I work best when I am organized. The same goes for when I am doing my hair. Organization helps me stay focused on the task and keeps me from getting overwhelmed by it.
So I was so excited when I picked this vintage hair curler caddy up at a flea market, mostly because I love the name. Neat-n-Busy. The words the ’50s and ’60s used to advertise to women make me giggle a little.
I almost feel slightly patronized by it, like the woman who uses it is a busy little bee making herself beautiful and not much else. It makes me think of Betty Draper in Mad Men when her dad tells her in her dream,
“You’re a house cat. You’re very important and you have little to do.”
But I’m probably reading too much into it… 🙂 I love the caddy anyway.
After I got my International Convertible Hair Cut last week, I was so thrilled to start styling it at home. Then, after my first washing at home, I realized my hair tool kit at home was ill prepared. My round brushes were too big and my curlers were not the right kind for such a short hairstyle.
My Neat-n-Busy caddy is now set with the tools I need and sits proudly on the vanity.

Noodling around online I also found these adorable curler “hampers”. I may need to add “curler hamper” to my Ebay search notifications. If you are a collector, that is a great way to find things. You can set up your Ebay account to send you notifications when certain search keywords show up in a new listing. You can also tell it to leave out certain keywords in the search in case you keep getting notifications about items that have nothing to do with what you are looking for.
