I’m hoping that these pics of my main office closet someday serve as the “before” photos in a “before and after” makeup storage situation with a happy ending.
The clear bins all stacked up here are from The Container Store and purchased piecemeal over the past few years.
At least the bins are all stacked up now because they used to be literally strewn about, which was not the best use of space.
I finally consolidated them in the closet a couple weekends ago, but they’re still not totally organized.
They used to be though, sort of, when they were strewn about, before I stacked them in the closet. The improv Post-It labels used to correspond to the products in the drawers, but I got progressively more sloppy and moved some stuff around, so now I have to redo everything.
Thankfully, Post-Its are removable! (I like these Post-it Super Sticky Removable Label Pads.)
Now I just have to reorganize what’s in the drawers, and I’ll be set. The current system is sorted by brand first, then type of product, but that may change.
I’m thinking about sorting by color or formula, but I don’t know if that’ll work better. I haven’t figured it out yet…
