Turn old door knobs into classy towel hangers.
When in a rush, many people have a habit of just hanging the towel to the closest thing it can be placed to. Usually it’s the doorknob of the bathroom. Since it’s sort of already become a habit for humanity, why not make the most out of it right? To make your shower place a bit more decorative (in a cheap way), take your old, unused and broken door knobs and stick them on the walls of your bathroom. Good idea, eh?
Bury your spare key brilliantly.
The dilemma of where to hide the emergency spare has gone on for too long. It’s time to solve this problem by using a medicine bottle and a piece of pine cone. Insert the key inside an old medicine bottle with the piece of pine cone attached to one end. Bury it in such a way that it will appear to just be an ordinary pine cone on in the soil.
Use an extra shower curtain rod for extra storage.
Don’t blame yourself if you didn’t think of this right away. If you did, however, then you can congratulate yourself for being a step ahead of the human race.
