Organize hair accessories

Hair accessories can become a disorganized mess. You can organize them in over-the-door pocket shoe organizers, baby-wipes containers or shoeboxes, or clip them onto strips of ribbon tied onto a ponytail holder (used as a hanger). You can make a beautiful wall display by attaching hair clips and bows onto a DIY French memo board. For a tutorial visit mymagicmom.com/hair-bow-holder-instructions.
The first two reader tips share other ways to organize hair accessories:

 

Paper towel roll:

I take all of my ponytail holders and slide them onto the empty cardboard tube to keep them together. Pringles containers can be decorated with contact paper, and scrunchies can slide on and be stored inside, too. — Gina, Texas

Bobby pins:

I store my daughter’s bobby pins in a magnetic paper clip holder. — Kelly G., Florida

Fireplace on your TV:

My husband just found a selection on Netflix called “Fireplace for Your Home.” It’s an hour of video of an actual fireplace. It won’t make me feel warmer on a cold night, but it cracked me up! — Constance, New Jersey

Easy card access:

When I’m at the checkout counter, I have a hard time grabbing the right card to pay for my stuff. I finally added a little colored duct tape tab to each of my cards, so I can identify which card I want and pull it out quickly. — Tamara B., New York

Recipe cards:

I put recipe cards inside a Ziploc bag when I’m using them so I can read the recipe without having to worry about ruining the card with spilled ingredients. — Lillian, Illinois

Reuse lunchboxes:

I use my son’s old insulated lunchbox as a toy container for the car. It holds small toys and activities, and it’s easy for him to carry, too. The older metal lunchboxes would be great to store all kinds of things, such as sewing supplies, stationary, manicure items, etc. — Becca, California

Easy heart cake:

Here’s a way to make a super-easy Valentine’s cake on a shoestring budget:
Pour cake batter (from a mix or homemade, it doesn’t matter) in a round pan AND a square pan. Bake. When cool, remove the cakes from the pans and place the square cake in front of you, oriented like a diamond. Then cut the round cake in half and place the halves on each of the “top” sides of the diamond to form a heart. Frost it all together for an easy and economical Valentine’s Day cake! — Traci, California
