Makeup Storage Idea: Think Outside The Kitchen!

So I am 80% complete renovating my woman cave a.k.a makeup room-slash-home office. This new setup called for serious downsizing. It helps that I hate clutter to the core so saying adios to most of the makeups and tools I hardly use wasn’t melodramatic at all. No, I’m not panting.

Now the next challenge, how do I re-organize my stash? While I did splurge on my new dresser, I want to be creatively frugal on some other things.

Kitchen section you said? why not?!

While at TJ Maxx last month, I found this metal kitchen utensil drawer organizer(s). The size fits my drawers and the dividers are perfect for holding palettes or loose eyeshadows.

About $7 each.

Drawer liners add an unexpected pizzaz to your drawers! I got this black and white paisley print liner from Target (about $6 each, 1 roll, 18 x 4″).

Protect your drawers from stains, use drawer liners!

Now my makeups I couldn’t be more happy with a clutter-free nook.

More organizational ideas coming your way,

    Great idea! I just totally cleared out the drawer organizers at both Office Depot and Ross and I still have a few more to go. Will definitely try to find something similar to this.

    Love the idea! I found a cute bamboo silverware tray at TJ Maxx that I have some of my smaller items in. It works well for liners, eye shadows and small items. 🙂

      Awesome! Now I should be in the lookout for that bamboo tray!
