I love these ideas! I have no counter space in my tiny bathroom. I bought a hanging shoe holder and put all my bathroom stuff in it. For my makeup I bought square cups and used command strips and stuck them to my wall for makeup brushes, eye pencils, lipstick…
I love the idea of basket trays to organize the fridge and the tray to organize the jewelry.
