I like the shower storage curtain. I could do with one of them. I live in a small place, so a lot of these storage solutions would be ideal for me.

Ted Salmons on January 09, 2017:

Does anybody know if the "cabinet" around the toilet was purchased (if so where) or built at home?

Heather Tackett from Cartersville, GA on September 29, 2016:

Wow! This page is going to be my best friend. I especially like the under sink tension bars for cleaning products and the wrapping paper solution with the closet rack. Right now I have wrapping paper crammed on top of a closet, and it always rolls off onto the floor or my head!

Kinga Hauer from Kraków on August 11, 2016:
