Some hacks have been around so long that you forget they aren't common practices. This organization hack comes from my parents' home, and it saves me a lot of searching for small toiletry utensils
Ever find yourself looking desperately for tweezers or nail clippers in a cluttered drawer or cabinet?
Small metal tins work wonders keeping items contained. I especially like the metal Band-Aid tins, but they seem to be hard to locate these days.
The tins with hinged lids are best for bathroom drawer storage (as long as they stay dry). I use an Altoids tin for safety pins, hair pins & elastics, and extra buttons.
They're great for travel, easy to locate in drawers, puncture proof, and they make me want to put things back when I'm finished.
A motivated hacker with a power drill and a utilitarian sense of style could combine these with a magnetic knife holder for colorful, versatile, out-of-baby's-reach, off-the-counter bathroom storage.
How do you battle chaos in the bathroom cabinets? Maxwell's demon?
