Storage tips: Bathroom
One of my favorite movie trilogies is the Back To The Future series. (Yes, I have several favorite movie trilogies. Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Die Hard... And yes, I know they're all not really trilogies anymore. But I digress.) Something that Doc Brown often admonishes Marty McFly is that he's "not thinking fourth-dimensionally." Though we haven't broken through that fourth dimension of time yet, I find that I'm often guilty of not thinking three-dimensionally. When you're living in a small space, you can't forget to think UP! Here's a trick to consider for the bathroom: use a set of hanging baskets (traditionally found in the kitchen) as storage above your sink. Wouldn't this basket from Target look cute with rolled towels, bottles of toiletries, or even a box of tissues in it? And at about $13, it's not even out of MY budget!
Remember, you have to think THREE-dimensionally (and get the Delorean up to 88 miles an hour)!
