Organizing the Stash

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share this awesome organization thing I found at Office Max this past week. Personally, I love office supply stores, I don't know why, just always have! I can't say I'm the most organized person in the world (more like the opposite) but I love finding things that can help organize me. Especially my main culprit, the massive makeup stash.

As soon as I walked by this guy, I knew it was meant to be. So I picked one up. This blue on holds all of the Concrete Minerals I own, and I still have a drawer and a half empty for more!

It has bars so the drawers don't fall out the sides or the back, they'll only pull out the front, like they're supposed to!

I'd say it's approximately 12in x 12in x 12in cube. It's made of plastic, and kind of flimsy, but all I need it to do is hold my eyeshadow and keep it organized. So it works for me in that aspect. The drawers can be a little finicky, but once again, they were only $10 a piece. 

After I picked up the blue, I went back and grabbed the pink one. (Only two colors they had) and I'm not housing all of my loose/single eyeshadows in it. The top holds single eyeshadows, the second holds single shadows, and cream shadows, the third hold pigments and loose eyeshadows, and the bottom drawer holds all my glitters!


Each drawer also pulls completely out, which is nice so that you don't have to dig around in it for things. You can just pull out the whole drawer, use what you need inside, then stick it right back in.
Between both of these, they hold ALL of my eyeshadows and glitters. All of the single ones anyways. I didn't include my palettes, trios, or anything like that. Although I'd love to get another one for eyeliners,  products, small palettes and trios. But before this my singles were just taking up tons of space on my desk, and had even spilled over onto the top of my printer! Yikes! Maybe not a permanent solution, but it's a good step in the right direction!


  1. I have something very similar for my single shadows, eyeliners, mascara, and then assorted cosmetic products.

    1. I really want one for mascaras, eyeliners, and lip stuff now!
