I try to keep all my organization not only functional, but attractive as well.
But you know what? If people aren't going to see it, who cares if it's not attractive!?
I (heart) bobby pins. I use them all. the. time.
Now my daughter uses them all. the. time.
However, it seems like I have to buy a new package every other week.
I lose them like crazy!
I knew that I needed some better organization to keep them in place.
No. I would have to dig in the bathroom closet for that. And let's face it...I'm lazy.
The medicine cabinet?
It would make sense, since I do my hair in front of it every morning.
No. It's already pretty full.
Then I had one of those lightbulb moments.
I went to Walmart and bought one of those magnetic strip rolls. The ones with a magnet on one side and sticky tape on the other.
I took everything out of my medicine cabinet and noticed that the mirror was much larger than the opening for the medicine cabinet.
I decided to put magnetic strips on the very top, the bottom, and in the middle where there were no shelves.
Cut the strips to size and press them on firmly.
Then add your bobby pins!
Then I thought, "Hmmm...you know...we can never find tweezers or clippers in this house. I wonder if it'll hold that, too?"
Is it pretty?
Is it highly functional?
And I haven't lost a bobby pin yet.
