First, Snearly said to pick up a few soap dishes from Dollar Tree, which she mentioned have a five-star review on their website.

“They work really great on smooth surfaces, especially if you have a small space.”

Snearly used her soap dish to hold body wash and shaving cream in her shower but as another trick, she said you can stick it to a window to use as a birdfeeder as well.


To spice up your wall space, Snearly said to pick up Dollar Tree’s removable wall decals.

“This is the best quality peel-and-stick tile I’ve ever seen Dollar Tree come out with,” she said.

Snearly used the wall decals to decorate the wall behind her bathroom mirror.

She said the removable wall decals are high quality, perfect for renters, and come off the wall super easily.

“I definitely give it five out of five stars.”


Dollar Tree has a number of cheap mirror options, but Snearly said you’ll want to pick up their newest mini mirror.

Rather than putting it on her wall, she places it on her bathroom countertop area to use as a tray.

“This is a really easy way to store all of your lotions or lipsticks,” she said.

“You can even decorate the side if you wanted to.”


To better display your wall decor, the Dollar Tree super fan said to get their $1.25 puck lights.

Getting creative, she tied hers into a $5 dinner bell she found at the Target Dollar Spot-find.

She then hung up her DIY bell light above wall art to help it stand out on her walls.


“Dollar Tree vases and candleholders also make really great bathroom organization that looks very high-end,” she said.

Snearly uses clear jars to store cotton swabs, extra bars of soap, and other bathroom necessities in a stylish way.

Many viewers loved her tricks, saying: “Amazing how you ‘reinvent’ items for other uses,” and “The birdfeeder idea is so cute!”
