I wouldn't stay that I'm an organized person by nature but it is something I strive for. I feel like it's something I'm always inspired to do but I get overwhelmed and don't know where to start. I've learned it's usually better for me to start with one thing at a time and then move on to the next.
Bringing me to the nature of this post- makeup. I used to keep all of my makeup in a cosmetics bag. It was seriously annoying- I wouldn't say I use a ton of makeup but it took me forever to find things and it would end up stuffed to the rims and I could barely keep it closed.
When we moved into this house and I saw our bathroom vanity had drawers, I knew exactly what I was going to use it for. Perfect for keeping all of my makeup and hair brushes in one place and laid out so I could see everything. The next step was finding drawer organizers that would fit. I initially thought about going to the Container Store but as much as I love it there it ended up being too pricey. Then one day I was roaming through Marshalls and I came across a drawer organizer from OXO Good Grips. Probably meant for kitchen drawers, I bought it hoping it would fit. Lucky for me, it did and even better it was inexpensive (less than $20) and came with separate dividers which I use to separate out my different makeup products.
As you can see I made some dividers larger than others to keep my brushes, hairbands, etc. Finally everything in one place where I can see it :)
