How do I fix my slow-draining toilet and sink?

I have a 1-bathroom house with an unfinished basement. For the last couple of weeks, the bathroom sink has been slower and slower to drain. The toilet is also getting slower. The water isn't having the "swirly" action it typically does. It hasn't overflowed, but water flow is definitely not getting any better. Plunging helps, but I'm assuming there is a deeper problem. MeFi, before I bring out the Drano or call the plumber, what else can I do? What's going on?
