Hello again, savvy savers! For this weeks Organizational Ideas post, I wanted to share a quick post with you all as to how I organize and store my personal makeup and cosmetic stash!
Did you know that the average makeup and cosmetic item only has a one year shelf life, once used or utilized? And that the number one reason for skin breakouts was contaminated cosmetic products or tools? These are several reasons why I generally like to keep my makeup and cosmetic items in neat, tip-top shape? How do I do this, by using inexpensive office supply organizational desk boxes in my bathroom to store my cosmetic and hygiene items!
I use Sterlite Office Organizer boxes, sitting on two of three shelves on my behind-the-toilet organizer in my hall bathroom. Each box retails for less than $4.00 each at Walmart, and each box holds over a basket of cosmetics! These boxes despite their small size currently hold over four gallons of makeup, razors, facial products, hair items, and more! I love that each drawer is sub-divided, and as the boxes feature clear front drawers, I can easily spot what is inside each compartment without having to label the boxes!
My favorite drawer, my lip gloss drawer, though used most often, is just as accessible as every other compartmentalized section on this shelving unit! I find this method cuts down on clutter, prevents sink drawers from being bombarded with products never to see the light of day, and for me, the more I see products, samples, or items the more likely I will use them before expiration, or seasonally! So, for me this is my go-to makeup storage and organizational system!
I hope my drawers inspire you to sort through and organize your own makeup stash at home!
Here’s to organizing!
