This Toothbrush Holder Makes Your Bathroom Look Organized & Keeps Your Items Handy

Sometimes, you can just look at an item in someone’s home and know they have their life together. This wall-mounted toothbrush holder is one of those items: It keeps up to four toothbrushes and two cups handy on the bottom with an automatic toothpaste dispenser and divided slots for other personal care items on the top. A subtle drawer in the front can store daily accessories, like your watch or jewelry, and the entire thing sticks to the wall, mirror, or tile with adhesive.


These LED Strip Lights Are Motion-Activated & Perfect For Getting Up Without Waking Up Your Partner

If you frequently get up in the middle of the night while your partner snoozes peacefully, they’ll thank you for installing this motion-activated under-bed light instead of turning on an overhead or bedside light. It casts a soft warm glow automatically when motion is detected and shuts off after whatever time you set, from 30 seconds up to 10 minutes. You can also install the LED strip lights under cabinets, on the edge of your counters, or in other hidden places to help guide you through your home in the dark.

One reviewer wrote “The key to saving space is vertical storage...You don’t believe how much fits in here. Plus, it looks so professional and sleek in your bathroom.”


Place These Adhesive LED Lights Under Cabinets & They’ll Turn On As You Approach

Certain corners of your home can get super dark, but aren’t convenient for adding a wired light fixture. These motion-activated under-cabinet lights solve that problem efficiently with passive infrared technology that detects human motion within 10 feet and turns on automatically. They provide just the right amount of light for a dark closet, under a cabinet, or inside a drawer, and after 20 seconds without detecting motion, they’ll shut off to save battery. What’s more is that you don’t need to fuss with wires or installation: They come with an adhesive strip to attach to walls and other flat surfaces.

This Stainless Steel Magnetic Bar Offers A Safe Place To Store Knives & Other Tools

There’s a reason for the saying “not the sharpest knife in the drawer,” and that’s because knives that bounce around in a drawer eventually become dull. I might be making up that origin story, but it’s true that a better way to store knives is on a magnetic knife bar like this one. Not only does it look great in your kitchen, it’ll help keep sharp objects out of reach from curious little hands while still storing them in a way that’s handy and easy to grab.
