1 A Lidded Box for the Top of the Toilet
The top of the toilet is a prime spot to squeeze in a little extra storage. Because this area is sure to be seen, choose an attractive woven basket you won't mind leaving out on display—bonus points for one with a lid that conceals all of the clutter. Use the basket to store cotton swabs, face wipes, and brushes within reach yet out of sight.

2 A Hair Tool Holder for the Back of the Cabinet Door
Hair styling tools are notoriously difficult to store and the back of cabinet doors are typically underutilized—which makes this organizer doubly brilliant. Reviewers note that you can adjust the height of the basket, so it can fit most cabinets. Your hair dryer, straightener, and curling iron (and their tangle of cords) will never look neater.
