    "My apartment bathroom is T-I-N-Y, and does not have a ton of storage space. The area under my sink is already a mess, and the situation was not helped by all my styling tools. This wire basket has been a godsend — it fits my hair dryer, my straightener, and my John Freida hot air styling brush, and it just hangs on the back of the cabinet door." —Kat Angus
