I did my first little organizing project a couple of weeks ago. It's not much but it's something that needed to be done. Bathroom drawers! I didn't need to do all of them just my makeup drawer & hair/nail/misc. junk drawer. Naturally, I forgot to take before pics. Just imagine the average junk drawer with stuff stuffed in it. That was mine.
This is it now. I bought the silver mesh looking storage containers in the kitchen section at Bed, Bath & Beyond. They're not really mesh, they're metal or something. I had some little white baskets that I used but the holes were too big &stuff would creep through & make a bigger mess. The container that I have the nail polish & hair stuff in was recycled. I have no idea where it came from but it fits in the drawer perfectly. Next up is my makeup drawer. I had some baskets in this drawer but nothing was organized & half the time I had to dig to get to what I was looking for. I bought a silverware tray at Bed, Bath & Beyond. It's the same material as the containers in the other drawer. The divided compartments are great. I have all of my makeup brushes in one, mascaras & eyeliners in another, eye shadow together by color, etc. This is the makeup I use regularly. I also have one of those big things from Sephora that has shadows, lip glosses & all sorts of stuff. I have it in the cabinet under the sink because it's really too big to fit anywhere else.
In addition to the silverware tray, I have 2 other smaller containers that fit perfectly in the drawer & still leave room for my brush & combs. So far this is working out great. It's easy to find what I'm looking for & I have no problem putting it back where it belongs. I keep all of my hair products & lotions & things in the cabinet under my sink. I'd like to get some sort of shelving system for that area because there's so much wasted space. I need to look into that.
Another minor organizing thing that was on my list is to get my pictures in order. Mission accomplished! I was behind in ordering pictures & the ones I had ordered hadn't been put in albums. I worked on that this week & last & I'm almost finished. I filled up my last album so I need to pick another one up. It may not sound like much but I'm glad it's taken care of & now I'll stay on top of it.
In other news, it's Friday. THANK GOODNESS! It's been a week. We have no plans other than watching the Saints game tomorrow. Hopefully, the outcome will be better than that other game that was played this week. I just don't want to do anything but stay home. It's cold & I don't like cold. I just want to wrap up & lay on the sofa with my Nook! Anyone have any fun plans?
