Try as I might, I can’t avoid the siren call of The Container Store. Sure, it irks me that a store can survive on the premise of selling you new crap to store all your present crap, but desperate times call for desperate measures!
I reached critical mass last weekend. My lipstick disorganization finally crossed the line. For the past few months, tubes just kept disappearing and reappearing in the strangest places (How does a tube of lipstick find its way into a kitchen soap dish?).
Luckily, my sanity was only $1.79 away. The Container Store sells these clear accessory boxes designed for belts and jewelry, but they’re also the perfect height to store tubes of lipstick.
I fit all of my MAC lipsticks into a single box (about 60 tubes, youza!) with the labels up, so I can identify each tube at a glance. The $1.79 boxes come with a cover, and Container Store was smart to make the boxes stackable, too.
Hands down, this was the best $1.79 I’ve spent in a long time. I never thought I’d say this, but, Container Store … today I kind of don’t hate you.
Well, I closed my eyes this morning and hoped that when I opened them, it wouldn’t really be Monday morning, but — big surprise — it didn’t work.
I hope you have a great day. We’ll make it if we stick together!
