The next person to grab a headband or bow would dig to the bottom and the whole mess would fall all over the floor. We would come home from school and the bathroom looked like a complete disaster after our morning rush. It's hard standing at the sink trying to wash you hands, while trying traversing a sea of pokey headbands. I had seen on Pinterest the idea of making a headband holder out of either an empty oatmeal box container, or a roll of paper towels. Some of these things were crazily decorated, and a little on the gaudy side. Okay a LOT on the gaudy side. Not only did I not want to gift wrap a roll of paper towels, I didn't want to eat 12,000 bowls of oatmeal just to empty my pretty full container of quick oats. Suddenly.. it HIT me. I knew EXACTLY what was a perfect head band size. Though it's original intention for use was no where near close to what I was going to use it for... but enter in the tubular toilet paper holder!!
I ran to the store and picked up one of these lovely stainless steel toilet paper storage towers for under $10. It turns out this was the absolutely PERFECT size for headbands. I immediately pull out by drawer of tangled headband-ness and went to work. Look how beautiful it turned out!

Check out our headbands now! It sits nicely on the back of our little stack of drawers looking all organized and easy to get to! I so love this idea more than the other options that were out there. It's really given our tiny bathroom not only a pop of color, but solved one of our daily getting ready issues with organization! Hooray.
