Bathroom cabinets can become a catch-all for anything makeup and/or hair related. That said, it’s easy to lose (or simply misplace) all of those tiny bobby pins and hair ties (the two things you probably use the most!). Here’s how to avoid that mess: Use door pockets to contain the clutter. Below you’ll see I sorted ALL of my makeup and hair accessories by type/category and then stored them in labeled over-the-door door pockets. I honestly can’t remember the last time I couldn’t find a bobby pin or hair tie (each one has its own pocket- its impossible for these thingies to get lost now). It’s all about “everything having a home!”
