Lately I have become obsessed with organising. I love the feeling of everything being in order as I find my mind is so much clearer when everything is tidy and organised. I have a huge amount of make up and beauty products, far too many infact. A couple of weeks ago I decided enough was enough and set about organising my products properly. Here is how I went about it...
Previously, all my non make up beauty products were housed in a large wicker basket. Over time this has become increasingly overcrowded, products were chucked in any old way and the wicker basketwas treated to a nice tan courtesy of Fake Bake several times. I rarely remembered what products I had and as a result I would buy more and more products.
I firstly bought three 1 litre plactic boxes (from Home Bargains) and decided to organise my products in to three categories- 'hair', 'face/body' and 'tanning'. This would mean whenever I wanted a hair product I would simply go to my little hair box and look for a product rather than rummaging through a mixture of products.
I already have another small plastic box and labelled this 'mixed' for any odds and ends that I might have as well as all my travel sized beauty products.
Organising my beauty products made me realise just how many I have and has encourgaed me to use up what I have instead of spending more money on unnessesary products. It's also like a mini shopping trip as I get to shop my newly organised stash.
