Shower caddies aren’t just for shower organization anymore. There are a myriad of ways to use this once-only bathroom accessory to get your home more organized in no time.
Here are some great ideas to take the caddy out of the bathroom:
- Kitchen handiness
The condiments and utensils you use the most can be right at hand when you hang a shower caddy on your kitchen wall. It’s the perfect place for salt and pepper shakers or any spices you use most often. Add a few hooks to the bottom to hang a spatula or soup ladle. Using a shower caddy this way will also keep your counters looking neat and tidy.
- Works wonders for winter gear
The shower caddy basket is the perfect place for winter gloves, mittens, scarves and hats. Hang one or more caddies in your mudroom and let everyone in the house know to use them to store their winter wear.
- A bright idea for greenery
If you live in an apartment or a small place, you can turn a shower caddy into a mini garden. They’re the perfect holders for little pots. You might even want to line them with moss to give them an outdoorsy look. Hang them wherever you want a little nature inside.
- A crafty idea
If you love doing crafts, a shower caddy can be home to all kinds of craft supplies. It makes a terrific holder for rolls of ribbon. Individual ribbon ends could be flowed through the wires at the bottom of the shelf for easy access.
- Managing mail
There are times when we don’t want to open mail right away, especially those bills. Shower organization becomes mail organization when you use a shower caddy for snail mail. It can also store flyers until you have time to read them.
- A load of laundry supplies
Installing a few shower caddies in the laundry room is a practical way of holding all your laundry supplies like detergent, fabric softener, bleach, dryer sheets, stain remover, etc. If you don’t want to attach it to a wall, hang it from your drying rack.
- Beauty at hand
Instead of shower organization in the bathroom, consider a shower caddy for beauty products like creams, lotions and hair products. You can even add a hook to hang up your blow dryer.
