We have had the same shower caddy for over 5 years now. It was a hand-me-down from Jeff’s cousin right before we got married. At the time, we would accept anything anyone would give to us to get our home started, and while it’s lasted us all these years, it was time to replace it. The caddy was no longer meeting our needs and there were a few key reasons why it needed to go.

I picked up a new caddy at Ross for $9. Here are some of the best features.

This caddy came with section cups to keep it against the shower wall and piece for the top to keep it snug on the pipe above the shower head.

The bottom of the caddy has built in storage for razors (so clever) so they don't take up valuable space on a shelf. It also has hooks to hang brushes and puffs.

The top shelf is farther away from the shower head, allowing me to store larger bottles the were previously on the floor.

You can also see in the picture above that we put a rubber band on the pipe near the top of the caddy to prevent it from slipping down.

A few subtle features on the new caddy makes all the difference. We needed this especially because we have a very small shower with no tub, which means no tub lip to put bottles on. This was the perfect solution for our small shower.
