May I introduce you to the joy of suspenders for your hand towels? When three children share a bathroom, it should hardly be surprising that the hand towels were rarely on the towel bar. But enter these clips, which cost $1.00 for a 4-pack at Dollar Tree. By attaching them to our towels we have cut down on laundry and need not worry about germs from dropped towels.
Note: If you are crafty and can get your hands on an old pair of real suspenders, you could shorten them (or make some) for the same sanity-saving purpose.
