A Few Makeup Storage Ideas....

Hey Everyone! About a week or so ago, I was at Staples and decided to pick up a few desktop organizers to store some of my makeup since my beauty station was becoming a little cluttered. Now I am not saying this idea originated from me, I'm sure you guys have seen these other places as these are common products.

What I brought:

Listed for $10.99 online; Was $9.99 in store. I got it for 1/2 off during a sale.

Listed for $5.49; I got it for 1/2 off during a sale.

How I put it to use:

My babies needed a cleaning :(
I went back the next day and brought two more of each since they were on sale!

When I first moved into my own apartment I was hell bent on purchasing some Glade Flameless Candles. The idea of creating the illusion of candles minus the danger of them had me sold. Little did I know they'd get discontinued. :( But I found a way to put the clear cups to use! (Frown turning upside down) :)

How I put it to use:

From Left to Right: Lip pencils; Mascaras; & NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils
The purpose of this post is to encourage you guys to be creative and make use of what you have! Everything can be used for "something else", other than its original intended purpose. It's up to you to discover what that "something else" is!


  1. I like the last one...awesome idea!!! Thx =)

  2. This is an excellent idea and very similar to the re-purposing I do as well. i reuse the glass candle holders from Bath and Body Works as holders for my makeup. This is an excellent post with cost effective ideas everyone can use.
