This fall, my jewelry storage, makeup storage, and scarf storage all went through transformations. While I'll only be discussing three items, this is classified as a Friday Five because I have included an artistic rendering that is embarrassing and equals two bonus points.
Scarves. Last fall I put them all on shower hooks on two hangers like pinterest told me to do. All winter I fought with those asshole scarves in the closet - weighing down one side of the hanger, dragging on the floor. Our house is plagued by small, shitty closets and this scarf situation was not helping. A month in I knew this shit was not working storage wise, plus I wasn't matching them to my outfits because they were in the coat closet and I get dressed upstairs. I moved them into a bin I got for $7.99 at Marshalls. Boom. Dunzo.
Makeup. Last year I put my makeup into a silverware organizer. It was cheap and it worked well, but it sat in a cabinet in my dresser and I was never wearing it.
Muji five drawer storage that I originally saw on the Green Fashionista blog. I hemmed and hawed about ordering this for eternity mostly due to the price ($35 with shipping) and fear that my stuff wouldn't fit - well it's well worth the price and I have room to spare. I freaking love this thing.
2 - Drawer one: face makeup and concealer
3 - Drawer two: eyeliners and lipliners
4 - Drawer three: eye shadows
5 - Drawer four: mascaras and tools
6 - Drawer five: blushes and bronzers
7 - Lip stuff that's not in my purse goes into this jar.
Jewelry. I haven't really made major inroads in jewelry organization before. Now I'm cooking with gas, baby. And since I was a bad blogger and did not photograph my before shot, I will show you my former storage in a shamefully awful drawing. Enjoy.
2 - Do you recognize this? It's my former makeup organizer. REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE, BITCHES. Since I took this picture, it's been spray painted black and I'm using small s-hooks, one for each necklace.
3 - I love my bracelets. I typically wear a few at a time. Most are from Debbie Rae Designs, of course. This bracelet holder is awesome and was only $9.79. Since they're on display and not in boxes, I am wearing them more.
These trays are le bomb. They stack, they don't shit out like the plastic storage trays, and they protect against tarnishing. The two small ones are here for $10.99 each, the long one for earrings is here for $14.97.
What are your recent organizational victories? What are your organizational trouble spots? What might you like to see me cover in a future organizational dork blog post?
Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to see about a weekend. I suggest you do the same.
