Hello everyone! Welcome back to our blog! So today I wanted to show you my makeup storage plus how to organize without spending much money at all. Hopefully you guys get something out of this, acrylic drawers are so expensive.
Lets jump in, here are five ways you can organize your collection for cheap.
Repurpose things you already have –
Boxes, cups, anything can work. Stationary boxes are perfect since they are shallow. I love this trick especially for right now, because you probably bought holiday cards to give to friends last month, so there is plenty of boxes around for you to use.
This Poppin desk tray was $5 and you can find little “bits and bobs” trays for super cheap on their website. In any store you can find small desk organizing trays for less expensive than anything marketed as a makeup organizer. The cheapest “makeup tray” I found was $10 and looked similar to this ($5).
I use this for bronzers, but you can fill it with eyeshadow quads!
Check bargain stores! –
TJmaxx has three shelves where they carry acrylic organizers for the cheapest prices! If you want an acrylic organizer definitely check there. All three of mine are from Marshalls and under $8 each!
Use your space for places to store items –
Little nooks can easily be filled!If your desk has a mirror like mine, usually on the sides there is three inches of space, line up your blushes or stack palettes like I did.
This is super easy, I used an old mason jar, and some small pebbles that I collected from the beach. You can use aquarium gravel ($2.99) which is cheaper than vase filler ($7)
For the second one,I used a box and put a small piece of foam on the bottom to elevate my shorter brushes. For the tall ones I poked a hole through the foam so that they stood up.
Final Product: ($25)
