If you follow me on Twitter you might remember my tweet about putting together my Ikea Helmer Drawer Unit. Happy days it was quick and painless.
Wanna see the results?
Time gets away from me in the morning when I’m busy applying my 30 some odd products. That’s why I obviously NEED some place to store not only my cosmetics but some place that will give me the time of day.
Check this out!
Everyone have a good weekend? The Muse is hoping so.
As we are in the New Year I imagine one or two people made a resolution to get more organized. I know it’s always one of my top priorities when it comes to life, makeup, etc…I like everything to be as organized as possible without organization I tend to get a bit crazy.
Recently I had to stop at Staples for some office supplies and came across some great little boxes which were super cheap and super useful.
Take the Jump for the details!
Last week I told you that The Container Store is having 25% Off your entire in store or online purchase. It’s still ongoing if you’d like to indulge btw, up to April 13th w00t!
I had a hard time deciding whether I wanted to indulge in a Bisley Media Cabinet or a Helmer Cabinet from Ikea. I finally decided to throw my hard earned cash on the Bisley since it’s incredibly sturdy, very tiny, and fantastic for stashing away my makeup!
Jump ahead for the deets and pictures of my Bisley stuffed full of goodness!
The Bisley Media Cabinet is meant for collectors, particularly collectors of stamps or baseball cards. I don’t think Bisley was thinking anyone would want to stash cosmetics in their fine cabinet but that’s exactly what I decided to do. The cabinet is costly and even after discount it was an obscene amount to pay but it organized about 40% of my makeup stash and made my life alot easier so that in fact makes it priceless.
The unit is super duper tiny! I’d say it reaches from my ankle to my upper thigh. I’m 5″1 so it’s not exactly a whole lot of leg we are talking about here (exact measurements: 11″ x 15″ x 23-1/4″ H).
I feel guilty but I ended up also purchasing some of the dividers that are sold separately from the unit. Each divider has different slots for storing small items into. They have various styles of these dividers to customize your cabinet. They are rather nice and make organization key but I’d much rather they include these with the purchase of the cabinet.
Anyway! Without further delay here’s some pictures of everything stored away nice and neat.
I’d honestly love to indulge in another cabinet to organize the rest of my monster stash but I think it’s a bit too much of an indulgence. Now I did avoid the Helmer from Ikea since it comes with the drama of putting it together plus I don’t think it’s nearly as sturdy as the Bisley. But maybe I’ll just get the Helmer for my second round of storage as the Bisley was rather expensive.
How do you store your stash?
