So there I was, lingering in a steamy, fragrant bubble bath, mulling over which of my dozens of TotalBeauty.com Award-winning products I was going to try, when my new plastic shower caddy broke under the weight of my bath product bounty and a family-size bottle of DHC shampoo fell on my head. It was my Isaac Newton-apple moment: I was suddenly, and literally, struck by the limitations of most manufactured bathroom organization products.
As I reinforced my broken shower bin with leftover ribbon from last Christmas, I realized that I needed to think outside the bin -- and, if you're half the product hoarder I am, so do you. Herewith, the ultimate guide to bathroom organization: super-pretty, super-smart and, most importantly, super-easy ideas for storing your embarrassing amount of beauty products. Because if you wanted to mount shelves, you'd have already done that.
