Just like with homes and buildings, where there is no room, build up! For small bathroom or kitchen counters, consider a tiered tray to hold all of the essentials without taking up as much room on the counter. I found this tray for sale here on Amazon. About $110, though! Yowzers. Amazon also has a nice selection of other tiered trays at lower price ranges. I have this one in my kitchen, and I love it! I use it for fruit, veggies, nuts, and other healthy food choices that I want to be easily seen and accessible.
