Wholly Fictitious Fact: Clothing mysteriously changes sizes while in our drawers and closets. This is unrelated to our caloric intake because the non-fitting clothes are actually closet monsters. Defeat those menacing shape-shifters by banishing them from your home. You will become a hero to the properly-fitted clothing, and the now spacious Closet Kingdom will rejoice.

Low-Cost Bathroom Space Savers
1) Hang a second shower rod inside your tub. Attach a mesh shower organizer or use S-hooks to hang mesh bags to it. Voilà! Instant storage for body scrubbers, toys, and your neighbor's yappy Chihuahua.
2) Store items inside plastic boxes in your bathroom vanity. Pull the box out for easy access to toiletries or cleaning products. It also keeps gunky spills off your cabinet floor. Measure the space before buying anything. Remember, always keep products away from small children.
