Okay, so this WAS my bathroom drawer. Total. Flipping. Chaos. Right? I would get SO frustrated every morning when I was trying to get ready....
Where is my concealer?
Ugh... what happened to my brown headband I like?
The toothpaste is in here somewhere, right??
I finally decided that enough was enough. Armed with some Pinterest inspired ammo, I finally tackled that bathroom drawer into submission. ;)
I first had to decide what really needed to be in that bathroom drawer. Did I really need to have the razor blades in there that I change out every 3 weeks or so? No. Was it necessary to have that sparkly lotion that I probably hadn't worn in months in there? Not really. Anything that was not something I used everyday in my beauty routine went on a shelf in the closet in the hallway.
Okay, so this may be one of my favorite things that I did. A stick-on magnetic strip adhered to the inside of my drawer to store all my bobby pins on! How clever is that?? I cannot tell you how many times I have spent 5 minutes or more digging around in the bottom of my drawer and that make-up bag trying to just find a couple of bobby pins. I know all you ladies out there feel me on that one!
Speaking of that make-up bag, I ditched that for a utensil tray. I picked up this used utensil tray at a yard sale for a quarter. Frugal and clever. ;)
I also went through my make-up and set aside all of my eye make-up. I only occasionally wear eye make-up, so I didn't see any use in having my eyeshadow, eyeliners, and mascara in the utensil tray. They all went inside a smaller make-up bag that I tucked into one side of the drawer.
And voila! A clean, organized, and efficient bathroom drawer. Everything is visually available. There is no more digging. No more asking myself, "Hmmmmm... where is that?"
I used another cheap plastic container to store all of my headbands in. For us gals with shorter hair, headbands are our ponytail holders. ;)
All this organization for less than $2.50!
Please feel free to send me your Pinterest organization pins to help me with this one!
I would GREATLY appreciate it! ;)
