My makeup storage (the Clear Cube, but cheaper!)

12 Nov 2010

A few weeks ago I told you about the new ‘must-have‘ in the online beauty community: the Clear Cube. The Clear Cube is exactly what the name says it is: a clear box to store stuff in. The Clear Cube is becoming very popular for storage and organization of makeup. By storing your stuff in this clear box, you don’t need to go through their whole ‘stash’ when you’re applying make up. Everything will be neat and visible. It’s made out of a durable material (acrylic), so it will last forever. Click here if you want to read my original article.

The Clear Cube costs $275. And because we’re not all Kim Kardashian, I’ve been looking for an inexpensive alternative. I found this 5-drawer jewelry chest a while back, also made from acrylic, that retails for $59.95.

But…*drumrolls*…I’ve recently found a better deal! I bought these ‘clear shirt & accessory drawers‘ a few weeks ago at The Container Store. Score! 🙂

I have two, stacked on top of each other. I paid $17.99 per drawer and $6.99 for the dividers (set of 3). The total was $49.96. I also had a 10% off coupon (The Container Store has those all the time), so including tax the total was under $50!

And I love it! The drawers make everything so easy! And I also love the way it looks. I can honestly say this is the best make up organization I’ve ever had.

So here’s a peak in my personal make up collection! First time ever on my blog. Enjoy and don’t judge! 😉
