Do you guys remember a couple of weeks ago that I was telling you about buying some acrylic paper sorter trays from Homebase for the price of just one small Muji? Well, can I highly recommend NOT going through Homebase now, just buy it directly from Rymans. The customer service was horrendous. I ordered 2 sets, and only one arrived. We tried emailing customer service with no luck. After 3 emails and a slow response back, they finally agreed to ship the 2nd unit out. It took forever for me to get what I paid for, and they are only like 5 miles away. Unbelievable. Anyways, they finally came. So for those who see this set, I highly recommend just going to Rymans and picking these up.
Ok enough bitching, let me show you guys my new makeup storage. I'm so thrilled. I do love the look of acrylic makeup storage, but I frankly can't afford the Muji or the Clear Cube prices, so I searched and searched. I realised the problem was that I wasn't thinking outside the box. If you search for key words like "acrylic makeup storage" or "makeup storage", you will get nothing but overpriced and very small storage solutions. If you are like me, you have more makeup than you need and basically you'll have to invest in several "makeup" storage units to fit your collection. So I just searched for "acrylic" storage, and found that a lot of office supply stores had larger storage units. Perfect for my collection. I am loving this and had to share. Although my love is beaten out by the oncoming cold/flu. I'm feeling so tired right now, even as I write this, my bed is calling for me, so please don't mind the instagram photos. It's just for you guys to get a glimpse of what my organisation set up is. I hope when the weather picks up and the sun decides to grace us, I'll get some prettier photos for you all.
The inner ocd gal that was screaming at me to get a proper set up is now satisfied. I love how I can see everything, and how streamlined everything looks. So enjoy!
|2 new units and on the side are Muji storage units, see how small Muji is?|
|Just one unit which is 3 drawers|
|More eye products|
|blushes and highlighters|
|Pigments, depots and more eye products|
|Face stuff :)|
I know I don't have as much stuff as many of you out there, and my goal is to try to keep it to 2 units, I may expand to 3 if necessary, but now at least I know I can grab another unit for an affordable price and they stack up quite nicely.
I'd love to see your storage organisation, please share below :) xx
