I don’t know about in your house but frequently I walk into the bathroom to find toothbrushes scattered all over the countertop. It drives me nutso. Especially since I’d given them a nice bucket on the counter which which to throw them into. Now really how hard is that!?
Now in all fairness, my ice bucket inspired toothbrush storage did work for quite some time but eventually what happens is they (as in my family) stop seeing it. It ends up sitting there lonely and dejected and that almost makes me sadder than the toothbrushes all over the counter. I simply cannot have one of my containers treated that way. I won’t stand for it I tell you.
When this starts to happen I know it’s time to change things up again. Offer a fresh solution that’s fun and exciting to keep them on their toes! So I cleared out one of my bathroom drawers and assigned them each their own toothbrush basket instead. I purchased these baskets 2 for $1.00 at the dollar store. They work beautifully in most drawers for most things including junk drawers.
Seriously, be still my heart.
So far it’s working out great and the kids are actually once again putting their toothbrushes away. Yet for sure the day will come when these baskets will to be ignored but that’s okay because the beauty of organizing is there is no end to the organizing solutions to be found.
