Archive for the ‘Organization’ Category

Again, inspired by some of the wonderful ladies out there on the intertubes, I’ve discovered something wonderful about beauty organization and efficiency: they’re connected!

Yes, it’s true, the more organized you are, the more efficient your morning routine can be.

Let’s take a look at what I started with:


This first pic is my messy bathroom, with my products and tools lying around.  The second pic is my ever growing collection of make-up.  It doesn’t fit in one bag any more and whenI’m looking for a particular color of shadow, I’m constantly searching through the bag.

My first idea was to get several plastic divider-type things to organize my drawers. Then I thought, “What would be really great would be if I could buy a vanity.  But I don’t have room for a vanity.”  But then I realized…. “Wait… I already have a vanity!”

Of course, most of you probably won’t have a vanity lying around in your house, but I just happened to have an empty one in my guest bedroom which was part of a set of bedroom furniture my parents gave me.  I then went out and found plenty of drawer organizing tools at my local Target and this was the result!

The first pic is of the middle drawer.  As my collection grows, I will probably move my eyeshadows to a separate drawer and use this middle drawer just for the daily essentials.  But isn’t it fun!  I open up my drawers and it looks like a beauty counter!

I went on and on about how excited I was about this space all my own to my husband, but I won’t do that here.  Suffice it to say, I am much more organized, it makes things easier, and my morning routine is more efficient.
