How to Use a Shower Caddy to Organize Things in Your Home
If you are anything like me, you stay at the Dollar Tree. And even though the price went from $1 to $1.25, you still know that $1.25 is a great deal for most items they have at the store. If you see a particular item, you have to snatch it up or it will be gone.
I saw a whole pile of these shower caddies last and I bought a bunch of them. I found five different uses for the shower caddy in different places in my home. Here are my ideas:
1. Hang it inside shelving units
There are many other uses for a shower caddy, rather than just keeping it on the neck of the shower. I haven’t used it for that purpose in over ten years.
Instead, I attached some hooks to the side of my shelving unit and hung a few rolls of vinyl that I use with my Cricut, along with some different tapes that I use for crafting.
2. Use it to store pot lids
I took another caddy and, by folding the hanging part all the way back and bending the bar and shelves upwards, I was able to use it to store my pot lids on the inside of my cabinet doors.
3. Turning a shower caddy into a bedside holder
You can also bend the top part back 90 degrees and slip it under your mattress as a bedside caddy to hold your books, your phone, or any other items you want close to the bed.
4. Use a caddy as a spice rack
You can cut off the hanging part altogether and hang the caddy in your kitchen to store the spices you use most often.
5. Make a desk drawer
You can go a step further and cut off all the little bars out of the shelves with wire cutters, and hang it under a desk, along with a tray (I got this one from Dollar Tree years ago). It fits perfectly and works really well as a desk drawer.
