Pin it!

So maybe you don't have this problem, but my kids share towels. If it's within arms reach it's fair game. This grosses me out!! I have tried various methods of keeping one towel to one child and nothing has seemed to work. My awesome friend Danielle suggested that I use little plastic clips on each towel as a visual reminder that each person has their OWN towel to use!! We took a quick trip to our local grocery and found the clips, but they were a little bit more expensive that I wanted to spend. We then went down the laundry aisle and agreed that wooden clothes pins would work just as nicely. Below is what I did to make these super easy (and very non-creative) towels markers...don't you want to know if it worked?????

Scroll down to find out!!!

Supplies: wooden clothes pins + a black sharpie

total cost: $3 (I already had the sharpie) - I'll be using the leftover pins

for a much cooler craft to be done at a later date!!

Easy- now I did try to "color code" the pins but the marker didn't really work, so I left the rest plain.

Side note: my handy husband took 2 old pieces of trim and screwed in 5 coat hangers to make a DIY towel hanger in our bathroom. It is the easiest way to hang up our towels-the problem is keep one towel to one child!!

Close up of the finished pin-super simple!!

- The final result-

**Please note that these towels all look the same and I am aware of this!! See what I have to work with**

I am HAPPY to report that the clothespin experiment has been successful!! The kids actually LOVE using them!! What an easy, cheap solution!!!!
