I happen to use a lot of bobby pins, what with my hairstyle and all, whether I am wearing a quiff or creating my victory rolls…a bobby pin is never too far away from my reach…Having said all that, the worst thing about these clever little grips…is that they seem to be scattered all over the place and especially on the floor!…wherever I go, there is a trail of grips behind me!  So whilst gathering them all up and placing them on the table next to where I blog…I thought to myself…i wonder how I could store these a bit better! so I have found these brilliant ideas that I thought would be good to share with you…

This is such a cool idea…attaching a magnetic strip to your wall or perhaps on the inside of the drawer or under a table…hopefully the magnetism will pull them up off the carpet to save you the job! 😉

Now here’s a nifty storage solution and a great excuse to go and eat a lot of TIC TAC’s, especially if you have a lot of pins…you could even get your nail varnish out and paint them in shades of green like this clever idea above!…You could have a box for different colours…great fun! get the kids involved! oh perhaps not little kids! they might eat them! (the grips not the tic tacs)

Or how about, as and when you find them, just sticking them in your hair, like so! (above)

Just whatever happens DO NOT try and hoover them up!

Because no matter how much you try…

Even if you sweep over them 100 times!

You will always have to bend down and pick them up in the end!

You soooooo know it! 😉

Have you got any good tips for bobby pin storage?

    I like the bobby pins on a magnetic strip idea. I always buy a whole pack and never fail to end up with just 3. Where do all the rest go?

      ahh bless you my lovely…i will get around to taking some more pictures soon, thing is…sometimes I think that I have blogged about everything in my home and I feel that it might be boring,…I haven't done as much as I would like with the caravans due to my hubbies poor health, but I will definitely take note and try to post some home decor again soon ;)Love Happy x
