I've mentioned before that I cannot bend, lift or twist. Can you imagine that? Think of the things you do every day that requires those movements? Do you know anyone who can't or shouldn't bend/lift or twist? I thought I'd show you how we make this work. This idea works well anywhere, particularly bathrooms and kitchens.
In our new bathroom, the counter tops are "normal" height, whereas the other house has "gentleman" height, for taller folks. This creates a problem as even brushing my teeth causes a "leaning" situation that hurts my back. The vanity is nice and large with tons of drawers, BUT I can't use them. Bummer.
And something we really miss is the huge linen closet that we had behind the vanity at the other place. I kept much of my items in that closet, easily reachable. So what to do?
We were shopping at S.am's the other day and saw this:
For only $14.99, we thought maybe we had solved the bathroom problem. And we did! It works great! (Sadly, I can only find it online now for $29 - $35. Check YOUR store and see if they still have it.) Here is a link to the higher priced product:
You can actually buy 2 and stack them on each other if you have a taller space.
Kitchen Worx Stackable Basket
It is not the cutest thing ever, but it is WONDERFUL for my needs. Always be ready to think outside the "box" - using a kitchen shelving system for toiletries. Win!
P.S. I'm not the only one who uses it! lol
