Most of my cosmetics live in an IKEA Alex drawer unit ($119), which I absolutely love. Thing is, I have to keep items to-be-reviewed in a separate place if there’s any hope of actually getting to them, and I don’t have enough space or cash to justify another Alex unit. I’d been tossing products into a horrible fabric bin for months, so when I saw sale signs at Container Store last week I decided to take a look.
I found these cute, stackable translucent drawers that are tall enough for even my tallest nail polishes. Best part? $7.99 each. I’ve seen cheaper drawer sets, but none were the right size or style. I like that these are translucent because I think clear drawers look cluttered.
Last night I busted out the label maker (wooooooooo party!) and sectioned off the items into categories depending on where they are in the review process. I try to take photos before I test products because it looks nicer, so I put all those products at the top. The middle is devoted to products that have been photographed but not swatched.
And the bottom drawer is for products that have been photographed, swatched, and are ready to review. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s coming soon!
