Spare Toilet Roll Storage using a Cookie Jar

I actually got the idea to do this after seeing an advert online (sorry can't remember the store!) where they were selling small containers to place on top of your toilet to store your spare toilet roll. This is a great idea for those small guest toilets where you don't have much space.  After seeing the photograph I thought this would be a great idea for me to come up with my own version!

After looking around for containers which would be the right size, I came across an old cookie jar that wasn't being used. Another idea which I noticed when walking around the supermarket was the containers that store the powdered baby milk - they look just about the right size to store one toilet roll.  Now all you need to do is decorate if needed - I was lucky that I didn't have to do any decoration. If decoration was required you could use sticky backed plastic, stickers or even some fabric and ribbons.

I actually use this in the main bathroom which is quite spacious - it works really well and is nice and handy if you need the spare toilet roll in an emergency!

  3. Very nice idea! This is great if you have a pedestal sink and can't store extra in the cabinet.

  4. What a great idea! I actually have similar items that I was planning on sending onto their next home at a Spring garage sale. Maybe I need to take a second look. I love creative minds! I am all about saving money so reusing existing items for new purposes is a great way to do that.
