One Way You Didn't Think of Using a Hanger

Yes metal hangers are great to hang jeans and cloths on but I bet you never thought of using them to hold your headbands! And here is how it works:

1. Find a metal hanger
2. Pull the middle and top(where the hook is)and stretch it far as it can go
3. Bend hanger so that it makes a "U" shape
4. Take hook and pull through other side
5. Now you can add your head bands to the middle section and hang the headband holder where ever you want :)

I know it may not look that attractive as is, but I find if you add colorful duct tape to it and rap it around the hanger from one end to another it becomes colorful and cute.

P.S. This also helps the headbands retain their shape :)

Jam Jars and Piggy Banks

What could piggy banks and jam jars possibly have in common? Clear jars are great to have around and store things in; like cotton balls, hair ties, brushes, mascara, etc. But if you go out and buy them you can spend a pretty penny on JARS very quickly. Getting three, you just dropped $45(and you already had some in your refrigerator!) That's right, tare off those labels and give them a good once over in the sink and you have glass jars, of every size, at your fingertips. I use jam jars, pickle jars, salsa jars, you name it! The jars are a great way to clean up all of those little things rolling around in your drawers and cabinets.  So to answer the question; jam jars keep the money in your piggy bank ;)

This is how I use some of my glass jars!
- Hair ties 
- Elastic headbands
- Hair clips
- Mascara
- Make-up brushes

P.S. This is also really great for at work or your desk. Put pens, pencils, markers and things in a jar for a central location for all of your writing utensils. (You can also use tall sturdy glasses)
