OK, so this barely counts as a project since it took about one minute to do, but I thought I'd share the idea anyway. I've been meaning to find a better way to store the baby's bath toys since I've been keeping them in a bucket that doesn't drain or air out the wet toys. I looked at bath toy storage options online and just couldn't' bring myself to spend the money. I'm also trying to change my mindset that I need something new--this blog is all about looking around at what we already have for inspiration.
Then, while I was doing laundry and wondering how I accumulated so many lingerie mesh bags, the idea hit me. I simply found some leftover ribbon (this one's made of a natural fiber and has wire, but it doesn't really matter), cut the mesh on either side enough to thread the ribbon through, and there you go. No cost, not a lot of time. If you don't have a towel bar in your bathtub like I do, see what you could use in the space. For example, if you have a small window you could get an inexpensive tension rod and create a window covering at the same time. Or, you could tie this to the bottom of a shower-head caddy.
It's been a busy week, I promise to be more inventive next week!
