"Caddy" Shack: Epilogue

At Laurel's suggestion, I went to Bed Bath & Beyond and paid an ungodly amount of money for this Super Duper Delux Fabulously Adjustable Shower Caddy With The Lady's Name In Child Of The Manger Gold!!

OK, that part's not true about the lady's name, but it is adjustable. And the top part actually clips on to the shower pipe and you screw it down so that it can't slide around. It went against my grain to pay nearly $45, including tax, for a shower caddy, but desperate situations call for desperate measures.
We shall see....


  1. "It went against my grain to pay nearly $45"

    A basic truism of capitalism that folks hate to accept is that you get what you pay for. Bargain prices mean cheap shoddy crap that doesn't do what it's supposed to. Unfortunate, but true. If something is well-made out of better material, it's going to cost more.

    Take me for instance. I'm easy, but I am most certainly not cheap!

    If it starts to 'move' nail it to the wall...I THINK I'm still talking about the shower caddy, but a strong image of a wet Mr D'Onofrio just danced across what's left of my brain ;0)

  4. Just a thought - doesn't the water from the shower head give a shower to the things on the shelves instead of you?

  5. I know it looks that way Val, but the water clears the shelves.

    Diane - YUM!

  6. I second Mark. You do get what you pay for, except in the case of certain vaccuum cleaners.

  7. "You do get what you pay for, except in the case of certain vaccuum cleaners."

    Depends on what it is you're expecting the vacuum cleaner to do...

  8. we'll be needing a caddy update on a regular basis. it's sorta like a soap opera, ya know?
    and there's nothing wrong with being...frugal. as long as you know when to not be, right? you just gotta prioritize. bathroom? frugal. beading? NOT

  9. Fen-EXACTLY!!! For example, my dentist wants me to get a nightguard to stop me grinding my teeth. It's $500 and insurance won't cover it. I won't buy it either. But a $500 trip to Shipwreck Beads? No problem.

    nice super disco shower caddy. Keep us posted on its progress.

  11. i agree, keep us updated please. that is a mighty fancy shower caddy ya got there...

    and as a side note, i have suddenly started to clench at night and i asked the dentis about it, she told me to buy one of the mouth gaurds that the football players wear, (you know, you boil them and then fit them to your mouth) so i did, it was 97 cents!! and it fits me fine and it works well. so maybe that would work for you..maybe not..
