In the past, I have kept the toothbrushes in a basket in the cabin of our trailer, along with the toothpaste and a load of other toilettries, which lead to digging and searching and trying to find them every night. They are always hiding in the very back. I am pretty sure they have legs. No really, they do.
One trip to the grocery store had me stopping in my tracks. I came across these little darlings:
These are the Kikkerland Suction Cup Toothbrush Holders. Laddy really likes ladybugs (or as we call them around here Ladybirds) and the color red is his favorite, so naturally I thought he would want that one. No. He wants mama’s owl. I am not budging on that one. They come in loads of different animals, and each one is more adorable than the next. Plus being $2.99 at the store wasn’t going to break my bank. So, being the good mama I am, I picked up the bee for him instead, which he has decided he is perfectly fine (daddy gets the Ladybird, win-win for everyone, and daddy likes ladybirds).
I have attached them to a wall in my galley (near the sink for ease) with another favorite item, museum putty! A little ball at the back of the holder and it sticks to the wood far better than the included suction cups would. I use this for most of my “sticking” needs – it is awesome stuff! It pulls off without leaving a trace, which keeps the wood in the galley looking nice if I change my mind later, or Laddy gets to big for his bee holder. It is bound to happen, but I will delay it as long as I can!
If I can mix cute with my organization, I am going to do it!
