Tip for the Day: How I Store my Hair Accessories

When I was young, my mom's idea of making me happy is not by buying me Barbie dolls nor new clothes and shoes (I'm a hand-me-down baby! :P), she knew I'm not the type who would want her parents to spend all the money for the youngest kid in the family!  Yes, I was a good girl!  Wait!  Before you react, I was a good girl because I AM a VERY good girl now!  *proud*  hahaha

Okay, back to the story, my mom, a simple housewife, who has a budget to feed all 4 kids would spend some of the "family budget" in buying me hair clips and ribbons!  When I toured my parents around Shenzhen, China a couple of years ago, she was busy haggling with a seller and at the end, I realized she was buying me a Swarovski-studded hair tie!  She got a good deal!  It was gorgeous and it was super touching on my part as my mom isn't the type who would go waste money on something that's not a necessity!  We have to admit, Swarovski-studded hair tie will never be a necessity! 

Simple things matter to me.

And because they matter, I take into consideration on taking care of them!  I have hair ties and clips that were with me through the years years!  They have a value attached to it as they were gifted to me by my sister, my mom, my friends, etc...

Here's how I store all my hair accessories, aside from making sure they are clean and safe, I also want to make sure I can see them easily! 


TADAH!
I originally have an "all-black" version but it died on me after 8 long years.  I head up to SM Department Store and purchased a red and white one!

Approx Php500.00-600.00 
(approx $11.60-14.00)

  2. Wow you have a lot! I was eyeing on these at SM but I didn't really bought it because I can't think of what to put inside. Do you have any suggestions on how I can maximize it's use?

    1. I think they only have these in black and red and this is the biggest size!
      How to maximise the use? You can put accessories or jewelries, if you want, makeup as well so you can see them easily. Some would put ribbons for arts and crafts! :) Whatever you're good at, I'm sure you'll find ways to keep the stuff you love!

    1. Ah...it is a bit bulge-y but not that much! Good idea on acrylics! But I'm looking for something that's also a bit space saving :)

  5. Wow! I used to have a lot of accessories too! And my mom is also fond of buying me such things but as I grow, there are some of them that I don't use anymore so I gave them to my cousins younger than me and they won't be just stocked in my cabinet. I just kept the valuable ones and those that I really use. I put them in a plastic box, the one with handle so dust and dirt won't be in contact :D

    1. Nice idea with the plastic box, well if you don't plan to use it, that's the best way to keep it! In my case, I use them on most days so I like seeing them at once and easy to reach!
