Quick Tip: Hijab Storage Ideas

Looking for ideas to revamp your hijab storage? Here’s some tips from Amena, owner and founder of Pearl Daisy

Out with the old, in with the new.

Periodically clear your stash of hijabs that you have not reached for every quarter. Like they say, out of sight, out of mind. If you don’t seek it, you don’t miss it (I just made that up!)

There’s no point in hoarding hijabs that you no longer use. The only thing they do is take up storage. By clearing them periodically, you’ll have room for new hijabs with the same space.

You can donate the unused hijabs to charity or give them away to your family and friends. You can also make a fun get-together out of it. Get your gal pals together and swap hijabs over tea and biscuits. Someone else’s trash can become someone’s treasure.

The dividers that you see in the video can be purchased from Daiso for only $2. I believe it comes in different widths too.

Happy storing!
