DD was born with an insane amount of hair & it has continued to grow. Naturally, we have lots of clips, hair bands, elastic-y ties. Originally I was going to use ribbon across an old 8 x 10 frame with a funky fabric inside & then some cute mug hooks around the outside to try & contain everything (hang it on wall above changing table) but I am wondering whether or not that will 1) be easy to maintain & 2) truly keep everything organized enough to see what we have & 3) I will constantly be moving changing table to pick things up that fall while trying to get to an item.

I have checked out The Container Store & a few other places & haven't really found anything that truly seemed like it would be easy to keep organized.

Any ideas out there? I found this & love it but it is expensive.

I dont know about cute, but I use one of those clear plastic shoe organizers that hang on a door. I have one on DS's closet door. I keep his shoes, socks, and hat in it, among other little things that I like to keep out because we use them so much. I think they're about 10 bucks at wal mart.

have you tried looking in the office supply section at walmart or target? I have found that those little organizers for holding paper clips, pushpins etc are perfect for sorting and storing hair stuff.

I have a large purple square box with a handle, it has a sturdy little plastic flip lock on it. We've used it for years now, it works great. It lives in the bathroom, I keep a brush, comb, spray, and all the 50 billion hair things in it. I can just tell a child to grab the hair bucket and everything is in there.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

How about a little fishing tackle box? You could store bulkier things, like your brush in the bottom and have all your "hair stuff" together.
