Hello, friends! I’m back to share an easy storage solution we came up with for the bathroom downstairs. All 5 of my kids are sharing it, there are no drawers and very little storage, we are renting so we can’t do anything too crazy to the walls, so we had to figure out an inexpensive solution in a jiffy.
Here we go…
Take 5 buckets from the Dollar Tree. (Ikea sells them too, but they are $4-$8) I was trying to keep this as thrifty as possible and remembered spotting these at the dollar store. Target sells buckets in their dollar spot sometimes as well (remember this post??)
to drill 2 holes in the back of each bucket. Remember to wear safety goggles-there will be little pieces of metal flying around! These are not very thick, so it goes quickly.
Then, take an IKEA Bygel rail for $2.99(never fear if you don’t have an IKEA near, did you know you can buy their stuff on line now?? That would have been helpful to know when we lived 4 hours away from ours in Virginia!!) and attach it to the wall on the studs.
Use a pack of bygel S-hooks for 99 cents to attach the buckets, and there you go. Everyone has their own bucket for their toothpaste and toothbrush. The girls do their hair in their room to try to preserve bathroom space, so we didn’t need huge containers. It was a perfect solution for us, and under $10 and under 1 hour.
