Reader Solution: Hair Accessory Storage

Einat wrote in to share her storage solution for her daughter's hair accessories. We love that it allows her daughter to see everything at once herself and think this idea could be used for all kinds of bits and bobs you need to organize.

I have a 2-year-old daughter who loves her hair accessories (barrettes, pins, rubber bands, bows, headbands, etc.). I couldn't keep up with all of them until I found a great and simple organizational solution...

I purchased a jewelry hanger from The Container Store with different size, clear pockets. I color coded the items such as barrettes and rubber bands, etc. and placed them in the smaller pockets, and larger items such as headbands and even sunglasses were placed in the larger pockets.

The organizer is two-sided and hangs in my daughter's closet. When she wants to look through and pick out her hair accessories, I hang the organizer on the door knob (at her eye level). The organizer has see-through pockets so it is easy to see all of the items. When she's done, she can clean up the mess by herself.

Thanks for sharing this with Ohdeedoh, Einat. We love to see real-world, real-parent solutions!
