This $18 Shower Mirror Doubles as Storage — and Installs in Seconds
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that here at AT, we’re obsessed with home storage solutions. Every week, we bring you our favorite under-sink shelves for the kitchen, lift-top coffee tables for the living room, and even dorm essentials for our college readers. It usually doesn’t matter if the finds we’re recommending are a little oversized, themselves, because that means you get extra space to work with! The bigger the bins, the less clutter you have lying around. The one place where this logic can backfire, though, is the shower. If you live in a small apartment, chances are you have a tiny shower to match. Big tiered caddies are great because they can hold all your body scrubs, shampoos, shaving accessories, and more. But if you’re lathering up in a little 3′ by 2′ cell, that bulk just gets in the way and limits your range of motion.
It’s good, then, that we recently discovered this single-shelf caddy on Amazon, made by none other than Joseph Joseph, one of our favorite organization brands. It might look minuscule, but this drill-free find might be just what you need.
Unlike a lot of other home attachments that come with confusing instructions and require power tools for installation, the EasyStore caddy suctions onto your shower wall and is so simple to use. The small version only measures a few inches, ensuring that you won’t be bumping into any protruding surfaces as you bathe. Each one holds close to 5 lbs., which is enough for a shampoo bottle or two and your loofah, which you can hang on one of its bottom hooks. If you have some extra room, you can opt for the larger size or even a 2-pack of corner shelves. No matter which version you go with, the numerous positive customer reviews practically guarantee satisfaction. “My reservations about suction shelves have been entirely lifted with these from Joseph Joseph,” one shopper wrote. “The plastic is nice and thick … not cheap or brittle. It’s very easy to clean, too.” Plus, the shelf caddy is minimal in design and looks so modern!
But we haven’t even mentioned the best part: This product comes with its own mirror! You can now avoid cuts while shaving your face in the shower and make sure you get every spot while cleansing. There are truly no downsides to incorporating this caddy into your shower space. Right now, it’s 14 percent off, so you can snag one for just more than $17! And no matter how often you move, they’ll be so easy to bring along.
