1. Install a magnetic strip in your bathroom drawer.
Starting off with the most favoured of methods to store bobby pins is with a magnetic strip. These strips can be placed in drawers, bathrooms walls, shelves or even window sills — wherever is most convenient for you. This is a great way to keep track of those runaway bobby pins.
2. An alternative use for shot glasses.
Most of us have those old shot glasses stored in the back of the cabinet. Whether they are mixed and matched glasses, they make a great holder for bobby pins and lots of them too!
3. Keep your old Tic Tac containers, add some washi tape and…voila!
Check this out! These guys are perfect for being thrown in handbags, purses or even car consoles. Portable little holders for when you’re out and about and need a hand in holding your hairstyles.
4. You know those containers for paper clips…
Well, they serve a purpose for paper clips so why not bobby pins too, they are just as important!
5. An empty lip balm container? Ingenious!
This is a unique way to store those few bobby pins when out and about — another great way to have portable bobby pins without them being lost in the mix of the bottom of your handbag! We’ve all been there before.
