Organization Post: Meet My Melmer!!

As you may know, I am a contributing member of Beauty Bloggers HQ, where a team of Beauty Bloggers - spearheaded by Krystal of Beauty By Krystal - get together once per month and post about a common theme.  This month's topic was organization.

Here is my post from earlier this month...and MY how things have changed over here!!

In short: look below.  My beauty cabinet was STUFFED to overflowing with supplies (mostly polish, of course) and really needed a makeover.  My posting for Krystal was the drive I needed to get a move on and really invest in some storage - piece by piece.

Here is the cabinet itself, so you know what I am working with!

Next, here are the BEFORE shots.  A few are repeats from my earlier post to Krystal.

The BEFORE:

Yes, you see correctly.  Shoe boxes!!!!

My poor (small but growing) indie collection was in it's own box:

The minis also found themselves away from the group:

And, worse, the boxes were so filled that they were breaking...

NOT CUTE!! Sooo, I went to Michaels and got my first Melmer.

IN PROGRESS:

Looove this!  Might have to go ahead and re-do by brand so the bottles line up nicely. I'm also considering drawer dividers of some kind, too.

I am not sure what took me so long to invest in a Melmer. It's worth it's weight in gold, or at least, in polish.  Thanks to everyone who suggested this affordable and necessary item!
