Nikki works with Elizabeth, the Professional Organizer #13

Nikki’s blow dryer, curling iron, styling gel, and brushes and combs won’t all fit together in the beach front drawer; that’s why they ending up spread all over the countertop. Elizabeth’s beach vacation organizing system calls easy access storage places beach front, a little harder to get to places, one block from the beach, and places that require a bit of effort, Ocean view.
Elizabeth tells Nikki she will need to store her hair toys in a beach bag and bring them to the beach, the countertop, to play with them. So they put all those items in a bin, which Elizabeth says is like a beach bag, and put the bin in the cabinet under the sink. This space would not be very convenient if Nikki had to bend down and get each item one by one. However, because she can just grab the bin, put it on the counter, use the stuff in it, then put it all away at once; it will actually be more convenient for Nikki than having her hair things in several different places.
As Nikki put her hair stuff in the bin, the cords get all tangled up with each other. Elizabeth showed Nikki her “mini bungee cords” to solve the problem. They aren’t really bungee cords; they are little girl ponytail elastics with beads on each end. They work just like a mini bungee cord when you wrap them around cords. They can even be wrapped around the appliance as well to attach the cord to the item.
