Quick Tip To Keep Bobby Pins From Running Away!

Hello there! We've all been there: your hands are full of your hair, gathering it into a cute bun on top of your head. You need a bobby pin, but there are none to be found despite the fact you bought a pack of thirty pins. Thirty bobby pins have grown legs and ran away. The bobby pin bandit struck again. Whatever story you choose to believe, it will always be a mystery.

I found this idea on Pinterest (this is a recurrent theme on my blog, and in my daily life....) to use a Tic Tac container as a bobby pin holder. Genius. Pure genius. I was keeping my pins in a tiny polka dot zipper pouch. But a Tic Tac container is so small, portable, and convenient. Plus, you can decorate it however you want! I kept mine clear for now.

Whoever came up with this idea, I seriously love you. It seems so obvious, but I sure had never thought to do this! So much easier to keep them all in one place, and to keep in a purse. Love it!
