All those little things you have scattered around your room, you know the bobby pins, the earrings, the hair ties, etc. – well wouldn’t it be nice if they were organized?
There are some really useful and obvious things you can do which you’ll be kicking yourself for not doing before, and they’ll really help to sort your room or your bathroom out and help you to feel organized and ultimately more relaxed, plus you’ll always know where to find things which makes life a whole lot easier.
If you don’t already have one, get yourself a magnetic paperclip holder and put all your bobby pins in there. You won’t lose them; you’ll know where they all are, and it’s a quick and cheap way to stop all those strays disappearing.
Now, these can be looped around a carabiner; if you haven’t got one knocking around already, again, they’re easy to pick up and really cheap.
Keep your jewelry together in an ice cube tray, they can fit nicely in your drawer, and if your pair your earrings up, keep them together in one section each then again you’ll always know where to find them. When you’re traveling, pop the jewelry you plan to take with you in a daily pill box. If you have any real silver and not just costume jewelry, then make sure you use silver storage bags to protect it.
A great way to organize your nail polishes is in a shoe organizer – if you have a spare, if not then go out and get one. You could arrange them by color or brand or just in order of your favorites. They’ll be easy to see, out of the way and all together in one place.
Got a toothbrush holder knocking around? These are the perfect size for holding your makeup brushes in.
Use shower curtain rings on a pole to store your scarves. This way you can hang them all nicely, they won’t get creased, and you can see what you have.
Do you have a load of lotions and potions lying around? The first thing to do is declutter, get rid of the ones you don’t use and then categorize the rest. Divide them into piles, makeup, shower gels, moisturizers, etc. Then get yourself down to a craft shop where you can buy trays with dividers in which can fit into your drawers.
Organizing can be a very therapeutic thing for you to do, so take one afternoon, put some of your favorite music on and get started. It can be enjoyable too; it doesn’t have to take long either because once you get started and into the flow, you’ll be finding new space for things and ways of organizing. You’ll likely think of new ideas of what you can put in vases, boxes or tins, so give it a go and see what you can achieve in one afternoon.
