If you have girls or are a girl you understand that the hair care drawer in your bathroom can become quite the disaster very quickly. I know that in my case I love to do my daughters hair. But as we collected more hair accessories I realized that I was spending far too much time in the morning trying to find the right color barrette, or the right size of rubber band to put in her hair.

I went to Wal Mart in search of a solution and came up with the junk drawer organizer. It was inexpensive and has a lot of places to separate the individual colors and sizes of hair accessories. I organized the drawer according to color because that is usually what I base my choices on. I also organized rubber bands according to type and size. Because for me size was important, depending on the style I chose to do in my daughters hair.

I still have t
o reorganize it on occasion because kids will be kids and don't always put things away perfectly. But I would say that 90% of the time I save at least five minutes every morning hunting down hair accessories. And if you're a mom you understand just how important five minutes can be. Now go get organized!


  1. I could totally use this idea. I just put mine all in a box but that isn't much better than just in the drawer. It just keeps them from get wet and tooth paste remnants. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Another great way to organize a hair drawer, office drawer, craft drawer, or tool drawer is to use old items you have around your house: stackable ice cube trays, old muffin tin, egg cartons, etc.

  3. Absolutely,getting creative with things around your house is a great way to organize in a savvy and inexpensive way. Thanks for the comment.
