As a busy mom of two young kids, getting everyone ready in the mornings can sometimes be stressful. Between preparing lunches and getting the kids dressed, mornings can definitely get pretty hectic around here. However, to help make my mornings run more smoothly, I decided to organize some of my personal care products using a DIY Magnetic Strip Organizer. It is an easy way to keep some of my essentials readily available. Between my magnetic strip organizer and my NEW Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected Sonic Electric Toothbrush from Target, getting ready in the morning is totally fun again! This toothbrush comes with a handy dandy app that lets me track my oral care goals, as well as monitor my brushing effectiveness.
When the toddler is throwing a tantrum in the mornings, the last thing I want to do is start fumbling for a bobby pin. That’s why I love these magnetic strip organizers. They keep my personal care essentials (bobby pins, nail file, tweezers, etc.) easily accessible and in plain sight, giving me the opportunity to quell those tantrums before they get too far!
DIY Magnetic Strip Organizer
Here’s what you’ll need to get started with this project:
- magnetic sheets
- decorative duct tape
- utility knife
- double-sided mounting tape
Start by cutting long strips out of the magnetic sheet. I made two sheets that were each about 1″x8″.
Place a piece of the duct tape on the magnetic strip, allowing the duct tape to overhang on all sides of the magnetic strip.
Flip the magnetic strip over and use the utility knife to trim away the excess duct tape on all four sides.
I actually made two of these magnetic strips. One will hold my bobby pins, while the other will hold a variety of other items.
Grab a piece of mounting tape and adhere it to the back of the magnetic strip.
Place two pieces of mounting tape on each magnetic strip and adhere it to the wall.
Now, it’s time to add little metal objects to our magnetic organizer strips. I added some bobby pins, nail file, tweezers, and more! Isn’t this such a useful addition to the bathroom? Keep in mind that you can personalize this project with your choice of duct tape, length of magnetic strip, etc.
These magnetic strips definitely streamline my mornings in terms of getting myself ready to leave the house. Speaking of smooth mornings, the NEW Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected Toothbrush from Target is now part of my daily oral care routine. This innovative brush removes up to 10x more plaque and promotes healthier gums in just 2 weeks!
With the NEW Philips Sonicare FlexCare Connected toothbrush, I actually look forward to brushing my teeth, since it’s so much fun. This set comes with two different brush heads, a carrying case and a charging station.
There are so many neat features to this brush. The different modes (Clean, White, and Deep Clean) let you fine-tune your brushing experience to your specific needs. One of my favorite features of the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Connected toothbrush is the personalized, real-time feedback provided via the Philips Sonicare app. This app will let you know if you missed any areas while brushing and whether you’re applying too much pressure or using too much motion. With this brush, proper oral health is no longer a guessing game! With this brush and this app, you can be confident that you have cleaned your teeth properly!
I downloaded the Sonicare app onto my smartphone, which helps to improve my brushing technique and allows me track my brushing progress. Here’s a fun chart of one of my recent brushing experiences. Did you know you could set & monitor daily goals (whiter teeth, fresher breath, healthier gums) with personalized training and alerts along the way? You could even focus on specific issues noted by your dentist (accumulation of plaque, for example).
With this innovative and revolutionary toothbrush, I have achieved my healthiest, brightest smile ever!
Speaking of oral health, I have always been committed to taking care of my teeth. Here are some simple ways that I keep my teeth in top shape!
- Brush Teeth: Make sure to brush teeth twice per day. With the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected Toothbrush, brushing doesn’t feel like a chore – it’s actually fun!
- Floss: Floss every day to remove the food particles that brushing may have missed.
- Avoid Candies: Try to steer clear of those chewy, sugary candies. They tend to settle on the teeth and create cavities over time.
- Visit Dentist: Twice per year, visit the dentist for a complete check-up and professional cleaning. Also, visit the dentist whenever you have tooth/gum pain.
- Limit tea/coffee: Try to drink tea & coffee in moderation, as they can stain tooth enamel over time.
