So here’s part 2 on my storage posts & I saved the worst till last.
It’s literally everywhere & it was really doing my head in. Not being able to find whatever I was looking for was the final straw. So here’s a cheap & simple option on how I’m combatting the mess.
I picked up these 4 small boxes in B&M for £2.99 & delegated one to eye makeup. One to nails, One to brushes & one to lips. I’m going to get some more as I ended up *Quelle surprise* having more items than I had boxes to put them in. These boxes are really so handy, when I’m finished hoking through them I can just pop the lids back on & stack them vertically for more room. I also got a woven basket for £2.99 & am keeping all the the bits I use daily in here so I know exactly what is where.
While I was boxing up everything I bit the bullet & binned alot of stuff. A few eyecreams that I hadn’t even used. If I’m honest I didn’t even realise I had them. Eyeliners, lipsticks, cleansers, toners, eyeshadows etc.. These were all a gigantic waste of money as they were lost in a sea of messy makeup & were definately beyond their use by date. I really hate binning makeup. It feels inherently wrong but I’m starting as I mean to go on & making a massive effort to cut back on clutter. Hopefully this way I’ll use what I already have quicker & not double or tripple up on items.
I really hope you find this helpful. Are you a hoarder? Please tell me you are so I’m not alone.
