store's basket selection isn't as grand as some I've seen on the interwebz but it had enough for me to work with.

Two simple baskets hung with screws. The lighting and shadows are bad but it's a tiny bathroom which makes it difficult to get a decent picture in.

I managed to get them level without a level or ruler or anything. I know they aren't the prettiest things, the green isn't so bright in real life, but they serve their purpose well. Maybe one day I'll get around to building little boxes from the pallets sitting out in my yard.

Here you can get an idea of how small the bathroom is. One door opens into the bathroom, just shy of the sink, right next to that is the shower/tub. Above the toilet is a towel bar for towels to dry.

You can't leave the dollar store with just two baskets though right? I have some more dollar store storage to share soon.

Thanks for visiting!

  7. It's always nice to find a cute and simple solution to a storage issue! Agreed that dollar stores can be traps for endless buying. :)

  9. Love your idea. I actually have some extra space in my main bathroom and we have shelfs next to the shower where we keep all the extra towels. But I thought I could use your idea for another project, I am working on. A craft area in my office. I am looking forward to your future posts on organization.
