As some of you knew, I went to work last Fall, after a long break (almost after three years). I was not fully prepared in some areas like my personal organization and one of the major areas was my hair accessories which included hair dryer, flat iron, and a messy spot right at the end of my bed. Not having a master bathroom next to our bedroom is not a cool feature in this old house. Over a time period I have accumulated and placed hair accessories conveniently by the end of my bed because, that is where the power outlet is.
I had used a sturdy plastic/vinyl bag to toss all my hair accessories, I often use to tie my hair. I do like to blow dry my hair and occasionally I would use the flat iron to straighten my hair close to my face line. The bobby pins, pony tails rings, head bands all were thrown together in a mess. As I went to work I would sit at the edge of my bed and work on my hair and in many occasions would get frustrated to find a pin or a pony tail ring.
I finally decided I needed to be more organize in this area to leave the house in peace to work, I bought few baskets and started to clean up. Now, Nicolette has a small bag to carry her bathing suite to pool (aka) hair do bag! which I used to store all my hair belongings. The use of new baskets, I feel like I am more organized. Hair accessories are accessible easily without having to do a blind sweeps to get a bobby pin or a pony tail band. I like the neat look. A big difference!
How do you stay organize with your accessories? Do you clean them out weekly, monthly, or yearly basis?
