Warning — this is a drawer that even shocked Stud! Typically, I maintain an organized home. One of my favorite hobbies is implementing systems that simplify life for my family — it is totally fulfilling!
But when a space is used just by me, sometimes I let it slide. Like most moms, there are few areas that are exclusively mine — let me introduce you to my makeup drawer, aka, my junk drawer!!!
A couple observations worth noting — 1). I have had a teenager complexion over the last few stressful months, so much so that I asked my doctor what I should do about it and she gave me the samples that sit unused in my junk drawer. 2). The toothbrush in this drawer has always been used as an eyebrow brush. 3). I bought the pink eyebrow trimmers on the top right side of the drawer, a few months ago. They seemed like a great concept, but old fashion plucking works best for me. 4). I like Cover Girl Aqua Smooth Compact Makeup during the summer months because the application is so fast an it adds another layer of sun protection. 5). Over half of this stuff is trash! After tossing the trash, I finally put to us Drawer Organizers that I’d purchased when we first moved into our traditional home a hear ago.
A while back I wrote a post about decorating made easy with contact paper — I love this stuff. There are so many uses for it and today, I used it for the intended purpose — lined a drawer! I can’t believe how much better the drawer looked when you couldn’t see the flaking paint and flyaway hairs!
And this is how the drawers are looking twenty minutes later! Eye necessities bin, makeup bin, lipstick tub, eye makeup dish, a sections for makeup brushes, my toothpaste and toothbrush, and an assortment of rubber bands.
I’m kicking myself for living a whole year with all that chaos!
