My $.55 Under-The-Sink Toothbrush Holder

Filed under: Cleaning/Decorating — Savvy Housekeeper at 7:44 am on Wednesday, January 7, 2015

I don’t like having toothbrushes and toothpaste on top of the sink in the bathroom. For ages, I looked for a basket that would fit on the inside of the door of the bathroom vanity, but they were always too wide or too big.

Then one day, I hit upon a solution: I took two adhesive hooks from the Dollar Tree ($.11 each) and hung a narrow pencil holder from the same store ($.33) on them. My new toothbrush holder fit perfectly on the door. I was thrilled.

But when I put our toothbrushes and toothpaste in the basket, the adhesive on the hooks didn’t hold and the whole thing fell off the door. So I looked in the household toolbox and came up with spare adhesive strips from another set of hooks we bought awhile back. Perfect. I put the strips on the back of the hooks and pressed them on the cabinet door. The basket hasn’t come off since.

So my Under-The-Sink Toothbrush Holder cost a little over half a buck. And I can remove the basket and wash it whenever I want.
