Great example of a place to put items that come and go regularly (i.e. returns (to stores and other people), lost & found, donate. Also good to keep bottled water and overflow of items that you don't have storage for in the kitchen.
Love this idea for using a large glass jar for storing hotel soaps (remove the paper for a nicer display) in the bathroom. This three tiered unit is also ideal for keeping bathroom essentials like fresh towels and facecloths handy.
