How to store bobby pins

Storage ideas for hair accessories
How to store (and not lose) bobby pins - that's a question that's haunting every girl (and boy) with long hair. Hair accessories are a pain to store in general, but hair pins take the trouble to a whole new level. As to myself - I resorted to cuteness, particularly cat cuteness in a form of this adorable storage tin - because even when there's just a single pin left (and you wonder where the hair pin black hole is), you still won't be able to help it & smile at the cats with umbrellas & handbags duo. 

I've tried so many ways of hoarding hair pins & grips in once place - but with no luck! I attempted to leave them on a tiny decorative saucer, I tried to keep the piece of card board they come with and pin them to it after every use (that lasted for about a day), I tried to have a separate section for them in my make-up drawer - nope, none of it worked for me. What is the secret of how not to lose them all then?

⇢ Place the tin/container in eyes' level
⇢ It has to be easy to open/close it
⇢ Preferably use one with a lid so your hair pins don't gather dust

⇢ Place it in a place where you frequently revisit - your bathroom counter, vanity table
⇢ Every time you put a bobby pin on a shelf/table/chair/bathroom sink/anywhere where it's not meant to be - try to make the conscious effort of getting up and putting it into it's real storage place
⇢ Don't throw your pins into your handbag just like that - have a separate pouch for them, or at least throw them into your make-up bag!
