One of my favorite fun places to search for various organizing containers is Winners/Homesense (similar to Ross). Whenever you go the stock is always different so the thrill of the hunt is pretty exciting. This past weekend when we went I was on the search for something to organize my nail polishes in. I specifically wanted a divided container and one that was open without a lid. If there is one thing I have learned from organizing my makeup collection it’s that I do better with open containers for these type things.
After walking up and down the aisles for awhile I came home with this lovely yellow nail polish caddy.
It turns out it’s the perfect size for the amount of nail polishes that I have and now I have a limiting container to keep me in check for future purchases. It’s always best to have a visual boundary for the number of things you “collect”. Whenever I buy a new nail polish, one will have to go as this is the only space I have available. It makes decision making so much easier.
I keep my nail polishes in a cabinet in my ensuite bathroom. When I want to do my nails I just have to grab my bin and away I go. Everything I need is all in one place so it’s super easy and quick. The whole purpose behind organizing is to help you simplify life, not complicate it.
To make life even easier I added a spot of the nail polish to the bottles with black tops (using a q-tip) so I wouldn’t have to lift up each bottle just to find the color I wanted. Why don’t all companies label the top of their nail polish bottles?
All this organization for just $12.99, that makes me happy. I’ve noticed that at this time of the year many stores are selling caddies in their summer sections to hold utensils but as you can see there are many other great uses for these type of caddies. Keep that in mind the next time you are looking for an organization solution for your own home :)
How do you organize your nail polishes?
