Cosmetic Storage Solutions and Ideas: Really Useful Boxes

Morning world!

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!

The Muse’s Makeup Stashed Into One Tiny Cabinet

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!

Makeup+Collection+1

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?

You got the makeup now you need somewhere to store it all. I’m always looking for ways to organize my monster of a stash and The Container Store is one of the first places I hop to when I want to locate cute little draws, containers, bins, boxes, and trays for stashing away all my makeup goodies!

I’ve had my eye on a Bisley media cabinet for a while now to store away some of my shadows, glosses, etc…it’s so tiny and takes so little space but you can stash so much makeup in it! It’s still costly after the discount but it’s probably the best price I’ll find on a Bisley! I’m thinking of taking the plunge.

Lori Greiner Deluxe Cosmetic Organizer

The Muse is a big fan of Lori Greiner as you may already know from my post, upon post, upon post of her awesome storage units!

A majority of my collection of makeup is stashed away in a Lori Greiner organizer or two!

On Lori’s recent QVC appearance she spotlighted one of her new Mirrored Wall Cabinets that I am seriously having a case of the lemmings for!

Looks quite unassuming doesn’t it? Wait till you see what it looks like opened!

Open up this mirrored cabinet and inside lays a spot for just about anything and everything in your cosmetic collection! The entire unit holds 150 pieces of makeup with spots for your lipstick, compacts, brushes, and more!

The cabinet is wall mountable or you can purchase a separate frame that will hold the unit in an upright position for placing on a table or vanity.

The cabinet comes in your choice of finishes (oak, cherry, or white) and is also available in a jewelry version for stashing away accessories, earrings, etc….

I’m dying to purchase the makeup one but I’m trying to be reasonable with my purchasing at the moment! If I do get it expect a review and a rave! It’s $78 USD and available now from QVC using Item Number H06285.

The Muse loves it!

Anything Lorai Greiner is ALWAYS Muse Approved! The Muse thinks she’s aces with her wonderful creations.
