Like many a bride who has come before me, I've added "bathroom courtesy basket" to my ever-growing list of crap to accomplish before tying the knot.

While it may seem a like a frivolous detail, having been to weddings both with and without the BCB - I find it to be very useful and a nice gesture by the bride and groom, without being very time consuming or expensive.

I found a few grey woven baskets at my local Marshall's (aka, my own personal heaven) and filled it with goodies from the travel section of my local Wal*Mart (aka, my own personal hell).
