Reorganising

This is for you Sarah!

Now that bub can open cupboards I figure it's only a matter of time until he works out how to open the child locks. Whilst I'm happy for him to ruin most of my stuff, my make-up is out of bounds. To keep my precious pretties safe I purchased another lockable make-up case to store everything in.
This is what it looked like before I started organising. When I first got organised a few years ago, I put everything in the pink tubs and it was very neat and tidy, however as you can see, things have slowly gotten very messy.
My new makeup case. 
Foundations and powders.
Eyeshadows and pencils.
More eyeshadows, bronzers and blushes.
Blushes, eyeshadows and pencils
Everything when I finally finished organising. It's not as neat as I'd like it to be, but I ran out of time (bub woke up). I couldn't fit everything into my new case so I'm thinking of buying another one. Below are the products that I couldn't fit.
 This is my Use it or Lose it pile. I'm copying this idea from Dee.
These are products I currently use, have just bought or want to use up. 
Products to be reviewed.
Things that didn't make the cut and are going in the bin. They are either old, nearly empty or I don't like them.
How it all looks now. I still need to go through the tubs on the bottom shelf, but that will have to wait for hubby to get a day off so that I can spend a few hours on it. I'm not as organised as I want to be, but at least I've made a start.

  3. Great organisation, mine is still a work in progress however I'm getting a little better. I think I really need to get on the use it or lose it bandwagon.

    1. I still want to organise further, I just ran out of room and time. I'll get another make-up case so that I can have everything locked away from little hands :)

    1. I'm a bit sad that I can't have everything in the pretty pink containers, but better to have it locked away than have it ruined by bub.

  5. That makeup case is amazing! And I love the 'use it or lose it' idea.

    It's so hard when they start getting into things, isn't it?

    1. Bub is into everything at the moment so we have locks on all the cupboards, but I know it'll only be a matter of time until he figures out how to open the locks.

  6. Wow, love this post! My train case looks really similar to yours, and I think I have the same amount of makeup as you. I'm thinking of getting another one too so that I can spread everything out and perhaps find everythng a little better! :)

    Thankyou for posting this!
