Frugal Tip: Bathtub Toy Storage

By Catherine Mcdiarmid-Watt @frugalfreebies
For the Home
If I had little ones, I would do this one in minute! I even have a spring loaded bar and shower rings on hand, not being used for anything.
Place a spring-loaded shower rod against the back wall of your tub, with wire baskets hanging on shower curtain hooks to organize all those bath toys.
I think any sort of basket would work, either wire or plastic baskets.
When company comes over, just move the rod to the top of the shower to get it out of the way.
Hmm... I wonder what you could store there if there were no little ones in the house? Reading material? Candles? cleaning supplies?
So, who is going to try this one?
