Recently we were in Anthropologie, and my daughter saw an elastic ball that she loved. It was cute, but then I looked at the price and the thing cost $15. Immediately, I thought to myself, I can make that. Seriously, I just can’t pay $15 for a ball of elastics.
But the organizer in me saw an opportunity! When we want elastics for our hair, we can never, ever find them. They get used as sling-shots by my son, the cat eats them or they just disappear somehow.
So when we got home, I dug out a styrofoam ball we had, and my daughter went on a house hunt for elastic bands. Then we just wrapped the elastics around the ball, and voila! All elastics are in one place!
