Hooray, I’m still spring cleaning. I’m so sorry if you were waiting for an interesting post to pop up on this blog because today is not the day.
I decided to tackle a super small but nagging Spring Cleaning To Do: organizing my hair accessories. Mind you, I have hardly any so the fact I’ve slapped this into it’s own blog post shows just how boring my life is.
I have one of those plastic 3-drawer thingys from Target, that I bought a few years back. I pulled out the drawers and took a gander at what I was storing in there.
I snagged the clear plastic bags from my button collection, since they always come in those and I’m too lazy to toss them. The striped bag (which was a freebie from American Eagle years ago) now corrals my assortment of bobby pins. Finally, I found a carabiner on an old set of keys and snapped together my massive collection of hair ties.
Side note: Last summer, I bought new hair ties with the rubber backing on the inside. You should too, they are NICE.
Anyway, on to the next drawer:
Lame, I know. I got rid of my soft headbands (since I haven’t worn them in years) and now this drawer only holds two headbands. But, at least they are easy to find and harder to snap in half.
The last drawer is for my earring collection, which obviously doesn’t fall under hair accessories but oh well, I had to move on. My collection is teeny tiny, I have 12 pair. I like it that way. I’ve gotten in the habit of saving the little cards the earrings come on so I can stash them more neatly. And just in case you are wondering, no, the cards don’t match where the earrings are purchased from. They are just the ones I remembered to hold onto and they rotate around. My sterling silver hoops got plopped in another button bag with random earring backs that were rolling around in the drawer before.
ANOTHER side note: I’m planning to get a few more every day studs or hoops that are more sturdy than the cheapo ones from Forever21 (ie: the adorable anchor pairs, which turn my ears green after one shower!). I’ve never been one to change out my earrings daily and with my coaching each afternoon, it’s most unlikely that I’ll wear anything dangly on a day to day basis. So, I’m on the hunt for a few more pairs – I’m thinking Kohls would be good/cheap place for some?
A THIRD side note: If I were psycho, I would have considered making my own cute matching/coordinating cards with fun scrap paper and card stock. I’m still thinking about it but haven’t done anything because I’m ridiculously lazy.
I stashed the drawers back in their home and called it a day. I have a second little 3-drawer thingy that holds all of my bracelets and necklaces in an abhorrent tangled mess. I’m avoiding it for now.
