Two Easy Ways to Corral Hair Bands

I can open a drawer a million times and the mess doesn’t bother me.

At least not enough for me to do anything about it.

And then…

I can’t explain it. Something snaps.

I find myself saying to no one in particular, “what kind of animals live in this house? Why is this drawer such a gross disaster?”


I have a silverware tray in a bathroom drawer to organize my daughter’s hair stuff.

As you can see, it’s working super well.

*sigh*

Handy Husband’s idea for organizing this drawer was short hair. That idea was met by an epic level of eye rolling by our 10-year-old daughter.

*sigh*

Thank goodness HGTV had a better idea! It was to use a binder ring to store hair bands. Clever, but, of course, that was one random office supply I did not have on hand.

I did have a carabiner though!

This simple solution has been working great for my 10-year-old to use to hold her hair bands.

If you don’t have a carabiner, then one of these cheap shower rings also works well, I discovered.


Not all of my organization ideas stick, but simple and easy-to-use solutions seem to work best.

I’m happy this idea is holding strong after several weeks, but ask me again in a year!

If you have a simple way to organize hair accessories, let me know!
