putting up a bathroom cabinet
I'm trying to put up a cabinet in my bathroom and I measured the distance painstakingly beween the nail slider hooks, but then I drilled the hole, put in the drywall anchor and the screw, and tried to slide the cabinet on - I'm like an 1/8th of an inch off. What do I do now? I'm afraid that if I pull out the screw and drywall mounts the mounts will break and I won't be able to use it and it's a special screw that fits into the holders on the cabinet.

I need a picture to tell you exactly what to do.
However there are all sorts of anchor available,some that will not mind being installed next to a hole.

A tip to all-----when you need perfect spacing like this--don't use a ruler--

Use your level--hold it up to the cabinet or shelf or whatever and mark the hole locations right on the level-----then put the level on the wall--

and transfer the marks to the wall with a sharp pointed tool like a nail,awl or tiny screwdriver.
