Hair Accessories

Posted in 'Organising' on October 29, 2010

Young girls tend to have lots of hair accessories (I'm sure they multiply when I'm not looking!). Keeping them all in one place and tidy can be quite difficult to do. Most of the time they end up looking like this:

In some sort of order, but not easily accessible withough pulling everything out.

By taking some time to sort through everything and throwing out the things that are no longer used, you will find things a lot easier. By going a step further and using containers that fit everything and allow you so see things easily, you can end up with a much better looking finished product:

The moral of the story here (apart from the fact that you end up with hair accessories that you can find when you need them) is that you need to find the right container for the job. Something that is sitting around the house not being used might be fantastic, but then again, it may not work. Spending a bit of time now finding the right container for the job could save dollars and time later on.

For those of you that are interested, the hair accessories were broken up into drawers - elastic head bands, ribbons, elastics and hair clips. Plastic headbands are kept together on the side. This way, miss 6 can find what sheis loking for without them being pulled out and strewn everywhere.

6 weeks later, it still looks this tidy.
