It's A Snap!

My daughter has 20 trillion hair bands.

I had them divided and organized in a drawer, but as you can imagine, they always managed to get mixed up.

As I was giving all the stuff from her room a new home, I came across the dreaded hair bands. Ugh, I needed a better plan. I have all her hair bows clipped to a string that hangs in her closet. I needed another brilliant idea like that! ;)

Later that day, I came across an extra set of plastic shower curtain rings.

Here is where keeping "junk" just in case comes in handy!

What looks like a pile of hair bands...

is really a neatly contained array of beauty accessories!

Even my daughter can manage the snap/unsnap by herself!

And that works for me too!

For other great ideas, head over to Rocks In My Dryer.

Hmmm ... I wonder if I still have the rings from our old shower curtain. My daughter could definitely use some hairband help.

Good Idea!

We use door knobs here. I find hairbands everywhere. I think they reproduce when I am not looking...I just pick them up and put them on doorknobs all over the house and then collect them once a week and put them back in a drawer.

I like your idea better.

What a fantastic idea! I am on my way to find a shower curtain ring right now!

That is a great idea! My latest desperate attempt has been to put them around a paper towel tube, but I'm thinking it won't last long since it's not incredible sturdy for little hands to be using.

coincidence? I just crossed a milestone in the girls' bathroom with hair stuff too! I'll have to take a picture and post it...
