Another blogger posted her tips for organization, and I was completely inspired. (AKA I had to run out and buy exactly what she had.)
About a year ago, I bought two acrylic cases for my makeup, and I used to keep it on my bathroom counter top, My husband HATED the look of it of the counter, so I had to compromise and take them down. The cases were really cute, but just did not hold a lot, which was a pain. I had to store all of my non-essentials elsewhere.
I started storing my cases in the cabinet below one of the sinks in our master bathroom. Once it was there, I stopped keeping it organized, and in the last year I accumulated a lot more products. I have so much overflow of makeup the acrylic cases just did not work for me anymore.
My overflow goes into my MAC traincase, a basket, bathroom drawers, and a Hello Kitty bag. It’s just a mess.
After seeing a blog post about cheap organization from blogger faceoftheday7, (original blog post here), I was inspired to fix my own disorganization problem. She mentioned she got her own plastic cases from Target, that were twice the size of what I already had. I went to Target yesterday and picked them up.
The drawers of the new cases are wider and deeper and I don’t have to hide so much of my makeup elsewhere. I still have overflow, but I have faster, easier access to more of my makeup which is wonderful.
The blogging community is awesome, and I’m glad I could find such an inexpensive solution for my disorganization problem through someone else’s post.
Where do you keep your makeup? Are you organized?
