However, storing them was a disaster. They were constantly getting knocked onto the floor, in the sink, dripping all over the counter. . .you get the idea. I looked online for electric toothbrush holders, and they were a wee bit expensive when one has to buy a holder that will accommodate five hefty brushes. So I put my thinking cap on.
And came up with this:
And I have to tell you, dear reader, that I am inordinately pleased with myself. Every time I walk by this bathroom (which is in serious need of a total overhaul and my least favorite room in the house), I feel a little better about it. No toothbrushes strewn across the toothpaste-caked countertop. At least a small part of this less-than-lovely bathroom looks clean and organized. And it makes me happy.
I got the idea from the boys' primary science kit. It has a two-slot test-tube holder included which I thought would work perfectly. Except we have five kids. So I went to the teacher supply store with my $10 off coupon in hand (this is me, remember!) and lo and behold, this item of beauty awaited me. For $15.99. Subtract my coupon and it was mine for $6. Yippee!
