Thursday Organization Inspiration

Hi all! I am so excited to be a guest blogger over at Liz's Lovely Life today!

two items of your choice from Poppy and Pippa!!

 Now, On To Thursday Organization Inspiration 
I'm going to share a quick and easy tip for organizing your make-up.

Up until recently I was using a small three-drawer unit for all of my make up.
It was working but, I had to take all of the drawers out and line them up on the counter when I was getting ready. The drawers were pretty small so I had to keep some of my make-up in my bathroom drawer. If you saw my post last week  you know I cleaned out my drawer so, I needed some place for ALL of my make-up to be stored.

That's where Pinterest comes in - as always. I found this great way to store art supplies in a picnic silverware caddy. I am in no way an artist but I do have things that needed organizing. I found mine at Gordman's for $9.99. It works perfectly for all of my "It's time to look presentable and smell good" stuff.
As you can see, I have all of my make-up, brushes, deodorant and body lotion stored in this basket. I keep this stored under my bathroom sink just like the drawer unit. Of course, this organizational moment led to another - cleaning out under the sink! It was easy. I purchased several small containers from the dollar store (it's under the sink - who cares what they look like as long as they are functional) and sorted products into three categories - supplies we both use, products I use and products he uses. We are very low maintenance people so we use very few products when we get ready in the morning. So, it worked perfectly to put the "sometimes" products in the back although they are still easily accessible.

I hope you feel inspired to make your home a little more organized!

I love this idea! I have a small caddy that's similar that I'm going to organize my makeup in from now on. Thanks for sharing!
