My daughter has been blessed with long, beautiful hair...
Most times it is a blessing, I should say. With that long hair comes many days when there are lots of tears (from both of us!) in the battle of wills to decide who gets to brush her hair. Often times we're scrambling to go somewhere and I just want to grab something to keep her hair out of her face, so I dig through the hair ties, bows, ribbons, headbands, etc. to only leave a mess that looks like this on the bathroom counter...
Here is what it looks like in the drawer every day...just a jumbled up mess that started out as "somewhat organized". (The hair bands were supposed to be in the green container and the ribbons, bows, and headbands in the purple container. Yeah. That system obviously failed.)
I decided I just couldn't handle it anymore, so I found the perfect solution!
This is originally intended to be a craft organizer, but the possibilities are endless with little containers such as these. I bought them in a 2-pack from Michaels when they were 40% off. They fit the small hair things just perfectly.
I took the head bands, bows, and ribbons and put them in another basket on a shelf that was actually empty.
And, now look at this drawer!
