Welcome to the first Tuesday Tip! As you know, I love being a stay-at-home mom to one-year-old triplets, but I also have a few other plates spinning in the air. I’m a part-time dentist, full-time MBA student, organizing junkie, avid reader, and the proud owner of 5 rescue animals (two dogs and three cats).
The question I get asked most often is, “How do you do it?” So I decided I would tell you. One tip at a time. I’ll cover organizing projects, time management techniques, and toddler activities. If I think it’s helpful, I’ll offer it up here.
This project is one that I found on Pinterest when I was looking for answers to our bathtub toy nightmare. This bathtub organization idea originally came from a website called The Inspired Home. They used dollar store items for their organization project. I confess that I did not. I went to Target for my supplies. Target has a triple cart and a Starbucks, so it’s the only place I actually enjoy shopping with the kids.
Here’s where we started:
It’s a hot mess, right? All I had to wrangle bath toys was a suction cup owl that only holds half of their stuff and constantly falls off the shower wall. I was ready for an upgrade. Here’s what you need for the project:
One Tension Rod
A Few Plastic Baskets
Shower hooks (metal slides a bit easier on the bar)
Hang the tension rod about 8-10 inches above the back of the bathtub and 2-3 inches from the back wall. Hang baskets with the metal shower hooks. Voila!
This project literally took me 16 minutes start to finish. I timed it. And that included removing things from their packaging. It’s working really well so far. The kids love it and clean-up after bath-time is a breeze.
