Joining a color guard team comes with plenty of perks: you get great exercise, build important teamwork and discipline skills, make friendships that will last a lifetime, and have tons of fun. But color guard also comes with gear — and lots of it. Here are some ideas to help you store your color guard equipment. If you’re tired of having flags, rifles, and/or sabres leaning against the wall in your garage or closet, you can try making your own organizer out of PVC pipe. Simply cut six 20-inch lengths of PVC that is four inches in diameter. Then, screw the pipe lengths together and stand them up on one end wherever you want to store your equipment. Now you have an organizer you can stand your flags and rifles in for neater, less cluttered storage! Storing hair and makeup materials is another challenge many color guard members face. You can make storing makeup a breeze with a custom hair and makeup cart. To do this, you need a small rolling storage cart and a metal kitchen utensil holder. Attach the utensil holder to the side of the cart with zip ties to create the perfect spot to store hot tools like straighteners or curling irons. You can label the shelves of the storage cart to categorize the things stored in each, like “Face,” “Hair,” or “Nails.” Using smaller boxes or dividers on the shelves to keep similar items together will help you stay organized. With this rolling cart, you can keep all your beauty supplies in one place, right where you need them. It’s even portable, so you can take it with you to performances and competitions!
