I have previously mentioned that I am not very orthodox when it comes to organizing my drawers: I may use anything from cuttlery trays to all kinds of containers and baskets.
If I am honest, I have had my eye on some Muji trays for a long time, but shipping is crazily expensive in my country’s site, so I am hoarding Ferrero Rocher containers instead (pictured above)! And now with the holidays going on it is the perfect time to get your hands on some of them, so don’t throw those containers away!
I have the much talked about Ikea Malm vanity and I am always looking for better ways of storing things in that drawer. The vanity is great as it has a good price, it has clean lines, is not too big and has a single big drawer which makes keeping your make up in one place easy. However, it has a big fault in my opinion, the stupid drawer will not open all the way! So if you put things in the back of the drawer you can not reach for them or see them properly.
Here is where the Ferrero Rocher containers are made of win! If you keep the bigger clear containers pushed to the back and the smaller containers in front of them, it fits perfectly into the Malm drawer. If you want to reach for your bigger container, simply take out the smaller ones and slide the bigger one towards the front.
The two sizes are an ideal match for the drawer of the vanity and they cost you nothing if you have Ferrero Rochers in your home.
The bigger size corresponds to a 24 chocolates box while the smaller box is the one containing 12 chocolates. As you can see above, I use the bigger ones to keep my cream eyeshadows in two neat rows (you could even put more pots in a single row on top of those two rows) and I use the smaller ones for bits and odds.
So what do you use to store your make up? Any interesting ideas?
