My make-up drawer is a total and complete disaster. When I buy new make-up the old stuff doesn’t necessarily get thrown out. More often than not it just gets pushed to the back of the drawer. So, in the words of Christian Siriano, “It’s a hot tranny mess.”
I have dried up tubes of mascara and the lip gloss I wore to my wedding. Umm.. Yeah. My wedding was three and a half years ago. Don’t worry. I’m not still using that lip gloss. I just happened to find it in the back of the drawer.
I have known for a while that I needed to fix this and that clearly my system of just tossing everything into the drawer isn’t working out for me these days. So the other day when I was at the dollar store I found some cute little baskets that I thought would be perfect. And they are. Mostly. The drawer isn’t quite big enough for the number of baskets I put in there, but luckily they’re soft plastic so they bend a little to make room for everyone.
Now everything has a place. This should make my mornings go more smoothly. Especially now that there’s a baby so I only have 25 seconds to myself anyway.
P.S. These baskets are from Dollar Tree and they came three to a pack for $1. Can’t beat that.
Cost of organizers – $3.
Not having to dig for my eye liner – Priceless.
