I “keep” my bobby pins in a makeup pouch, but really they end up everywhere.
They’re bookmarking the notepad I write in. One is substituting for a paperclip elsewhere. I use them to hold my DIY foam hair rollers, and sometimes they turn up under my pillow.
Once in a while I’ll locate one by accidentally stepping on it, or half a dozen by doing a load of laundry. 9 times out of 10, they are just lost in my hair. That 10th time, though? Thieving fairies.
Let me tell you how notorious bobby pins are for vanishing into thin air. I once picked up a pack from the store, got home, and discovered HALF the pins were missing from the package!
Can you believe some fool stole 50 cents worth of bobby pins? Like, really? What are you planning to do with half a pack? You lose that many in a week. Come on.
Needless to say, I double check every time I purchase, now.
